Take off your coat, and stay awhile…

Filson | Leather & Canvas

Alongside the revival of  interest in things made to last, is the revival of craftsmanship techniques that have stood the test of time. At  Filson, those techniques are alive and well. Using traditional saddlebag techniques and rugged twill, Filson’s luggage and messenger style bags have the weight and reinforced stitching to last a lifetime. The aesthetics and design of their messenger style bags is a happy medium between the stylistically-beleaguered backpack and the all too formal leather briefcase.

My only observation? You are more likely to wear off  on it, than it wear off on you. Proof of this statement? – A pleasant union of the hues of brown and blue on the bottom side of the bag from my deep blue denim jeans. But hell, I guess the patina is growing on me.
