drove up to the filson outlet in burlington, wa the other weekend. definitely worth a stop if you're in the seattle area. although, the burlington outlets overall are pretty underwhelming. the filson spot is a far cry from the retail stores which are really nice, the outlet store is bare bones but has some great deals. my fiance bought for $50 a waxed cotton jacket that is basically the weekender with an attached hood. they also have a "vintage" corner with some used...
i didn't find that the suede stretched much, but because it's it unlined it is more forgiving.
swung by jack straw on my lunch break, so close to buying the aero jacket. i've been looking for a nice spring navy blue jacket and was leaning towards a baracuta g9, now i'm not so sure. also tried on the driver's jacket, that iridescent khaki looks really cool. andover jacket is great too, although it fit me weirdly. if only i had an extra $1500 to spend on jackets. wanted to say how pleasant the guy was in jack straw. i've stopped by before and had a less than...

i hate that the winn perry website still exists out there teasing me with excellent makeups
[[SPOILER]] i vote to keep the roys also, but i prefer a plain toe boot.
has anyone ever seen a detailed description of different types of welts?
I'm doing a little spring cleaning: Snuff suede chukka, size 9E, on the Leydon last. These feature a single oiled leather sole (aka the flex welt sole) and are unlined, making them ideal for the warmer months. Being in Seattle, I find myself not wearing these often enough to justify keeping. I find that the leydon last runs narrow width wise, but tts in length. Purchased last summer from the Alden San Francisco shop. Sprayed with suede protector when new. Asking...
