Woolrich has been synonymous with quality outdoor clothing for over 180 years. Founded in 1830 by John Rich and Daniel McCormick, Woolrich is the oldest manufacturer of outdoor wear in the USA.
The Woolrich hunting coat originated in the 1800s and is still as popular today. The rugged shell helps ward off the fiercest weather. It's not only warm, but it sheds water, and the tight weave keeps out the cold. Made in USA. The label dates this garment to approx the 1970s as this is when the more abstract line drawing of the sheep was introduced with squared off ears on a white base.
Used and in great vintage condition with general signs of wear throughout. There are some marks to the lining and some small holes around the back neck label. Some paint chipped off the bottom pocket popper. Please see all images.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
