Originated in the Cowboy State in the 1960’s, Rocky Mountain Featherbed Co was a leader and innovator cold weather outerwear. It was one of the first brands to incorporate high-end leather patches and metal closures with the rugged body fabrics and designs the brand was know for producing.
In the 1980’s the brand fell out of favor and all but disappeared. As with any great brand with strong Americana roots, it was bought by a Japanese company, who relaunched the brand in 2005, staying true to the original vision of ‘rugged luxury’. (I think I might have just created a new catch phrase for ANF)
The pieces in the Fall/Winter 2010 collection are authentic, yet still relevant for today. The mixing of fabrics and color make each piece more desirable than the next. While the prices could be considered high, I feel they are worth every penny. Looking like The Fall Guy does not come cheap.
