This is not your basic run-of-the-mill Fall.Winter 2017 collection from Mountain Khakis.
For followers of the Mountain Khakis (MK) label, the collection is true to the brand. Mountain Khakis is a steward of the bottoms business in the outdoor and apparel active lifestyle industry. MK was founded with the Original Mountain Pant and continues to expand and innovate the category with this seasons Fall.Winter collection.
This season also marks a milestone in the brand’s history – the Original Mountain Pant, Alpine Utility Pant and Original Field Pant are now 100 percent organic cotton. All other properties of their proprietary two-ply 10.4oz cotton canvas remain the same. This is another step in MK’s commitment to working with sustainable textiles without sacrificing quality. MK is well on the way to becoming B Corp-certified by 2020.
A new style for the season is the 307 Jean (classic and slim tailored fits) constructed of 10.3oz | 99 percent organic denim | one percent Lycra. A program MK believes sets them apart in the outdoor space.
The women’s Camber 105 Pant is a new intro influenced by the success MK has seen with the men’s Camber 105 Pant program. Made with 8oz | 98 percent cotton | 2 percent Spandex Twill, MK now offers women an outdoor pant for everyday wear.
Finally, the men’s and women’s Cody Pants have quickly become a new MK favorite – featuring sleek styling, a slim fit and performance stretch fabric.
The men’s Outlaw Down Jacket, (pictured above), and Vest received early attention for ‘MK DNA’ elements – featuring British Millerain washable, waxed canvas with DWR finish and lined with responsibly-sourced 650-fill goose down.
The Fourteener Fleece Jacket, (pictured left), is a new fall staple featuring a heavy-pile shearling exterior reinforced with MK Camber stretch canvas, and lined with a wind-resistant taffeta.
Another standout is the Sublette Shirt, which demonstrates MK’s commitment to comfort with a soft double-sided fabrication (a gingham check interior with plaid exterior), named after the first governor of Wyoming.
For women, the Ooh La La Down Jacket and Vest also feature responsibly-sourced 650-fill goose down with featherweight, recycled ripstop and DWR finish.
