THE STORY

The art of knitting has been embraced by cultures for centuries. Requiring only needle and yarn, nomadic peoples embraced knitwear as an efficient, convenient, and traditional method of making passed along from one generation to the next. Offering protective comfort, Nordic peoples developed a preference for knitwear during an era when skiing was considered solely as a means of travel and transportation often focused upon the trade of goods from one village to the next.

To this day alpine sport draws travelers to all parts of the globe, and it is in this adventurous spirit that Alps & Meters offers the Touring Knit. Enabling mountain mobility, designed with fine Italian yarns, the Touring Knit is an evergreen style providing maximum comfort for the Gentleman Skier seeking the solace of the mountains throughout the seasonal transitions from Autumn, Winter, and Spring.

Perfect mid layer!

Comfortable material and great fit! It’s warm enough for 40 or 50 degrees if it’s not too windy and you’re active, but also makes a great mid layer if you need more warmth!! Nice design as well!

Light weight warm classy style

This sweater is super lightweight, and is great as a base layer under a jacket for colder days, or you can wear it over the oxford shirt for a more dressy look when out in about off the slopes.
