Filson x J. Crew – A Great Fall Collaboration
Answered Prayers: J.Crew and Filson have teamed-up on a collaboration. Talk about a win-win ! The new capsule collection features four pieces that Filson designed for J. Crew for fall 2013. The capsule collection is comprised of two of Filson’s iconic bags and two of its most sturdy jackets, in spot-on color combinations exclusive to J.Crew. In a fall palette of olive, navy, and charcoal, the collaboration taps into Filson’s sturdy rugged twill and wool. As per their tradition, these pieces will get better with age and stand up to whatever you can put them through.
The Rugged Twill Field Bag is ideal from work to weekend. This bag has a large flap that closes completely so nothing bounces out in your daily trek. With full-width open rear pocket and two open side pockets, it is a easy-access, versatile bag. The padded bridle leather shoulder strap and doubled-bottom were both designed to stand up to extra-heavy loads(don’t just think work here, booze bottles can weigh us down too!). With two expandable front pockets (just right for some game day flasks), are perfect for your wallet and/or phone.
The Original Briefcase, is tough enough for everyday use, wherever your work happens to be. Two full-length open pockets are inside the wide carrying compartment. There are also compartments for a calculator, business cards, pens and pencils. With four external pockets, this is almost a desk on the go. A more durable briefcase in fabric would be hard to find.
The Yukon Wool Guide Work Jacket, is rugged, and dare we say, a practical jacket. With underarm gussets for excellent mobility, this jacket has an updated trim fit. It has enough pockets (six) for bringing along whatever you need. A cell phone pocket provides easy access for communication on the go.
The Yukon Wool-Lined Seattle Cruiser, Filson’s thickest, heaviest Mackinaw Wool Cruiser coat, named after Mackinaw Island (one of our favorite no-auto islands), is fully lined in plaid cotton. This style dates back to 1914, and J.Crew’s version is color-blocked in forest green and charcoal wool.
