I am a huge fan of skiing. Growing up in the greater Boston area, not far from the White Mountain region of New Hampshire, my parents enrolled me in ski school at the age of 6. Right from the start I fell in love with the sport. I remember we would go skiing on Saturday evenings as a family: my dad, mom and three sisters. It was the coolest experience to hit the slopes, brightly lit with huge lighting cascading down from the top of the mountain. We would race down the trails, full speed ahead…and of course without any fear, lol!
Fast forward to living in New York City and keeping super busy as Creative Director of T-Christopher, I still make it a point to find the time to hit the slopes now and then. An annual trip to Colorado offers some of the best skiing in the US! As an adult, the activity of skiing takes on a whole new meaning with the fun activities of “Aprés Ski”...from happy hours at the base of the mountain, to group dinners with great friends, and grabbing a few beers at a local pub or brewery to close out the night. Then repeat again the next day!
So, maybe you’ve got the skiing part down, but you’re clueless on ski attire? Here are a few of my favorite T-Christopher items that will take your aprés ski clothing to the next level!
The T-Christopher St. Mortiz is the perfect aprés ski sweater - made from Merino Wool, this sweater has a double zipper for a relaxed smart look. The inspiration behind the sweater was vintage ski with a sporty look, emphasized by a fun color-blocked front panel stripe, which is sure to be an eye catcher.
The Chamonix Pant is a smartly tailored trouser with fine details that include our signature orange Lampo Italian zipper. These pants are super soft and crafted from a stretch knit blend - they have the feel of your softest pair of sweatpants, but with a much smarter look. These incredibly comfortable mens pants move with the body, always providing an easy fit.
Our Aspen Turtleneck Sweater is simply chic - its patterned design makes for smart aprés ski wear when paired with our Chamonix stretch pant. The perfect outfit for lounging at the lodge, or dinner and drinks after hitting the slopes for the day. Pick up a color block turtleneck sweater (the other version) for greater wardrobe versatility. Two looks in one!
The East Side Jogger was designed with the complete comfort of a pair of sweatpants, but tailored to have a refined fit and look that can be easily worn for a fun night out on the town. If you have the energy for a night of dancing after the slopes, the East Side will work perfectly for you. Made from Italian fabric with a “blistered texture” that incorporates our signature orange zipper, this cool jogger is elevated to the next level and beyond - we’re sure you’ll love them.
I hope this gives you inspiration and makes your aprés ski attire even more fashionable. See you on the slopes!
