lots of new arrivals on the website: 

 

http://www.filson.com/mens/new-arrivals/-1015/

 

looks like they are rolling out a new "Seattle Fit" line that is more form fitting and not the "boxy" feel as mentioned in previous posts: http://www.filson.com/mens/seattle-fit/-1016/

To those of you that are getting your jackets tailored, was it hard for the tailor to do? I'd like to get the arms and body taken in but I'm afraid a tailor will screw it up.

I was in SF yesterday at Cable Car clothiers. They have a lot of the brand new Filson bags, vests and jackets. Here is a link to the new shorter trimmer cut tin cloth jacket. On the Filson website they show it unlined. At Cable Car they have a version lined in nice red and black plaid. You can se it here:

Does anyone know how the Seattle fit Mackinaw Cruisers fit now? I have a 42 inch chest, 40 inch torso.. would I be a medium or a large? The Filson site is maddeningly vague. :(

I searched this thread and didn't find an answer concerning this - how do Filson's wool bags age? I'm interested in buying a wool field bag but have no idea about the material. I have it in canvas but it's too rough for my tastes so I guess wool could be a nice alternative..

Anybody knows the THICKNESS of the Filson Belt??

 

THANKS!  :)

I just picked up a Weekender in Seattle Fit in small and figured you guys might be interested in a fit picture.  For your reference, i'm 5'9 and 155 pounds.

 

 

Overall, the fit is pretty spot on.  The shoulders are the right width and there's enough room to layer throughout the body.  The arm holes are a little big/low, but I suppose that's to allow for layering.  Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try to answer them.

 

However, the chest area can be a bit restricting as I put my hands into the hand warmer pockets on the sides (the motion causes me to expand my chest and bend my elbows at a right angle).  Once my hands are in the pockets the chest no longer pulls.  Is this something I should be concerned about?  Or is it natural for such a motion to cause the chest to be a bit tight?  Overall, the jacket has good mobility and I would say it offers the same range of mobility as a buttoned suit jacket.

 

Thanks for your help!

the fit looks great actually. I was wondering how the new seattle fit would look. bummer about the chest pulling a little bit but i guess that isn't too uncommon when you have a slimmer fitting jacket. if it's not too bad, i'd keep it if i were you. looks good

Looks great. A worthy replacement for the filson/levi's trucker. The collar could use some kind of contrast in texture though, I think.

Thanks for the fit pic. I have a Weekender in the standard fit and it is my favorite piece of outerwear. I wish they would have offered the new Seattle fit a couple of years ago. However, mine doesn't get overly tight with my hands in the pockets or any other movements - it still remains just as comfortable. Did you try on the regular fit for comparison?

I'm hoping to pick one of those up for the fall too. That jacket was pretty much love at first sight.

Off to visit my hometown for 10 days. I love my Filson bags - best luggage I've ever used.

Yeah this would look even better with a brown collar.
