Shinola x Golden Bear MA-1 Wool Bomber Jacket

Aug 30, 2016

Category: Style

Bomber jackets may be one of the most American items of clothing out there. Originally developed to keep airmen warm in open cockpit fighter planes during the First World War and then again during the second, the jackets found their way into our closets just as aviators found their way back into life stateside. Now, with colder weather approaching, Shinola and the San Francisco based clothier Golden Bear have teamed up to give the classic jacket their own spin.

One of the most stand out parts of the jacket has to be the bright orange quilted polyester lining. The Shinola orange contrasts strikingly with the navy wool put together by the nearly 100 year old Bay Area work wear company. Originally Golden Bear made jackets for those who worked in the foggy and cold docks on the peninsula, and now with this collaboration, they’re using the same quality materials and attention to detail that originally gained them a following. Featuring a tough double ended brass zipper with leather pull tabs, snap welt pockets with soft interiors, and a ric rac ribbing around the collar and hem – this California made bomber be sure to keep any wearer warm through the fall. Prices set at $515. [Purchase]
