At the end of every day of skiing comes the horrible moment when you take off your extreme-adventuring ski jacket to reveal clothing worthy of a senile oldster with whooping cough. Skip the turtlenecks, with EESA
With the motto "From Lift to Lounge", EESA's a former Burton product director's line, making stylish, bar-friendly layering garments using "Nolyester": a space-age stretchy material that's anti-moisture, anti-bacterial and, apparently, anti-dictionary. Among the dressier options are henleys, rugby shirts, and button-downs like the patched, cowboy-style Shooter, rubbing salt in the wounds of the Native Americans who once pitched their tee-pees along what is now your favorite bunny-slope. Because they're serious about layering, they also suggest long- and short-sleeve t-shirts, even a Nolyester wife-beater called the "Parson" -- because "Prison" don't sell
EESA also offers sweaters, ski-pants, shorts, hats, bandannas, and socks -- because while you might not be wearing long johns and bitching about "kids these days", you still appreciate socks that stand high up on your calves.
