Last week, Kirsty and I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening party celebrating the Filson Flagship store’s new Seattle location. What an amazing event Filson hosted?! Complete with catering by famed Seattle chef, Tom Douglas, a chainsaw woodcarver creating art out in front of the store, and live music by the band Portugal. The Man.
For those lucky enough to be living in the Seattle area, I would highly recommend a trip to the Filson store. A Seattle institution for more than a 100 years, you can now shop in the retail store upstairs after watching garment makers handcrafting their iconic luggage and durable outdoorswear on the factory floor below.
Did you know that Filson offers a lifetime guarantee on many of its products? You can either exchange any worn or damaged apparel or luggage or have it repaired, right in this store. Filson also sells repaired merchandise at this Flagship location. Personally, I prefer the patina of the well-worn luggage pictured above.
Below are a few things we were eying last week that are sure to please outdoor enthusiasts and fashionable urban lumberjacks alike:
Men’s Eagle Cowichan Sweater
(I saw a woman wearing this one – it was amazing!)
As always, thanks for reading. Happy Holidays and cheers! ~Jenn & Kirsty
