Fall 2018

Photography by Jason Frank Rothenberg

Our latest adventure took us to Bariloche, Argentina, which borders a spectacular glacial lake in the Andes Mountains. Led by Carlos Mallmann—
the mountaineer brother of legendary chef and fire-tamer Francis—and his sons, we put our fall apparel to the test under conditions both rugged
and civilized. Tomas Mallmann, the veterinarian in the family, arranged a visit to a sheep farm and a horse stable—these animals are a mainstay
of the Andean culture. Among the highlights was the striking sight of gauchos on horseback outfitted in Best Made gear. Stay tuned for more
in this continuing series documenting the intriguing characters and locations we encountered on this extraordinary journey.
