On the other hand, the Northern Italian jack the courage where the focus is on the actual materials and details with everything from the placement of buttons and pockets to the feeling of the zipper. Always in a figure-hugging cut. Then we have ogled much against sports-and perhaps primarily the ski world and their demands on function, “says Peter.

Many of the sports industry construction techniques and materials to use in more everyday clothes without feeling becomes too technical, “says Peter.
