Woolrich Woolen Mills Fall/Winter 2013

Here is a look at the new fall/winter 2013 presentation from Woolrich Woolen Mills. Mark McNairy is in the drivers seat for this one, literally and figuratively, as he is not only the head designer but the collections inspiration is that of an early car drivers look. The items and fabrics have inspirations pulled from the Woolrich archives themselves, which I am sure is vast to say the least. I like Mark’s take on things here, never too serious but still remaining wearable, for the most part. I dig that blanket poncho and the Donegal window pain suit, and I never like suits (images: Style.com).

Woolrich Wollen Mills Spring/Summer 2012

With Piti Uomo all wrapped up we now get to see full previews of the collections that were showcased. Here is a look at the spring/summer 2012 Woolrich Woolen Mills collection, which is Mark McNairy’s second run at the line since he took it over from Daiki Suzuki for the f/w ’11 collection. This line sees cues from McNairy’s J.Press ‘Ivy’ background, with prep styles mixed with outdoors/safari stylings. I can’t get down with the headwear at all but the chinos, blazers and outerwear are looking great. I am still much more into the Suzuki designed WWM collections but I trust that McNairy will keep things moving in the right direction. Keep reading for the full looks…

Woolrich Woolen Mills Fall/Winter 2011

SlamX just offered up this low-res preview of Mark McNairy’s premier collection at the helm of Woolrich Woolen Mills. With inspiration drawing from a bevy of places, McNairy’s vision for the label definitely seems a bit more grandiose than Daiki Suzuki’s, who ended his design tenure with this subdued collection. As much as I’ve always admired Suzuki’s reeled-in aesthetic, I can definitely appreciate where McNairy is taking the WWM, with numerous standouts in this collection such as the vest and hoodie featured above, as well as the duffel coats, trousers, and footwear, all of which are distinctive. My only query is this: rolled cuffs and no socks for fall/winter? Really? Click through for the rest.

Woolrich Woolen Mills S/S 2011

Here is a look at the Woolrich Woolen Mills spring/summer 2011 collection, the last collection to be designed by Daiki Suzuki of Engineered Garments. The collection features classic 70′s era mountaineering styles, keeping it rather simple and clean. This is easily the most toned down collection seen from Suzuki on his departure from the line. I especially like the color palette with a base of neutral grays and tans paired with bold primary colors such as reds, greens, blues and yellows. It was great watching Daiki work with the line but now it will be interesting to see what Mr. McNairy puts forward. Keep reading for the full looks…

Mark McNairy for Spiewak

Mark McNairy has been busy as of late with collaborations galore, and here is the next addition to his resume, a collaboration with Spiewak. This one is a real hit for me as I love Spiewak jackets, I have a few in my winter jacket rotation, a Pea Coat, a Parka, and a great quilted camo joint. Mr. McNairy has taken three staples, the N3B snorkel parka, Air Force CWU45 and Marine Corp Vietnam G8WEP flight jacket and added his own personal touches. I am just happy to see someone join forces with the Spiewak for a great looking collaboration.

Woolrich Woolen Mills Spring/Summer 2011 Preview

Debuting at the Milan shows this week, Woolrich Woolen Mills spring/summer 2011 line marks the end of head designer Daiki Suzuki’s run with the label. Inspired by late 70′s mountaineering, this collection consists of simple cuts and quality materials, with the solid colour palate and cohesive styling that we’ve come to expect from WWM. It will be very interesting to see what direction the label goes in once Mark McNairy takes over for fall 2011, as through his work with WWM Suzuki has left an indelible mark on contemporary menswear… more preview shots after the jump.
