Antigua Spring 2017 Men's Outerwear

PEORIA, AZ - 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 Outerwear Collection.

I recently was presented with the opportunity to write a review for a couple of Spring Outerwear pieces from Antigua Golf. On the surface I did not think this was going to be too difficult, I have commented before on how much I like their shirts. I selected two styles, the Regime and the Promenade. Both Pullovers come with a quarter-top zipper.

"It's a diverse offering of style, fabric, weight and content," says Sean Gregg, Antigua's Vice President of Product Development and Marketing Support. "Designed for practicality and style appeal, this season has all that's needed in outerwear to complement Antigua's polos while offering golfers the ability to layer as needed."

One of the most versatile outerwear pieces this season, style Regime combines a heather neutral twill knit with a solid jacquard lightweight stretch woven style -- it's a great lightweight outerwear layering garment. Golfers can barely feel the fabric's weight throughout their swing. Because of its lightweight breathability, it can be left on even as morning temperatures progress towards midday.

I have the Navy and Grey Regime. It is lightweight, comfortable and moves nicely so not to restrict any golf swing. I especially like the blending of the two fabrics to create a unique styled top. I am sure this will be a staple in my cool early morning golf rounds.

I wasn't sure I was going to like to open cuff. But, it actually works nicely to eliminate any pulling with movements in a golf swing. The collar stands up neatly and is contrastedd with the same fabric from the bottom, and it can also be turned over for a more open look. Either way the top fits nice, looks great, and is quite comfortable.

Style Promenade is a mid-weight complement to the polo collection and more specifically to the bird's eye effect used throughout the fashion pique offering. Its use of primary color and white yarn evenly knit into a solid fabric optically creates a mid hue shade of its originally saturated primary color. It uses both sides of the fabric, creating a tonal color block effect style, and can be worn actively or casually.

The Promenade I have is Black with Grey accent. It is a mid-weight top, it too is comfortable and moves nicely so not to hinder any action activity. I really like the way Antigua used the front and reverse of the fabric to create an interesting styled top. I am really going to enjoy wearing this top on those extra cool early morning golf rounds.

My thoughts are the same on the open cuffs. Again, they actually work nicely to eliminate any pulling with movements in a golf swing or other activity. The collar stands up neatly however it does not have the contrast fabric, and it can also be turned over for a more open look. For me the color combination is a bit dressier and it will make a great piece for less casual wearing. Antigua did a nice job selecting the proper weight for the zippers to match the weight of the fabrics, I don't even feel them. The top fits nice, looks great, and is quite comfortable.

"As Antigua's Spring '17 outerwear offering looks to mirror the design direction incorporated in the polo collection, there's also an element of sophistication that's interpreted in the outerwear offering," says Gregg.
