Alps & Meters, a premium alpine sportswear company, is excited to announce the arrival of its FW15 Forged Performance Collection. Inspired by simple, timeless alpine traditions, the new product line designed by Alps & Meters focuses on Forged Performance garments that fuse high quality materials with classic garment construction methods. The result is a line of jackets, trousers, sweaters and accessories tailored with contemporary technologies that deliver maximum on mountain fit and protection for the active menswear market.

Alps & Meters expresses a deep appreciation for the authentic and simple traditions of alpine sports, evoking the time-honored experience of skiing and mountaineering through its outerwear and garments. The new FW15 Forged Performance collection features the following garments: The Shawl Collar Jacket, The Alpine Winter Trouser, The Alpine Anorak and The Alpine Guide Sweater.
Alps & Meters gives thoughtful consideration to choices of materials, elements of performance protection, and details of classic styling. Technically knitted, the Shawl Collar Jacket forges traditional knitwear and rich leatherwork with waterproof contemporary technologies. Marrying a blended wool water repellant exterior with interior 10k/10k waterproof membrane, the Alpine Winter Trouser offers contemporary protective qualities and water resistant durability. The Alpine Anorak features a construction of a fortified British Millerain waxed canvas exterior, modeled on historic design similarly worn by the US 10th Mountain Division Alpinists. Combining the engineered comfort of lambswool knitwear and waxed cotton, the Alpine Guide Sweater is an authentic lightweight ski sweater ideal for warm mountain days.

The FW15 Forged Performance collection also features additional alpine sport accessories such as The Classic Pom Hat and The Alpine Winter Collar. Made with 100% lambswool, the Classic Pom Hat is a single pom-pom cap and a protective performance essential. The Alpine Winter Collar is tailored with a signature performance cut, maximizing warmth and protection. With each and every piece created, Alps & Meters delivers a sturdy, durable, and enduring level of quality with lasting appeal.

Alps & Meters' inspiration is drawn from the past, from places, and from individuals whose values reflect a passionate appreciation for simplistic, nostalgic, rich mountain experiences and memories. The FW15 collection aims to drive that message home to the mountains, with this new line demonstrating an exceptional combination of both classic craftsmanship and innovative technology to create a superior line of alpine sportswear this season.
