A legend in western wear, Rockmount claims to have premiered the Western shirt with snaps and popularized the bolo tie. These days, the line has expanded into apparel, accessories, and hats for men, women, and children, but the company still works from its 1908 brick building. The family enterprise was begun in 1946 by Jack A. Weil, who regularly worked in the office until his passing at the age of 107. His prescience apparently tapped into a longstanding trend; even Hollywood celebrities regularly sport Rockmount garments. Today the historic shop in LoDo doubles as a museum of sorts – many people pop in simply to browse the walls, where photos of celebrities like Eric Clapton, Elvis Presley and Robert Redford modeling their Rockmount duds, make up the decor.
- Free Things to Do: "Combine this with a visit to the Tattered Cover Bookstore (also on this list). Both shops are in the same LoDo neighborhood, and just a two minute walk apart. Parking can be tight in LoDo, so it is best to just choose a garage and hit up a few spots at once."
- Best for Free Things to Do Because: The walls are adorned with photos of celebs rocking Rockmount shirts, including Elvis Presley and Robert Redford. It's like a free museum.
