Combining American heritage with Japanese tailoring, Filson brings on prolific designer Junya Watanabe for an exclusively designed edition of the brand’s iconic Denim Cruiser. The Japanese designer reimagines Filson’s bestselling silhouette for the jacket’s 110th anniversary year.

By bringing together Watanabe’s avant-garde streetwear vision with Filson’s timeless functionality, the limited edition Cruiser is designed to feature a denim front, nylon back and faux leather patchwork detailing on the sleeves. Very much Watanabe-coded, the Cruiser transforms to a modern icon in the new century. The Cruiser has been a staple jacket at Filson’s since 1897 and was patented in 1914 by founder C.C. Filson. The style of jacket has been one the most popular designs in over a century. Its utilitarian pockets featuring a full-width rear pocket that originally utilized by surveyors to carry maps all the way to the buttons are all a part of the American legacy brand’s functional roots.

In a statement regarding the collaboration, Chief Creative Officer Alex Carleton said, “At Filson, we’ve built our heritage on creating timeless, functional pieces to last a lifetime. Junya Watanabe’s work has always challenged the status quo, pushing the boundaries of what fashion can be. This collaboration allows us to do both – celebrate our legacy while infusing it with Watanabe’s signature style. The result is a truly unique denim jacket that’s both innovative and built to withstand the elements. It’s a perfect meeting of form and function for the modern explorer.”

The Filxon x Junya Watanabe Denim Cruise is available online at Filson and at its NYC flagship store for $1,500 USD and ranges from XS to XL in size.
