$140.00

Devised by the well-to-do sportsmen of the 19th and 20th centuries as an alternative to the cumbersome and reserved casual wardrobes worn in early recreational environments of the era, the Polo Shirt, as it came be called, offered users the first series of garment innovations dedicated solely to sports related activities. Short sleeve length and softer jersey knits of pique cotton delivered enhanced comfort while the refinement of its signature classic collar, when upturned, protected the neck from the sun while still adhering to norms of upper crust dress code required of the gentlemen of the day.

Perhaps the most traditional piece of sport equipment ever created, the Polo shirt has been a staple of the Gentleman Skier’s wardrobe since the late 1800s where its presence migrated to the mountains from the posh courts of exclusive tennis clubs and the green grass of private polo grounds. A new luxury sportswear essential emblazoned with iconic Land Rover U.S. Alpine Ski Team leather logo on its left sleeve, Alps & Meters’ Touring Polo U.S. Ski Team draws upon the original innovative intentions of the original polos of the past while offering Land Rover U.S. Alpine Ski Team athletes, supporters, and enthusiasts a contemporary wardrobe outlet by which to express their passion for American alpine excellence.
