Also in Cowboy news, Adam Kimmel's Spring 2010 collection was inspired by champion bullrider Rocky McDonald, as well as photographer Jim Krantz's images (best known as the creator of the Marlboro Man campaigns).

On closer inspection, we see more fashionable details like reversible jackets and luxurious fabrics.
