post #721 of 735

Hey guys,

I'm fairly new to styleforum, and I'm sorry if I'm totally tangenting here...
Headed to seattle next weekend and was wondering how the filson store is! I really want to purchase a rucksack, and I hear there are awesome in store discounts. Can anyone lay down the knowledge on me on how that works? Is this a thing or just hearsay?

Are you talking about the main Filson store in Seattle or the outlet?
You're not going to find discounted stuff at the main store.
The outlet is about an hour north of Seattle in Burlington.

Kind of interested in the down cruiser jacket. I would be interested to know if anyone has tried one on and is able to share an opinion on the fit? I'm thinking boxy? Any places to get a good deal on one over the forthcoming turkey holiday? Any real-life pics out there?

Oh, I was not aware of this outlet. Do they have a good variety of products or should i not bother with it.

Like many "true" outlets, it depends on the time you visit. Filson doesn't make products especially for its Outlets (to the best of my knowledge), so you're seeing returns, seconds/imperfections and other odds and ends mixed w/ limited 1st run items at a moderate discount.

That's my limited experience with it.

I'm debating between Filson rucksack and Tanner Goods Wilderness. Filson is significantly more affordable but not sure if it can store a 15" MB. Also I've had few Filson pieces already so kinda want some change...

there's a Filson outlet in town and that was what I gleaned from their store. It appeared they stocked either unsold items in specific sizes, overruns and the like at a moderate discount. some of their stuff wasn't discounted at all. To me an outlet store signifies discounted merchandise, but that wasn't really the case with Filson.

Looking to pick up an original briefcase but really being torn back and forth on the color.

I had originally wanted the green tweed version but have decided to go with a normal one instead, flipping between green and brown.

My usual wardrobe is casual, the most formal is be looking to match with would be a chocolate brown corduroy blazer with denim, or a medium grey peacoat / hereingbone blazer with either denim or some earth tone cords. Given these looks would one look better than the other?

I really like the green, but feel the brown would be more versatile and may match up better with spring summer stuff than the green. If I went green I might pick up a tan version for warmer months - might not be a bad idea haha

(Although only green is in stock locally and I'm notorious for seeing something and just buying it rather than waiting for stock or a sale lol)

I like the green idea.

Looks like I'm gonna have to make a trip to Burlington soon. Didn't know there was an outlet there.

I tried on a 44 cruiser (alaska fit) and will try a 42 when my local store gets it.

But I am interested in the 'seattle' fit as the one I tried on is a bit roomy..

Also, seems like the Made in USA coats are all made out of 'imported' material. Anyone else notice that?

I am 5'10", 200lbs, 36" waist, with wide shoulders.  I'm generally a 43 in tailored suits and sport coats.  I recently purchased a Seattle Fit Mackinaw Cruiser in size L.  For me, it's not a "skinny jeans" urban fit, but rather a cut that works well for temperatures from the 50's down to the 20's or so.  It fits fine over a base layer (button down shirt or long underwear shirt, and a thin insulating layer (Patagonia nano-puff jacket, or a thin wool sweater).  I still have good range of motion for typical stuff (walking my dog, loading the car at the mountain cabin, making/throwing snowballs, etc.).

 

I think that the Alaska fit is intended to accept THICK middle layers, like burly wool sweaters and the like, and allow the wearer to chop wood, run a chainsaw, etc.

 

As always, your mileage may vary, etc....

I only have experience with the Seattle fit. I own the tin cloth short cruiser and cascade shirt, both of which are in the Seattle fit. I went with my usual size large on the cruiser and it fits great. However, I went down a size on the cascade shirt to a size medium. Had I gone with a large on the shirt I would've been swimming in extra fabric. The shirt does shrink after washing/drying so it's now perfect. I was told by Filson to go with my usual sizing on the shirt but advised to go down a size from Asher Goods. I'm glad I listened to Asher Goods.

That moss coat looks amazing.

Hey all, new to this thread but not to Filson.  I just wanted to share my newest Filson acquisition - the Adjustable Hunting Coat.  I was able to pick one up at a discount.  I don't think I could've stomached paying full retail at $725.  

 

Overall it's a fantastic coat.  It's weight reminds me of tin cloth, but it's much more supple of the rack.  It's simple, but really functional.  It reminds me of a Barbour on steroids.  Anyway, I included a (crappy) picture of the coat slung over a chair at work.  I'll try to take better pictures when I get a chance.  I can't wait for this thing to full break in.
