With Daiki Suzuki steering Woolrich Woolen Mills for the past couple of seasons, the label has been heading in a good direction of rugged, outdoor American style and gained a good following of fans. As the weather gets colder and natural phenomenon gets a little more erratic with snow and sun and perhaps, more snow, function and utility never matter so much before.
This season, Woolrich Woolen Mills continue to bring us an excellent selection of classic outerwear that are well-cut yet tough. Olive colored Mountain Ripstop Parka with just the right amount of nonchalant crinkle has an adjustable waistband and enough pockets to hold everything will be perfect to take from a hike in the morning to a trip through the city. Feeling dressier? An unstructured navy lightweight three-button blazer threads just the right line between Sunday casual and date appropriate when layered over crisp white or plaid shirts. Of course, what’s Woolrich Woolen Mills without the signature plaid? Check out the woolen plaid sports jacket with leather elbow patches that is all about the aristocratic outdoor look and definitely not the same as your grandfather’s blazer.
As we’ve heard, Suzuki’s stay at Woolrich Woolen Mills will possibly be ending in three seasons, so there is no better time to stock up on favorites while it lasts. The jackets are now available online at Blackbird, so there’s really no reason to wait.
