Antigua’s Spring Men’s 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,” says Ron McPherson, President and CEO of Antigua. “Response to the bright colors, fantastic new styling, and the advanced moisture-wicking technology has been outstanding. This promises to be our best-selling men’s collection to date.”

Antigua’s Spring 2015 Men’s Golf collection is loaded with technology. The Desert Dry technology absorbs and wicks moisture quickly and evenly, achieving efficient evaporation possible to keep golfers comfortable and dry.

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, a more casual fabric that doesn’t compromise the wicking capabilities of the poly fabrics.

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 that feel and look like cotton, but handle perspiration like poly.

The Spring 2015 Men’s Golf Collection includes 11 new shirt styles, as well as an assortment of pullovers, jackets, shorts, vest and hats.
“Antigua’s Men’s Performance 72  Collection Spring 2015 reflects the inspiration of defined and refined lines and angles both symmetric and asymmetric,” says Sean Gregg, Antigua’s director of product development and marketing support. “Each piece offers this distinction from our newly introduced style Soul with its high-low horizontal multi-wale double knit stripe in solid colors to style Vantage with its contrasting elastic taping details that highlight the styles linear raglan form.”

Additionally this season, Antigua has reintroduced several 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 fashion newness 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. Titan’s newness is demonstrated in its dual color spun microfilament yarn knit that offers a heather appearance in all the neutral ground shades.

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 collections fashion appealFor more details on Antigua’s Spring 2015 Men’s Golf Collection, visit
