Yesterday in the Vanson. Today in the LW.
I have a Filson Tin Cruiser in a size no longer made (40L) that I loved and wore for years; was even serviceable as winter wear down into the high-20sF (~ -3c) if worn over a heavy wool turtleneck. Great arrangement of pockets and fairly rainproof if I kept up with re-waxing. After 7 years of wear I tried to send it back to Filson for repair [the shoulder seam had ripped out] but the company refused to honor their lifetime guarantee as I had had the gall to have previously sewn smaller tears in the jacket myself. Really disappointed in their Customer Service and haven't bought any Filson since.
So I actually figured I'd at least try wearing the Sugar Cane and whole day I was like No way I'm selling this, best, nicest jacket I ever had - just so comfortable and easy to wear and it feels light even though it's by no definition even a mid weight jacket - but then when it got colder and I tried to zip it up... No way.
There isn’t a submariner sweater or perhaps an IH hoodie that is not as thick? That jacket is perfection man.
I would just use it when you’re not wearing anything more than a tee or shirt.
Lumberjack mode Duke

What a heartbreak!
Somebody’s got to say it....
A couple hundred sit-ups a day for a couple three months and you are there with a six pack to spare.
Storebrand darkblue Storm Rider.
“To survive a war...you’ve gotta become war”. BOOM, that right there is movie gold. Anyhow, great jacket.
Rode about 50 miles in a downpour today. The J23 kept me dry. I was impressed.
The jacket is soaked through and feels amazing. New grain on back, shoulder and arms. The combo of rain, motorcycle and high speed is the best way to break in a heavy jacket.
Leather over type3 as usual.
Without jacket, it is also the best way to break in a pair of lungs
Ivan this is Sad. Really Sad. Sad because you wanted it so badly then...cannot wear it as you wanted to. Sad as you may loose funds in the transactions to buy, ship, try, sell, ship, oh well. And honestly speaking, where will you ever find another one?
What does it look like over just a long-sleeve Tee Shirt? I know it's not practical, but the other 50% of the year, it might just work out. Hum, maybe worth a look?
59’er highwayman today!
For that right sleeve alone you shouldn't sell this jacket!
Great jacket! Who makes those gloves? Tks.
thanks! They’re from a Swedish heritage company called Hestra, been around since 1936. https://hestragloves.com/sport/sv-se/gloves/sport-classic/20870-tallberg/861/
