Rockmount Ranch Wear was started in Denver by Jack Weil in 1946. Over the years the company has played a leading role in the development of Western wear, as it was the first company to put snaps on Western shirts and the first to commercially produce bolo ties. The company is still family owned and 106 year old Weil is still the company’s CEO. He is thought to be the country’s oldest working CEO.
“The West is not a place, it is a state of mind.” Jack Weil
