In case anyone was curious.......it's a gorgeous fall day here!
Those pics are awesome - you're going to get OtterMeanGreen all excited!
Gz - thank you for clarifying on the strap.
And +1 on the pics. Lovely.
I rewatched the FRD promo video earlier. Here in case others haven’t seen it:
Cool video. You can almost smell the musty canvas and worn leather in that room. I need to make a trip to Seattle one day. We should all do a meet-up there with Filson bags, whiskey and cigars.
I'd be all for that. I'm heading to Seattle next month....you know where I'll be stopping
I realize you are selling those Talon era bags and not amassing a Talonite arsenal, but I don't know how you do it!! I couldn't be surrounded by all those one-of-a-kind masterpieces all day; the smell of all that pre-bedrock leather and the vintage twill....I'd have a constant woody to be totally honest
Cross Body with a fully loaded Talon era Medium Duffel??? We all can't be "Men Men Men men MANLY men men men" like our friend @Soletrane
Since the straps I was referring to are Pre-Bedrock, Talon era pad-less straps I'd be even more curious to see if they offered the same options way back when....or if each bag had it's own length based upon the functions and intended usage
That's a real beaut you got there...respect to a fellow Otter Green man
HAHA nice YKK's, I'm glad even when you don't see a Talon you think of me.....
You had me at Whiskey and Cigars.....I AM SO THERE......only bring a gas mask cause I don't think you could take anymore mustiness after your "little" Talon era 256 project
Too late....I'm in a public place too
I'm going to brave it out and take it on the road with me next week. I'm home this week so it's currently sitting outside in the Florida sun - trying to dry it out as much as I can. Not too bad, really, but I'm most worried when I'm sitting in a small conference room with my customer and it smells like an old Army Surplus store in there.
I may spray it with some cheap vodka as has been recommended but, since life is too short to drink cheap anything, I don't have any cheap vodka on hand.
It is nice to have all these bags. Hard to sell them as well, but it's what I'm doing. No need to hoard as I have a good amount of $ currently invested in my stock. I keep and use my favorites and move on when another beauty comes along. 'vintage' market has slowed a little bit right now and should pick up shortly, I will be ready. I do enjoy seeing my rack of bags on a daily basis though
I'm trying this Instagram thing and might be able to help move some product...Those pics were my first, but not my last. going to try again today with another lovely 256 and tote.
Speaking of that tote, I was cleaning it this morning in anticipation of taking a picture and was able to paper date the tote thanks to a receipt inside. Leather is absolutely amazing for this talon era tote....
Sweet! Is that a pic of the receipt for the bag itself? Was trying to make out the store info.
I have pretty much decided I am only buying the old Filson stuff moving forward. The peeling/pitting on new Filson leather is just not acceptable to me when I look at their old gear.
