I had the pleasure of receiving an invite to Filson’s Spring 2017 preview and it was quite an experience. This was my first opportunity to see a private preview of a line before it was released. Most of the Seattle Gents also received an invite and it was great to see such a turn out!
Filson was kind enough to share some drinks and light appetizers with us (which were delicious) before diving into the Spring line. I was very impressed with not only the aesthetics of their clothing, but also the unbelievable quality. We were allowed to hold, feel, and try on most of the clothes they showed to us. The materials were strong and would certainly protect you from the elements, as well as give off a pleasant look. One of my favorite aspects of the clothing was how tough it was. You can tell that whatever you buy from them will last you a lifetime. I was also excited to see so many pieces that were versatile. They are really trying to give the customer options; whether that is a look for out in the woods or a more city-based appearance.
Filson also offers a wide range of watches, knives, belts, bags and backpacks, and so much more. I was so impressed with their store located in the HQ in Seattle. I loved the layout and the interior design was certainly on point. It had a classy feel while also staying true to the outdoorsy and elemental aspects of the brand.
I highly recommend that you check out the Filson HQ store or check out the brand online. They have been around since 1897…more than 100 years!! So if you don’t believe me, their reputation speaks for itself. I know I can’t wait to get my hands on some of their stuff!
