WOOLRICH® The Original Outdoor Clothing Company

Woolrich The Original Outdoor Clothing Company

As long as we are talking about cold weather clothing (see Duck Boots by LL Bean), there is another Eastern company that has been in business since 1830. The company’s  name is Woolrich. The founder, John Rich, came from England and opened up a woolen mill in Woolrich, Pennsylvania.  Woolrich has a very rich and steep tradition. Woolrich has supplied blankets for the Civil War, World War I and World War II. They are the first clothing company to make clothing for the outdoors. They designed and produced the clothing for Admiral Byrd exploration team in 1939.

One of the earliest patterns from Woolrich is the Buffalo check plaid pattern. They still make this Men’s Buffalo Shirt.
