Founded in Seattle in 1897, outdoor enthusiasts’ outfitter and manufacturer C.C. Filson Co. built its first flagship store in its hometown’s SoDo (South of Downtown).
Today, May 12, 2014, Filson opened its first retail store at NoHo (North of Houston) in Manhattan. The approximately 1800 square-foot Filson store is located in the NoHo district at 40 Great Jones Street between the Bowery and Lafayette Street.
Filson’s sixth location and its first store in the East Coast is next door to the iconic Beaux Arts firehouse, home to Engine Company 33 and Ladder Company 9 of the New York City Fire Department.
“Filson is delighted with this new opportunity to bring our unfailing goods to the New York City adventurer,” said Alan Kirk, Chief Executive Officer of Filson. “Founded as a rugged working man’s outfitter, it feels right that Filson will be located next to a firehouse.”
The store offers a variety of signature luggage, leather accessories, apparel and iconic outerwear such as the 100-year-old Mackinaw Cruiser.
The store is also the first retail location to offer Filson’s new line of camera bags, developed in collaboration with Magnum Photos. The first four bags in the collection are designed to spec by photographers David Alan Harvey and Steve McCurry and feature custom signature labeling.
