Mark McNairy is taking the creative reigns over at Woolrich Woolen Mills. Mr. McNairy, who is best known for his work at J. Press, and of course his own New Amsterdam collection, replaces Daiki Suzuki as creative director for the brand. His personal take on the line looks to pull from some WWM’s 50’s and 60’s sportwear collections.
“It’s not going to be red-and-black buffalo check — that I can tell you,” McNairy said. “I think I’ll end up adding a military aspect and some Ivy League. In the late Fifties and early Sixties, Woolrich had a sportswear collection that wasn’t necessarily geared for the outdoors and was more about the piece goods like Ivy League styles, duffle coats and things like that. It’s going to be a mixture of the things I love.”
Here at Selectism, we’re very excited to see what Mr. McNairy has in store for the Woolrich Woolen Mills collection. Congratulations.
