woolrich enlists goldwin to create for ss19

The Japanese ski & lifestyle company has a stake in the American outerwear brand

Japanese outwear manufacturers and all round lords of outerwear Goldwin recently acquired a stake in classic American outerwear brand Woolrich. This is great news for outdoor enthusiasts and enthusiasts of outdoor clothes because they're in to sharing each other's knowledge and making great product. The collection debuted at the Mecca of menswear that is Pitti Uomo recently.

The first collection made with Goldwin's input is dope. Some very lovely pieces indeed. The collection has been designed and made in Japan using Goldwin's technological ability which is probably world class. If you have the chance to check out their own brand it is very, very well made and they got their start manufacturing skiing and outdoor wear and most notably acquired the license for The North Face in Japan and then started the ever desirable Purple Label. So to describe this collection as legit is nothing short of the truth.

The pieces that catch the eye are of course the utility vest, the cap with those lovely stripes and super minimal branding and the green zip through. That one in particular looks like I would want to swish my arms around in the breeze on a long walk. You know, just appreciating the fabric and my environment. It's very cool also that they haven't abandoned the house check with it appearing in pops here and there, on a shirt and a jacket lining.
