A few months ago, a new brand of “technical performance intimates” (otherwise known as long underwear) called Matek launched. Pieces include a surprisingly flattering button-down one-piece long john called a Gentoo, a sweat-wicking turtleneck leotard and legging set, and a weirdly charming unisex fleece turtleneck bib with arm holes called a Dik-Dik.
One need only take a glimpse at the brand’s Instagram feed of vintage ski snaps to understand that the sport’s rich history is a key player in Stern’s designs. However, her ultimate driving inspiration “is how far the fabrics have come,” she explains, pointing out her four-way stretch jersey, which is equipped with sweat-wicking, odor-protecting, and quick-drying materials and made from recycled nylon.

By incorporating mesh on the calves, Matek ensures you won’t experience sock slide or bunching underneath your boots for all-day comfort. Last but not least is the easy-access butt flap, making bathroom breaks a breeze. Pair the Gentoo with the Serval bra and you’ve got yourself a killer combination for slaying the slopes.
Not Gorpcore, Just Chic. Indie skiwear brand Matek sells roughly the same product as Patagonia or Columbia: warm technical gear for experiencing the elements. But unlike the outdoor megabrands, Matek gracefully dances on the line between function and fashion.
The key to staying warm is, of course, the art of layering. Even if you’re in the warmest ski suit on earth, a flimsy cotton layer is something that can ruin your day (if you sweat even just a little bit, the wet cotton won’t dry—it will only make you cold). Matek, a new brand designed in Los Angeles, adds a touch of high-fashion pizzazz to dressing sensibly for the slopes.
For someone who hates wearing scarves but also hates being cold, the dik-dik is heaven sent. It’s functional yet chic, cozy yet stylish, cool yet warm. It’s for real the coziest thing in the world and is the perfect layer to keep you warm without making you sweat. I wear it everyday and I think that’s beautiful!!!
I've used and abused just about every different type of underwear and outerwear on the market since age 5. The Matek Gentoo is the first baselayer I never wanted to take off. I tried it on the evening it arrived to check the size. It fit perfectly, and I didn't take it off until I showered the next morning. My first time wearing it on snow was just as satisfying.
I bought leggings AND the turtleneck top.Both are really great. I am using them as an underlayer for skiing. Not only are they warm and a wonderful thick enough material, they look really great. Especially the turtleneck. I'm really happy with my purchase!
Just returned from a snowboarding trip to Big Sky, MT where it was in the negatives most of the time. I can safely say the Gentoo kept me warmer than any of my other base layers all week. This is truly thoughtful design. Best butt flap in the business to boot.
It’s the most comfortable onesie. My grandkids loves wearing it all the time.
I bought this last minute for my ski trip and ended up wearing it everyday. The most perfect base layer. Can't wait to try out other products by Matek.
