Spiewak and Sons, Inc - known as Spiewak, are an American outerwear brand. Spiewak is famous for their military style clothing, specialising in Parkas, MA-1 Flight Jackets, Bomber Jackets and Peacoats. Founder, Isaac Spiewak was born in Warsaw, Poland and moved to the United States in 1903, settling in Brooklyn, New York. There he started a small family business, making sheepskin vests by hand and selling them on the docks of Williamsburg in 1904 - the first Spiewak garments. Only two years later, Spiewak’s vests were in high demand, and Spiewak found a small factory in Brooklyn, calling it ‘House of the Golden Fleece’, after the greek legend of the Golden Fleece. The moniker ‘Golden Fleece’ was first branded in 1919.
Joined by his brothers, the Spiewak company expanded into other outerwear garments, also making clothing under different names and brands. During the First World War Spiewak made wool coats and trousers for the US Army and Navy, including their famous Peacoats - these are still made by Spiewak today.
When the Second World War broke out, Spiewak made more and more clothing and uniforms for the US military, including flight jackets, parkas, deck jackets and tanker jackets. Spiewak continue to make uniforms for the American forces including the police and fire brigade. At the end of the Second World War, Spiewak began to make clothing for civilians too.
Spiewak is a company which values it’s history and heritage, making high quality jackets and coats to their tried and tested specifications in premium fabrics. The Golden Fleece name and the winged ram logo is recognised as a symbol of quality - “The Gold Standard of our Outerwear since 1904” the label proudly claims.
