Focusing on an updated fabric story, the Antigua Group, Inc. – one of the nation’s leading designers and marketers of lifestyle and golf apparel under the distinguished Antigua brand – announces its Spring 2017 Men’s Windwear Collection.
The versatile style Advance offers aesthetics and functionality. This long sleeve, half-zip pullover functions primarily as a windshirt, but thanks to its waterproof fabric also protects from light inclement weather. Though it’s intentionally not seam sealed to allow more breathability, this membrane-bonded interlock shell is paired with a lightweight tricot mesh lining for comfort and added flexibility. The accent fabric pieced into the top shoulder and side panels consists of a double knit, bonded two-tone twill fabric found on styles Vista and Regime — offering the ability to pair them together. Advance has a placket-side utility pocket and hip-high hand pockets, velcro-adjustable self fabric cuffs, and an adjustable bungee waistband to assist fit.
The windwear collection also includes style Tour, a short sleeve pullover windshirt with a half-zip placket, chest zip pocket and side waist hand pockets — all with accented reverse coil zipper teeth for a splash of color. The two-color bonded jacquard interlock fabric is lined with a lightweight tricot mesh fabric that promotes airflow and is potentially a wear everyday, anywhere garment that conforms to any outfit.
Style Conquer is the sleeveless companion to Tour, sharing the same bonded interlock body and tricot fabrics inside and out, and is equally styled with contrasting functional zippers and an elastic bungee bottom. Both styles are deliberately void of nearly all top stitching, to coincide with the current trend of clean line detailing that promotes a focus on fabric and silhouette and elicits the “less is more” cliché in a positive way.
