Leading outdoor enthusiasts Filson are well known for creating quality apparel which is comfortable and durable, whilst at the same time being able to with stand the toughest conditions. This is why it is a firm favourite amongst hunters, fishermen, engineers, explorers and anyone with a passion for the outdoors. With the Heritage trend and the Town in Country look being influential within menswear for the autumn/winter 2011 season, Filson are a brand who deserve your attention.
Their new outerwear collection – Black Label – adopts both function and style by keeping the designs simple yet understated. The key piece in the collection for us has to be the Fisherman Parka. The outer has been kept very simple with clean lines, drawing all the attention to the fleece lining.
The lining is made up of a bold Navajo pattern. This is a pattern trend which has been all over the catwalks and high street; from footwear to knitwear, as well as branching out onto accessories in spring/summer 2011. This tribal inspired print now looks set to continue right through into autumn/winter, taking on the main stays such as Fair Isle and Nordic.
This fisherman jacket comes in three colour ways: navy, dark green and (our favourite) camel. In addition to the statement Navajo lining, this waxed cotton fisherman parka also features a fixed adjustable peaked hood, brass coated toggles, heavyweight zip placket with pop stud cover, adjustable waist with indoor drawstring cord, as well as numerous pockets and compartments. This utilitarian feel will lend itself well to other major trends such as military and outdoors inspired styles.
So, not only will this jacket keep you warm this coming winter but it will become a key component for you to hit the Heritage and Fisherman trends we have been seeing. The statement Navajo lining is perfect for showing attention to detail, whilst it cannot fail to draw glances of envy or admiration. And all this while being completely practical as well! Who said style and function couldn’t go hand-in-hand?
