Antigua Debuts Spring 2015 Menís Golf Collection
The Antigua Group, Inc. --one of the nation’s leading designers and marketers of lifestyle and golf apparel--has introduced its Spring 2015 Men’s Golf Collection that features the all-new Desert Dry Performance Cotton apparel.

 “We›re very excited about our Spring 2015 Men›s Golf Collection,” said Ron McPherson, President and CEO of Antigua. “Response to the bright colors, fantastic new styling, and the advanced moisture-wicking technology has been outstanding.”

Antigua’s Spring 2015 Men’s Golf collection is loaded with technology. For example, exclusive Desert Dry technology absorbs and wicks moisture quickly and evenly, achieving the most-efficient evaporation possible to keep golfers comfortable and dry. The Desert Dry family now includes poly/cotton blends. Antigua has taken Desert Dry moisture management technology and constructed fabrics with fine cotton fibers blended with synthetic filaments to create Desert Dry Performance Cotton. Customers have been requesting a more casual fabric, without compromising the wicking capabilities of the poly fabrics.  
Meanwhile, Desert Dry Xtra-Lite combines the Desert Dry moisture-wicking feature with specially constructed ultra-light fabrics for maximum wicking performance and optimum comfort. New additions to this category are 100 percent poly fabrics, and the garments feel like cozy cotton, but handle perspiration like poly.

The Spring 2015 Men’s Golf Collection includes 11 new shirt styles featuring proprietary Desert Dry and Desert Dry Xtra-Lite technology, as well as an assortment of pullovers, jackets, shorts, vest and hats. 

Antigua has also reintroduced some fashion Performance 72 classics, updated in performance fabrics and offered in new colors representing the seasonal palette. Style Major has been a popular performance spin on the classic 50-50, color-to-white horizontal feed stripe with a matching flat knit collar. Style Rush has been carried forward in new colors and represents sharp fashion with its self-fabric collar and dress shirt-inspired collar band, and updates the classic narrow pin stripe with added flexibility and a soft-touch fabric hand that includes spandex. Less classic and more staple, style Titan is a derivative of Antigua’s own essential style Icon, with its pique, single wale, one-inch repeating texture stripe and seam-engineered contrasting color filament chain stitch.

 Antigua has also developed several new styles with «self-flat knit collars» that invoke a self-collar appearance with the stability of a yarn-dyed flat knit collar. These include the irregular stripe body fabric pattern of style Trend; style Striker, which incorporates a pop color body fabric stripe and places it as a collar-tipped edge; and style Hue that utilizes the same concept adopting the narrowly repeated neutral body stripe as a matching collar effect. 

This season’s newly-developed color palette also contributes to the collection’s fashion appeal. After seasons of color building to a crescendo, which piqued with the cleanest of bright shades, this season’s inspired palette has transcended to a softer range with less flare and vibrancy.
