The 30s, 40s and 50s were decades of smart wardrobes comprised of posh layers of collared shirts, knitwear, and woolen trousers that differed in only a minor manner from the high street fashions of the times. Within the alpine sports clubs of the day, classic skiing ensembles often included an oxford shirt with cuffed sleeves which conveyed skiing’s then leisurely nature and the handsome appearance of its well-to-do enthusiasts.

Crafted of soft Italian wool flannel from Milior, the Alps & Meters Touring Oxford gets an update for fall.

THE STORY

During the early 20th century, skiing became the infatuation of gentlemen intrigued by the wonderful novelty and sliding on snow. In its transition from an efficient mode of winter transportation to exciting new recreational activity, skiers of the era, beyond a pair of leather boots and wooden skis, took little time to modify their head-to-toe wardrobes for use on-mountain.

DESIGNED BY TRADITION

Like the classic collared shirts that made the transition from the high streets of the 1950s to the slopes of mountains around the world, the Touring Flannel is a constant companion of the Gentleman Skier when traveling to and within the mountains.

Fantastic shirt, careful of the sizing

Love the fit and finish of this shirt. My only real issue with the design is that the inside of the collar could use a panel of less scratchy material. This would not be an issue if used as an overshirt--see sizing comments.

The wool/nylon blend is a great weight, and the snow-resistant panels are a great look. On the slopes, apres ski, around town, whatever. This shirt begs for a fine sipping whisky on the rocks and a roaring fire.

Awareness on the sizing: I had some challenges here, because the neck is sized so large. The shirt is really cut to be more of an overshirt, and the collar is sized to go around an inner shirt's collar. I wanted to wear as a regular shirt, so I sized down. This creates a pretty athletic or slim fit, but the arms are long enough and the collar works in medium.

For reference, I'm 6'2", 190 lbs, 43" chest and 35" waist. Large would be my usual size, but went with medium ultimately here. My dress shirt size is 16.5" x 35", and the arms on the medium were actually long enough. I will not machine wash or dry this--any shrinkage and it would be too small.

I recommend this, once adjusting for the sizing.

Excellent shirt

Love this shirt. Extremely warm and I get all kinds of complements on it every time I wear it. Fit is pretty true to the size I generally wear.

Perfect midlayer

this wool oxford is super warm, and will keep you warm under a shell on those cold skiing days. It is also stylish enough to wear out for aspre ski once you get off the mountain. The wool is very warm and sturdy and at first the wool feels harsh to bare skin, so a shirt underneath is a must at first, but over time that wool softens up.
