Japanese brand Rocky Mountain Featherbed deals in some of the most immaculate classic style outerwear we've come across. Originally concieved in the 1960's in Jackson, Wyoming, the brand is most famous for their fantastic western style down vests, which are easily recognized through their hard wearing nylon body & most of all the eponymous cattle leather yoke that adorns the shoulders.
Rocky Mountain Featherbed brand dissapeared sometime during the mid 1980's & was resurrected in 2005 by a Japanese vintage collector & Rocky Mountain Featherbed fanatic. Today the brand still stays true to the original ethos, creating the highest quality, hard wearing outer wear possible using the finest materials such as water & windproof nylons, genuine American cattle leather, luxurious Polish down (known world wide for it's supreme quality), beautiful English wool & mouton sheepskins. All put together manually by a group of artisanal craftsmen in Japan.
Starting at the very top, the LDV vest is created using an all leather outer with added mouton sheepskin trims at both the collar & side pockets & finished with white mother of pearl snap buttons. As genuine a look as it is luxurious, this beautiful piece understandably holds quite a hefty price tag, but will last for generations to come!
