NEW! NEW ! NEW ! – Products coming. Petite shirts and glacier trekking “Shackelton” expedition socks.


The Petite line of Latitude 15 shirts for those who appreciate a “line” which follows “in shape” curves for smaller sizeso f Extra Small, Small, and Medium.  These shirts designed by Eileen Saavedra, our esoteric Peruvian designer, are made of the same exotic natural fibers of baby alpaca and silk and Xstatic silver with Dri-release cotton for ultimate of wearing comfort.  In addition to the trim line of these shirts, a full zipper is used for ease of on/off when a final hair do or larger earrings may need to be considered.  This full zip also allows for maximum rapidity of “dumping” heat when too much has built up.   These shirts are also good for middle school aged kids!  Coming this early fall in Midnight classic blue and fine Claret red!

Stay tuned or go the website and send an email to be put on the list for first availability.

All the best, and Happy Summer Solstice.  Stay up all night!

It will be short.  But watch out for those Druid spirits who are in control tonight.

PS.  Stay tuned for the next blog about our wonderful “Shackelton” expedition socks which have the same characteristics of cozy comfort and warmth,  moisture wicking, no odor, and good for use at extreme low temps. And for day to day wear.


A patented, intimate blend of synthetic and natural fibers that accelerates the water release rate of wet fabric. It is set apart from other moisture management products because of its faster drying time, the aesthetics imparted by its natural fiber component and its permanently built-in odor eliminator, FreshGuard®.

We've chosen Dri-release for the inside of the shirt because of its multiple comfort and protection features - features that appeal to the extreme sports aficionados targeted by Latitude 15 including skiers, trekkers, climbers, sky jumpers, big game hunters and the like that often find themselves among the elements for hours or days at a time.

"I was so glad to have my Latitude15 shirt with me. It turned out to be the favorite piece of clothing I had with me and so I ended up wearing it for the most of the trip. The level of comfort it provides in an extreme outdoor environment is amazing and its ability to keep your body "climate controlled" is absolutely unmatched by other materials like fleece or cotton. I can only say: Don't leave home without it!"
