Red &Black Woolrich

Wondering how many guys are still clinging to the old red and black Woolrich?I still wear it with an orange vest.Remember starting out hunting and thats all I wore with out the orange vest.Do remember wearing a orange hat.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

Re: Red &Black Woolrich

Many years ago, my ex had bought me a reversible blaze orange and red & black Woolrich coat. I wore that for many years and it was a great coat. Sadly, during a divorce I stored some of my belongings at our family's cabin at Lake Nuangola and a mouse or two decided to chew their way into the box and through my coat. Guess they loved the wool, because it looked like swiss cheese.
