As Fall and Winter approaches, gearing up in style with some products from Mountain Khakis is just what the doctor, cowboy, or mountain man ordered. While Mountain Khakis started out making tough, durable khakis for men, they have expanded their line to include both men’s and women’s tops and bottoms which I feel has been a great move for the company.
Mountain Khakis as a Brand
I have been following Mountain Khakis for about 4-5 years now and I have to admit, it has been exciting to watch this brand grow. The company has carved out a niche that really hasn’t been filled yet in my mind, the niche being comfortable mountain lifestyle . Having worn a number of Mountain Khaki’s products over the years, I can attest to the products being durable, high quality, and great fitting.
Mountain Khakis Old Faithful Sweater Style
The Mountain Khakis Old Faithful Sweater is a zip up sweater that perfect for a night out on the town, hanging out with friends enjoying your favorite craft brew with friends, or everyday use to keep warm in the colder months. To date, I’ve worn this sweater a few dozen times in temperatures ranging between 30-60 degrees Fahrenheit and I find it to provide enough warmth to keep me comfortable, but I haven’t really overheated in this sweater like some other sweaters on the market. If by chance you end up getting a little too hot in the Old Faithful Sweater, all you need to do is unzip it either a little or all the way. To set this sweater apart from other full zip sweaters, Mountain Khakis added a few style features worth noting. Most notable is are the 2 chest button pockets. These pockets don’t hold a lot of function because if you put anything in them, it might make you look like you have man boobs. Second, the Mountain Khakis Old Faithful Sweater has two zippered pockets on the side of the sweater. The pockets are big enough to fit a larger phone like an iPhone 5 or Galaxy 4, a wallet, keys, and more.
Along the cuffs of the sweater, the designers at Mountain Khakis added snaps in case you want to roll your sleeves up, but I find the cuffs in general provide nice styling. I tested out the Navy sweater and found that it goes well with both jeans and khakis. There are a number of different colors available in the Mountain Khakis Old Faithful Sweater, so no matter your person style there should be a color for you.
The fit of the Mountain Khakis Old Faithful Sweater is generous when it comes to sizing. I am generally a size medium in today’s sizing and found this sweater to fit nicely, but I would not want it to fit any bigger. I am 6’0 tall and 173lbs and found the sweater to have ample room in the mid section, so if you’re a little bigger around the belly you probably don’t need to size up. The Mountain Khakis website says this sweater has an athletic cut which I feel is a little true, but not completely.
If you’re looking to add a little style to your cold weather wardrobe, the Mountain Khakis Old Faithful is an excellent option. As mentioned above, Mountain Khakis as a brand is a fast growing brand and they are growing the right way, making great products.
