filson mackinaw cruiser (for the 10th time)
i promise i’m not trying to beat a dead horse here. i know i’ve mentioned this jacket at least twice on this blog and there’s a reason for that. it’s my all-time favorite jacket. when the weather hits the 30’s or below (like today), it’s all i wear. i went to new york last december and it’s the only coat i took with me. it was in the teens then and i wore it with just a flannel shirt. i never got cold (maybe i’m an alien). if it’s cold where you are and you need a new jacket, this is the one you want. i can’t tell you which fit you need to get, because i bought mine before filson introduced the “seattle fit” which is a slimmer fit than their traditional “alaska fit.” (note to filson: maybe just call it slim and regular. it’s confusing. are people in alaska bigger than people in seattle? i dunno.) i bought mine true to size (38) in the old-school regular fit and it’s perfect. you can buy your very own right here at filson.com.
