Woolrich is one of the best for service and delivery! I have always had good delivery, never any problems if I have had to exchange an item and always have had prompt response to inquiries.
Comfortable and practical
See all my reviews
Perfect over a sweater or sweatshirt for cool weather. I wear it open over a turtleneck to stay warm at work. The inside pockets let me run errands without having to carry a purse - one pocket for my wallet and one for my phone.

The Prickliest Wool I've Ever Tried On
By Mom the puppy lady
from Philomath, OR
I had to send this back because it was too itchy to even consider. I thought about the type of sweater I could get to layer under it to stop the scratchiness, but I felt the sensation even after I took it off. I hate to pay return shipping! The wool was a coarse army blanket quality. Everything else was great. Nice fit, great pockets, sturdy zipper, cute back belt. And well-made Woolrich quality. The fleece lining didn't stop the itchy feeling.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
All around great !!!!
from Poconos, Pa.
Pleasant surprise !
I was so pleased when I opened the package with my new vest in it. When I put it on ... it felt so good.... It is very very soft and comfortable and fits nice.

About Me Classic Dresser
Very pleased that this is a heavy feeling vest. I love it. Great quality not cheap feeling at all. I felt it was a little high priced for a vest but you get what you pay for. So I feel it is worth the price. It feels like an article of clothing that will last for years and not wear out. Definately recommend it. I always like to save money when I shop but I also like good quality clothing. Love this vest.

I love this vest. Much heavier (in a good way) than I expected, and was a bargain at the sale price. Would be worth the full price as well. My only problem with it is that it feels too long in the torso. My 5'2" body is shorter in the torso. I would offer it to my mom, who has a longer torso than I do at the same height, but she winters in Florida, where this item wouldn't be practical. I haven't decided 100% to send this back, because it might look great with a black skirt, but I'm likely to send it back, as I was hoping to wear it more frequently with jeans or black pants. I strongly recommend this item to anybody who fits the size guide better than I do. I bought it in the burgundy plaid, and it is beautiful.
Very comfy, warm -

I received this vest 3 days ago while i had out of state visitors --- we also had a cold spell so this lush, cozy warm vesthad a chance to show off
Excellent, quality vest.
from Kingdom City, MO
Excellent quailty vest, price was reasonable, very comfortable and stylish. Wear over my shirt and under my coat for work everyday that it is cold enough to need it.
Chunky but warm
This vest is wonderfully warm and cozy. The faux fur is very soft and comes up around your chin when the vest is fully zipped; it's a warm fit around the neck but not too tight. The pockets are warm and in just the right spot. It works great as an additional layer in a drafty house or under a (big) coat.The only drawback is that it's rather boxy and unflattering. This vest as warm as a heavy wool blanket, but it drapes like one too. There's an adjustable buttoned belt on the back that helps a little bit.Since it's more suited to a loose fit, I'd say the sizes run small and would recommend ordering on the large side.
This is my go-to for outdoors
from Richmond, VA
I wear this to the gym; I wear it to church; I wear it to dinner. It goes anywhere. It's warm but also soft and pretty lightweight. Less bulky and more "cuddly" than a down vest. Also good to wear in the wind - the wool is incredible. Just a great product. I'm a total fan of these vests now.
I wish it came in more colors...I'd buy

Perfect for Kansas.
Everything I expected from Woolrich!

Cozy and warm, and the fit is perfect. Looks great with jeans and dress slacks.
Very Warm Vest
By Alaska Grandma
from Central Alaska
In the cold Alaska weather this warm vest will be a perfect fit under a parka during outdoor winter activities.
Again, great Woolrich quality
from Rochester, NY
I layer this product under a lighter weight rain jacket. It keeps me very warm. It's comfortable and nicely styled. I have two of them and they are very comfy, stylish and warm.
Nicely made vest with a nice choice of colors. I got ruby and I think it looks so nice on. I wore mine under an lighter weight coat and was really warm (it was about 20 degrees outside.) I purchased a plaid design as well just to have a little choice in my life. Really, I could not have made a better winter purchase. The interior is soft, the vest is comfy, it looks good. I think that this was definitely an excellent choice. Thank you, Woolrich, for such a beautiful quality item!
from Little Rock, AR
This vest surpassed my expectations with it's looks. It's soft, rich black lining looks luxurious as it edges the red & black wool layer. The left inside zippered pocket is an extra bonus. It's a great value for the price and will be perfect for Arkansas cool weather.
How many Somerton Vests do you need?
from Marietta, Ga.
This is my favorite vest. That's why I have three of them. After seeing mine, several of my friends also purchased a vest. We should start a Somerton Vest club. The black vest is dressy, the red vest is casual and the plaid vest is sporty. All three are warm and cozy. Love them.
fits beautifully & feels like a warm hug
By victoria the artist
from auburn, CA
The vest is flattering and functional. My friends beeline for the soft faux fur lining that is also an accent trim. The wool plaid is subtle and doesn't override what I'm wearing. This will look great for years to come.
Timeless "investment" garment.

Bring on the holidays! This arrived just in time to provide the extra layer needed for the Napa Valley's version of winter.
I was disappointed
By Bargain hunter, Barb
from Oregon Coast
Unfortunately, the vest was WAY too big. I always wear a large, and I wouldn't even know whether to try a med. or small. I didn't want to keep exchanging the item, so just returned it.
Going to be a favorite
from Coos Bay, OR
Love this vest! The length is perfect because it's a little bit longer so my shirt won't hang out and covers the hips a little. It also has a couple of inside pockets which is a nice feature and would be great for a phone. The outer pockets are extra deep and cozy. I will be able to wear this with a thin or a little heavier sweater. First time I wore it today and I hope people don't get tired of seeing me wear it too much!
from pacific northwest
This is a perfect piece for my casual wardrobe althought I can also see it paired with my wool skirts for a slightly dressier look. Soft and beautiful black and white plaid.
Great looking and Warm!
from Pollock Pines, Ca.
I love everything I've ever bought from you!
Excellent quality - quick delivery
I like this vest- it's comfortable and stylish
Something different that I don't have
This is something different from anything else that I have to wear. I like to layer my outfits to suit the various temperatures that I run into on the job.
