Women's Slalom Knit - Blue Surf / L is backordered and will ship as soon as it is back in stock.

Although better known for their glamour and elegance off-piste, the mid-20th century icons of winter royalty were highly committed skiers with a true passion for the mountains. A look back at the Winter Olympic Games and training sessions of that time will reveal a world of varied and stylish sweaters worn by the world's best alpine athletes.

The Alps & Meters Slalom Knit seeks to evoke the passion, and downhill expertise possessed by these female alpine sport pioneers. Personalities such Penny Pitou, Andrea Mead Lawrence, and Gretchen Kunigk Fraser possessed the rare combination of flair, attitude, and alpine skill which demanded unique sportswear of similar measure. Composed of equal parts personality, elegance, and self-expression while offering form fitting characteristics of comfort, Alps & Meters’ Slalom Knit is a long forgotten staple of the winter sportswomen’s wardrobe. Offering protective yarns and a nostalgic graphic presentation so as to be recognized by spectators from afar, this properly knitted piece conveys the story of alpine sports’ first female acing personalities, their passion for skiing, and their highly fashionable taste on and off the mountain.

Returns are difficult

The sweater was okay but not worth the money. Didn't feel like 100% wool but a wool blend. They make you use USPS to return any items that aren't wanted which is NOT convenient. USPS won't allow you to bring in the emailed return document and print it there like FedEx or UPS. Can't say I'll order online again.

The leather label will discolor your pretty sweater

It’s a classy, beautiful sweater. It can be hand washes in cold water, but he leather label securely attached on the back of the sweater, can not get wet or will stain the garment. There is no way to remove the label without getting a two holes in the sweater where the rivets punch the material. How insane is that? If you can live with a stain on the back it’s a perfect sweater.

Absolutely Gorgeous and So Warm!

I almost never do reviews, but this sweater deserves it. Wow what a beautiful garment! Almost too nice to ski in. So soft and luxurious. I think I'll save it for special occasions, when I really want to impress. Love it!
