The Workshop Chore Jacket
Filson Made a Limited-Edition Chore Coat Worth the Cash
Founded in 1897, Seattle-based Filson made a name for itself outfitting some of the hardest workers in the West. It provided durable, rugged clothing and goods for loggers, miners, guides and all types of outdoorsmen. And while the brand’s staple garments are essentially codified, it continues to release some new pieces worth the cash.
Case in point, the Workshop Chore Jacket. This classic style is cut from 11.5-ounce dry-finish Tin Cloth fabric, a water-repellent, virtually-windproof material that provides protection from abrasion and tears. The jacket is unlined for minimal bulk and utilizes triple-stitched flat-felled seams for strength. Like traditional chore coats, it has four front pockets — a chest utility pocket, a chest flap pocket and two lower patch pockets — a button front and standard collar.
The jacket retails for $295 and each piece has a leather label stamped with the production number (out of 125 pieces). And like all of Filson’s products, the Workshop Chore Jacket is backed with a lifetime guarantee.
