Filson Bag Thread: With Pictures - Page 258

post #3856 of 4379
Dear Intent, all comparable models like Filson made in UK cost about the same, dear SVEND002, there are two quite different reasons why Filson is liked: collective or aesthetic. That you do not recognize why Filson is liked may have several reasons, however likely is no experience in canvas and other materials not leather and lack of aesthetic cultivation in judgment of design. You write you do not want to be seen wearing a suit with a Filson - this judgment belongs in the collective domain. The more individual a human develops, the less dependent he is on mental pictures which are fixed and enslave his mind. The Jain Indian big boss ("CEO" or Commander-in-chief etc) of Deutsche Bank uses a plastic rucksack. In reality, persons responsible for power of finance should be artists, just as medical doctors need to know how to help their patients.

Your judgment about canvas and Filson bags is relative to other possibilities which are far more expensive. Nobody says there are not more "impressive" bags, although you don't take the trouble to exemplify. This thread is for a certain socio-economic audience of predominantly North American mentality. I want to say I am very impressed by the human beings with whom I arranged replacement of my Filson rucksack. Filson does not bullshit. Chriz and Josh are excellent representatives of Filson. The replacement bag seems to me somehow better made than the bag I had, and I don't mean the problem I had with the canvas disintegration. I praise Filson for many reasons, not the least because I believe and hope their employees are paid and treated fairly.


I cannot say I was treated fairly on this thread, but the thread initiator Lawrencemd helped me very much. Without his advice I would not hsve known how to argue with Filson.


Blind chickens can find corn, too!

Some persons are directed by collective concern - they wouldn't want to be seen wearing a suit and a canvas bag. Others are aesthestically aware and recognize Filson's design beauty. Still others are middle-class kids who want to follow trends. Or practical jocks.

It's just a canvas bag, not so impressive is relative to what you did not bother to exemplify. Who questions there are more beautiful bags, but at more expense.

Filson showed me they keep their promise. Chriz and Josh replaced my rucksack. No bullshit.

I thank Lawrence here because he explained to me why many of the posters didn't understand my problem. Lawrence was right about Filson - no bullshit.

I hope Filson and the persons who make and sell the bags flourish.

Where did you get the strap - custom-made or off another bag ?

Cool. Curved shape or straight ?

I seem to recall an old image of a briefcase with a custom strap that was curved and it looked as if it would be pretty comfortable when carrying a heavy road warrior load in the 257/8.

Straight with slight taper. Very comfortable and doesn't slip. Pic of strap.

i like the slight taper on the strap but i once had a briefcase that had a curved and thicker part and it just got in the way when storing it back in the briefcase.  It didn't really add to the extra comfort so now i only get them with straight cuts

Is that a blue 257 I see in the Hyundai world cup advert - the one with the chap trying to get home from the office without finding out the score ?

Edit - It's a Hyundai and not ESPN ad.

Hmm maybe not as the strap doesn't attach at the sides.

^I'm glad to see it worked out in the end for you!

Dear Lawrence MD,

Thanks for your acknowledgment above. Yes, it worked out in the end for me because you took the trouble to answer my private messages and gave me the crucial advice how to speak to the Filson representatives at Filson website customer service. After I posted my problem about canvas disintegration of my Filson rucksack here, I was attacked as someone inproficient at expression in English, called "a pretentious fuck", "troll", etc. The only person who expressed any genuine concern for my problem that the Filson customer service avoided any continuity or constructive solution was you, Lawrence, but I didn't have the software to post photographs of my bag here as you requested. My girlfriend could send photos to Filson, but not post photos here. I only have a primitive cell phone. The first thing you replied when I resigned from further posts here and wrote you privately my regret about the mobbing here was your offer to help me buy a new bag. You also pointed out that not many Filson rucksack owners posted here, in fact, you speculated that most persons who have rucksacks buy the cheap Asian models. I noticed that no poster at the time I sought advice here wasted a word about social conditions of Filson employees. You told me posters here couldn't understand my difficulty because return and replacement of Filson products in the US is easy. Then I wrote Filson customer service again and said I was told by Filson fans what you wrote me, and at once Filson customer service changed their attitude! I wish I knew how to deal with the mobbing phenomenon here on this website - I have been called "idiot", "plonk" etc. on various threads here and suspended without warning "to develop other interests". These antisocial posters enjoy their sadistic games and gleefully support one another online in a choreography of intolerance and other social poison, one uses the title of "moderator", others are empowered to freeze threads and "jargon verb" "trolls" and whatever other jargon used to defame posters they dislike.
