If you’re well-versed in menswear, you’ve undoubtedly heard of San Francisco jacketsmiths Golden Bear. For those who are not well versed, you’ve got some learning to do.

They’ve been around for just shy of a century and have not wavered a bit in their mission of making superlative, timeless outerwear for all seasons. To this day, jackets are all they make, which means they must be doing something right.  

In recent years, they’ve collaborated with everyone from Mr Porter to Game of Thrones, and thanks to their quality, they always fetch a pretty penny. Luckily for you, we’ve uncovered a trio of great pieces currently on sale at Nordstrom’s in plenty of sizes and colors, and all for under $400.

Waxed Cotton Car Coat
A mid-thigh-length, water-repellent jacket featuring a satin lining. Works great as an overcoat, and despite the name, can also be worn outside of a car.

Harrington Waxed Cotton Jacket
Raglan sleeves add an extra layer of sophistication. We recommend the red, but it’s also available in black and khaki if those are more your speed. And like the car coat, it’s water repellent.

Flight Jacket
Made from nylon ripstop, this jacket is water-repellent (sensing a theme here?) and features rib-knit cuffs and hem for a proper fit. The spread collar ads vintage style points as well.
