Where To Shop: Our Top 5 Snuggly Teddy Bear Jackets

Beeaaarrrr necessities.

POSTEDBYDEE CUNNING

You might already know about the origins of the teddy bear. It was 1902 and United States president Theodore Roosevelt (or Teddy) was out on a bear hunt. After a bear was finally captured and tethered to a tree, he refused to shoot the poor animal and set it free, the incident leading to a famous political cartoon in The Washington Post, and inspiring a toy-shop owner to produce a commemorative toy bear named “Teddy's Bear.” Well, it was only a matter of time until the toasty double-breasted coats of the same material, fashioned to keep drivers warm and comfortable in their fancy English motor cars, became known as Teddy Bear Coats. Fast-forward to the '60s and the Teddy Bear Coat turns rock and roll, a dandy favorite of Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger, and lasting through the subsequent '70s Glam Rock era.
