FILSON Spring 2014-Apparel-Men's


Filson-an American company circa 1897…makes the kind of utilitarian clothing and accessories -with  good looking design elements and classic silhouettes-that fashion only types wear it ---as well as rugged types who thrive outdoors in all sorts of weather.

Weather tough fabrics that ward off the wet cold climate with proprietary finishes…like coated water resistant Soy Wax cotton, Tin Cloth and Mackinaw Wool-are often matched with high end textiles like durable waterproof Cordura, insulating warm when wet Polartec +Primaloft One, genuine bridal leather (accessories), made in the USA vegetable tanned Horween leather--- and top of the line finishings like RiRi zippers and heavy gauge double stitching… guaranteeing that ANYTHING by Filson has a looong lifespan.
