Style Pick of the Week: Filson Tin Cloth Jacket

Filson Tin Cloth Work Jacket

A new go-to work and casual jacket with all the proper style points you need.

Well, my friends: If your New Year’s style resolutions included a commitment to buying less but buying better, and a commitment to focusing on heritage-quality gear including the best men’s winter jackets, you’re in luck. The Filson Tin Cloth Jacket is a perfectly rugged, tough-as-nails and winter-ready jacket to help you kick off 2021 in style, and that’s just a fact. We’re big fans of Filson here on the blog, makers of pieces like the Filson Mackinaw Wool Cruiser Jacket and of course, some of the best men’s gear around. That’s where the Filson Tin Cloth Jacket comes into play, because it’s been around the Filson line for years and years (with the rugged construction and great looks to prove it). The Filson Tin Cloth Jacket gets it right from the get-go as far as taking on tough weather: It’s made from the Seattle brand’s rain-repellent, abrasion-resistant Tin Cloth fabric, the kind that’s been helping adventurers, explorers and commuters face the elements for more than a century. If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for you. This jacket is made to hit below the hip for more coverage on the go, and it helps that the back is cut so you can move around with ease.

Filson Tin Cloth Jacket

An utterly dependable, classic and tough jacket you can mix up with some classic Filson accessories.

This rough-and-tumble jacket really has the capabilities of multiple jackets, especially when you consider that you can team it with Filson liners for extra warmth in chilly winter weather. Because the Filson Tin Cloth Jacket retails for nearly $300, you’re going to want to get as much wear out of it as possible. By that, I mean you should wear it with everything from a denim shirt, faded black jeans and a rugged Filson henley (off-duty) to a thermal shirt and some Filson Dry Tin Pants the next time a grueling outdoor project calls. If you order yours alongside a Filson wool liner, you’ve got a virtually unstoppable outdoor jacket with plenty of room to layer. Sounds more than ideal for tough conditions out there, does it not? Snap front buttons are made with classic Filson hardware for rugged performance, while a front chest pocket offers some space for critical EDC essentials. When it gets really chilly out there, flip up the virgin wool collar for even more protection in the great outdoors. When it comes to the Filson Tin Cloth Jacket, don’t delay picking it up as you start off 2021 in classic, heritage-ready style.

Probably not, and yet here we are, so rest assured that today’s post gets right down to business, and it’s anything but spooky (Happy Halloween!).

See Now, Buy Now: Filson’s Dry Tin Pants are the Best Outdoor Pants for Fall

Filson pants

Tough-as-can-be work pants from Filson – they’re the best pants for fall.

I’ll come right out and say it: The Filson Dry Tin Pants are assuredly the rugged men’s pants you need this fall, especially if your season entails everything from early morning yard work to day hikes to brewery visits (wear a mask!) and beyond. Whether you want to think of them as the best work pants for men, or as just a darn fine pair of pants for a casual fall weekend, they won’t do you wrong. Similar in nature to, say, the Taylor Stitch Chore Pants, these rugged Filson pants are a stone-cold classic from a brand that knows how to make the best workwear for men, including some of the best men’s work pants and jackets. It all starts, as you might expect, with the fabrication and construction. In the case of the best outdoor pants for fall, the secret weapon is abrasion-resistant cotton Tin Cloth fabric. This durable fabric just so happens to be ready to take on the toughest projects and gnarly conditions aplenty this fall, and the five-pocket design offers plenty of space for your everyday carry.

The Filson Dry Tin 5-Pocket Pants aren’t just your average pair of work pants, though. They’ve got reinforcement at key stress points, including at the rivets, plus a double-layer rear hem to stand up to tough conditions on the ground. And yet, these aren’t an overly baggy pair of work pants. The cut on these Filson pants should be a straight fit, one that’s easy to move around in on the job and yet looks put together when you head to a distillery or brewery (Filson boots afoot, of course) for post-session pint. How’s that for versatility when it comes to the best outdoor pants for fall — and beyond? If I were you, I’d team my Filson Dry Tin 5-Pocket Pants with none other than a rugged Filson henley, a waxed jacket, and yes, Filson boots. Now, get out there and get to work.

Style Pick of the Week: Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt

Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt

Whether you’re a skilled banjo player, an explorer or have a tendency toward days at home, this is one of the best shirt jackets for men you can buy.

When you know, you know — when you step outside on a crisp, cool fall morning, you know what lies in store: Fall adventures and of course, the need for rugged fall gear to take on the day. That, my friends, is where the Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt comes into play, one of the best shirt jackets for men this fall (and of course, well beyond). This timeless men’s shirt jacket is tough-as-nails, easy to layer, built for inclement fall weather, and made to last and last — and last. That sounds pretty ideal for the season, right?

The Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt is built every bit as well as you’d expect coming from Filson, made for Pacific Northwest mornings (or days at home, upstate or in the Midwest).

When the going gets tough, you should assuredly turn toward one of the best shirt jackets for men, seeing as this particular number is made with a tough, 4oz. cotton exterior finished off with a water-resistant waxed treatment. It delivers the goods when you need it, to say the least.

SHOP: The Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt


A reliable, dependable and rugged shirt jacket for fall and winter.

One of the best men’s shirt jackets needs to step up in the clutch, and it helps if it looks darn good while doing it. The Marsh Olive color is a workhorse when it comes to pairing up with grey chore pants and tough leather work boots, yet it also looks mighty fine when worn casually (think slim indigo jeans, a thermal henley and chukka boots to grab to-go brewery beers). Consider the Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt a grab-and-go-type of jacket, one you need to wear when on the trail or camping under the stars (or again, hanging out around your bonfire). And because it’s Filson, all the details are accounted for — the snap front buttons are easy to use even while wearing, say, Filson work gloves. Although the Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt is a bit pricier than your average work shirt, it’s absolutely worth it — it’s a new everyday style staple. If you end up picking it up, let me know on Twitter.

See Now, Buy Now: The Filson Service Boots are the Most Rugged Fall Boots Around

Filson Service Boots

Potentially some of the best boots for fall — heck, the best men’s boots, period — that you can buy right now.

We’re about halfway through September right now — and ever closer to the first day of fall, so it’s high time you continued shopping for (and buying) a pair of the best men’s boots. Where else to go but Filson, assuredly one of the best places to get gear for men? From the Filson Summer Sale on into fall and winter with pieces like the best flannel shirt, they don’t stop — and the Filson Service Boots are as fitting an example of that as any, offering the kind of rugged durability you should certainly demand from your new favorite pair of boots.  On that note, it’s the kind of craftsmanship you’re investing in that really makes the difference (similar to Filson hand-tooled leather goods, ya dig?). But back to these boots.

The great thing is, the Filson Service Boots carry on the sort of rugged, durable-yet-stylish legacy you’d expect from the lauded Pacific Northwest heritage retailer. They make gear that’s made to go off-road and into the field as readily as it can be worn on a winery or brewery tour. And my friends, you can count on the Filson Service Boots to go all of those places and plenty more this fall. The phrase “They don’t make ’em like they used to,” well, it actually doesn’t apply here — that’s because Filson has assuredly succeeded when it comes to these rugged leather boots.

SHOP: The Filson Service Boots

Filson boots

Rugged leather boots made with top-notch construction.

These plain-toe boots draw inspiration from vintage, military standard issue leather boots, featuring oiled, roughout leather construction. That provides durability and toughness when pairing your Filson boots with, say, Filson chore pants in the elements, yet the versatile profile also means these are a pair of boots you can wear with jeans, easily. The Goodyear storm-welted sole also provides additional protection from rain and debris (there’s no way for water to enter the sole), while rust-resitant hardware, triple stitching at stress points, and a Vibram outsole add maximum performance and toughness. These are some of the most durable leather boots to buy for fall, and really … would you expect anything less from Filson? I certainly wouldn’t.

Made with a relatively lightweight 4oz. cotton twill, consider it an all-season shirt that just so happens to wear nicely on its own or atop a classic pocket tee or a tough henley — feel fee to start out fall wearing either stylish combination.

SHOP: The Filson Scout Shirt

One of several fall-ready patterns in which you’re going to want this classic Filson shirt.

This rugged men’s shirt also nails it on the functionality front. The fabric is yarn-dyed to prevent fading, meaning you can wear it over and over for yard work, day trips, hiking excursions or casual to-go brewery visits without missing a beat. Two front-button chest pockets (surprisingly roomy on most Filson shirts, from my experience) offer space for your everyday carry essentials, while pleated shoulders add excellent range of motion and versatility for plenty of wearing occasions.

The excellent Filson Scout Shirt is also available in some stylish and fall-ready patterns, each of which would wear handsomely with everything from durable chore pants to your favorite pair of jeans and rugged leather boots. And again, you can’t go wrong with a shirt that’s able to be layered up atop a henley, worn all on its own or teamed with a tough Filson waxed jacket. For early fall days when anything can happen weather-wise, that sort of reliability is crucial. Filson really has stepped up to the plate and delivered a classic men’s shirt that you should be proud to wear now, and into the rest of fall … and long beyond that.
