Woolrich Woolen Mills A/W11
Published: 2011-11-08 15:00:00 Tags: Menswear
All of you whom are already familiar with the Woolrich ”Made-In-USA” line Woolen Mills probably know by now that this AW11 collection has been made by a new designer. Replacing mr Daiki Suzuki, one of the most priced designers of our days who designed Woolen Mills since the birth of the line in 2005, wouldn’t seem like an easy job.
Enter, mr Mark McNairy.
Mark, who is a former creative director for J. Press and also run his own line of Northamton made shoes, Red Brick Sole and the clothing line New Amsterdam, has always been inspired by Military clothing, classic American Sportswear and Ivy League style, while the work of Daiki is all about american outdoor history. Mountain Parkas, Fishing Vests and Hunting flannel shirts was key pieces in every Woolen Mills collection and the style was always very retro inspired with a washed and wrinkled feel. So, in order for Mark to take over the job he didn’t just add something new, he totally flipped the coin.
The A/W11 collection from Woolrich Woolen Mills is crispy american clothing history with a twist. Heavy fleece sweat pants, checkered flannels, chambray shirts, a reversible car coat with herringbone tweed on one side and water repellent cotton on the other are just a few examples of the great products available and together with Daiki, Mark has also made a special edition of the classic arctic parka from Woolrich called "the 4 hand parka". We hope you like this collection as much as we do.

The Bench - Robert Levine
In November Robert Levine will turn 21. Robert, who originates from New York, has chosen to spend his last four months as a 20-year-old kid in Stockholm. One can wonder why, when all that Stockholmers around the same age want to do is to go and live in New York for a while, the place to be, where it all happens! One can only assume…
Neighborhood & WTAPS
With a history that extends almost as long as Nitty Gritty’s, The two Japanese brands Neighborhood and WTAPS have been in the top segment of streetwear ever since they saw the light of day in the mid 90’s. Tetsu Nishiyama, or TET as his signature, became a pioneer of Tokyo’s young and vibrant Harajuku districts fashion scene when he started a few brands in the early 90’s. About the same time, motorcycle enthusiast Shinsuke Takizawa wanted to bring about a brand that could express the lifestyle that Shinsuke and his friends were devoted to.

This is Paulina Liffner von Sydow, the Swedish bag- and accessory designer that in a very short time has become the favourite among a number of style icons in Stockholm. When she came by the Nitty Gritty head office the other day to show her next collection for our buying team, we kindly asked her to strike a pose at `The Bench´ for us. Because in our concerns, she´s just as stylish as the fashionable crowd that so highly appreciate her bags.
The Bench - Oscar Richt
If you are getting away with a look that is some kind of a cross over between 70´s porn star and Jude Laws character Dickie Greenleaf from The Talented Mr Ripley, you definitely got some sense of style.
