Old-School Skier Flair.
Ever since the famous Ice Man got frozen into an Alpine glacier 5,000 years ago, travelers over the mountain passes of Europe have grappled with the same question:
How are you supposed to dress?
Not easy. East-west valleys are sunny and dry, North-south valleysare foggy and choked with snow.
Mountain vistas that are cloudless at noon may be shrouded in chill mist by supper.
I found this answer on the Swiss side of the Gotthard Pass. This adaptable layer with a unique button placket keeps you just-right on the mountain and gets you style points at the lodge. Perfect whether you're heading uphill from Fluelen or downhill to Milan.
Alpine Henley (No. G1483). Made of heavyweight slub rugby jersey and spun from twisted double-yarn for durability, this flattering pullover has texture and old-school skier flair to spare. Vintage-inspired tape-hole buttons, like those found on expedition parkas, are virtually indestructible - and give this Henley extra interest as an over- or under layer. Ribbed cuffs and flat hem. 100% cotton. Imported.
