The fabric is so so and the needle work is just bad. Huge stitches, loose threads everywhere.
I have seen some jackets that Leonard Logsdail has made. those were quite nice!
Does anyone else share this opinion of the Filson jacket? I am interested in buying one, but I've seen photos on eBay which kind of confirm the comment about so-so fabric and the clumsy stiching (it's not possible for me to view one in person before buying).
I recently picked up two older safari jackets via eBay: one older Banana Republic (with number sizing) and a Tilley (long discontinued). The BR jacket is particularly nice and old ones in good shape show up on eBay quite regularly - strongly recommended.
Filson customer service told me today via email that their bush jacket (#10051) has been discontinued, at least temporarily, although they didn't seem 100% certain. They did say they have a few sitting around so interested persons should call them and they might have your size.
