This Is Your Après-Ski Jacket

Lambswool and leather goodness

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.
