A San Francisco Treat

This is...or quite possibly may be just as good as RICE-A-RONI! San Francisco shop UNIONMADE has just launched their online shop and just like the original "San-Francisco Treat", UNIONMADE is sure to please. With some serious collaborations underneath their belt (literally) these guys continue to kill it. Take a look at their recent collab with local sportswear purveyor Golden Bear. I've been searching for a perfect lightweight varsity jacket for quite some time and I think I've finally found one. This is a classic piece of outerwear that's a definite "must cop".

*Additional Information
We teamed up with local sportswear company Golden Bear (est. 1922) on a new set of cotton varsity jackets. Made in San Francisco's Potrero district, the jackets feature timeless styling with a contemporary twist featuring tartan plaid lining and leather pocket details. During the 1950's, varsity jackets became the rage among high school and college students. Just as in the 1960's with the culture radically changing and styles with it, Golden Bear provided the dockworker jackets worn by many a famous beat poets and rock stars such as Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, The Doobie Brothers and the Grateful Dead.
