Who We Are
Inside us all exists an adventurous soul - a wild heart that is called from nature to live authentically and free from modern society. For many outdoor and mountain enthusiasts pure freedom and rugged adventure has become a way of life. Mountain Khakis was developed specifically for this lifestyle.
What started as a casual conversation at the Shady Lady Saloon in Jackson Hole, WY has become a top performing mountain-inspired lifestyle brand. Established in 2003, Mountain Khakis quickly became a staple in the wardrobe of everyone from ranch hands to golf pros, those who travel by jet, as well as those who travel by thumb.

I’ve experience fear. I’ve had a grizzly bear run straight at me in Alaska. I’ve triggered avalanches backcountry skiing. I’ve been lost in the wilderness for multiple days in driving sleet and soaked to the core. I’ve been rag-dolled alongside my snowmobile at 80 mph. But, the fear and adrenaline that overcame me when I nodded my head in the chute for the first time, my hand cinched tight onto the back of a pissed off 1500-pound bull, was a level of fear I had not yet experienced.

Hidden within the Umpqua national forest lays Tokettee Falls. One of Oregon’s many gems, this waterfall is a must stop destination for avid outdoorsmen and waterfall enthusiasts.
Glamour and camping: two words that don’t belong together are now wedded into an entire industry. If your idea of camping is sleeping in a pup tent and eating pork and beans right out of the can, you are not a candidate for glamping. If, on the other hand, you want your beans on fine china, then you are going to pay for it and pay for it and pay for it.
They tell us about the crazy places they take their MKs and the even crazier things they do wearing them (and frankly, it makes us a little envious sitting here at our desks)
