Founded in 1897 in Seattle, Washington by Clinton C Filton, the brand's philosophy has never changed… “Make sure it’s the absolute best”. Filson was born during the great Klondike Gold Rush when thousands of fortune hunters were stampeding into Seattle, heading north and in great need for hard wearing apparel. Using the knowledge gained from speaking directly to customers he was able to refine his designs to meet their specifications. It is no surprise that the items that worked then still work today, over 120 years later. Filson only uses the best materials obtainable, gaining a worldwide reputation as a premier outfitter, specialising in outdoor clothing and accessories. They are renowned for their rugged style, quality and durability, making them the go to brand for any outdoor enthusiast.
