Combining two of America’s best and oldest names in classic rugged clothing, Levi’s (1853) and C.C. Filson (1897) have teamed up to produce a small line of very cool new products based on their respective heritages. Many are classic Filson patterns done up in Levi’s denim, but some are just the opposite. The real standout is the classic Levi’s trucker jacket ($188, pictured left) made in Filson’s tin cloth waterproof waxed cotton. All the pieces are made at Filson’s factory in Seattle and should outlast you, unlike the stock, which sells out quickly. Check them out at both Levi’s and Filson’s web sites.
