    +1 for Cable Car Clothiers. James was wonderful throughout when I ordered my Pullman last year. I'm not located in stateside so my order could've easily been turned away (As it's a big bulky bag) but it was processed and sent out extremely quickly.

    Most likely. Well, I definitely won't be returning either, but whether I'll keep both for myself, I'm not certain yet. Probably will though.

    I got their catalog today and just pictured all of those bags in my closet. It's a sickness and Filson's the cure!

    If anyone is trying to decide on a colour for the 256 (or any bag for that matter) and is concernced that the otter is too green/pale/grey/whatever, let me tell you it is a great colour and photos don't nearly capture it well enough. It is a rich, foresty green that complements the brown of the leather really nicely and makes it great with a suit. I love the tan for the duffle and was very tempted to get the 256 in the same, but I couldn't be happier with my decision to go with the otter green.

    FYI - Five Mile Club out of Athens is running an annual 20% off Filson sale. Click here

    They all the briefcases (256, 257, 258), all the duffles, wheeled carry-ons, Rucksacks, suit covers, and travel kits (among some other odds and ends).

    How do you store your Filson bags?
    Mine are not currently in "rotation" and they mildew up really quickly!
    It's quite painful when I feel like using one of them and I know it's going to take me about an hour prepping and drying before using them.
