Cannabis cultural events usually attract a laid back crowd that is similarly leisurely dressed. Before reaching for the “fancy” t-shirt, jeans or hat to wear to one of the marijuana themed events near you, earn some cannabis style street cred and wear one of these great looks from the best of Colorado fashion instead.

Rockmount Ranch Wear, 1626 Wazee St., Denver, CO, 80202
At every event in Denver, somebody will show up in a cowboy shirt.
Rockmount Ranch Wear defines fashion in Colorado. The original snap button shirt is a classic look as well as comfortable and dressy.
Rockmount clothing began as dress wear for notoriously independent cowboys. It’s not just clothing designed for cowboys, the spirit of independence and old-west American self-determination run throughout the company.
Jack Weil, the founder of this third-generation family company, worked as company CEO until he retired at age 107. Nowadays, Rockmount shirts are worn by rock and country musicians (like Bob Dylan!) and many artists stop in the historic downtown Denver shop during tour stops.
If you also have a fiercely independent spirit, and want to dress like a stylish musician, wear a Rockmount shirt.
