Black Bear Brand originated from a label of the same name that had been part of the American clothing landscape for almost 100 years. Desiring to carry on the heritage of its forbearer, the rebooted Black Bear Brand takes reinterpreting classics very seriously.
In anticipation of the inevitable cold months, Black Bear turned to fellow maker Crescent Down Works to collaborate on a small capsule of outerwear. Crescent, for its part, has been churning out completely custom down jackets since 1974. That said, it only makes sense that the collection should include down shirts, a down parka, and a down vest.
Working out of a small factory in Seattle, the duo combined patterns that have been popular in the Northwest for decades with high-quality fabrics, and 700-fill white goose down. These items are all about warmth, durability and optimal performance.
The down shirts are retailing for $410 while the vest goes for $265, and the parka $495.
