This jacket started life as a Golden Bear design decades ago, when the team at Taylor Stitch stumbled across one of the originals they discovered that the archives department at Golden Bear still had the original pattern files – and the two companies set to work creating a re-issue.

Each jacket is handmade in San Francisco by Golden Bear from chrome-tanned, drum-dyed, 3.5-oz. full-grain steerhide. Internally it has grey insulated diamond quilting, a 3″ collar with a hidden snap down, there are twin outer zippered breast pockets, twin reinforced welted side entry pockets, a YKK antique brass main zipper, and YKK antique brass zippered sleeve cuffs.
