Style File // The Alpine Racer


Perhaps the greatest and most stylish skier of all time is Jean-Claude Killy. He was the King of the Slopes during the mid-to-late ’60s and, when on them, no other competitor matched him in terms of style and skill. Killy became the first FIS Alpine Ski World Cup champion and is mostly remembered for his winning sweep of all three Alpine skiing events at the 1968 Grenoble Winter Olympics. A true winter sports icon, Killy served as the inspiration for this week’s Style File. In The Alpine Racer, we take our Conner Plaid Shirt and head off to one of our favorite places to be during the winter – on the powdery slopes.
