    Don’t know about the twilight zone, but very probably!

    I had a back and forth with Filson CS about something last week, clothing related rather than bags. My answer was also from Austin Curtis, which makes me wonder how many people they have running CS replies there.

    Given the expertise here, we really should be in touch with Filson about a product development panel or focus group.

    Ha good question. Couldn't agree any more, at the very least a focus group via Skype.

    Right. I’ve sent an email to the UK retail head that @TinMan3 and I met before Christmas. I’ve offered our talent as a focus group, and asked the question about what volume would be required for a custom run. We shall see what the reply is...

    To add credibility to their explanation, these bags had the old plated brass hardware on them. So it is very believable that they were not part of a new production run.

    I’m sure that what they “found” in there warehouse were unfinished goods. Maybe just boxes of cut leather, twill, and straps. They then just had to put them through the assembly line to have them manufactured resulting in a modern build tag. Btw @OtterMeanGreen I am very impressed with your investigative skills!

    Thanks! I try I guess lol, comes from all the experience with that whole "BOYT" debacle lol.

    That would totally make sense if that was the case, which we will see "if" she responds (that might be a big IF though :lurk:)
