I first learned about Winter Session from the founders of local apparel consulting group Single Needle. We were having coffee together, when one of them, noticing my Filson bag, told me I should give the brand a look, as their stuff was similar. To be honest, I was a little skeptical. Up until that point, I hadn’t come across any truly impressive Chicago makers. That Winter Session was not only making here, but also supposedly producing goods on par with Filson’s, well it was a little hard to believe.
