A love of the great outdoors is woven into Filson’s heritage — the company was formed in the late 1800s during the Klondike Gold Rush, when founder C.C. Filson used his mill to fashion clothing, boots, blankets and sleeping bags for weary miners.

Now with storefronts across the U.S. and London, Filson brings its full run of heritage outdoor apparel, bags, leather goods and accessories to Highland Park Village. An outdoorsman’s haven, the store stocks Tin Cloth jackets and Mackinaw Cruisers, stacks of hunting and fishing gear, luggage (duffels, backpacks, rucksacks, travel kits, coolers) and glass cases displaying Filson’s watch collection.

Like its HP Village neighbor, Shinola, all of Filson’s timepieces are crafted in Detroit — the new Dutch Harbor collection ($750 to $950) is inspired by classic dive watches from the ’50s. Filson, 51A Highland Park Village, 469.680.1372.
