Woolrich is currently accepting submissions of vintage Woolrich garments to be included in its Archive. Woolrich is looking for garments produced before the 1990’s that were made in the United States by the company. The company houses a large representation of garments and blankets it has produced in the nearly two centuries the company has been in operation and is looking to grow that collection.
“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 be sure to include a return address and any information you might have about the garment.
