Papa Jack

Growing up in Northeast Louisiana, western shirts were reserved for wildcatters and cotton field workers, but when I moved to New York (of all places) in 2000, I discovered the style and comfort of the snap western for myself and have been wearing them ever since. Sadly, last Wednesday, the king of "cowboy" style - Jack A. Weil, founder and CEO of Rockmount Ranch Wear - succumbed to old age. He was 107. RIP Papa Jack:

A friend just forwarded me your blog. Glad to see someone else giving Papa his due respect. A legend has left us and he will be sorely missed.
