New Filson coat

Looks like Filson is heeding customers suggestions regarding making their coats and jackets more comfortable. They are lining their new wool coats in coton lining for one thing.
Also, interesting to me, they seem to be responding to 2 "threats" or areas of competition; one on the lower end; where they introduced another more affordable line with synthetics, and to answer the high end, have introduced a new Streetwear line - cotton lined, slimmer profiles, not as much oriented to the hunting/fishing/outdoorsmen crowd, but at least as much as to the more urbanish/stylish customer - with a priceline to match. Maybe looking at the Woolrich Woolen Mills crowd.

Check this out - rather nice looking I think. I'd get one in a heartbeat, if I didn't already own their double wool Mackinaw. And they now offer their waxed cotton jacket in black, not just green and brown.

Interesting. I love my original Mackinaw but I've thought about seeing how much it would cost to get a satin liner stitched into it - it's scratchy as hell.

Also, how do you know they are slimmer cut?

I am kinda guessing by looking at the jacket; I could be dead wrong though. I am also looking into getting my double mackinaw lined as well.

This isn't a good sign.

The 'lodge collection' of non-US made stuff that they had going a few years back was terrible. They should stick to their classics and keep doing collabs like the Levi's stuff if they want to get beasted.
