Blackbird found the only way to improve on Filson; they got them to make a bag in black.

Props to Blackbird in Ballard for knowing that the only thing you could to make Filson bags cooler is to make one in black.

And then another round of props to the menswear pioneers for actually getting the iconic Seattle-based brand to do it.

For sale now at the shop and on blackbirdballard.com: the Filson Medium Field Bag in Blackbird Black. Don’t sleep on it, though. Only 66 of these things were produced, (as in historic Route 66) and each comes with a harmonica, a copy of the sheet music for Woody Guthrie’s "This Land Is Your Land," and a railroad striped bandana.

Authentic Americana, by way of Seattle, for $265.
