    Yah – from what I can tell, the Golden Bear stuff is assembled in USA, not Made in USA –
    pretty big difference in standards. I mean, it’s impressive what they do with US factories, but a US factory does not guarantee the products meet the, “Made in USA standard.” I can’t tell where the hides come from. Claims look dubious to to me. Are there any journalists left to explore these claims?

    @michael No there aren’t. Everyone got laid off as no one would pay for the media they consume.

    @michael If the leather Golden Bear is using for these jackets is tanned in the USA then these jackets absolutely qualify for what the FTC refers to as an unqualified Made in USA claim. Given that the zippers are a negligible portion of the jacket’s manufacturing cost. Even if the leather was not USA (I have first hand experience with the golden bear factory and know that they do use USA leather and other components) they can still make a qualified Made in USA claim which would read something like “Made in USA from Italian Leather”. Your statement that the jackets should read “assembled in USA” is incorrect. I urge you to read up and understand FTC regulations before continuing to spread misinformation.

    I very much like Sid’s southern drawl – and his line “everything goes with the night sky” – a genius salesman. However, I cannot tolerate the cameraman/”interviewer.” He is horrible…and what’s worse is he seems like an employee of Sid’s. God. I hope it’s not his son.

    That will soon be a reality and a really sad day for the world.

    Look up the archives of Alton Brown’s podcast (The Browncast). He has a great interview with Mr. Mashburn.
