Industry leaders in fabric innovation, Polartec, announce the creation of a full range of performance fabrics for Japanese apparel brand Teton Bros. This exciting, close-working collaboration has resulted in custom fabric development by Polartec; and some of the most considered apparel for skiing and life around it.
Polartec skier, Baker Boyd, recently visited Teton Bros. founder, Nori Suzuki in his native Japan for two weeks of immersion into Japanese ski culture. From the US, Baker Boyd is a member of ‘The Freaks’ – who claim to be Aspen’s fastest ski gang. The resulting video is not your average Japan ski video.
As Baker Boyd commented: “Nori, the founder of Teton Bros, and his family and friends showed us an authentic Japanese experience. We skied secret stashes in the best locations with the coolest people.
We ate the best ramen, snacks, and sushi. Snacks and Polartec Neoshell are the staples of any good ski day. Even the one day the snow was bad, the food cheered us up”.
“It’s crazy how close Tokyo is to mountain life and how different they are. Thank you Polartec for the trip of a lifetime and Teton Bros for the hospitality. I hope to come back every year.”
