Proper People love the Great Outdoors; don’t we?
At least we love dressing and accessorising like we’re ready to grow a Giant Haystacks like beard and wrestle Grizzlies in the American wilderness.
Filson are one of three U.S. brands (alongside Woolrich and Pendleton) with truly authentic heritage that allow us to do that. A classic label that have been around an age and are still using their knowledge to produce relevant and excellent pieces today.
The Great Divide have just taken delivery of some new Filson pieces which fall into the Rugged Americana category very nicely.
A selection of ‘Made in the U.S.’ bags: briefcase, totes and travel bags – all with leather details, straps and brass zippers.
It’s the ‘Carry On’ travel bag (*does Sid James guffaw to himself as he writes*) that really stands out as a stout and sturdy stunner.
Made from 22oz heavy weight cotton, with an oiled finish and Bridle leather straps and zip pulls it’s available in either tan or navy and will help make you the smartest weekend traveller the Klondike has seen this side of The Gold Rush.
You could go all out and pair it with the Filson Cover Cloth Weekender Coat; a lightweight yet strong waxed jacket which uses Filson’s own paraffin based wax to add an increased wind and water repellency. Pockets aplenty and a Moleskin lined collar are enough to begin to make this jacket rival some of the very best South Shields has to offer.
