THE KITZB�HEL LOOK
November 25, 1963
The Tyrol not only produces some of the world's best sausages, it also makes some of the world's best ski gear. Every village has a tailor cutting skin-tight pants out of rainbows of stretch; every farmhouse has a wife knitting hearts and flowers into sweaters and stockings. Kitzb�hel, where these pictures were taken, is the Tyrol's fashion pacesetter. This season in the ski shops there is a run on red, a new popularity for stretch knickers, patterned knits and after-ski capes of bright loden.

The Tyrol not only produces some of the world's best sausages, it also makes some of the world's best ski gear. Every village has a tailor cutting skin-tight pants out of rainbows of stretch; every farmhouse has a wife knitting hearts and flowers into sweaters and stockings. Kitzb�hel, where these pictures were taken, is the Tyrol's fashion pacesetter. This season in the ski shops there is a run on red, a new popularity for stretch knickers, patterned knits and after-ski capes of bright loden.

Patricia Waller's stretch knickers and hand-knit cardigan are a modern ski version of the traditional Tyrolean costume worn by Kitzb�hel Village Blacksmith Josef Infeld.

Carmen Cioffi and Red Devil Hermann Auer wear "Walkjanker"—jackets borrowed from Tyroleans.

Lys Lender, framed by a baroque window of the Postkutsche inn, is cloaked in a cape of scarlet loden.
