Comfort and style join forces off the slopes.    Photo: Inga Hendrickson

Snowboarders may take issue with this statement, but we think the best place to embrace personal style is off the slopes. Do après right with these eight picks.

Duer L2X Slim Fit Jeans ($129)

When it comes to denim, cut is everything. That’s why we’re fans of Duer’s jeans. Blended with a touch of Lycra for nonconstricting stretch, they’re way more comfortable than fancy selvage. 

Icebreaker Spire Cardigan ($250)

The Icebreaker Spire cardigan is woven from a cushy merino and acrylic blend, great for lounging fireside or on the lodge deck. 

Stance Grainer Socks ($14)

Your feet have been jammed into clammy ski boots all day. Give them a break with Stance’s Grainer socks. The smooth, combed cotton feels like silk compared with thick wool. 

Will Leather Goods Gunner Belt ($35)

The Will Leather Goods Gunner belt has a tight weave that all but guarantees a snug waistline, and it comes in 13 colors, so you can add pop to otherwise muted winter duds.

Corridor Blanket Plaid Shirt ($225)

Corridor’s Blanket Plaid shirt is made from organic cotton that’s as warm as your favorite flannel bedding. The tailored fit ensures you won’t look like you pulled it from Grandpa’s closet. 

Shinola Runwell Contrast Chrono 47mm Watch ($800)

Shinola’s Runwell Contrast Chrono 47mm watch tells time with style. Made in Detroit, it has a stainless-steel case with topaz plating for a sleek look. 

Fjällräven Keb Down Jacket ($650)

Top your après kit with a crazy-warm piece like the 800-fill Fjällräven Keb Down jacket. It’s our favorite outer layer for frigid days, thanks to the adjustable hood and stretchy cuffs. 

Bogs Carson Boots ($120)

When the slush gets deep, reach for Bogs’ Carson boots. Rubber uppers shed water, and neoprene insulation keeps toes warm down to 14 degrees.
