JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. (PRWEB) September 19, 2011
Mountain Khakis®, a leading mountain-inspired lifestyle apparel brand based out of Jackson Hole, Wyo., expands into a head-to-toe lifestyle collection this fall with a men’s fashion line of jackets, sweaters and shirts. The brand, first launched eight years ago as an “exclusively pants” collection through outdoor specialty stores nationwide, stays dedicated to its Americana styling with its new Mountain Khakis Original MountainTops collection that includes the same craftmanship, attention to detail and rugged detailing for which the brand’s pants are known.
“With this new collection, Mountain Khakis now provides men a true lifestyle offering that takes you from the office to the trail—and beyond,” said Noah Robertson, Mountain Khakis Co-Founder and Director of Product Development & Design. “The quality and detail are tremendous, combining rugged styling with true performance features.”
A hallmark style within the collection is the Teton Flannel Shirt that features an heirloom-quality blend of style and function. The flannel is finished with a proprietary Lava Wash™ process for a slightly distressed look and buttery-soft feel. Chevron snap chest pockets and antique-silver buttons reflect the brand’s western roots.
The Old Faithful Sweater is both versatile and stylish with superb detailing that easily transitions from casual weekend to city polish. The unique 12.8 oz heathered sweater-knit polyester blend has a brushed interior for next-to-skin softness. Adjustable snap cuffs give it a jacket feel, and two-zip handwarmer pockets and grosgrain-reinforced interior windflap add performance features to this stylish piece.
A perfect layering companion is the new Trapper Henley, said to be the shirt that defined the west. The Mountain Khakis Trapper Henley combines all-natural cotton with superfine merino wool for the ideal, year-round weight. Easily worn on its own, with T-shirt or layered under a sweater or flannel for chilly temperatures.
With the Stagecoach Jacket, Mountain Khakis adds its own touch to the classic canvas jacket, including their 10.4oz proprietary cotton canvas, triple-stitched seams and iconic, MK-angled hand pockets. Details everywhere - from nylon-lined sleeves (easy on/off) to the hidden zip-pocket compartments, side-panel gussets - make this a perfect three-season companion.
“The new Original MountainTops collection is very consistent with what Mountain Khakis is as a brand,” said Robertson. “There is tremendous attention to detail in every aspect of the collection, from the choice of fabrics down to the selection of buttons and trims. The new Mountain Khakis Original MountainTops collection completes our head-to-toe assortment for guys who aspire to be a part of the great outdoors – whether they’re on the trail or in the office,” said Robertson.
The new Mountain Khakis Original MountainTops collection will retail from $54.95 for the Trapper Henley to $154.95 for the Stagecoach Jacket. Product descriptions and pricing for the complete collection can be found at http://www.mountainkhakis.com/products/men.
Robertson recommends pairing the new Mountain Khakis Original MountainTops with any of MK’s best-selling pants, including the ever-reliable Original Mountain Pant, the quick-dry UV 50+ MK Granite Creek Convertibles or the go-anywhere MK Teton Twills.
