Robust, good-looking, stylishly reserved, street-ready and honey-tongued. These words apply to both the acclaimed American singer-songwriter and musician Chris Stapleton and the newbies Stapleton inspired traveler collection Bags from Filson. You may be wondering why a collaboration between the award-winning country music sensation and the 126-year-old provider of rugged gear and apparel even makes sense. Actually, there are so many reasons for this perfect collaboration between style and lifestyle, influenced by great music.
Firstly, both Stapleton and Filson are often associated with travel, the former largely thanks to his multi-platinum 2015 album Traveller– The latter because Filson traces his roots to the equipment and clothing of prospectors who headed west and traveled as far as Alaska in hopes of striking it rich.
Second, both Filson and Stapleton are known for a rugged, understated style; For the singer, this comes in the form of his usual outfit of blazer and button-down pants, complemented by a straw cowboy hat. For Filson, it is embodied through his garments like this Short lined pewter fabric cruiser jacketa piece that looks so good in its sophisticated and elegant simplicity, it keeps you warm and is water resistant which is just the icing on the cake.
Third, Stapleton states that he has been wearing Filson clothing and gear since he was a teenager, making this a pretty cool full-circle childhood wish situation.
After all, both Filson and Stapleton are so damn quintessentially American. You saw the singer’s rendition of the national anthem at the Super Bowl, right?
