Filson x Chris Stapleton Collaboration

Chris Stapleton, an eight-time Grammy winner and platinum selling singer-songwriter and the leading outfitter and manufacturer of unfailing goods, Filson, have announced an exciting new partnership.

This collaboration will create a collection new and iconic bags designed in collaboration with Chris. “Being a long-time admirer of Filson, I saw an opportunity to collaborate and bring back some of the old patterns I loved,” stated Chris. The Chris Stapleton ‘Traveller Collection’ will be available for purchase exclusively on Filson’s website starting October 5, 2023. The Traveller collection takes its name from Chris’s highly acclaimed 2015 debut solo album.

Available now is a custom Filson graphic tee supporting Outlaw State of Kind (OSOK), a charitable fund founded by Chris and Morgane Stapleton that supports a variety of causes in collaboration with the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, of which all proceeds will be donated to OSOK.

Chris Stapleton grew up in a small Kentucky town where hunting and Filson gear were part of everyday life. He watched his father put on his prized Filson vest while hunting upland birds with his family’s English setters. Those are lasting memories for Chris, who now uses Filson bags and clothing to good use on tour.

Roark’s Hokkaido Tiger Club Collection

Say what you will, but souvenirs ain’t just for tourists. Inspired by the iconic souvenir jacket, or Sukajan, popularized by post-WWII American GIs looking to bring something home from overseas, Roark’s Hokkaido Tiger Club collection was born. Like any culturally significant artifact, the Sukajan, and the intricate embroideries it displayed, quickly became a fashion statement the world over, ironically serving as a symbol of rebellion among 1960s youth. The newest capsule from our Fall ’23 journey, the Hokkaido Tiger Club Collection — including boardshorts, a hoodie, a hat, and yes, an actual Sukajan souvenir jacket — is out now and ready to be rebelled in.
