U.S. sewn denim jeans available on Filson.com
SEATTLE, Wash. (Nov. 23, 2020) – Filson, the rugged outdoor outfitter, announced today a new line of denim jeans, the latest chapter in a legacy that spans over a century of outfitting customers for the most demanding conditions. Sewn in the U.S. using American and Italian materials, Filson Denim brings the brand’s trusted legacy of workmanship to an everyday staple.
Filson has built a reputation for reliability by creating durable gear that can withstand the most demanding conditions. Since 1897, Filson’s signature materials like Tin Cloth and Mackinaw Wool have been providing customers unfailing protection and Filson Denim is no exception.
“Denim is a timeless and everyday fabric, and there is a sense of arrival with bringing this line into Filson, alongside materials like our Tin Cloth and Mackinaw Wool that consumers have come to know and love,” said Alex Carleton, Filson Chief Creative Officer. “As an outfitter made for and built by those in the field, we look forward to offering denim for years to come.”
Each of the new denim styles is built for work and everyday wear. The Rail-Splitter Jeans, available in both raw and rinsed finishes, features 5-pocket construction, double-lined rear pockets, a straight-leg cut and zipper-fly. The limited-edition Rail-Splitter Selvedge Jeans are constructed from Japanese selvedge denim on vintage shuttle looms giving it a tight, durable weave for added sturdiness. Sewn in the U.S., the durable Bullbuck Double-Front Jeans are reinforced with double-layer leg-fronts and double-layer rear pockets.
