The Thursday Buy: Save 30 Percent On the Iconic Filson Vintage Flannel Work Shirt for Winter

Regardless of how much time you spend off the grid (or wielding an axe!) in the great outdoors, there’s no denying the utility and classically rugged appeal of one of the best men’s flannel shirts, right? Perhaps you share something in common with your favorite Brooklyn style writer (me!) — I simply, seemingly can’t have too many of the best flannel shirts for men in my winter style rotation, and that includes the newly discounted Filson Vintage Flannel Work Shirt.

It’s up for grabs right now at a mighty fine discount (30 percent, to be exact), the sort of deal that only seems to crop up when the Filson Winter Sale rolls through town. That sale only runs through January 17th, so you ‘d do well to pick up an expertly crafted, timeless shirt made for the great outdoors (or the great “indoors” these days, as it were).

The Filson Vintage Flannel Work Shirt performs and wears like it’s been in the Filson line for decades, what with its soft and durable cotton twill construction, and things only get better from there.

The Filson Vintage Flannel Work Shirt is made from a hard-wearing yet soft-to-the-touch 8.5oz. cotton twill that’s been brushed for (as Filson says), “softness and thermal retention.” It’s the sort of tough yet comfortable shirt you can throw on as an overshirt through casual cabin weekends or days in front of the fire at home, yet the Filson Vintage Flannel Work Shirt should also work reliably as a mid-layer atop a Filson thermal shirt and beneath one of Filson’s legendary jackets.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the Filson Vintage Flannel Work Shirt boasts double-needle stitching at key stress points, not to mention military-grade melamine buttons. Better still is the fact that the Filson Vintage Flannel Work Shirt also features two front-button chest pockets, all the more useful when it comes time to store your EDC essentials.

And for good measure, your new favorite flannel shirt comes in seven timeless colors and patterns — and as a reminder, the Filson Winter Sale means it’s 30 percent off right now until January 17th. A stellar deal on a future heirloom shirt? Sounds mighty tough to pass up today, my friends.


#OOTD: Here’s How to Wear the Most Rugged Gear for Winter

Rugged, durable gear is all the rage these days, and for good reason as we move through a chilly February. In fact, your next #OOTD calls for versatile, warm winter layering and expertly crafted style for cold weather, after all. I’ve got good news: You’re in luck, because it all starts convincingly with one of the most rugged coats for men from Filson, a legendary addition to your outerwear rotation that you’ll want to wear a ton the rest of this season (these are also gear picks you can wear as Valentine’s Day menswear options later this month). The rest of these picks are pieces you’re going to come to know and love, if you don’t already have a closet packed full of ’em. Case in point: The Buck Mason work shirt that serves as a go-between layer, plus the durable henley from Huckberry that’s acting as a warming base layer through the winter chill. Naturally, a classic leather watch from Timex is also along for the ride, as is one of the coolest bags for men (it’s a surprise!).

To me, these picks work in perfect harmony together, especially when so many of our favorite pursuits, from grabbing a local beer to enjoying an apertif, have moved outside under heat lamps. For a day hike, for a crosstown stroll or heck, for a day of yard work, I think you can make any of these pieces work quite nicely (it’s a blend of form and function after all, right?). Of course, your rugged five-pocket pants are as ready for adventure and yard work as anything, so they’re along for the ride, too. Keep scrolling to see how it all comes together, and happy shopping this season, folks.

Undeniably tough, rugged picks to get you through winter in style, no doubt.

  • The Rugged Jacket: Filson Cover Cloth Mile Marker Coat, $395 — The right winter gear often starts with one of the best men’s jackets for winter, and Filson has you covered quite easily.
  • The Shirt: Buck Mason Chambray Work Shirt, $105 — It doesn’t get any better for rugged winter layering than a Buck Mason work shirt, right? Yes indeed.
  • The Henley: Flint and Tinder Raglan Waffle Henley, $62 — A durable, tough henley is the right base layer to combat cold weather while providing some cool, casual visual interest in this ensemble.
  • The Pants: Proof Rover Pants, $98 — These are some of the best-selling pants at Huckberry for a reason; reason being, they mimic the fabric and toughness of work pants, yet they’ve got the comfort and style of your favorite denim.
  • The Boots: Wolverine 1000 Mile Axel Boots, $400 — It’s not too late to get your new favorite winter boots, and this updated take on the Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots should prove a perfect pairing with the rest of this ensemble.
  • The Watch: Timex Navi XL Automatic Leather Watch, $259 — To pair with your tough leather boots, pick up a classic Timex leather watch for unstoppably cool, rugged style.
  • The Winter Hat: Away Without Leave Fisherman Beanie, $45 — Bundle up in style with this old-school fisherman beanie, a recent addition to the Huckberry gear lineup.
  • The Everyday Carry: DISCOMMON Weekender, $875 — If you’re hitting the road or if you’ve got plenty of gear to haul on the daily, then you want the incredibly well-made DISCOMMON Weekender, one of the coolest bags for men I’ve seen in some time.

Alright, let’s review precisely what we’ve got on tap in today’s rugged, rough-and-ready #OOTD. To me, it’s packed with the sort of essential gear picks you really can’t go without, especially when blustery, snowy winter weather is the norm. Take the Filson Cover Cloth Mile Marker Coat, as tough a jacket as it gets when the going gets, well, tough. It’s a fine pairing with your Buck Mason work shirt, another crucial layer to fight winter’s cold climes. Naturally, both work quite  well atop your Flint and Tinder henley for maximum warmth and timeless good looks.

And if it’s work-ready versatility — plus serious style points — that you’re looking for in terms of your bottom half, you could do worse than some of the best-selling pants at Huckberry (available in both Slim and Straight fits). It gets even better, though: A new take on the Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots are going to ensure you stay on your feet and take on tough jobs (or just another round of winter beers) with ease. Since the name of the game is all-day function and fashion, a classic Timex leather watch is a crucial accessory to add to your daily carry. Top it all off, quite literally, with a fisherman beanie that’ll keep you warm all day and night long. Last but certainly not least, I’m certain you’ll find the DISCOMMON Weekender quite useful and quite stylish no matter where you go, particularly if a winter road trip is in order.
