The Antigua Spring 2015 men’s golf outerwear collection has been introduced
“The Spring 2015 Men’s golf outerwear collection is the focal point of Antigua’s ever-expanding lightweight golf outerwear,” said Antigua president and CEO Ron McPherson.
“Technology advancements have included new lightweight functional fabrics, making the design potential limitless, and golf outerwear has been crossing over to daily wear use, which has helped grow the category,” added McPherson.
For 2015, half-zip pullovers such as Asset are available in a range of colourful heather shades complemented with brighter tonal sleeve taping and contrasting placket zippers that allow it to transition to everyday wear.
The lightweight outerwear styles have been designed with the intent be worn as standalone garments, over a tee shirt or performance polo or under a heavierouterwear piece.
Crux, for instance, is constructed using a mid-weight, double knit neutral heather interlock that’s contrasted with deep palette colour shades and outlined with seams covered in bright color contrast cover stitching.
Haze is designed to demonstrate the subtle simplicity of a tonal irregular yarn, constructed into a lightweight, lightly brushed half-zip pullover, made to be comfortable in cool climates without impeding movement.
As technology advanced to make wind-resistant fabrics lighter, thinner and softer for both comfort and flexibility, these advancements also offered unique design opportunities to add features and functionality not previously available.
With the new half sleeve windshirt Skill, the process of bonding a thinly constructed micro-membrane behind and against the filament knit interlock outer face, and sandwiching it with an additional inner layer of filament interlock, gives the appearance of one singularly constructed layer of fabric.
This one-piece, multi-layer, wind-resistant fabric eliminates the need for an additional garment lining.
Due to its shell construction, Skill is designed to function as a wind-resistant garment while also keeping golfers dry from rain based on its high-quality inner membrane.
It’s embellished with elastic outer garment seam tape.
