Various online stores have had coupons that have been used for Filson items and some will ship to the UK. Likely cheaper than sourcing from within the EU,
A recent example - Brooks Brothers sell the 257 for $300 and they recently had a 25% coupon that could be used on the 257
which would bring it down to $225. According to their site Brooks Bros. will ship to the UK for GBP 5
. So, if I am reading everything correctly, you would be looking at approx $235 shipped. Not sure if you would be open to getting hit by any additional import duty/taxes, despite the Brooks Bros. site indicating that they are included in the GBP5.
Absolutely buy it from US, European retail prices are unreasonable but I noticed that this year they have lowered them, the 257 years ago retail far above 250£
I ordered last year two 256 from Crane Country with member discount, and I paid around 210 Euro total for a bag, duties included.
Considering that Italian RRP for the 256 is around 400 Euro, it was a great deal.
However I think that the 25% off during BB F&F sale it's the better price ever for Filson Bags.
Last year they were sold out in the colors I wanted and I have ordered them from Crane's.
