The right jacket is both your badge of honor and your armor.
As the Indian summer wanes and winds turn from offshore to onshore, we wanted to build the one winter jacket that would keep the wind out and the warmth in, while also reflecting your commitment to investing in quality and timeless style. This winter and for all the seasons to come.
With the same attention paid to sourcing our proprietary SurfNyl and 4-way Surf Stretch boardshort fabrics, we went to the best mill in America with a heritage that is a quality North star for all of us at Birdwell. Serving men at work and sport since 1830, Woolrich Woolen Mills is the oldest continuously operating vertical woolen mill in America and got its start by outfitting lumber jacks with rugged, purpose built apparel.
We knew we needed to respect this amazing fabric by adding the useful touches that you’ve come to expect from Birdwell. Pocket-plenty, SurfNyl-reinforced elbows and at all steps points, mil-spec buttons, and like our Tactical Walkshorts, a pocket big enough and safe enough to hold your passport or phone, even the largest iPhone 6 and 7 Plus.
We’re proud to offer this new jacket in limited supply, based on our ability to secure the best wool, from the best mill in America.
