Delaine & Co., maker of domestically sourced ski sweaters, revisited Hollywood’s golden era with a modern take on a timeless design.
Inspired by the 1969 film of the same name, Delaine’s Downhill Racer Sweater brings merino wool to the style that once ruled the slopes of A-list celebrities.
“There’s an unmistakable glamor about that era of skiing,” said Delaine founder Scott MacKenzie. “We knew if we could recreate a piece of that with modern materials and manufacturing processes, we would be onto something special. There’s a renewed interest in having fewer high-quality long-lasting garments, and a Delaine sweater is made to last a lifetime.”
Delaine sweaters are “Made in the USA from 21-micron merino wool from Climate Beneficial verified wool,” contributing to a “rigorous climate-positive land stewardship program in the U.S.”
The Downhill Racer sweater is designed to be a mid-layer on cold days or worn as an outer layer on warmer spring days. sy
