Filson. For you men out there, you probably know enough about them and don't need to read more. For those of you who are still boys, keep reading because this is stuff you're going to want to know. For over 100 years, Filson has been hand crafting the most ruggedly handsome apparel and accessories for the outdoors. Made specifically for some of the harshest environments, Filson creates their clothing and gear with only the finest wools, toughest cottons, and finest leathers.
Filson started up back in 1897, as a small outfitting store that worked to help equip gold miners. You know, real men. Not the kind you find in GQ Magazine, but the kind of man that pans for gold in frozen streams, or uses a pick axe to carve out an entire side of a mountain. These are the type of men Filson still makes their clothing for today. Men who drink their bourbon straight, only to chase it with more bourbon in between splitting wood in temperatures cold enough to make a polar bear cry.
Weaker men have called Filson stubborn. That may be, but they like it that way. In fact, stubbornness is the whole point of the company. Filson has always done things their way, and even since the 1800's, they haven't changed much. They don't make their products the fastest or the easiest way. Made in the USA, Filson makes their gear tough. Tough enough that it should take about a year to break in, but also tough enough to last nearly forever. That's why Filson guarantees their products for a life time.
Other companies may send production overseas. Other companies may use new technology in the fabrics of their products. Other companies may use inferior materials to make a cheaper product. Not Filson.

The Filson way.
