About Me Casual Dresser
A great vest . Warm ,comfortable ,tough .
I did not expect this to be as classy looking as it is. The color Herringbone is rather muted and paired well with a subtle plaid on white shirt. A large fit my 6'2 190 lb husband perfectly. I would order this on grey also but it's sold out for now.

great classic design
from bay city michigan
I have been looking for a vest all season and was just not satisfied with anything I was finding at other retail stores. My thought was "the Woolrich store will have just what I am looking for". I was fortunate enough to visit the last Woolrich Outlet site left in the country which I have been a customer of for years. They had this vest in my favorite color of red plaid and even though it is a men's model/style, it fits perfect and has the syle I like. I guarantee, I'll have it for years to enjoy. Thank you for continually making classic clothing of quality.

Purchased in Herringbone color,it is understated and goes looks well with even a subtle plaid shirt. My husband is 6'2", 200 lbs. A large was a perfect fit. I did not expect to like this but it looks great on him. It's cool with a corduroy jacket over it. Nice!
Nicest vest I've ever owned
from Benicia, CA
from Bovina, NY
I bought this for my husband who works outside and also hunts. Great underlayer and can wear it hunting or out to dinner or to work.
same size as another- looser fit
from Saint Paul
Nice design and material. I was astonished to see the same item in a different color fit so differently
Neat & chic
By wife of a salesman
from Cumberland, ME
I bought this for my husband who is a big man. Fit is good. I really wanted a different color - the one that was in the catalogue (gray & black ticking)but it was not available in XXL. Best of all -he likes it!
By Dr C
I love the vest. I found the quality of the ribbing around the seams to be less than that expected from a company with Woolrich's reputation. The vest looks great - but the material is rather stiff when zipped - not pliable.
Utility Wool Vest is Warm & Versatile
By Steve the Outdoorsman
from Richmond, VA
I use this vest for warmth during mid-Atlantic winters. I like the classic look. Yes, there are upgrades but retained the look of the ones of years ago. The zipper is OK but I wish there were a button-up version.

This will be a warm, comfortable, yet stylish addition to my husband's wardrobe.
By Fashion Lad
from Okemos, Mich.
The vest is comfortable, fits well, and is flattering to wear. It has a casual air to it that oozes confident elegance. It looks equally well under a sport coat or over denim. I wear it to work and social affairs high and low.The only knock is that I wish the zipper pull were smaller or lied flat more easily. Having it stick out at the top detracts just slightly from the overall look.
Love it. Quality throughout. Warm and breathable. The pockets are very useful for hunting.

WAS TOO SHORT

See all my reviews
My third Utility Vest !Cut a bit snug, so go up one size especially if you wear heavy shirt.
It's about half right.....
Where the big point was this vest was to carry the railroad pocket watch, this current version does not includ anyplace to attach a watch chain now. I CARRY railroad pocket watches, and due to the fact there's no place to put a T bar or spring ring from a chain for my railroad watch, I rarely wear the vest in the set up it was made for....railroad watches. Pretty ironic!
Would buy again

The perfect vest for cooler weather.
from Bartlesville, Oklahoma
I was looking for a vest to "fit" into our Oklahoma weather, in other words, one that was stylish, yet light weight enough for our cool Oklahoma days in the winter. This vest was the perfect product and is very thinning as well. I bought a vest from Woolrich last year and like its performance as well. Thanks for continuing to make such serviciable clothing. Sincerely, Steve Leroux, Bartlesville, Oklahoma

Great for layers.
from Juneau, WI
Twelve years ago I worked with some boat builders on a 137 ft 3 masted schooner. Two of the shipwrights had this vest. I purchased one and have worn it in layers, while working outdoors. It very durable and yet light enough to be comfortable and warm. It is also very good looking for casual wear.
Great light vest!!!
from Orwigsburg, PA
I like this product. I purchased it to replace the exact same item, that was still in great shape, except for a tear that I put there. Will definitely purchase again, when needed.
Men's Utility Wool Vest
from Ocean City, MD
Bought as a Christmas gift. Purchased a sweater vest for same person 3 years ago; and, he was so pleased with the vest and wore it often that I decided he would likely find this vest to be very useful as well.
from Wethersfield, CT
A supremely comfortable classic. I love vests for the cooler weather and this will likely be my new favorite.
Love the Vest...
By Frances the shopper
from San Luis Obispo, CA
The Vest was a gift and the recipient loved it! The vest is a great match to wear with a white shirt and jeans or a more dressed up look with dress pants and jacket. The wool is washable which is very appealing and the quality construction will surely make this a vest to be worn for many years to come. The two upper pockets are great for holding glasses or cell phone. The two lower pockets with snaps are a bit shallow but good for holding keys or loose change. The first time worn the number of compliments were amazing with may inquiries of where it was purchased......will have to order another in another color.
Second time around
By Woody Woodworker
from Providence, Ri
The vest is used in a work shop situation in an old mill building where the heat is kept low in the winter. Works well for layering, is durable and small pockets work well to hold pencils and measuring devices. Wonderful product.
from Monroe Township, NJ
Every other product I purchase from other manufacturers at size XXL is loose, this was tight and so it's a skimpy cut.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Formerly fine product
By Jack the boxer
a shame you renamed it and used cheaper materials and added the woolrich name tag. Formerly a fine product, which i bought 8 years ago and still weaqr every day. Gettin a bit tacky & worn now, but what the hell.

I like this vest enough that I bought it in three colors. Wear them often from Oct - Apr. Good look, versatile, and warm. I wear them around the house, under my motorcycle gear and with my sport coat when I go out on the town. Looks great and feels great.
Hope to have this product forever

Have had vest for short time but know I will probably buy another. These vests are great for layering while hunting,fishing, or just hangin. Lightweight and warm with classic style. A bit bigger sized pockets would be nice when wearing alone.
