Words

Over the weekend Mark McNairy and WP Lavori took the Woolrich Woolen Mills collection to Milan for the brands official presentation. It was one of my favorite collections in Florence, so its nice to see a preview of the pieces in a slightly different light here. With the use of some cotton twills, chambray, mesh and some great prints, the collection is well rounded, offering a unique twist on the Americana classics, while injecting a fresh feel and an opportunity to buy the collection in a few different ways - sadly, not in Canada though.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Camp Shirt

—01. Blue floral pattern.
—02. Made in USA.

Words

Daiki Suzuki has picked out a handful of great floral patterns this spring. One of the less hyped, but nice looking shirts is this button up camp shirt from the Woolen Mills collection. I like the straight cut of the shirt, and the clean detailing makes it pretty easy to wear.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Ranger Pants

—02. Soft olive tone, with multiple pockets.

Words

Daiki may not be known for his pant designs, but I do feel that the Ranger pant is one of his best. The leg is fairly slim, and has a nice tapper, but in my experience, sizing up slightly has made for a perfect fit. The light weight olive broad cloth is a really nice choice for a summer pant as well. The tone is really natural looking, and it would be easy to wear almost everyday.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Yosemite Jacket

—01. Burberry cloth fabric.

Words

One of the best new styles in Daiki's last Woolrich collection is the Yosemite jacket. It comes in a khaki Burberry cloth fabric, which is lightweight, and nice for the spring, but ideal for layering the rest of the year. The jacket is just starting to hit Woolen Mills retailers now, starting with Nepenthes in Japan.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Spring Items

—01. Pieces from Daiki's last Woolen Mills collection.

Words

WP Lavori has created something special with Woolrich Woolen Mills. With the change in designers that is in transition right now, it's giving a very traditional brand and product a refreshingly interesting concept, while not taking away from the wear-ability and classic sense of the brand. Daiki Suzuki is one of my favorite designers right now, and although it will be somewhat too bad to see him leave Woolen Mills behind, it will create a renewed interest in both his own brand, and the Woolen Mills collection. Before we have to worry about seasons without Upland shirts, we have one more season from Daiki, which I think looks quite promising. The light colors and good patterns make for a playful, wearable offering, however its still the basics that I'll be stocking up on.

Behind the Scenes: A Lasting Impression

—01. A look behind the Issue 03 editorial by James Pearson-Howes and Simon Roe.

Words

One of the strong points of our latest issue is the editorials. Thanks to the fashion direction of Simon Roe, there's a great balance, some interesting brand features and a tightly edited vision overall. For his own story, Simon worked with James Pearson-Howes to produce a rich and dark take on the Woolrich Woolen Mills fall collection. It was shot in East London and features some great looks from this season. James also captured some nice video footage in between photos.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Over Shirt

01

Images

—01. Perfectly understated
—02. Fantastic pattern and texture.

Words

Most of my jackets are fairly light weight and it's getting a bit too cold now to wear them over just a shirt. It's not quite cold enough for a sweater yet though, and to be honest I'm a bit bored with most of mine. This simple, classic over shirt from Woolrich Woolen Mills fills a void for me as it makes for an easy middle layer. As with most W.W.M., for me it's about the fabric, primarily the colour. From a bit of a distance it's a great Prussian blue, then up close you get that nice bit of pattern with the herringbone weave. The straightforward style of the shirt with the flap pockets can't be argued with either — it's just an all around great staple.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Maine Guide Jacket

—01. Maine Guide jacket in black/blue plaid pattern, 100% wool.

Words

The Maine Guide jacket is arguably the best piece in the Woolrich Woolen Mills collection, especially in the fall. It's been seen in a number of fabrics over the last few years, but the use of black and blue this fall - inspired by Daiki's early memories of Comme des Garcons - may make these the best renditions yet. While The Bureau have the plaid and the plain navy, they didn't pick up what might be my favorite version: the black and blue stripe. I would happily wear either of the three though, and hope to pick up at least one this fall.
