The quest for new materials, fabrics and treatments, whilst at the same time paying close attention to the brand’s history, distinguishes the Woolrich John Rich & Bros Spring/Summer 2016 collection, the series includes advanced technical performance garments and the new Rainwear line, a proven line developed in 5 different fabrics and the launch of the first Woolrich Summer Parka.

A menswear collection designed to keep pace with the seasons, including heavier weight or performance coats, suitable for differing uses. Down Program introduces the Ultralight line comprising blazer, bomber jacket, jacket and gilet. The extraordinary lightness of 90/10 down, together with a new Komatsu 20 denier HD ripstop fabric, takes you through to summer. Featuring tear-resistant, classic horizontal channel quilting alongside diamond quilting, the silicone treatment makes this range water-resistant and down proof.

For Spring Summer 2016 Woolrich is bringing for the first time the iconic Artic Parka into spring, introducing a light version of the icon. Realized in the new city fabric, soft and natural feeling quality, waterproof, breathable triple-layer fabric in a blend of Polyester and Viscose, the summer parka maintains the design of the iconic artic parka: same pocket and hood system and same iconic details. Comfortable, yet resistant, for the first time the iconic artic parka goes live in the spring season.

The new Rainwear range features an exclusive selection of garments in high quality, rainproof fabrics: Gore-Tex, Rainwear Poly, City Fabric and Fancy Rainwear. Continuing collaboration with GORE-TEX® gives rise to the GTX Mac, wind-resistant, highly breathable waterproof outerwear for a look that combines high-tech performance with elegant style.

Introducing Rainwear Poly, a high-tech, breathable, waterproof fabric available in two jackets: Weston Mac, a comfortable jacket with roomy pockets and detachable quilted gilet, and the classic cut Weston Trench, which features a weather-resistant membrane for typically inclement spring weather. Soft and natural, City Fabric is a three-layer waterproof and breathable material, available on various styles in the Barrow range. From a three-quarter jacket with roomy pockets to a sleek mac, from a trench coat to a hooded jacket, City Fabric is the ideal fabric for the cooler months prior to summer.

Fancy Rainwear completes the range of rain-resistant fabrics and garments – a dyed polyester microfibre with the latest generation waterproof membrane, developed and produced entirely in Italy. Breathable and comfortable, this high-tech Italian fabric guarantees ultimate protection and excellent comfort. The iconic Prescott Parka, which combines technical performance with Italian style, is one example of the fabric.

The Teton range of designs, (the Woolrich Performance label) has been expanded. In addition to the classic Teton Rudder Jacket, it now includes the new Teton Rudder Bomber in laminated Nylon with zip fastener, cuffs with adjustable buttons and a roomy, detachable hood.

To celebrate its 185 year anniversary, Woolrich is reinterpreting iconic styles from the brand’s archives, with a contemporary twist and an “Authentic” range in every collection. The classic Mountain Jacket and Railroad Vest are two examples of these, produced in Ramar Cloth, a water-repellent cotton and nylon (60/40) fabric with Teflon coating patented by the brand during the 1970s
