Woolrich Men’s Fall/Winter 2017 – Roots of the icons: Arctic Parka and Mountain Jacket

Woolrich has divided the season into two collections, Fall and Winter.
The Fall collection (drawing upon Alpine inspiration) presents garments for the onset of the season, made using high-performance, hi-tech materials, a prelude to Winter, the heart and soul of the snow-capped season, along with a fresh version of a historic Woolrich icon: the Mountain Jacket. Launched by Woolrich in 1976 as an outdoor jacket for mountaineering, the Goretex version became one of the brand’s signature garments in the 1970s and 80s. The legendary design has been refreshed and reinterpreted for the collection with a contemporary fit and high-performance materials such as Goretex® and Storm system to create a new icon of lightweight, high-performance clothing.



Woolrich has been synonymous with quality outdoor clothing for 185 years. To understand the history of Woolrich is to understand the history of the US garment industry. The company began in the 19th century and continues to produce fabric and clothes with the same traditions. John Rich, son of an English wool carder, immigrated to the USA from Liverpool in search of a new life.  He set up his home in the USA in the wake of the Revolutionary war and established the Woolrich Mill in 1830 in Pennsylvania. Over the generations, Woolrich became one of the United States’ main outdoor and sportswear producers.
