Never heard of 'woolwich woolen mills'.

http://www.woolrichwoolenmillsproduction.com/ is a line of woolrich which I think is "work wear" as opposed to arctic wear as far as I am aware.

Its all part of the same company mate, they have 3 different ranges as far as im aware, woolen mills which is based not only on the function of the clothing but how it looks, obviously been a big rise in decent workwear clothing and its top of the range, then theres the woolrich brand and the woolrich elite tactical brand which concentrates on the technical/quality side of outdoor wear and is more for deer hunting

i always thought the woolen mills range didnt differ much from woolrich but was aimed more at the fashion side aswell, available to all who wanted anything up to a walk in the park, functionality and style

That Woolrich is not the same as Woolrich Woolen Mills.
WWM is the one currently being "curated" by Daiki Suzuki (EG).

In a nutshell then, the one stocked by my wardrobe isnt as good as the one stocked by the bureau? Suppose the prices reflect this.

its all american mate, all the branches of woolrich are made in usa

ulster theres no difference quality wise between them but imo the woolen mills ranges are more fashion designed, im sure woolen mills has only been round a couple of years and this range is a better fitting take on the workwear woolrich produce

It's not difficult to find the information just by Googling - Woolrich Woolen Mills is a brand within the Woolrich stable which is designed by Daiki Suzuki of Engineered Garments, who is Japanese but has lived in America for 18 years.

Tried this on in america, was thinking of buying until I saw the price. I'd say even the stuff my-wardrobe have is fairly pricey…

woolrich is a great brand, they are working on a relaunch i think as they are celebrating 180 years soon.

Check out these images on their SS10, http://hypebeast.com/2009/12/woolrich-woolen-mills-2010-springsummer-collection/

the blue parka looks pretty good
