Archival News: Filson flagship store opening in Portland, Oregon





When it comes to Filson merchants, I'm a total Portland Outdoor Store loyalist. But on November 15, I'm going to swap allegiances in the hopes of claiming a Filson-themed door prize at the flagship store opening in Portland, Oregon. Proposal to CC Filson: in an adjacent space, open up a Filson museum featuring all the items that have been discontinued (and sometimes re-introduced) over the years. I could contribute the following: a four pocket wool whipcord cruiser coat, a pair of wool whipcord climbing breeches and a basic model shelter cloth chore coat with contrasting tin cloth arm patches. Any other submissions?
