    Hmmm, I just tried the OCTOBERFLASH code at haberdash, no luck. I've been in the market for a duffle and was bummed that I didn't jump on the Brooks Brothers 30% corporate day a few weeks back.

    Hi there,

    I really love the bag. Would you like to sell that bag?

    I lived in Bangkok too.

    Thank you.

    Dang, I got all excited for a sec. But alas, the code isn't working for me either, and the site was painfully slow (as everyone in the sales alert thread is reporting as well). Guess the code is only for apparel items, bags not included. :confused:

    [​IMG] The 242 has found a new home with a fellow member T-Ton. Thank you for all of your comments and suggestions. The 232 is my ideal replacement. Shall return with photo(s) and some review after acquisition and some use.

    My thoughts exactly. Don't get me wrong, it is a gorgeous bag, but I can't picture spending that kind of coin on a tote. I do like some of the new additions, especially the blue twill. I spotted a blue briefcase in person in Nordstrom and can't wait to get my hands on a medium duffle in that color.

    I know! Where else can one find this quality for less than 10 Benjamins?

    Hi guys,

    I'm finding this thread really helpful! any black friday deals I should be watching out for? I'm waiting for a good deal on a navy twill and tweed.

    Thanks!

    I just had my first Filson customer service experience and I had to share. I had a rucksack that was pretty beat up. Actually, that's an understatement, it was my go to bag, and I even posted a pic of it a couple pages back to show how Otter Green can wear over time. On my last trip, a week long trip to Napa, my bag met it's demise. First off, the zipper, which had been temperamental, finally gave and one pull came clean off the rails. Then the canvas tore through, and finally, the leather strap broke clean off at the seam. I sent it back to Filson thinking, that since the bag was well worn, I'd pay a fee for a repair or have to finally upgrade. I was told, that the leather strap was unrepairable, and that a new bag was on it's way. Just like that, I couldn't believe it. I would have loved to have the Old Faithful repaired, but it just wasn't in the cards. I own a number of Filson pieces and this was the first issue I've ever had. Good to know that "Guaranteed for Life" holds some water.
