Who better to add crucial insider knowledge to Aztech Mountain than a champion skier? Olympic gold medalist Bode Miller is bringing his insight to the renowned performance outerwear and apparel brand and it’s an extensive partnership worth watching.

Aztech Mountain is known for its luxury approach to pieces like the Shadow Mountain Parka and Triangle Jacket, so it only makes sense that Miller has now joined the team as Chief Innovation Officer — and the face of the brand’s Autumn/Winter collection, to boot. Miller will advise on everything from business and product development to marketing, with a healthy dose of real-life action with the gear on the slopes.

Miller’s experience and knowledge of the market — and his prowess as a skier — all make him a valuable asset to the brand, explained co-founder Anthony Rutgers.

“Having Bode on our team to bounce ideas off of — be our sounding board — pushes the envelope in terms of product development; it allows us refine our designs and techniques,” Rutgers said.

Miller’s own admiration for the brand — which is sold in premium retailers like Barneys New York — makes the entire partnership a natural and fun fit, Miller noted.

“From the moment I was introduced to Aztech Mountain, I knew it was world-class,” said Miller. “I wanted to partner with a company that provides top-level design and performance both on and off the mountain. The quality of the fabrics, construction of the jackets and pants and attention to detail at every level is impressive.”

That level of detail shines through in pieces like the Sopris Shirt, a multi-faceted piece able to be worn as a shirt, a jacket or a turtleneck. The blue-and-black plaid color is cool, crisp and wearable on the mountain or off — particularly alongside classic slim tan chinos and durable leather chukka boots. Throw in an essential henley and consider yourself set for weekend adventures. The Five Peaks Cotton Pant is another similarly versatile piece, designed with performance and style in mind.

With an elastic waist and ankle cuffs, plus a modern, wearable fit, they’re the type of pant that would be perfect for apres-ski relaxation — at the bar or around the fireplace. There’s surely plenty more in store where that came from. With a slew of essential, functional product in the Fall collection ,and Miller’s know-how of the market,  it’s worth watching where the partnership between Miller and Aztech Mountain will go.

Steven Kurutz and American Giant endeavor to create a flannel 100% American made
Follow American Giant to bring flannel back to the USA

What makes the flannel shirt something that stays with us here in America? Is it the quintessential garment of the American worker? Does it make us feel as though we are driving horses across the plains in the old American West? How about working the day away, clearing logs from the Pacific Northwest to supply the entire country with the lumber needed to build houses, decks, and shop fronts? Or maybe we don't have to reach back as far to imagine the flannel renaissance of the 1990s bringing us the nostalgia of our childhood imitating Kurt Cobain on stage. Either way, the flannel is a staple of Americana, and American fashion brand American Giant has spent years attempting to bring that garment back home.

What started out as an article in the New York Times blossomed into a half-decade journey for author Steven Kurutz to chronicle AG's desire to bring flannel-making back to the shores of the United States and to save factory jobs in his new book, American Flannel. As a native of a small town in Pennsylvania, Kurutz has watched his town wither away as factory jobs were shipped overseas. For him, the book was more than a story of American determination; it was a personal connection to a quest to save his own hometown and others like it.
