Archival News: Filson Seconds Sale 2009
Although the Filson Cruising shirts and coats from 1921 have sold out, you can still shop for good quality Filson items at the 2009 Seconds Sale.
Here's what I know:
The public sale is open from 9:00 AM - 3:00PM Sunday October 25th. The sale will be held at Filson's 3851 1st Ave S Seattle WA, 98134 address.
I've heard from Seconds Sale veterans that the event requires an early a.m. arrival and full combat readiness. Since I'll be in Chicago on that day, I'll be shopping for my own future Filson seconds via ebay where most of the items eventually migrate (look for the black slash across your garment tag).
If you do go, post photos and reports (I've yet to see a live action view of this event).
Good sport and good luck!
In the end, I think I prefer refab Filson to factory seconds.
