FILSON is a lifestyle brand as far as we are concerned...we wouldn't be surprised if they intro'ed a cologne at some point. That's how strong s brand identity the label has---for its iconic cotton field, Shell, Oil Finish and Oil Tin cloths, wool, and waxed denim materials---in rugged outerwear for flyfishing, stylish urban outerwear, durable handsome luggage out of twill---and a bevy of collaborations with other American Sebago and  Levi's.

Well made---Filson luggage comes in sporty and travel friendly shapes and sizes---made of water resistant twill, sold brass hardware and leather trims.
