This is getting to be quite humorous. Seems like most of the comments are related to personal preference and style or look.
It may be that very few people on this forum would be caught dead wearing Bogner or Killy. And that may well be because of past "sightings" of people clothed in them, and a combination of things. I'll be polite. But let's be serious, the stuff is very well made, with top quality everything, including pretty outlandish MSRP's. If you have ever seen any of the German alpine team clothing made by Bogner, you've seen how nice and technical it can be. It's a nice as it gets. And while the "style" that we see may normally be over the top, some of it can be pretty basic. Killy has never appealed to me, but it's also very well made.
Degree 7 is making a comeback, but I believe that it's an entirely different company...a group that bought the Degree 7 name a while ago. Back in the day, it was considered to be THE high end technical wear, but it was French and had some funky colors. The founder was one of the first serious extreme skiers in Chamonix, the late Patrick Vallencant. I know that the new stuff is being distributed in Europe, NZ, etc. I don't think there's a NA distributor. Can't add a thing, other than I'm curious. Other than that, check out my 1989 Degree 7 stuff listed for sale on that forum. That would make you unique. The plum and violet were the calmest colors of the day.
Other brands. I have quite a bit of Phenix stuff. It's all top end race oriented models, which I snagged at the right time. Coach's jackets, WC pants, etc. I don't think anybody's every looked at me and thought "what an effen Joey." It has lasted, and performed very well. Some of the newer stuff doesn't appeal to me, at all. Not a big Kjus fan, mainly due to the price, though I also hate some of the colors. No way would I pay that kind of money. I had a chance to look over a jacket that was used by Bode's Team America, and they are really beautiful. One of my friends bought a really nice black and gray jacket, and his comment was that he'll get the cost down to $1 a day, eventually. Figures he buys a jacket once every 10-12 years. My guess is more like $2. Again, not my thing.
I have some Spyder Coach's pants, and a pair of USST issue pants, and other than them, no thanks on Spyder as of late. Same with Karbon. I have never been impressed with it, other than to say that it seems to last forever.
My absolute favorites these days are Cloudveil, and Arc. Functional, comfortable, and I'd be seen looking for a beer and a burger in them, etc. Versatile. I walk the dogs in the rain in them, etc. I wear them off season. I think that top to bottom, they make great stuff. It layers well, breathes, and is waterproof. I like the pocket and zipper systems. I'm hoping that we won't see many changes at Cloudveil since they were acquired by Spyder. If style is your thing, Cloudveil is pretty basic.
Since the OP's goal seems to be to find something that's fairly unique, I have two suggestions. One is Halti. Very nice stuff, and priced to not break the bank. Check out SRD's website. You don't see it everywhere, yet. You will see some race programs in it, as they're doing a good job in that area. SRD also sells other brands, like Goldwin. This is for the most part race oriented stuff, and may not appeal to you. Goldwin is "costly" to say the least. Very nice. What the Swedish team wears. And Halti may not be so unique for long, as it gains traction.
if you want a high end line that you are not going to see much of in North America, it might be worthing taking a look at something like Millet. French, pronounced "me-ay." They tried to distribute this in the US, and I'm not sure how far that got, and whether they gave it up, or not. It was quite expensive, they didn't have any brand awareness, and had hard a tough time pushing it at their costs and prices. I would describe it as technical wear. Perhaps a more Euro version of a Cloudveil or Arc kind of look. What I saw was really well made, with great features. I thought the colors were, well "not for me." That was two years ago. I bet you can find it on line, outside of the US. That might fit the bill of being unique, and nice. If this helps, I remember that the stuff that I tried on pretty much was true to size in the fit.
I'm 54, having been skiing for 52 of those years about 50-60 days a year at the least. I wash my hair, too, but use no "product" in it. I may comb it with my fingers during a ski day. In ski clothes, we buy function first, well ahead of form and style. I think that mosty people on this forum do. We try to buy on deep discounted sales, and we tend to keep what works for years. I'm not a Bogner, or Killy fan, but that doesn't mean it's not beautifully made stuff. If you like the look, the quality is there, without question. My wife has a Bogner coat, about 8 years old, goose down, with a down filled hood. On the coldest of days, or standing watching a race, she'll always reach for it first. It has at least 200 days of use, and looks new. Works for her. Doesn't really look like Bogner, though!
