About Eddie Bauer
Eddie Bauer is a well respected American company that runs the Eddie Bauer clothing store chain, which is based out of Washington state, and specializes in outdoor wear. The slogan for the store is “The Original Outdoor Outfitter” and their clothing has been worn by several explorers on expeditions, including Jim Whittaker, who was the first American to stand on top of Mt. Everest. The Eddie Bauer chain includes retail stores, outlet stores, and a website for direct orders. The company was first founded back in 1920 in Seattle by Eddie Bauer himself and in 1940 he patented the first quilted down jacket. The company took off from there and was bought and sold by a few different companies but is now owned by Golden Gate Capital. Today there are 370 Eddie Bauer locations throughout the United States and Canada. When you shop at their online store you can sign up to have sales and coupon codes emailed to you so you never miss a deal. You can also sign up for Eddie Bauer Friends, which is a reward system, and even an Eddie Bauer credit card.
