It seems that women can throw away their Carhartt overalls and get some serious style in their rugged wear. Filson just announced 40 new pieces that combine “functional” fabric with a fit designed specifically for women. An example is their new Feather Cloth Fly Fishing Long Sleeve Shirt (pictured right).
Seattle Times business reporter Amy Martinez writes about the new collection in today’s paper: “The Shelter Cloth Logger jacket for $160 is like most things Filson — durable and tough enough to withstand just about anything Mother Nature throws at it. Same for Filson’s new $170 water-repellant Travel vest and $165 Canvas windbreaker. But they all differ in one way: They’re built for a woman’s fit.”
