Tin Cloth

SStyleimprimatur_Filson_Tin_Cloth_Backpack_Runway_Product_Outfit_Fashion_Shopping_BlogIt’s funny what catches your eye, I was sitting on a tiny plane a couple of weeks ago enroute from Florence to London when I saw a hip young couple stowing their overhead luggage. As the girl swung her bag overhead I clocked it as a Filson and indeed on closer inspection (I am a total stalker when it comes to fashion finds, so I walked close behind her when we exited) it was indeed the Filson Tin Cloth Backpack (also here, here, and here) in Otter Green. There was something instantly recognisable in its simplicity of design.

I was first introduced to Filson by a friend of mine who carefully makes his fashion choices based on classics and longevity and his Filson Harvey Messenger Bag has stood the test of time, looking better in its aged state than when he first bought it.
