Following two widely successful collections since its launch in Summer 2012 the G-Mac by Kartel collection this Fall continues to focus on superior craftsmanship , performance fabrics and exquisite attention to design and detail to bring you a full collection of premium sophisticated apparel.
Alongside the now classic Portrush polo shirt, offered in eight stylish colours, the Fall collection includes performance shirt McRetro, as seen on Graeme during his win at the RBC Heritage in April. McRetro features a micro-check jacquard design on the chest panel only, on an otherwise solid coloured shirt with accent colour pipe on the inside collar, cuff and shoulder.
The Fall collection also introduces the new McTurtle, a non-restrictive short neck mock turtle performance under layer, designed for extra comfort on cooler winter days on the course.
This season’s knitwear collection includes classic styles MgWool, McZipV and McButton, all available in a host of new colours. New to the knitwear collection is style McEire, a cashmere blend ••• zip knit with a chest panel quilt design jacquard which features contrast piping on the outside back shoulder and subtle “poachers sleeve” detail, a feature influenced by those poachers of yester-year who would crawl under the fences on their elbows.
The trouser collection has expanded with new styles McPlaid and McMicroT in a variety of colours to compliment the shirts and knitwear from the collection. Kartel have also introduced the McMicroS short- the first short in the G-Mac by Kartel collection.
The colour stories for the Fall collection work in harmony with the tones of the season using the rich vibrant shades the collection has become known for.
Performance Fabric Stories for 2013
All products in the G-Mac by Kartel collection are designed in Ireland with superior Irish craftsmanship.
The polo shirts have a UV factor of up to 30, and feature anti- microbial odor management properties. There are two patented moisture management technologies that wicks away perspiration comfortably; Dry Tec allows shirt moisture to rapidly evaporate, while Absorbtec enables shirts to absorb and quickly dry away moisture.
Knitwear is composed of either 100% pure mercerized wool, or a cashmere blend, both are extremely breathable fabrics that provide optimum outward air circulation for temperature regulation.
The Fall 2013 Collection will be available in selected golf resorts and online in late August.
Kartel is part of John Swan Ltd, a family owned Irish business based in Dublin, Ireland. We were founded in 1947 when a young tailor, John Swan, set up his own modest clothing company in two small rooms above a pub in Dublin’s Hill Street. Initially, the company began making men’s suits, jackets and trousers, but over the last 60 years we have extended our collections into a much broader offering.
In 1985 the Kartel brand was launched with men’s casual jeanswear and suit collections, as well as premium golf apparel ranges for both men and women. Kartel is now a leading Irish menswear label, we are one of the largest clothing distributors in Ireland and we are currently selling in 26 countries worldwide.
