MCNAIRY EXITS WOOLRICH: Woolrich Woolen Mills is parting ways with designer Mark McNairy after five seasons. This fall will be the final season designed by McNairy and the label will go on hiatus for at least one season starting next spring. Woolrich Woolen Mills is the top-end designer collection produced under license by Italy’s WP Lavori in Corso, which will continue to market the Woolrich John Rich & Bros. contemporary collection. Woolrich Woolen Mills is carried in the U.S. by Bloomingdale’s, Union Made and Smith + Butler. McNairy designs his own men’s label as well as a line for Billionaire Boys Club.
