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.

A close friend of mine asked if I would be interested in joining her for a section of the Colorado Trail. She was aiming to finish all 486 miles in about five weeks, and invited me along to join in the last week of fun: Silverton to Durango. This was her final leg of the trip, and it would allow me to experience the full force of a group of through-hikers at their prime.

Day one of the fishing trip, you’ve got your gear all packed up, fly rod by the door, and fish on your mind as you get ready to head out. And that’s when you hear it, your worst nightmare, the little pitter patter that turns into a downpour.
At our core, we believe in promoting several simple truths: Authenticity is one of those simple truths, and camping is one of the purest outdoor activities. When you camp, you experience nature. Other activities can be added on top of camping–hiking, climbing, swimming, etc–but don’t have to be. Nature alone is often sufficient.
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)
