Here are some recent Filson items on offer through Sierra Trading Post (my source for archival imagery of discontinued Barbour, Filson, John Partridge, Gloverall and Beretta). This month, several styles of waxed cotton shelter cloth jackets are on the chopping block.
If I were the right size, I’d buy the cotton poplin breeze jacket or waxed cotton bomber.
From this selection, I’m sorry to see Filson discontinue their original line of merino socks. The newer models are perfectly functional but incorporate a techno-knit grid pattern that’s visible above the shoe line (if you wear loafers or oxfords).
Since I’m providing these images for visual reference in ten years, I offer no guarantees on sizing or product availability.
Addendum: Some snazzy Barbour Berwick wool breeks that would be perfect for your next tweed ride:
