We've been making our products in San Francisco since day one and our trips to the factory take us back and forth across the Golden Gate Bridge almost daily. Here is a tidbit from NPR about the unique color of the bridge, International Orange: 

The color came about thanks to Irving Morrow, the Golden Gate's consulting architect, who noticed the striking reddish-orange primer painted on some of the steel.

Morrow designed the bridge's lighting and its art-deco styling. He also championed the unusual color. Most bridges were gray, silver or black. It was expected that the Golden Gate Bridge would follow suit.

"He had to convince the Department of War, the permitting agency at the time, that the largest suspension span ever built at the time [should] have this wild crazy color," says Golden Gate Bridge spokeswoman Mary Currie.

The bridge's construction began in 1933. Two years later, Morrow made the case for the wild color in the 29-page document, Report on Color and Lighting, which he presented to the bridge's board of directors.

 
When choosing a color for our garment dyed Coverall jacket, International Orange immediately came to mind for obvious reasons. The factory that makes the jackets is 10 miles south across the bridge from our studio in Sausalito and the jackets are dyed 10 miles north of our studio. The color was meant to be.

    Looks great but I'd size up

    I'm 6' 165lbs and I usually wear a medium, but I sized up for this and got a large so that my shoulders would comfortably fit.

    Great Jacket, Strange Pockets! (Good and Eh)

    Posted by Bryan on 31st Aug 2020

    Fast shipping, great color and material. The pockets are unique (which is the point)! The only pocket choice that brings it down is the pencil-side pocket which has a strange half-stitch split. You cannot fit your hand fully in the pocket on cold mornings because of this.

    Supremely well-made, and a beautiful colour. I am 176cm tall, 85kg and the medium fits me perfect!

    International orange coverall jacket

    Posted by scott on 5th May 2020

    Great jacket. Fabric is like a heavy-duty chino pant. (Mid-to-heavy denim still feels thicker.) Color new is awesome. Thought the coat would be slightly longer; it's more like a dress shirt, but all around. It's OK with me now, but for ref. Pockets are neat, and... zany. They could be any shape at this point; who knows how they'll get really used? Size: large. Fits perfectly; unwashed as of now. Have wider shoulders; 6', 180#. Feels identical to L in Stock denim jacket... which is BEST value (and product!) for US denim jacket available. Do wish right panel pocket button holes were vertical... SO minor. Wearing the GG Bridge when I'm wearing this, wherever I am.

    nice jacket, strange fit

    Posted by lkuebler@spartans.ut.edu on 22nd Oct 2016

    I've been eyeing this jacket for a long time, the color and amount of pockets make it ideal for my job working as an inspector on ships. The fabric, construction and design are all top notch.

    However, tellason really needs to rethink their fit on this garment. I am 6'4" and in pretty good shape, with long arms. The sleeves are much too short. In addition the shape of the body is much too boxy. If this jacket came in a more fitted cut, not tight, just not so loose, it would be perfect.

    In short, not all XL wearers are fat!
