It might seem that way, but I think that's just product photography. I own 4 Filson bags, some of which are from Filson directly, and the others are from Brooks Brothers...and all are exactly the same color (otter green).
Exactly. When I saw these, I more or less made my wife buy them. She's a teeny thing (5'1" 110 lbs) so she can pull off things that are generally men's wear really well. She has learned from me about the importance of good quality leather and craftsmanship, and given we live in Maine...buying OSB or Rancourt handsewns is a no-brainer, especially when they're half off.
