I went to the grand opening tonight at the Naperville IL store. It was awesome. Whiskey tasting, beer and bbq was readily available with a live band and lots of Filson fans. I may have even recruiting a new member to the forum or two. I’m excited to have a retail store so close and look forward to the many events to come!

This is the only store that's even close to me. I'll be headed there next time I fly through Chicago.

What is the difference between the tan and sepia colors? They look extremely similar on my screen, with the tan maybe having more of a yellow cast to it. Is that accurate?

think of sepia as a faded or pre-worn tan, basically. Tan is more yellow for sure.

I picked up the zipper tote in cinder and I really like it. Very spacious. I do feel like the cotton twill used on it is thinner than on my 256, but I'm not sure I would want a tote to be super stiff anyway

I bought a zipper tote as I saw a gap in my line-up for something larger than a briefcase when I wanted to carry a laptop, textbooks, NR headphones, charger, power cords etc. but easier access than a backpack.

The design seems like the optimal under the seat/personal item for flights too. I think it would pair well with a small roller suitcase.

Perhaps we aren’t all style-less dinosaurs after all. This pic featured in a UK Sunday newspaper in a feature on how stylish men in Paris are decorating their apartments...

I’m afraid having a Filson bag is probably the only item I have in common with stylish men from Paris.

On a related note, I suppose in France, having ‘Un Filson’ briefcase is possibly a lot less common than stateside. Unless they have opened up a store there too.
