Filson: Might As Well Have the Best

Amé Amé is proud to say that we have, in stock, the legendary Filson brand. We now carry a selection of Filson bags, including the Small Field Bag and the Classic Briefcase. These bags are beautiful examples of craftsmanship that only improve with age. Ten years from now when you still have your Filson bag, not only will it be as strong as ever, but it will look experienced and wisened as if it could tell its own thrilling life story of frontiersmanship and adventure. Filson products were tough enough to withstand the harsh conditions of The Klondike during its gold rush, and the man headed north often put his very life in the hands of Filson; these bags will have no trouble withstanding the modern hustle and bustle of urban life. What could I say, though, that Mr. C.C. Filson could not say better…

“TO OUR CUSTOMERS: if a man is going North, he should come to us for his outfit, because we have obtained our ideas of what is best to wear in that country from the experience of the man from the North — not merely one — but hundreds of them. Our materials are the very best obtainable, for we know that the best is none too good and that quality is of vital importance. YOU CAN DEPEND ABSOLUTELY UPON OUR GOODS BOTH AS TO MATERIAL AND WORKMANSHIP.”
— C.C. Filson, 1914 Catalog
