In modern times, it’s less and less practical for American brands to manufacture domestically, causing some of the greatest Americana stalwarts to send their production overseas. Luckily, there are plenty of great places to do that manufacturing, many with loads of history themselves.
One of those places is Portugal, where Filson has turned to produce their new Service Boots. Known for their rough and tough hunting and outdoor wear, these boots should be consistent with the brand’s drive for hard-wearing and good-looking clothing. The boots have Goodyear storm welts, Vibram soles, and handsomely rugged oiled roughout uppers. Triple stitching at points of stress will guarantee a good, long life, and extra touches like a gusseted tongue and buttery suede lining ought to convince anyone still on the fence.
