Filson 1897 Collection
The Filson 1897 Collection limited-edition line features heritage styles from Filson’s 115-year history. Every season debuts a design of individually-numbered pieces, recreated from archived patterns. The Forestry Cloth Cruiser was formally introduced as style No.16, the Filson Forestry Cloth Cruising Coat in the early 1920s. By 1972, the Forestry Cloth Cruiser, along with its matching pant, was known as “The Outdoorsman’s Tuxedo” due to its dressy appearance under rigorous conditions. For this reason, it has also been affectionately called “The Alaskan Tuxedo”.
