    Man and here I thought some online retailers would have a summer sale coming up to lower the price, instead it goes up [​IMG]

    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

    Haha omgitswes, I'll keep that in mind.

    And I should have iterated. I'm a late bloomer and in my late twenties going back to school. I mentioned it to note that I have no money for a new bag (lord knows I want one, or all). I know it looks better than most of my classmates. I really don't care what they think, haha.

    I was just wondering what the general tan with black consensus was. I'll probably be using them for some travel this summer regardless of how good (or bad) it looks.

    Looks fine man. No sense in having your bags match.
    Good luck with your classes though

    i am on the train with a 257 and a small duffle right now (office + basketball comp afterwards).

    I get so many compliments on my matching tan bags, mainly from the ladies actually.

    I was able to order the Original Briefcase, but only by going to my local UO store. They wouldn't take an order over the phone. As of 1 hour ago there were only about 15 left in the system inventory.
