For over 165 years, Woolrich has produced the Buffalo Check pattern
at the brand’s woolen mill in central Pennsylvania.
was first introduced in 1850 with Woolrich’s iconic Buffalo Check Wool Shirt.
For FW18 Woolrich pays homage to the historical checked pattern synonymous with the brand.
The Hunting Cape with tied waist and four pockets and the
classic double-breasted Silverton Check Coat, shown above.
Hunting Eskimo Embroidered Jackets, shown above,
are sold exclusively at the mono-brand stores of the House, and represent the highlight of the
FW18 collection. The recurrent checked pattern is also found on pencil dresses and skirts,
laminated cotton blazers and carrot pants, as well as on accessories.
The color palette that offsets the buffalo check
are light shades of denim and classic melton blue,
with a mélange of grays and natural shades of beige and taupe.
The Comfort Anorak and the new line of Aurora Puffy Coats
ensures Woolrich’s relevance on the city streets.
Water repellent City Fabric is the result of state-of-the-art outerwear
and the material these styles are built upon. A marked 80s inspiration
referencing the streets of Brooklyn and Harlem
translates into the bold hues of yellow, white, red and melton blue through wide necklines
and a detachable hood, offered with a graphic print for men and women.
Windproof and waterproof fabric lays on the GTX Arctic and Saranac Parka styles,
joining other technical pieces such as the A-Line Parka and the Hadley Military Vest
that combine a cotton laminated lining with a Teflon outer shell.
Fedora hats, wool beanies, hiker boots, sneakers with checkered patterned tongues and
fur-lined mountain and fisher boots featuring
Vibram outsoles and Megagrip rubber compound round out the collection.
