Filson-Forestry Cloth Cruiser No 16
Availability:In Stock




Last seen in Filson's catalog some 30 years ago, the Forestry Cloth Cruiser is back for a limited time only, in a numbered edition of 1,897. It was originally called the "Alaskan Tuxedo" because of its dressy appearance under all rigorous Alaska conditions. Filson's 1914 catalog states "Forestry Cloth is a specially prepared cloth originally made for forest rangers' suits." It's a worsted wool tightly woven with two-ply yarns both ways, using only the finest long staple fibers to create a beautifully textured serge of exceptional durability. This authentic replica coat is heirloom quality, beautiful in texture, light in weight, yet will afford protection from cold, wind and rain for years to come. Inner patch pocket. Made in USA. Dry clean.
