The point is, technology has marched on since Filson was founded in 1897. Wool and waxed cotton are no longer cutting edge. We've got stuff today our fathers and grandfathers would have killed to wear. The folks at Filson know this. They also know that the people who buy their clothes stay loyal to the brand because of its Gold Rush heritage and traditional materials. So Filson is taking a chance this year by introducing the waterproof Wingshooting Jacket and Pant, made of three-layer nylon twill with sealed seams. This is not your father's waxed cotton Tin Cloth, that's for sure. And unlike the waxed cotton and wool clothing which is still sewn in Seattle, it's made offshore. Like all Filson stuff, it is very well-made, judging by the samples I saw at SHOT, and, again like all Filson stuff, it's not cheap: the jacket sells for $295; the pants for $175.
