Levi’s has unveiled its second collaborative effort with Filson. Levi’s Workwear by Filson is a collection that utilizes the time-tested methods and rugged fabrics that both brands have perfected since the 19th century. Filson’s famed Tin Cloth, coined during an era when tin was the standard for toughness, plays a major role in almost all the pieces, alongside Levi’s rigid denim. The five items in the collection were all handcrafted in Filson’s Seattle factory. They are the Tin Cloth Trucker in oiled tin cloth, the all-new Hunter Truck Jacket, Levi’s Sawtooth Western Shirt made from Tin Cloth, Filson’s Original Hunting Vest in Levi’s raw denim, and Levi’s 505 jeans in dry finish Tin Cloth. The collection will debut on August 8th, 2011, in select Levi’s and Filson stores, as well as levis.com and filson.com.
Release Date: August 8th, 2011 (Monday)
