    Any recommendation to get a Navy Original Briefcase with discount and ships internationally?

    Second question: What's the difference between the 'Twill & Tweed' briefcase and the original in waxed canvas?

    Took this picture while boarding a flight to YVR ... great examples of aged otter fabric.

    Posted this in SW&D, but wanted to share here as well. Haberdash in Chicago is doing 20% off all merchandise for Labor Day with code "LABORDAY20", including a ton of great Filson bags.

    They also said they got another shipment from Filson this morning that isn't listed on the site yet, and I'll post that info here as soon as I hear what they got.

    What's your thoughts of using the Medium Duffle Bag as a daily bag to the university and stuff? Would the bag be too huge?

    Size is too big but the main concern would be the complete lack of any organization inside the bag

    Looking for an inexpensive briefcase? Anyone know where/when I can get the 256 or 257 for the lowest price?

    how do small frame guys carry the 257? i really love the look of it. but the bag looks so big with me, especially when i sling it. :embar:


    on a side note, anyone has a fit picture of the wool 256? I'm thinking of exchanging my 257 for the wool 256.

    How about the medium field bag? A bit smaller width- and height-wise.
