Peoria, AZ – Just in time for Father’s Day, Antigua is highlighting one of its most popular performance golf polos from the 2016 spring/summer collection – the Element heathered short sleeve polo.
“Element simply demonstrates that the fabric of a garment can be the garment…reaffirming the “less is more” adage,” says Sean Gregg, Vice President of Product Development and Marketing support. “The exaggerated heather fabric was engineered at the yarn level by twisting long contrasting strands of color fiber so that when they were inevitably knit into the fabric, the outcome of the irregular heather effect becomes the style’s appeal.”
By using this same technology, any heather effect can be engineered to achieve different levels of contrasting surface appearance, which when embellished by either garment piece dying or dying separate yarns, the fabric takes on a tonal hue. Antigua takes special care in constructing their heather yarns for performance apparel.
“The Element Shirt is spot on from a styling perspective and spot on from a fit perspective,” Says Ron McPherson, President and CEO of Antigua. “Element is our largest selling style from our spring and summer 2016 collection.”
DESERT DRY™ is a moisture-wicking technology created exclusively for Antigua, to absorb and wick moisture quickly and evenly. The Desert Dry product family includes any garment using a fabric weight of 150 gsm or heavier. Typically fabrics over 150 gsm offer more body and improved drape for the customers who don’t like the ultra-lightweight “clingy” fabrics currently in the market.
