HOW IT’S DONE
The Cruiser jacket is cut from 24-ounce (680 g) Mackinaw wool, the ideal fabric weight for warmth and weather protection. The Filson label, pockets, and pocket flaps are sewn on to the body of the garment. Next, the sleeves, front, and back pieces are attached. The collar, cuffs, hem, buttons, and buttonholes are stitched on – most parts are affixed with double-needle stitching, which optimises fabric’s flexibility and durability. Snaps are set, then it’s pressed and inspected.
