Shirts That Work for Office Casual and the Slopes

Two new shirts that can handle double duty fall, winter or spring.

8580266_RED_Chuck_Plaid_RedDakine Chuck Plaid: Made from two layers of no-stink, non-bulky, polyester fabric that trap warm air in between, Dakine's button front baselayer easily swings from slope to aprés, but you won't get double takes when you wear it to the hardware store. Available now, $65,


Outdoor Research Feedback Flannel: It feels like your favorite cotton button front flannel, but this Outdoor Research shirt is 100 percent flannel feel brushed poly. It dries fast, wicks moisture, and has functional front pockets that work for casual Friday, or the onset of the white flu, when you're headed for the slopes. Available August 2012, $79,
