I don't feel this at all, looks like a total different brand to me.

Those leathers look awfully vinyl-ly.

I really like the boots. Not sure about the rest; I guess we all need to get used to the fact that there is a new creative director for WWM.

Is mcnairy considered a real designer? Seems like anything can be passed for "designer" these days.

personally, i like the line what ive seen from the line. he is using different materials and refining the fits.

i think its a nice change, albeit a little collegiate but there is nothing wrong with that.

Not a fan of most of the pieces. Too "collegiate" for my taste. However, I do like the toggle jacket in navy and burgundy(?) and I will give the line a few more seasons before throwing in the towel.

It is a drastic change. We went from hunting, fishing, workwear to ivy league elite. However, I am not surprised given McNairy's design aesthetic.

Stupid collection to be made under the WWM label. Almost looks like BoO meet J. Crew...doesn't even look like McNairy. Not really quirky at all, very boring and the WWM beanies are such a roll eyes. Also this:

has been totally lost with this collection. E: That being said, I like the black pants and shirt from the first look and I think this stuff would blend in really well with other "americana" brands. I just don't understand why McNairy couldn't step a little more outside his comfort zone to make something more relevant to the history of Woolen Mills (with Daiki, and before Daiki)

at least i wont be fighting with you bitches for the m & l pieces, although this line is likely to be more appealing to a broader group of people.

wow, not really feeling any of this stuff when compared to Suzuki's designs... someone called it right saying this looks like an entirely different brand. the parka and the plaid BD worn under the vest look alright, but the rest...

I like some of the jackets and bags, but if the pricing goes any higher I can give this stuff a miss.
