If you haven't stopped by The Field House lately, it's more than a little likely that you've probably forgotten about the tremendous selection of good old goodies that our little general store has to offer. Even some of us here at the shop are finding ourselves in a state of astonishment for the cause of the incredible collection of good ol' goodness we've amassed. There's just so much good stuff that we can't even really believe it. And to boot, that ever-mounting stockpile of Americana goodness is contained within a not-so-insignificant 800 square feet of space! We don't really know how we manage to do it, but dammit, it makes us proud.
So, while we were swelling with pride, we went ahead and took a good hard walk through The Field House, aiming to curate an array of items for you to ogle. And well, as it turns out, we've done just that. So, since we went ahead and went to the trouble to practically "bag the buck" for you with this selection, you may as well get this stuff in your crosshairs. Here're five easy targets for you to set your sights on, for starters:
W.R. CASE & SONS CUTLERY CO. - Old Red Bone Knife
DETAILS: A new addition to The Field House, this knife is a handy dandy classic. Featuring unfolding spear and pen blades, this pocket knife possesses the best qualities of an pocket-worn vintage blade and of the ones you might get straight out of the box. 3 5/8"-long when closed.
FILSON - Small Duffle Bag in Dark Tan
DETAILS: A not-so-well-kept Seattle secret, Filson is an old standby for us here in the Northwest. Coming straight out of The Emerald City, this small duffle bag can hold much more than you'd think. This trusty bag is made of rugged 100% cotton twill and includes a brass zip-top closure with leather pull, a snap shut storm flap, fixed-length bridle leather handles with snap shut hand grip, 43-inch adjustable/ removable bridle leather shoulder strap with leather shoulder pad, and interior side pockets. You can't beat this thing. It's like they say: "Might as well have the best."
PENDLETON - Rainier National Park Blanket
DETAILS: Yet another Northwest original, The Rainier Park blanket was introduced by Pendleton Woolen Mills on Febuary 1, 1928 and was originally woven with a representation of flowers found in the pristine scenes that make Mt. Rainier so very special. Eventually, the design evolved into a solid colored body with three lines of black, yellow and green.
ALDEN - Unlined Suede Chukka Boot in Snuff
DETAILS: Built on Alden's Leydon last, this attractive unlined boot is easily worn with or without socks. Versatile year round, it can be worn with shorts or lightweight chinos in the summer and jeans or wool trousers in the winter. Note: Alden shoes are available to special order in C and EE widths. We stock D width which works best for most men.
ALASKA BLACK DIAMOND - Seawoman Totem Pole
DETAILS: A hand-carved and painted totem pole from Ward Cove, AK. Made of yellow cedar grown deep in the South-Alaskan rainforest, this totem gal measures a good 16" tall. This carving depicts the legend of the Seawoman, who pines for her dead husband. You'll be sure to impress your house guests with that one, eh?
Well, that's the news from The Field House for tonight. Be on the lookout for another assemblage of good good stuff for tomorrow. After all, it'll just be another glorious day at The Field House.
