Filson's Soho store was the venue for a talk on "Dressing to Survive"

I was invited by US outdoor gear makers Filson to talk at their London store, about what to wear to survive in the harshest climates on Earth. I went through regions of the world where you need to dress for warmth, to protect from extreme heat, and passed around some stuff I've made myself. A key part of clothing is how it feels when you're wearing it, so I explained the many uses of a Battle of Britain pilot's silk scarf, and then after some great questions, I put on my trusty Filson jacket to head for a pint.
