Nice. I would consider selling my otter green 256 to get one of those.

Styles mentioned in this thread:
Really liking Filson's 1897 collection. Just pre-orered an "Alaskan tuxedo" -- the Forestry Cloth Cruiser. I also liked the crimson Mackinaw from last season.
I picked one of these up from Hilton's Tent City (15% off with a promo code they aren't shy about sharing with you on their site). People have been fussing on the Filson site about it being a little slim-fitting, which was music to my ears.
For those who might be curious, here's what it looks like in the flesh wool:
This is a 36; I'm usually a 36 and this seems to me to be a fairly generous fit. But with a sweater it works, and it seems perfect for layering a vest underneath, so I'm not sure I should have any tailoring done.
Anyone want to talk me into taking it to the tailor? The sleeves are a little long and it pooches out slightly in the lower back.
(Please also note these are my first-ever fit pics. SO IT BEGINS.)
Oh, and in a little bit of serendipity:
I got No. 16 of the No. 16. FILSCEPTION.
Weinbrenner used to make most of the Filson boots before they moved to the DR. Doubt Wolverine once they came back to the US, no offense but they aren't even close on quality for real field use. On one of the hunting BB someone recently mentioned that his new Filson boots had a stamp inside that said made in the Appalachian hills of Pa. which brings up several possibilities. Not sure if his were old (pre DR) or new.
The weekender jacket fits reasonably slim. If you're 6'6" 150 lbs, it's not gonna fit, but if you're 6'2" 190 lbs. it would probably be a good fit.
drove up to the filson outlet in burlington, wa the other weekend. definitely worth a stop if you're in the seattle area. although, the burlington outlets overall are pretty underwhelming. the filson spot is a far cry from the retail stores which are really nice, the outlet store is bare bones but has some great deals. my fiance bought for $50 a waxed cotton jacket that is basically the weekender with an attached hood. they also have a "vintage" corner with some used stuff.
Whoa that is cool! Next time I am visiting my family in the area I will definitely have to make a stop there. Thanks for the knowledge.
