WINTER 2021 - NEW SKI SUIT DESIGNS!
We are so stoked to launch our new range for 2021. 7 new designs added, whilst retaining our perennial best-sellers. We listened to our customers and brought back more of a retro vibe. So much so we even re-created the famous Princess Diana ski suit from the early 90's!
SUMMER 2021 - NEW RETRO SWIM WEAR RANGE LAUNCHED!
We brought our staple Nuts Cracker retro print into our new swim shorts and swim suits! We also added an Aztec print, Snow Leopard, and we couldn't do a new swim wear range without adding a Rainbow Road number!
FRESH RANGE - 2020
The start of the 2020 season saw us introduce 8 new ski suits, as well as keeping the perennial favourites the Rainbow Road, Fresh Prince and Nuts Cracker suits.
SUITS SHIPPED TO OVER 50 COUNTRIES WORLDWIDE - 2019
What a season. Our ski suits were worn by celebs, and we shipped our ski wear to 50 counties worldwide, including Costa Rica, Kazakstan and the Bahamas!
SKI SUITS, JACKETS...AND NOW PANTS & BASELAYERS - 2019
It was only a matter of time until we brought our retro-designs into a wider ski wear range. Baselayers, pants and bibs were launched for the 2019 / 2020 season.
MANUFACTURING OVERHAUL - RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES FTW - 2018
One of the biggest milestones in our history was to grow up, and overhaul our manufacturing process. From the start of the 2018/19 season we decided to source only the finest recycled polyester for our outerwear and organic cotton. Read more here.

Summer of 2018 saw us rebrand, from the Original Oldschool Ski Company to OOSC Clothing, as we began to branch out from just ski wear. Read about the re-brand here.
SWIMWEAR RANGE LAUNCHED - 2018
