Right on time for Thanksgiving shopping, outerwear favorite Filson inaugurated a new flagship store in Seattle's SoDo district.
Based on the West Coast since its inception in 1897, the brand worked on refurbishing a much larger space, just a few blocks away from its original factory and store, to carry the largest selections of Filson goods in the country.
The new flagship reflects the adventurous spirit of the Yukon, showcasing hand-picked objects and artifacts, including an 18-foot tall totem by wood artist Aleph Geddis, an up-cycled lumber trellis, and Douglas fir wood fitting rooms, all collected and commissioned by Alex Carleton, Filson's creative director.

The store will also feature products exclusive to Seattle, so before the weather completely shifts to a crisp winter white, make sure you pay the new store a visit, and perhaps pick up one of their must-have menswear pieces (we love the wool macs, waxed moto jackets, and the elegant weekender bags --pictured, above), all handcrafted in Filson's in-house factory.
For old-time Filson fans, the Filson bag clinic, where customers can bring their worn-out accessories for repair, is also moving to the upper floor of the new space.
