Designed by Marly Bird for the Rocky Mountain Collection from Bijou Basin Ranch.
For the days you need a little swing in your step. The strategically placed stripes on the front of the vest elongates and draws the eyes down the body. This visually appealing garment has all the action in the front and simple Stockinette and solid color in the back.
