Filson and Levi’s, Part 2

The latest batch of Filson x Levi’s goods were put out for sale today and I walked down to the flagship store here in Seattle to see them in person. Some thoughts and observations: – My favorite from this set is the sawtooth shirt made from dry finish tin cloth and oil finish tin cloth [...]

Filson’s bridle leather belts are among the best on the market, and at just under $50 each they are some of the most affordable. You can get them in any color you want, so long as it is brown with brass hardware. Still made in the USA.

Filson Upland Chukka Boots

I was recently able to track down a pair of the older USA made Filson upland chukkas from a small store out in New England (I’m still working on a pair of the Highlanders). The upland boots to the right in the pictures below are my pair of choice to wear out in the field [...]
