SLUG Style: Chris Garcin


Every month, SLUG Style features a distinct and unique member of the community and asks them why they do what they do. Exploring more than just clothing, SLUG Style is an attempt to feature the people who give Salt Lake City flavor through personality and panache.


Chris Garcin hails from a place called Party Mountain, a ski resort where it is perpetually 1993. Party Mountain is always stocked with Bud Light, abounds in hot tubs and straight skis, has a giant fireplace and, most importantly, highly functional sports eyewear. He is the face behind local company Pit Viper Sunglasses. Chris Garcin came down from Party Mountain to tell SLUG what it’s like there. After that, he’s heading home for a ski race to win the resort back from “the anonymously evil, Wayfarer-wearing, Italian sunglasses executive known only by his last name—Lorenzo,” says Garcin.
