Exactly 190 years ago, Woolrich was born. 190 years is a period of time too difficult to grasp, for it is beyond what can be experienced. The buffalo check, which is a symbol of the brand, was originally developed for hunting jackets during the founding era of America, when the spirit of independence and freedom filled the air. Today, we have continued to live with the buffalo check as a representative pattern of fashion. The pattern lives on through the lives of those who continue to bear a heart of independence and freedom. The story of the Buffalo Check and Woolrich is one that has continued through to modern times and will continue as a never ending story.
