Waxed Garment

The “wrinkling" of waxed cotton garment happens when the (often new) fabric is bent, folded, worn, etc. Over time this happens less and less. In fact it is not the fabric wrinkling but the wax that leaves these lines at high spots. It is one of the defining characteristics of the product. Like denim, it will break in, develop patina and become very distinctive to the owner.

Rockmount Paisley Shirts

Not for the faint hearted, a Paisley shirt is the fashion equivalent of a kick start only Harley: You have to really want it.
It’s clear however that the dudes at Rockmount know what they’re doing. The relaxed cut, the double seams, the iconic „Diamond Snap“ snap fasteners, the sawtooth pockets, the 100% cotton, the machine washable-ness. And because it says „Rockmount“ on the label, it means they’re made in the U.S.A.
Even though “Papa” Jack Weil was having the cowboy and rancher next door in mind when he designed his shirts, they were so novel and laid back that the name Rockmount and the quality that came with it became known quickly outside the West. Country singers, pop stars and Hollywood icons didn’t have to think twice when they went for a piece of the endless Rockmount Ranch Wear Collection.
Rockmount shirts are made in the U.S.A.. That makes it easy for Papa Jack Weil’s family to regularly introduce new styles and models with the latest fabrics. We now have part of the vast Rockmount collection in our catalog. You can recognize them from their typical “Diamond Snap” snap fasteners, the sawtooth pockets and of course from the rock solid Rockmount Made in U.S.A. quality.
Oh yeah, paisley. A classic of patterned fabrics, favourite of the Summer of Love. Paisley is built up from semicolon-like „leaves“, arranged in the craziest patterns and colours. The pilgrimage of this pattern to the Rockmount collection is as full of unexpected twists and bends as your favourite Pacific Coast road. Initially devised in Persia, it made its way across India and the British Empire to the Scottish fabric making town of, wait for it: Paisley!
