Golf may at times be a hard game to play so wearing soft Antigua shirts can be very comforting. Sean Gregg, Vice President of Product Development and Marketing Support is focused on “improving the already soft hand feel of the Desert Dry and Desert Dry Xtra-Lite fabrications without compromising performance.” He explains, “Spandex elevates the softness factor and amplifies the body of the fabric that it’s knit into, enhancing the performance fabrics’ natural drape in this season’s collection.” And we thought spandex was just about the stretch.
Gregg knows his stuff, hailing from the New York fashion industry and he has accomplished this mission of softness and performance with additional fabrication techniques incorporating nylon as well. Take the Element style shown here. It goes beyond Charmin soft in a simple heather fabric that is the essence of its style. Please don’t squeeze the golfer, or do.
Heather is a theme throughout the Spring ‘16 Collection with exaggerated, elongated and deliberately uneven effects in neutrals and over-dyed primary colors in the Compete, Surface and Influence styles.
Antigua colors our golf world in a very classy manner. The multi color striped Vision boldly embraces this concept while Expanse artistically insets heather coloring on the chest of neutral shades and matches it with a narrow sleeve band. The Edge incorporates a fine line of strategic color pop piping contrast that truly accentuates the male physique.
Deliver is emblazoned with bold contrasting chest stripes, using broken art spaced apart to distinguish the variation of the black, white and tonal silicone printing while Skyline delivers a fun approach to color blocking on the under arm & top back panel with silicone print detail at front armhole.
Men need look no further than Antigua for not only golf polos but polos to wear out and about. Such is the feedback that carried Striker forward from the ‘15 collection. Mixing variegated black and grey horizontal stripes arbitrarily repeating and interrupted by a bold primary color stripe has made it rather legendary.
Little details are tweaked in all the ‘16 styles for modernization such as length of collar. Sleeve length is adjusting away from the elbow to eliminate fabric that accumulates when setting up a shot. Plus it gives the preferred aesthetic of a clean, unrestricted fit.
The Antigua Golf Jacket is the perfect layer for the Spring ‘16 Collection of soft polos. It warms in a flash with full frontal zipper and side zipper pockets, displayed in Mango. Available shades vary between all the styles so check them out at www.antigua.com
