That Trudy, she's one cool customer. Literally cool.
She would never tell you which is just one of the reasons she's cool. She presides over her little boutique nestled on the plaza in Old Town Alburqueque just like Gertrude Stein presided over her salon in Paris. Like Gertrude, she is an inspiring host and draws all sorts of interesting people - the rich and famous, musicians, and artists - but then again, Trudy would never tell you, which is why they come.

A few years back Trudy called and asked if we would make a custom jacket for "some guy in a band." He had seen one of our scout jackets in her shop and wanted a "guy version." We weren't busy at the time, so we were happy to accommodate. Trudy sent us his measurements, and we made up a jacket and sent it to her.

Things got busy and time passed. Years later when I asked Trudy about the jacket and inquired who the "guy" was, she smiled coyly at me and said,

"I can't remember."

Collection after collection, we ask ourselves, “How does Cheryl come up with this stuff?” In the case of the Flora & Fauna print, it’s simpler than you might imagine.

Double D Ranch has created a lot of memorable pieces over the years, but nothing seems to have quite the lifespan – the timelessness, the longevity, the staying power – of a DDR jacket.
