“I have to wear a suit to work. Not suit and tie, though — in Copenhagen, wearing a tie is not part of the corporate culture anymore.”

David Squire, 53, Teacher, from Washington, D.C.

“I have four or five Filson vests. A couple of the Mackinaw jackets. And a few of the bags as well. I even visited the original Filson in Seattle last year.”

Kevin Mallory, 58, Sales, from Chicago

Charlie Reighard, 25, Medical Student, from New York

“I’m looking for gloves. I have very poor circulation, I think, so I’ve been spending the morning at a few different shops trying some pairs out. I actually didn’t find a pair I liked.”

Peter Marley, 29, Photographer, from Ireland

“I’m in the props department on Game of Thrones, and this week we’ve been outdoors every single day. My Filson tin-cloth trousers and woolen vests have made it bearable.”

Philip Willerslev-Olsen, 34, Economist, from Denmark

“Before this, I was at Incase, the Nike store, and Bose. It was really fun to go in New York because the dollar is really weak right now.”
