Review: Antigua Performance Golf - Spring '17 Apparel LookBook
For the past seven years of covering apparel in the golf industry, I have had the pleasure of watching Antigua evolve its golf line. With each season, the brand seems to refine itself in styling, technology, and fit. Rooted in golf and founded in Scottsdale in 1979, Antiqua is an apparel business built around licensing.
Antigua apparel bears the logo off virtually every professional sports team and has a presence on all major professional golf tours. This year, they became the official apparel licensee of the Solheim Cup. Season after season, the Antigua line of apparel continues to improve and impress with its functionality and quality. It’s a rather understated brand worthy of overstated recognition.
Antiqua has embraced the ‘athleisure’ movement that has not only embedded itself into popular culture, but also golf soft lines.
Comfortable yet fashionable athletic gear that is suitable for the gym, shopping, dinner, and yes, even the golf course.
Have you seen young golfers today and how they dress? The emphasis is on comfort and athletic function. This is especially the focus in ladies apparel. The days of the country club dress codes, wool trousers, and specific measurements from the knee are all but out the window. As the game continues to evolve it’s participants and what they are wearing continue to evolve as well. It’s even apparent in the nomenclature to describe the Spring 2017 line from Antigua: Performance Golf.
This past month, I had the opportunity to preview the 2017 Performance Golf lineup from Antigua, and put together a miniature LookBook of selections that not only look good, but will function well both on and off the golf course. The eloquent marriage of function, style, and versatility.
