    it seems as if they're out of most filson things....would it be a bad idea to get the gilt deal and just sit on it until the filson stuff gets back in stock?

    What is the best way to remove dark indigo denim stains from the 256 bag?

    By closing your eyes. Live with it as patina is my best advise, they are difficult to remove.

    dude thats the best part. it shows you actually use the bag. from personal experience, the brown colored twill bags are less prone to denim patina.

    Not unless you're sure they will come back in stock before August 12, when the "promotional value" expires and you just get the value you paid. I was going to get another one, but they said the item I wanted would be restocked late July and I didn't want to take the gamble of being stuck with it if that didn't happen. Plus, lots of the stuff that says in stock right now is actually not.

    That's retail. If you want it now you can check in with Crane's. They are an affiliate and have a thread going. You have to call them and tell them you want the styleforum discount. Not sure what the percentage is right now.

    Wow, looks like the small duffle bag jumped from $235 to $260, too. I remember earlier this year the small duffle was at $225 before the $10 bump.

    The 257 went from $275 to $300. Travel Kit is now $95 from $90. Even the Travel Tray is $26 from $24.

    Shame. Hopefully some of the third party retailers haven't updated their pricing yet and people can still grab a couple of deals. Onward Reserve still had the Small Duffle at $225 price point when I ordered.

    On that note, anybody get a shipping confirmation or received their items yet? When I ordered, the small duffle was on backorder and then the next day I saw on the product page it was OOS. I called to confirm I wouldn't get screwed and they said both the briefcase and duffle I ordered were on backorder but it was part of their next shipment that should get to their store early this week. Still crossing my fingers...

    I got mine. Shipped the next day. My large duffle was listed as "backordered" but then showed up with the rest of the stuff.

    People of styleforum, thank you so much for introducing me to Filson. I'm a student and on a budget, but I was able to snag a wool duffle for ~$130 from Clymb not too long ago. And then a week ago I found a 257 in tan (this is what I most coveted for school and work) on Gilt for $260 with a 30% off coupon. Dreams DO come true!

    I love the 257 and really enjoy the duffle too, although I wish it were a little more structured.

    My question to this fine community is this: how do you think they look together? As I said, I'm a student so I don't think anymore Filsons are in the immediate future. I would love to use both together for school/gym or a short trip. Possible?

    The 257 looks horrible with the duffle. I'll take it off your hands for you if you'd like
