Oh I LOVE this one!
there you go:
limited to 30 pieces worldwide??
389 euro is kinda steep...
Christ, it also comes in red!
390E is fucking nuts though.
After that I got n more word from Filson and none of those places carry the briefcase. They do carry the totes and the zippered totes.
Steven Alan has the red label unzippered and zipper tote bags
And their prices are actually the same as the original filson tote bags.
also see my previous post regarding the red label:
"I got the navy version and sold it a week later - it's softer but you'll see every bit of dust on it and it's very hard to clean. never happens with the otter green version. also, the leather feels a lot cheaper - almost like fake leather."
Is the tan leather not bridle leather?
It is bridle leather according to Filson. I actually went to a Steven Alan store to check the bags out. I personally think the leather on the red label bags is roughly comparable to that on the original filson bags. But the canvas is definitely thinner. I think the red label uses 18 oz canvas versus the 22 oz canvas on the original filson bags.
LOL...I paid 434 Euro for my Rutland Medium duffle..and that wasn't even including shipping from Europe!!!
Damn rip-off! Damn stupid to buy it..LOL!
Do you guys install the grips or are these just for customers who want to install the grip themselves?
I got my blue 257 red label for around 270€ off ebay.
Don't know why so cheap but it is definately a real one!
A personal shopper seems a bit extreme. There are plenty of stores with excellent customer service, I shop at many of them. This was a pretty simple case, however, Unionmade entered in to a contract that they did not fulfill and then jerked me around for weeks. So I will always recommend avoiding them.
I'm a rookie in regards to Filson. But which bag would you recommend for traveling for a week or so, the medium or the large duffel?
