I'm interested to see how VP stitches the leather to the bag, definitely a plus point for them over Filson.

Guys, in all fairness, this is a FILSON thread...lets keep it subjective?

If Filson quality was what it used to be, we probably wouldn't be discussing other brands.

^ exactly.

 

I'm still waiting on my VP bag, and I'm all the more excited for it now - thanks for the pictures gmanoftheroad!

I'll also mention that I first came to this thread to research Filson bags, and I ultimately purchased one based (largely) on what I read here. But if I were looking and researching today, and I saw these discussions about Filson's obvious decline in quality, I'd be looking around for alternatives (like VP). 

 

Knowing what I know now, I definitely wouldn't purchase another Filson (not new anyway) - perhaps these discussions will spare others some hassle and disappointment.

Late 80's early 90's catalogue, i dare not look at the prices then...

Are there any other pages available as scans ?

I'd be interested in seeing any older catalogues.

Thanks

I got this page from the archival clothing blog from a few years back, there's a couple of pages from the same catalogue, plus some other ones here and there:

4strongwinds,
Thank you for the link. Surprised to see there were 3 different types of leather satchel including one called the "Rood Satchel".

Looks like the small duffle bag back then doesn't have the storm flap. The current ones do. I wonder why did they change it.

 

There was a mention of a different brand because some members felt Filson was not living up to their standards. I think when it comes to aesthetics, the Filson bags look much better than the look-a-like bag shown above. After all this is StyleForum and we care about looks above all else. Plus Filson quality is still very good even if there newer stuff has a slight quality drop compared to the previous years (which might not even be true, I was looking at their bags in stores this weekend and I still like the quality of the goods).
