Seattle-based Filson Opens on 14th Street
The outdoorsy men’s shop opened the company’s eighth store on September 29, taking over Shinola’s former location between Q and Church streets. The shop will feature some of the brand’s most iconic outerwear, but as D.C. is Filson’s southernmost location, keep an eye out for jackets in lighter weight material. The new store’s address is 1534 14th St., NW.
