A utility-packed field jacket, upgraded with signature Birdwell style and crafted in wool from America’s oldest mill.
As the Indian summer wanes and winds turn from offshore to onshore, we wanted to build a winter jacket that would keep the wind out and the warmth in — this winter and for seasons to come. To find the perfect fabric, we looked to one of our inspirations, Woolrich Woolen Mills, who’ve been perfecting their craft for the last 186 years. A vertically-integrated company that got its start outfitting lumberjacks in rural Pennsylvania and supplied woolen blankets for Civil War soldiers, Woolrich stands today as a peak example of the endurance and quality of American manufacturing. Chances are pretty good that your father, or even your grandfather, had one of their shirts in his camping kit.
Our Wool Sportsman Jacket delivers timeless style and all of the useful touches you’ve come to expect from Birdwell in three colors: classic Navy, Red Buffalo Plaid, and Dull Sky Buffalo Plaid. We’ve packed it with pockets, some big enough to hold even the largest iPhone Plus, and reinforced the elbows and crucial wear points in our durable SurfNyl™️ with military standard buttons like our Tactical Walk Shorts. We’re proud to offer this jacket in limited supply, which feels about right as just one will last a generation, maybe even more.
