Rocky Mountain Featherbed 6 Month Vest

01

Images

—01. 100% Nylon Taffeta Exterior.
—02. Down Fill.

Words

While this might not look like the usual style associated with the down vest legends, Rocky Mountain Featherbed, the 6 Month Vest features their usual hallmarks: down fill and handsome styling. This modern take on a workwear staple is the perfect addition to beef up a jacket that needs a little help keeping out the cold.

Rocky Mountain Featherbed Corduroy Christy Vest

—01. Made in Japan.

Words

While the price may be prohibitive for most, the Christy Vest by Rocky Mountain Featherbed is probably one of the best down filled vests on the market. That is to say, you may never need to buy another, which makes that price a little more reasonable. Plus, they are still highly referential to the original Rocky Mountain Featherbed vests of the '60s and '70s; with a leather shoulder yoke and western details.

Spring Colour from Loftman Coop Umeda

—01. Sassafras and Patagonia.

Words

It's always a little disorientating to see the first splashes of colour, as the spring collections begin to arrive. Eventually though, those feelings give way to excitement and the realization that warmer climates and brighter clothes are not too far away. Loftman have done an excellent job styling together some of these brighter spring items alongside more muted autumn tones, as a lead-in to the season ahead.

Rocky Mountain Featherbed at Silver and Gold

01

Info

—01. Khaki, Olive, Black.

Words

You could quite easily write about something new at Silver & Gold every week. In fact; I pretty much do. However, when the subject matter contains both great product and interesting presentation, what's to dislike? That it's not from a store based in the US maybe, or perhaps that it's yet another vest I'm posting, while still not sure if I'm ready to change the habit of a short lifetime, and make the leap of purchase myself. Those two reasons aside, the Military Down Vest from Rocky Mountain looks like a pretty solid addition to anyone's winter wardrobe. Whether you track it down and make the purchase from home, or abroad.

Sale Report: Present

01

Words

The sales are definitely on and in full force in most shops around the world. On one hand, I don't like to see it, and definitely not too early as it hurts the industry, the brands and the retailers. On the other hand, I am a consumer and it is great to get a good deal. Lots of shops have heavily discounted merchandise, but Present has some of the best items in decent size runs that I've seen. These are a couple of items I've been eying up this fall, but there are many more to be found.

Rocky Mountain Featherbed Vests

—01. Down vests with leather yoke.

Words

Rocky Mountain Featherbed has made a strong case for the best quality down vests on the market. With a variety of interesting fabrics, fine leathers and nice construction, the brand has made the transition from Japan to the western world pretty well it seems. While the designs are a little too much for me, they do look great and the blanket wool looks particularly interesting. I personally would opt for something a little more simple like those by Mt. Rainier Design, but there is no denying that there is something appealing about these winter pieces.
