Back in 1830 Woolrich began with a purpose of providing wives of hunters and trappers with the fabric to make warm garments.  Today, Woolrich is still considered rough and rugged among brands marketing themselves as Americana heritage.  And though I'm not particularly in tune with what is or what isn't en vogue with the hunter-gather crowd these days, I do understand that Woolrich also retains a huge following abroad.  Along with LL Bean, The North Face, Patagonia and a few others, it is considered among the gold standard of earthy wear.  

I will admit that this 1960's edition of the the Woolrich line is obviously well made.  The wool outer is finely stitched, the buttons reinforced and when I wore it around a bit outside, I found out it is damn warm without the help of some modern Uniqlo heattech level technologies.  There's a reason why both skaters and buck hunters alike mess with old school Woolrich. 

As always, I am open to legitimate offers on all garments.  Inquires can be sent to funkymonsieur@gmail.com
