Filson has everything I am looking for in an American brand: heritage, US made quality, innovative products, timeless design, and a great story. Their wide assortment of vintage paraphernalia in their Portland store sheds light on the inspiration behind one of the most important brands in the Resurgence Movement (the recent popularity of American heritage brands). After my visit to their store and multiple perusals on their website, one thing is clear: Filson perfectly captures their heritage appeal and defines their story. If only their fits were a little better...
This is my favorite muse piece. Note the Field and Stream from 1925 (I think)
