Thanks, gents.  I was pretty happy with this idea, but my sewing skills are pretty lacking...so I had to lean on my wife for her sewing abilities.

She hand stitched it so that it wouldn't go through the top layer.  Filson bags are supposed to look rough and relatively ragged, but stitching through the top just would've bad, imho.

 

For those interested, here is the font that I used and here is the printable fabric that I used.  I tried printing on my standard inkjet, and the text ended up looking pretty bad...so I then used my photo printer, which resulted in perfectly clean text.  Also, if you want to get it close to the color of the tag, you'll want to add a layer of almost pinkish-yellow underneath the text to give it that off-white look that exists on the actual Filson tag.  Certainly doesn't matter in the end, but given I spent a while trying to match the font/layout, I figured it wouldn't hurt.

 

Hope that helps.

Has it been established if the material used for navy is lighter in weight than the tan or otter green? Or was this just in the other lines/collaborations? I ask because I placed an order for a navy 256 with brooks brothers, but wouldn't mind the tan color if the navy is indeed flimsier. I used the search function but it seems like there was nothing definitive, and ended with speculations.

Can anyone in Toronto recommend what oil/condition they are using that is available in area. 

 

Thank you!

Just received and officially joined the club! Applied LP on all the leather.

I think someone said that the 4 numbers above the "s" indicate manufacture date (month and year), but not sure how accurate that is. In your case it would be May 2013.

I don't know if I'm allowed to do this but I have brand new Jcrew Filson twill field bag and black rucksack for sale. Please PM me for details but I'm selling them for about 30% off.

So I’m new here but I just wanted to say a huge thank you. I’m a college student who was looking for his first briefcase and I stumbled across this thread. Hearing you guys talk about Filson got me really excited and I knew it was what I wanted.
 
After a ton of google searching/waiting, I found a store online called W Concept that’s selling the Navy Original Briefcase (256) at 30% off ($157.50). If you sign up for their email you get an extra 20% off and free shipping. I finally decided to take the plunge and got mine for $126. Sale lasts all day I think!Just thought I'd spread some Christmas cheer. :-)
 
Happy Holidays


256s for $126 -- lowest price I've ever seen.  Will it come back again?

22 ounce waxed twill. Collabs are a different story.

Urban Outfitters had them for $99.99

Nice to see all the sales though, remember the day I got my medium duffle after the local retailer agreed to give me a whopping 20% off to encourage me to choose them over crane's. lol8[1].gif

It doesn't bother us at all what anyone else does. When we see someone selling Filson at these kinds of prices it just means another "dealer" is biting the dust.

Why are you so confrontational? My point was I was happy with a 20% discount then, when now 20% seems like nothing. I bought a filson from you guys too like 2 years ago but all you do is troll on this thread and the wolverine thread.

If you consider that confrontational I don't know what to tell you.
