1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    What would be the best jacket for throwing on in 30f weather with just a tshirt on? seems like everywhere I go people blast the heat and I'd rather not layer.

    also, are filson vests good for wearing under motorcycle leather? I want to ride through the winter but am unsure how to layer for this as it will be my first time winter riding.

    I'd vote for the Mackinaw wool cruiser on your first question. Comfortable across a surprisingly broad temperature range, and the pocketing is super useful for stashing hat, gloves, scarf etc.

    On the second point I'd wager a Mackinaw vest would be perfect under motorcycle leather. I wear one under a Carhartt Detroit Duck jacket when working outdoors during particularly cold weather & it gets the job done without binding or feeling overstuffed in the jacket.

    I recently bought a filson oil/wax tin cloth jacket off auction, and I see darken areas (not spots/dots) in various parts of the jacket
    • sleeves
    • cuffs
    • bottom
    Surprisingly, back of the jacket doesn't have much, if at all, of these darken areas
    This is my first time handling a waxed garment, so no idea what I should expect
    Are these darken area simply wax that have not wear out yet?
    Overall feel of the jacket is not "waxy", so I can't tell if the wax wear out already
    It certainly does not look waxy to me (no sheen or oily)

    Thanks!

    Those sound like high wear areas to me.

    Hi, if you're based in the UK or EU and after a Filson watch it's worth checking out the UK TKMaxx site. They have a Journeyman (£256) and a Scout (£192) model on sale just now. They originally had the Journey man at £399 which is too much but at this price surely worth a punt?

    I like how they took their own pictures of the products.


    Eh, I think the money can be better spent on other brands that dedicate themselves to watches.

    Bought both of these in the sales recently. Love them both. The navy is kind of close fitting and suitable for a night out and the plaid looser and great over a t shirt. As always, great quality
