Bagging Rights

Your correspondent’s father was big on bags.

Always carry one, he said. Makes you look like you know what you’re doing, especially if you don’t.

So if you want to look like you know what you’re doing, hit the first ever NYC outpost of Filson, now open in Nolita.

C.C. Filson got his start back in the 1890s, when he opened a Seattle shop to outfit prospectors headed north to the Klondike Gold Rush.

You can bet your beardy dollar that anything built Yukon-tough will have no trouble standing up to your boat-shoe’d exploits.

We’re partial to the hunting vest-y Original Sportsman’s Bag — just big enough for a weekend’s worth of gear — and the Leather Field Satchel, which looks like a shoulder bag The Hound would carry.

Also, the debut of Filson’s camera bag collab with Magnum Photos, along with brawny menswear staples like rainprooof waxed twill jackets, bombproof leather boots and henleys with shotgun patches. Yes, shotgun patches.

Fill ‘er up and go.
