Filson Tin Jacket

I’ve been eyeing this Filson Tin Jacket for some time and much to my surprise I just so happened to receive it yesterday for Christmas. Opening the package and seeing the oil cotton and filson tag made my heartbeat skip. Filson has known how to make a garment since 1897 with every detail beautifully stitched and buttoned. The best part about it is the over sized arms and back, but built to size in length so you can wear it over your largest coat, sweater, or flannel and have full range of movement. The only thing that was a bit disappointing is the picture offers a view of it including the inner liner, but it doesn’t. Beyond that, a great addition to the closet. It’s a no frills piece of oiled cotton that will carry you through the next world war.

    Why were you chagrined if you had been eyeing it? It is a great looking jacket though.

    Hung over blogging doesn’t always result in the best writing. Haha, thank you for the heads up…surprise is the word meant. I was chargrined that it wasn’t lined like previously thought. However, I forgot to add that.
