Eddie Bauer - From sporting goods to adventure clothing
Eddie Bauer was first established in 1920 in Seattle by Eddie Bauer. He opened up his shop, 'Eddie Bauer's Tennis Shop' at the back of a hunting and fishing store. At first, the store specialized in building and repairing tennis rackets. Eventually, Bauer expanded the store and its range of merchandise to include Bauer's own handmade golf clubs and fishing tackle. The store of the name was then changed to 'Eddie Bauer's Sport Shop'. While on a winter fishing trip in the 40s, Bauer developed hypothermia so he began creating alternatives to wool clothing used by outdoorsmen. He eventually patented a goose down jacket and his business changed to outerwear, what it is still selling. Today there are over 350 Eddie Bauer stores, employing over 10,000 people worldwide. Its headquarters lies in Bellevue, Washington and it is owned by Eddie Bauer Holdings Inc.
