We at Blackbird are used to a certain inevitability of rain. We don't sing that old song about rain coming again some other day. We already know it will. And the day after that. So instead of bumming on the downpour, we gear up for the puddle splashing.

Two of our most essential items in stock right now, no matter what time of year it is, are our Filson umbrellas and Tretorn boots. Tretorn is like a Swedish cousin to Filson and underline the Scandinavian connections already existing in Seattle. Both companies were started in the 1890s and have weathered time, as well as rain, to find themselves both still sought after and still as in style as ever.

The classic style umbrella from Filson is made of their famous lightweight and water repellant Cover Cloth and comes in otter green. This umbrella is built to the usual Filson standards and is as rugged and durable as it is utterly gentleman in its subliminal high class aura. As if that weren't enough, it comes with a full guarantee for the life of the item, just like all of their products.

Tretorn boots are a must-have for anybody wanting to be ready for any type of weather. Not sure if it's going to rain today? Wear a pair of Tretorns and you don't just look smart and ready, but fashionable too. They also make styles and colors for absolutely everyone, whether you want the subtle chelsea boot pull on, the more versatile look of a mid-calf boot, or a calf-high boot for come what may. In fact, the look is so modern and classic at the same time it's able to be worn whether it's raining or not.
