Throw Back Thursday: Vintage Alaskan Guide Shirt
“I have been a life long Filson man. I am a 70 year old retired commercial fisherman and a full time commercial shell fisherman, fishing 200 plus days a year. I demand the best gear I can buy. Ten years ago I purchased this cotton shirt, 1,800 day’s worth and 1,000 washes give or take a few hundred. This shirt has not lost a single button. I have been sewing buttons on my shirts for 50 years. When I cut the sleeves off this shirt I kept them for they still had their 4 buttons! I finally threw out the sleeves knowing that I would never lose a button from this shirt.”
