The Timeless, Rugged Style of the Wool Cruiser Jacket

From workwear staple to classic menswear style.


The wool jacket has been a staple garment of loggers and hunters for a century, and its simple design should make it an easy fit for your cold-weather wardrobe. Since Filson designed the Mackinaw jacket for timber cruisers in 1914, other brands have offered variations on the garments, but Filson’s design has remained relatively unchanged. Warm, durable and timeless, this jacket should be a core piece in every man’s closet.
