For many, the action after a day of action on the slopes is as anticipated event as the day on the slopes itself. The après ski hour is as much a part of the experience of a Winter day spent mountainside as the first run on fresh virgin powder. But not everybody makes the post slope ritual look as effortlessly cool as those gathered around the table near the fireplace, or slope side by the fire pit, laughing & drinking without what appears to be not a care in the world… Don’t worry… we’re as jealous of those people as you are!
As much a key to the après action as the company & conversation is the fashion. The après ski was once the domain of the wealthy jet-set crowd hailing from the Swiss Alps or the Dolomites; however, today, gone on the well healed super-models being courted by their über wealthy, much older suitors & in are the young, co-eds wearing baggy clothing borne from workwear & snowboard parks.
One company, California Cowboy took it upon themselves to design the ultimate après ensemble that provides every bit of the stylistic ease of the oversized flannel shirt that is the mainstay of today’s young boarder (or twin tip skier!), but is packed with some serious functionality the likes of which we’ve never seen before.
The company’s High Sierra Flannel Shirt, no first glance, looked like it was grabbed from dad’s closet as the wearer headed out the door in the AM, but upon closer inspection, details like super soft Portuguese Flannel fabrication, lining made of poly-tencel-spandex with thermal fill, a reinforced bottle pocket, a hidden seltzer can pocket, a zippered dry pocket to protect the wearer’s phone, a loop on which to hook sunglasses, an interior loop for gloves, a secret pen pocket & each is shipped with a Beer Koozie, Bottle Opener, as well as a Stack of Conversation Stopper Cards.
