The reissued Filson Aberdeen jacket is rugged workwear royalty
Whether describing the recent concern double knee pants or the longtime Carhartt craze, workwear has become a buzzword in the fashion sphere lately. While some gear is up to the challenge, it seems like every label wants in on the action, most to varying degrees. Work clothes must be resistant, they must fit well and they must be a little dirty; most brands these days just aren’t up to the challenge.
And then there is Filson. The Seattle-based heritage brand has been providing outdoor enthusiasts with tough, durable gear that’s built to last and backed by a lifetime warranty for over 120 years. You won’t find any gimmicks or fake ads here, just a durable and reliable source of gear for anglers, farmhands and muscle guys everywhere.
This totally explains our unbridled enthusiasm for the reissue of the Aberdeen work jacket, an archive staple of Filson’s summer range that is finally back in stock. Made from the lightest 100% waxed cotton blanket fabric Filson has to offer – an incredibly breezy eight ounces – the style still offers fully waterproof protection, with rib-knit cuffs and a drawcord-adjustable hem to block out gusts and gales. Moleskin-lined snap cargo pockets provide easy storage for gear and goodies, and the burnished “Dark Tab” hue is perfect for the summer months. All in all, this is the jacket for the job if you plan to get your hands dirty…or just want to look like you.
The Aberdeen work jacket is available now at Filson’s online store for $325 – a hefty price tag, we know, but will you really care when you pass this thing on to your grandkids? Don’t miss your chance to grab this holy grail of lightweight workwear before it’s gone again.
