Filson still cranks out quite a bit of US-made classics:

I have been lusting after the Westlake jacket for some time, and they just released a couple more very interesting jackets and vests...a couple of my favorites:

I do like that second jacket a lot. Looks like Alex P. has been working his magic.

Seems as though they've expanded their offerings that are made in the factory- very nice!

Eagerly awaiting some side-by-side comparisons of the Alaska vs. Seattle fits that they're doing now.  I imagine Archival Clothing is going to be all over it soon.

No, Archival is just really good at posting pictures of how Filson stuff fits on normal sized humans, I bet they're already planning to provide some visual reference regarding the two fits.

Just guessing based on their Filson coverage in the past.

Ah, I see. That will be good.

My understanding is that Filson is working on rebranding and updating the fits on some of their pieces that have gotten repeatedly up sized over the years.
Would be nice to have some of their stuff have a more consistent chest to sleeve length ratio. I know hunters need a little more room to store game and keep their sleeves out of the blood (schooled by Setterman) but not everyone that likes Filson is a hunter. I wear their stuff to work as a gardener, and the requirements differ, as do those of probably most outdoor jobs.

Mr. Randal, what size was your FilsonxLevis vest?

I am wondering about the soy waxed fabric. Maybe it is a lighter attempt at waxing.

I really like it too.  Would make a great grouse/woodcock hunting jacket.  Too bad it wouldn't be legal to hunt in PA with it as your outer layer though. Cry  Need 250 sq inches of blaze orange on your head and torso to hunt upland birds.

better to look like a "clown" in blaze orange than be shot at by a "clown" who may think you're a Grouse :)

Oh, I know!  I always make sure I have lots of orange on, especially during rifle deer season!  But with Filson, and what I'm seeing from other upland hunting clothing manufacturers, they're either not using any orange, or not enough.  If they're going to make this nice hunting gear, it would be great if it had enough orange on it and was actually legal to wear!

I read that the Soy based wax is environmentally friendly compared to the older oil based wax. Also, the soy waxed products can be washed a few times, before re-proofing is needed.

I really like the look of that parka on the bottom, but the Italy line is always really hard to find in the US.

I have a size S in the Filson x Levis Original hunting vest. Took some pics today- about 2 years of use.

I'm not positive, but I think I recall seeing that one at the factory store when Alex had just gotten there, so it would have been in the pipe before he was on board.  If he had a hand in killing off that whipcord vest with the black chrome buckle and grommets that looked like something that fell off the Kenneth Cole truck I'll give him kudos.

I think Filson deserves a bit of a jeer for what they're doing with this Horween collaboration:



First of all, in my opinion, its appearance is...questionable.  And it costs a thousand dollars.

But the real shame is that they're shouting and trumpeting about how Horween is a great American institution, while completely snubbing Wickett and Craig, the tannery that has provided all of their belt and strap leather for many years.  Including, ironically, the strap leather for THIS BAG.  No mention of Wickett and Craig on Filson's site anywhere, ever.  W&C is a great tannery, and makes a product every bit as good as Horween's, it sucks to see them treated this way.

Filson is clearly riding the wave of Horween hype, forgetting to give credit where credit is due.  Filson could likely boost W&C's notoriety with a single tip o' the hat on their website or catalog.  W&C already lists Filson as a client on their own site.

I know that a lot goes into making a bag of this type, but I too wonder how Filson arrived at a $985 price point.

Perhaps it had something to do with the private equity firm that recently sold the Filson brand to another private equity firm. Everyone's out to make a profit after all!

Anyone ever pick up this jacket?  If so, how's the fit, and more importantly, how well can you move in it?

Hi, just been reading this thread with interest. I've been looking for a water-repellent coat I like for last few weeks and have recently been thinking a lot about the tin cloth cruiser Alaska fit (below)



Available online here in UK https://www.largamworks.co.uk/product/filson-tin-cloth-cruiser-alaska-fit-10005" rel="nofollow - Largam Works

However after reading quite a few reviews I'm wondering whether the extra long version would suit me better.. 

The problem being that I can't find anywhere in the UK where I can get an extra long online. Does anyone know if the new London store can get any Filson jackets for UK customers and whether you need to actually visit the store itself to buy it or if you can order from them online/over phone?

Cos when you go on the website for the Filson London Store (see link below) it's just a link to the worldwide Filson website and UK customers, according to the main Filson website are not catered for i.e. UK customers cannot have stuff sent to them from the U.S. (why I have no clue but I imagine someone round here will know??).

Cheers

I might be wrong SK but I think The Liquor store might have both of those in stock at the moment. Unless the extra long is a different model again

Hope you find what your looking for.

The guy who owns it is very knowledgable and helpful about Filson and has in the past offered to order me filson vests in, he may well do that with the jacket. If he hasn't got it in stock.

That's really helpful SDL cheers ...they've got the tin cloth seattle fit in stock which I am now considering - much appreciated mate.
