“Our jackets and shirts are often passed down for generations and it’s so gratifying to not only receive these exceptional garments into our collection, but also to hear the stories that go with them,” said Woolrich president Nick Brayton.
Along with the garments, Woolrich is asking donors to share photos and any anecdotes or personal stories related to the garment.
Each garment returned to Woolrich will be thoroughly inspected and cleaned before being stored in the newly renovated climate-controlled archive. Woolrich will determine the age of each garment and register it into the archive along with the donor’s name and any supporting documents.
Those interested in submitting their garment to the Woolrich Archive can drop it off in person at the company’s store at 39 Boardman Drive, Woolrich, PA or ship it to the company; Woolrich, ATTN: Vintage Archives, 1 Mill St. Woolrich, PA 17779. When shipping please is sure to include a return address and any information you might have about the garment.
Since 1830, Woolrich has made clothing for Americans to do their jobs and follow their passions outdoors. Founded by John Rich on the simple idea of making the best quality woolens for area woodsmen and settlers, Woolrich is now recognized around the world as The Original Outdoor Clothing Company. Woolrich carries on the tradition of its founder by making purposeful products for people to enjoy and explore the outdoors.
