Fade of the Day – Filson Original Briefcase (18 years)

“Hand-me-downs” used to be something you didn’t want, especially as a kid. But what if your second-generation object was a perfectly-aged Filson bag? Reader Brad from Boston got this Filson Original Briefcase from his uncle who used it for at least 15 years as a traveling salesman. Since then, Brad has put three years’ worth of wear into the bag, including camping and on ski trips. Doesn’t seem to look any worse for wear, does it?
