John Rich and Bros. Women’s FW15 Preview


Inspired by the authenticity of the brand’s classic American woolen garments, the Woolrich John Rich & Bros. Women’s Fall Winter collection for 2015 shifts the accent toward a range of cutting-edge feminine coats, transformed by the skilled hands of contemporary design. Down filled Arctic Parkas, Italian wools and fashion-forward cuts characterize the key items making up the new collection.

In nearly half a century, the Arctic Parka has undergone a number of changes to keep pace with shifting fashions.  Alongside its unrivaled quality, its appeal lies in its subtle, yet accurate interpretation of contemporary taste. A garment whose primary purpose is functional – and in this aspect it has undeniably accomplished its goal – the Arctic Parka has also set out create a new context by offering different fits, lengths, water resistant fabrics and fur options.

The Eskimo range for women features different styles and cuts: the Literary Walk, Rex and Fox Eskimos come in warm winter cotton and are trimmed in rich fur. Adding to the likes of this cool girl silhouette, we are excited to introduce the Military Eskimo in the iconic Shape Memory fabric with warm 90/10 down filling, a fishtail back and raccoon fur trims for cold winters.

In celebration of the 185th anniversary of Woolrich, a series of wool archival coats have been reinterpreted for the modern day woman. The Allgood Coat in the iconic buffalo check sports a new cocoon shape with a removable down lining, making it ideal for both fall and winter. Welt pockets, a detachable fur trimmed hood and superb Italian wool make up the Bonded Wool Parka, which draws inspiration from the traditional Woolrich blanket coats popular in the 1970s and ’80s.

John Rich and Bros. Men’s FW15 Preview


Woolrich is excited to present the John Rich and Bros. Men’s Fall Winter collection for 2015. This latest offering includes three complete ranges, each with a unique theme, to keep you warm and stylish in the colder months ahead.

Pulling inspiration from our storied past, the Authentic range commemorates the 185th anniversary of the Woolrich brand. Classic wool fabrics, developed in our Pennsylvania factory, are highlighted in fresh new looks for a truly iconic feel. The lining of our signature Arctic Parka, for instance, is now available in six different wool patterns, including those from our traditional Civil War blanket series.

Fast forwarding to the present, the Contemporary range blends technological advances in performance, lightness and design to create the perfect balance in outerwear that’s great for everyday city use. For the first time in our history, we’ve partnered with GORE-TEX® to create a high-performance fabric with a sophisticated urban look that’s available as a parka, a trench-coat and a storm-jacket.

Rounding out the collection, the Teton range features pieces defined by durability, performance and protection. Every garment is made from lightweight laminated-nylon fabric, Polartec 620-fill power duck-down, and high-quality coyote-fur trim.

Woolrich is proud to release a series of collectible blankets whose proceeds will benefit the nonprofit organizations charged with protecting three of America’s best known National Scenic Trails: The Appalachian Trail, The Continental Divide Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail. In addition to these pieces, we’re also introducing a blanket commemorating a Woolrich hometown favorite, Pennsylvania’s Mid State Trail.

This launch is part of a larger effort to highlight the importance of the organizations protecting and stewarding the “Triple Crown of Hiking Trails” so that future generations will continue to enjoy all of the beauty and wilderness this country has to offer. Click the links below to learn more about these wonderful organizations:

Appalachian Trail Conservancy
Continental Divide Trail Coalition
Pacific Crest Trail Association
Mid State Trail Association

All blankets made in the USA.

The Appalachian Trail
As one of the longest, continuously-marked footpaths in the world at 2,180 miles long, the Appalachian Trail runs from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Katahdin, Maine. Approximately 2-3 million hikers visit this popular trail each year, with about 2,000 attempting to “thru-hike” the entire trail. Our Appalachian Trail blanket pays homage to the rugged souls who complete this 6-month journey with a soft wool jacquard weave blanket displaying the “A.T.” trail marker.

The Continental Divide Trail
Considered to be the crown jewel in the Triple Crown of long-distance hiking trails, the Continental Divide Trail stretches 3,100 miles from Mexico to Canada at altitudes ranging from 4,000 – 14,000 feet. To honor this challenging trail, we created the Continental Divide Trail blanket. Woven in a jacquard pattern in lightweight soft wool, with a graphic representation of the CDT emblem.

The Pacific Crest Trail
Quite possibly one of the most challenging long hikes in the United States, the Pacific Crest Trail runs from the Mexican border to the Canadian border, winding its way through bone-dry deserts, deep forests and heavily glaciated terrain. Our Pacific Crest Trail Blanket pays tribute to this majestic 2,650 mile trail. Lightweight soft wool woven in a jacquard pattern with the PCT emblem.

The Mid State Trail
Our Mid-State Trail Blanket commemorates Pennsylvania’s longest and wildest footpath: the Mid-State Trail. A section of this trail crosses through our village and the surrounding area and we’re proud to help maintain the MST in our region. This jacquard-weave soft wool blanket captures the spirit of this rugged, 310-mile trail.

Pack Up and Go: Vancouver Island, B.C.

2014-4-21_greatnorthernchase-605

There are few things better than taking a road trip with your closest friends. Adventure, surprises, and unforgettable stories are all but promised to those who are willing to get in the car and simply drive. Throw in a destination like the outdoor mecca of Vancouver Island, and you’re sure to be treated to all three. Such was the case earlier this summer, when Shaun Daley and company made just the trip, traveling 10 hours north from Portland for some weekend fun. Besides the intensely rich landscape, the crew was heavily rewarded for their explorational efforts with camp fires, sun rises, fresh fish, ferry rides, and more. Click through the slideshow below to relive their journey.

Getting there…


Into the woods…
