Can anyone tell me where the 'Tin Cloth' comes into it? Looks like waxed to me. Not been able to reference it, every google query just comes up with adverts.
Seems a silly name if there is no 'tin' connection. But maybe it's just me
I guess 'tin' is a colloquial way of saying 'hard-wearing'. ... unlike all the other makers of true metal pants.
I'm not sure you'd make a convincing case under any Sale of Goods Act
Filson make great quality coats and vests. I've worn a wool cruiser most cold days the past 9 years, and it's just starting to show its age in wear around the cuffs and elbows. Good protection against cold and rain. As said above, the turnaround time for drying out makes it very usable in intermittent rainy cold for quite long periods - like half a day to a day's walking around in the open. Perfect for UK outdoors.
I got a wool-lined tin cloth vest last year, and it's proving a great winter extra layer.
