Jacket (down)

Eddie Bauer

Established 1920

Founded in 1920 in Seattle by Eddie Bauer (1899 – 1986), Eddie Bauer is one of the most well-known brands in the field of outdoor clothing. Bauer revolutionized outerwear by inventing the first ever quilted goose down jacket, which he would patent in 1940 as the Skyliner (as pictured above). Also, Eddie Bauer was the first independent company that was allowed to use a logo on Army-issued uniforms.

Eddie Bauer’s former parent company, Spiegel, Inc., went bankrupt in 2003. Eddie Bauer currently operates various independent sales channels via Eddie Bauer Holdings, Inc.
