That makes sense. I ended up picking up the tan last fall as nobody had it in brown.

PSA: Cable Car Clothiers is doing a 30% sale (call or email only). Last year Filson was included and this is one of the best deals if Filson is included.



I think the only other sale that was better was the recent one at Brooks Brothers. I think the selection should be better with Cable Car too. Thinking about picking up the Oregon Trail Jacket as a birthday gift to myself in a few weeks.

Not without modifications, i.e., there are no d-rings to attach them to. The straps on there are typically long enough to throw on your shoulder though.

Using ParkandBond's prices. Pricematch with WorkingPersons and get an additional 20% off the difference. Free ship and Tax free.

Nice. I sent an email inquiry and got a response that made it sound like Filson was included. I have not called to order yet.

From the workingperson website,
Please note: At the manufacturer's request, our 120% Price Protection Guarantee does NOT apply to Filson products.

I called to ask, sales rep confirmed parkandbond. Gave me the price of $86 from Parkandbond's $95 for the tan rugged zippered tote. Took my info and processed. Waiting to receive confirmation.

What about using hanksclothing.com prices to price match with workingpersons + 20% disc, if the rep you get allows for that - I think that would be a pretty good deal.

Eh. I personally don't like the idea of trying to "get away" with something I know is against a store's policy just because their SA's aren't well trained or their website is buggy (a la the occasional Alden that slips through during J. Crew sales). To each their own.

As for the tax thing, there is no such thing as "tax free". There is such a thing as not being charged sales tax, but you'll note the next time you file your state income taxes that (if your state has a sales tax) there is a section on "use tax", where you are technically supposed to declare and pay tax on anything purchased outside the state and used within the state. Do most people do this if not forced to (like when trying to register a car purchased out of state)? I suspect not. Does that mean you're not technically on the hook for the tax? No, it does not. Again, to each their own.

I honestly missed the part about the DOES NOT APPLY to Filson products, wasn't trying to deceive anyone. If it goes through awesome, if it doesn't oh well.

FYI, regarding the Cable Car pricing online, apparently the website is outdated and the prices are not correct. I called to purchase a 256. It's shown as $215 online but the guy said the price was $235. It comes out to $181 shipped in that case. So the deal isn't quite as crazy, but still seems pretty good IMO.

That is interesting and a shame that they are charging above the Filson price of $225. I will need to double check with them on the Oregon trail jacket before ordering, but I don't think it will get cheaper than 30% off list or even $10 above list.
