What do when you’ve perfected the winter coat and you’re only in competition with yourself?
Woolrich John Rich & Bros have solved this problem with the introduction of a fresh capsule of outerwear for Fall/Winter 2016. The new assortment was partially made and designed in Japan by Kaptain Sunshine designer Shinsuke Kojima. Among the many gems, one of our favorites is Kojima’s re-envisioning of Woolrich classics using British materials such as Harris tweed, Shetland wool and ventile.
Woolrich’s Americana inspiration certainly came through in the mainline collection which features the brand’s much-loved “Arctic Parka,” now with a fur-free hood. The assortment also premiered details like an American flag and USA woven blanket lining. In partnership with Gore-Tex, Woolrich coats are also waterproof, windproof, and comfortably breathable.
The collection is available in Woolrich stores throughout Europe, USA, Canada, Tokyo and Seoul.
