Filson - 876 Broadway, New York

I recently attended the launch of the Filson New York Flagship Store and I must say, they have quite the space. It was a packed house as they offered free raw oysters, drinks, a rewaxing demo, and a build your own debossed leather keychain station. I also got to compare my Otter Green Logger Mesh Hat next to a brand new one. Maybe I’ll try my hand at rewaxing and bring some life back to it.

Among the usual gear you’d expect to see, they had a few items for sale from their Restoration Department. These are products that most likely have been sent in for repair or replacement and the customer opted for a replacement. I saw one jacket in particular that had some great “before” photos included in a small envelope on the tag. Very nice touch. And the jacket looked fantastic as well.

Nicely done Filson. I’m sure I’ll be back.
