^ He said he was sorry that I'd had a negative experience with their product and offered an exchange. Also commented that while the denim was a different hand than their rugged twill, he was confident that it would last and was a quality product, and thanked me for taking the time to provide feedback.

Isn't the denim bag lined with canvas? What's the quality of the lining?

It is, but it's nothing like the canvas on their canvas bags. The whole thing seemed rather flimsy.

So basically he's happy with the new lower quality Filson products. Awesome, all he needs to do is move production to China and his vision will be complete.

Nothing is more ignorant than when ppl think only the only high-quality goods in existence are manufactured in the USA. Someone's been sippin Michael Williams' Kool-Aid too much.

i agree that I was expecting the denim to be sturdier, but I still think it's a quality product. the leather and hardware on mine seem on par with the other filson bags ive seen. mine was also shipped in a box not a bag, so i dindn't have any of the creasing issues. All that being said, i'm probably still returning mine because its so small and doesn't hold its shape as well as I had imagined. just wanted to give another perspective to those intrerested in the bag.

China is a metaphor for shitty products. Has been for some time now. I never said only "made in USA" was the only way to go, you just inferred it.

I dont think the Mackinaw Cap has gotten much discussion in here, but I ordered it using the coupon and I'm very happy with it. Tough rigid cap and the earflaps/neckwarmer is really nice. Gonna be perfect for Winter and trips out of town. For some odd reason it was shipped in a plastic bag and not a box. Fortunately nothing was damaged.

It looks bad...

Like you said, it looks really bad that one. Not the one I'm looking for

I also had a great experience with them recently. What are you planning on exchanging it for?

Got my shooting shirt today, sending it back tomorrow. Comically gigantic. I'm generally an L in most brands; this shirt goes down to my knees, and the reinforced shoulders make it look like I have shoulderpads on.

Oh well, at least they make the returns easy.

Nothing, just going to return it. I read the offer to be an exchange for the same item - he mentioned the creasing that occurred during shipment and stated that they would do a better packing job. That's really a minor thing; had the materials been better it wouldn't have been an issue, just gave me an idea of what the bag will look like after some use.

the entirety of the past few pages really makes me wonder; this collection seems like a few more filson products that aren't really all that different from their current selection in materials, construction, fit(sorta), and pricepoint. What's the crux of this offering?

Michael Williams is the Don Corleone of this blog shit, brah.
Just got my Filson x Levi's Trucker today from the Filson website. Paid $258 including shipping to Canada. Crazy, I know. I ordered a Small and this shit is tight. Just packed it up and sent it back for a Medium when they do get it hopefully on Sept.21st according to their site as of today. They even updated their entire site navigation.

I can fit into a the J.Crew x-small Red Chambray shirt and usually wear a 36-38 Blazer/jacket.
If anyone cares here are the measurements for the small trucker:
Filson x Levi's Trucker is 16" s2s, 19" p2p, 19" p2c, and a 17" waist.

Btw, the tin cloth does not feel waxy or greasy whatsoever unlike Barbour Wax Jackets.
Filson also includes the $9 Oil Finish Wax can for free.
The tin cloth creates nice creases on the jacket but can be simply removed by blow drying it and it look like new again.

This jacket is extra crispy, brah.
