This holiday season, invest in Woolrich

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.
