Since it’s still ski weather, let’s talk ski jackets.
Powder-skirted, heat-tech-ified, neon and nylon ski jackets.
They do the job on the slopes.
Problem is, they’re an eyesore just about everywhere else.
Challenging that assumption: Alps & Meters, makers of fine leather and lambswool ski gear for either the slopes or a little après fun, available now.
At launch, the highlight from these Boston-based “tailors of alpine sport” is, undoubtedly, their Shawl Collar Jacket.
A mix of lambswool, full-grain leatherwork and waterproof tech, it’s a looker.
And it’s got all that technical jazz covered, too: a shawl collar for wind protection, water-repellent coating, internal fitted hand cuffs, draw-cord waist, side vents and waterproof utility pockets.
Available in navy, forest green and grey-black, the Shawl is the only jacket you need to pack for your next ski trip.
As our style editor noted: “Forget the mountain — I’d wear the f--- out of that jacket on the street.”
Hey, it won’t be ski season forever.
Nota bene: Speaking of end of ski season, A&M is currently offering free expedited shipping.
