I’m up in Michigan trying to get my fix of spring fly fishing. Now is the time of year when everyone is gearing up and buying new stuff. Usually it’s the latest, greatest technology that gets people to break out their wallets, but I’m also seeing a lot of people buying bamboo rods and other more traditional stuff. One brand that definitely falls on the traditional side is Filson. The older guys (that’s most of them) up here love it, but I’m also seeing it get popular with a younger, slightly hipsterish crowd. The Seattle, WA based company is “renowned for making products in the USA from fabrics such as heavyweight Tin Cloth and warm Mackinaw Wool.” Whether it’s workwear, hunting gear, or fishing gear, if it’s made by Filson, it’s going to last.
Filson has been around since 1897, and since then they’ve stood “for the highest quality and most durable apparel and accessories available.” Today that puts them in the pricey category, but just looking at their products tells you that it’s worth the money. Lately there seems to be a big resurgence in interest for well established American brands with a history linked to outdoor sports and traditions. That makes it an exciting time to be at Filson, which is why you should take a look at Filson’s Careers page. Right now they’re looking for a Junior Copywriter and an Executive Assistant. There are also a few retail positions available.
