By now you know that we’re big fans around here of J. Crew and Bonobos and even, at times Mr. Porter. But our latest obsession is all things Filson. We’re not sure why we were by not incorporating their clothes into our daily rotation but, alas, here we are. Better late than never. If you haven’t heard of them before or haven’t shopped them in a while, now’s a great time to give them a chance. You’re about to totally upgrade your style!
Now we’ve known about Filson for a while now – but that was in regards, specifically, with their sporty briefcases and laptop bags. We’ve had their laptop bag for a while now (we got it at Nordstrom) and because we loved it so much, we’ve added it to a bunch of our own gift guides year after year.
But, if we’re being truthful, we never shopped them direct and had no clue they had some really amazing clothing options and accessories for both men and women. But now that we’ve discovered the magic, well, we’re hooked. We totally mesh with their vibe of “American Heritage.” For us, that means outdoorsy, rugged, stylish – and age appropriate. We’re not age-shammers, but it’s refreshing to see clothes that people our own age would wear. We made the mistake of always trying to follow a trend and, at our age, we look like goons. There, we said it!
Now, thanks to all things pandemic and this world we all live in these days, there’s now going into the office for us. WFH has been a blessing and we’re loving wearing comfy clothes all day long. But, with Zoom calls we have to at least look like we’re not in our PJs. So some of our fave Filson items include things like their super comfy tees, hoodies, and joggers. Of course, they have really kick-ass button-down shirts, jeans, and regular work-appropriate pants and we can’t wait to start dressing normal again. Well, sort of.
So, if you’re looking for something a bit different and are tired of shopping at the same-old-same-old places, we def recommend to give Filson a shot. There’s really something for everyone, at almost every style, and price point. We’re psyched we rediscovered them and think you will be too!
The Deal With the Deals:
Ok, so this one is a bit of a letdown. There actually aren’t a lot of sales and deals with this brand. And, well, it’s a bit on the pricer side. There are times of the year, however, where they’ll have an official sales event like this past Black Friday. Then you could get up to $100 off with a minimum spend requirement.
While it’s not a common occurrence, when there is a sale they’ll list it all out in this section of their site.
In the past they’d break down their sale by: men, women, luggage + bags, accessories, and home + camp. So basically when there is a sale, jump on it!
To Gift or Not to Gift:
We, of course, recommend checking them out especially if you’re looking for some really unique gift ideas that they’ll probably not already have, which is refreshing! We put together a brief gift guide on some unique presents for even the pickiest of people on your shopping list.
- For Him – Go with their original twill briefcase – See it here
- For Your Dad – Go with one of their popular wallets – See it here
- For Your Brother – Go with any of these hats – See it here
- The Travel Gift – Go with any of their rolling luggage – See it here
- Last Minute/Same Day – Go with their eGift card – See it here
The Deal With Promo Codes:
We get this a lot. Like, too much. Similar to the above info, unfortunately, no Filson doesn’t have coupons or promo code discounts. And, to be clear, we don’t have any here either. Sure, we’re the worst. But we don’t want to waste your time, like we wasted ours by checking out all those other sites that claim to have them but, spoiler alert, none worked. Go figure.
So, we recommend to shop Filson direct because they will, once in a while, have special discount offers for their new customers or even existing customers. Recently, we’ve seen that you could save 10% by subscribing to their email list. Pretty easy and totally worth it. Again, check them out directly to see what’s active today!
