Join #PlaidNation – show your love of all things plaid!

plaidcouple-s14

Few patterns are as enduring or American as plaid. While simple in concept – crisscrossed bands of color in different widths and sizes – plaid is infinite in possibility. Our buffalo check flannel plaid has been a cold weather favorite for generations, valued for its versatility and rugged good looks. And with that as our starting point, we’re pleased to offer our spring collection – chock full of plaids in brighter, trend-right colors and lighter, cooler fabrics for the warm weather ahead. Whether it’s one of our many popular shirts, or a blanket woven in the USA, we invite you to join the Plaid Nation.

Don’t miss your chance to show your love of all things plaid and your photo just might appear on one of our social media sites or Woolrich.com!  So hashtag #PlaidNation and follow us on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Tumbler @WoolrichInc.

About Woolrich White

“Woolrich White will be a focused assortment of styles that are deeply influenced by our storied legacy. But it’s more than a take on classic pieces. We set out to design a collection that would be relevant to today’s modern customer while staying true to our outdoor roots,” said Josh W. Rich, Woolrich Executive Vice President.

Woolrich White, which features modern cuts and fitted silhouettes, is a direct link to the company’s vast archive and is inspired by the brand’s authenticity, craftsmanship and tradition of honoring the American landscape.

Continuing the brands commitment to increase its domestic manufacturing, many of the pieces from the Woolrich White collection utilize wool from the historic woolen mill in Woolrich, PA, the oldest vertically integrated woolen mill operating in the country. With a focus on outerwear, which has always been synonymous with Woolrich, the collection includes a variety of jackets and vest as well as sportswear in various wool fabrications.

Stay Cool and Comfortable in Our Penn Mere Shirt

The new Penn Mere Shirt, with its subtle feminine print motif  of the mountain laurel flower, is a nod to our Pennsylvanian outdoor heritage. Whether you are enjoying a cup of coffee and a book on your porch, are meeting a friend for lunch, or are out with the family on a weekend adventure, this shirt will keep you cool and comfortable.

The Penn Mere’s lightweight 100% cotton dobby stays away from the skin for a soft, airy feel. With its adjustable three-quarter sleeves, it goes to great lengths for springtime versatility.

This holiday season, invest in Woolrich

wool

Tis the season to shop.This holiday season, why not invest in a vest for any loved one on your list. Woolrich’s lineup of classic, wool, fleece and down vests are stylish, warm and crafted according to Woolrich’s high standards for quality and performance.

Our testers loved the vintage-style Ruxton Wool Vest, with its classic pointed front and adjustable strap in back. It’s comfortable for casual wear with jeans and also pairs well with dress slacks. Cotton back and full lining keep the vest light and breathable. Three pockets. 90% wool/10% nylon.

We’ve married our classic Heirloom Vest to motorcycle styling for a truly unique Ryder Plaid vest  you won’t find anywhere else. Wool-blend shell with polyester satin lining. The front zipper is offset from right lapel. Slanted zip pocket on right breast. Shaping seams on front and back, with adjustable rear buckle for a custom fit. Lower patch pockets with snap closures. Shell: 80% wool/20% nylon. Liner: 100% polyester. Imported. Dry clean.

Be proactive and ready for winter with the down-filled Langhorne Vest. It is water-repellent and fitted with a chunky zipper behind snap-closure storm flap. Upper lining is buffalo check twill; lower lining is nylon taffeta. The Vest has a down-insulated collar, dual-entry hand-warmer pockets, zippered chest pocket, and zippered internal security pocket. Shell: 60% cotton/40% nylon; liner: 100% nylon. Insulation: 80% duck down/20% duck feathers. Imported. Machine wash.

A customer favorite, the Kinsdale Jacket, now has a corduroy vest of the same velvety wide-wale corduroy. It features princess seams and back shaping darts, stand-up collar, and generous front pockets. 100% cotton. Imported. Machine wash.

Sometimes we’ll visit our archives in search of style and design elements that are as practical today as they were a hundred years ago. Our new Blacktail Vest is a prime example of this. Fortunately today we have the benefit of technical fabrics and fills that help protect us better than those from the past. The durable cotton/poly shell is peached and lightly waxed to repel water. The 60-gram Arctic Insulation™ in body insulates against wind and cold. Button closures front and upper chest pockets. Zippered hand-warmer pockets and one internal security pocket with music media cord access. Lined with the same soft, pebble-washed all-cotton flannel found in our Pemberton Shirt. Button adjustments on either side at back. 57% cotton/43% polyester shell. Imported. Machine wash.
