UNIFORM | Filson Cowichan Sweaters

It's officially sweater weather, even here in L.A. (well, OK, at night). To usher in the season, Filson seasonally partners with members of the Cowichan Tribes of British Columbia to create limited edition knits. This year's Cowichan sweaters, made by hand using traditional Cowichan knitting methods of course, are pretty great looking. The technique combines traditional weaving with European Fair Isle techniques, and have been popular since the 1950s for ladies and dudes alike—especially this dude. Check out the entire Filson Cowichan collection, which includes scarves and mittens as well.

I'm so glad you reference Lebowski because my first thought upon seeing these sweaters pop up on my reader was, "THE DUDE ABIDES!" Brilliant. I'd totally get one if they weren't out of my price range, unfortunately.

Hi Lizzie,

Can you post leads to some good winter gear-specifically nice leather gloves.
