Discover what makes Filson a unique heritage brand
Filson was Established by Clinton C. Filson in 1897 on the back of the great Klondike Gold Rush. Clinton set out to provide fortune hunters and explorers with outdoor clothing and bags built to last in the harshest of conditions. Using his strong work ethic, a reputation for honesty and the experience that he had gained from operating a small loggers outfitting store, Clinton began to build his brand.
Today Filson as a brand is known for its high quality outdoor designs. Filson has worked hard over the last 119 years by following Clinton C. Filson’s strong work ethic to generate a global reputation for never ceasing to deliver stylistic garments and luggage with over a century of proven durability.
Filson is constantly looking for ways in which to incorporate its classic outdoor craftsmanship with some of the more contemporary needs of its modern customers. In 2014 Filson collaborated with renowned photo agency Magnum Photos as well as drawing upon the knowledge of two national geographic photographers; Steve McCurry and David Alan Harvey in order to redevelop its messenger bags and totes to withstand the harsh environments that outdoor photographers find themselves in. The end result was a collection of effortlessly stylish photograph bags for those who refuse to stay indoors.
Stylish luggage that lasts
The wide variety of bags and pouches that Filson provides are made from some of the strongest materials available on the market. Filson travel bags use English Bridle leather, a leather that is treated with greases and wax in order to fortify its strength as well as to give it a gorgeous depth of colour that increases in attractiveness with use. Furthermore, Filson uses solid rustproof brass zippers that are custom cut at Filson with added storm flap closure to ensure minimal water intrusion and to ultimately increase the longevity of the product.
Filson is a brand here to prove that the heritage menswear movement is not losing steam, but rather progressing with the cultural tides of fashion. Filson delivers beautifully crafted high quality luggage that can withstand more than the everyday wear and tear of day to day life. Filson delivers a clean yet rugged looking professional luggage and clothing line that is perfect for both those who embrace the outdoors and for the menswear aficionados that merely appreciate the craftsmanship.
