STP Salvage (12/4/09)

by Lesli Larson

Here are some recent Filson items on offer through Sierra Trading Post (my source for archival imagery of discontinued Barbour, Filson, John Partridge, Gloverall and Beretta). This month, several styles of waxed cotton shelter cloth jackets are on the chopping block.

If I were the right size, I'd buy the cotton poplin breeze jacket or waxed cotton bomber.

From this selection, I'm sorry to see Filson discontinue their original line of merino socks. The newer models are perfectly functional but incorporate a techno-knit grid pattern that's visible above the shoe line (if you wear loafers or oxfords).

Since I'm providing these images for visual reference in ten years, I offer no guarantees on sizing or product availability.

I loved those fuzzy merino wool socks, sad to see Filson discontinue them.

Thanks for the heads-up on the socks, i ordered six pair. Probably set for a while now, as I also bought three pair of Filson boots before the change over, and at 50% off! Check out the Swanndri hunting cap and sweaters on Sierra Trading as well, nice design, made in China however. For a good winter hat made in the states, you'd be hard-pressed to beat Stormy Kromer. Just bought two, very well-made, looking to purchase two more. I ordered a size up, though others will tell you the sizing is spot on..
