· Filed In: Mackinaw Memories

My wife recently suggested that I “trade” in my Filson wool coat and receive $60 off a new one. Why would she suggest such a thing?

I saw your recent promotion to give $60 trade in my Mackinaw Wool Cruiser. Based on my experience I doubt you will get many takers. My red/black double Mackinaw is about 20 years old and still looks like it just came out of the box. Since I have gained 20lbs in 20 years I can’t bundle up as much underneath…

I am not going to tell you a story. I am going to tell you the truth, I love that Mackinaw Cruiser. I grew up in the 60s and it seemed that everybody owned one of those plaid beauties. I think I just had a Norman Rockwell moment. When you see that coat you can’t help but to think of…
