Golden Bear

Golden Bear Sportswear, one of the great heritage companies of America, was founded in San Francisco during the early 1920′s. Our classic, vintage American styling has always been the reason for the success and longevity of Golden Bear. In the early 1900′s, San Francisco’s destination shipping industry created a market for durable dockworker jackets. Golden Bear jackets kept the longshoremen warm on cold and foggy San Francisco nights

In the 1950′s we began to produce The Varsity Jacket, the Bomber Jacket, and the Motorcycle jacket. We made award jackets for high schools and colleges thru out the USA. In the 1960′s the music scene exploded in San Francisco. Just as the love children flocked to Golden Gate Park, famous musicians found their way to our workshop. Members of the Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, The Doobie Bros and many more traveled to the Mission District, anxious to create a custom jacket for their band.
