Oscar Jacobson’s new spring/summer clothing collection is said to embrace the growing desire among golfers for fashionable attire that looks equally at home on and off the golf course. The Swedish golf apparel brand has blended proven performers, stylish newcomers and performance-enhancing fabrics with eye-catching fashion statements that they say will help golfers look and play their best in the ‘serious’ part of the golfing year.
High-performance newcomers like the high-tech Torex Fieldsensor fabric from Japan, Toray, which is said to raise polo shirt technology and UV-protection to new levels in humid and sunny conditions feature in the new range. While the extrafine merino wool, Cashwool collection has been expanded for SS17 alongside its industry-leading trouser line-up.
Oscar Jacobson Torex Fieldsensor Polo's
Geared directly for the warmer months of the golfing season, Torex Fieldsensor technology featuring in a number of the Spring Summer 2017 polo shirts, is said to boast a number of new qualities that enhance comfort and performance when playing in the warmth.
Jacobson claim that it disperses perspiration more efficiently and quickly by wicking it from the body side of the fabric to a broader area of the outer side, where it can evaporate rapidly. We’ve seen a lot of this kind of technology in recent years with the introduction of new materials in golfing apparel, linking increased comfort to better golfing performance.
The range also boasts premium UV-cut and anti-penetration properties, which reduce the effect of harmful UV rays that penetrate the fabric whilst bringing excellent levels of skin protection to golfers exposed to several hours of sunlight.
The Ivo Pin is a classic pique-knit, flat-knit collar polo available in five colours, whilst the Egon, available in four colours, features a similar construction in a design that also boasts striking colour contrast panels across the upper chest. Alric is a pique-knit polo in three colours with a stiff flat-knit collar and eye-catching sleeve and collar accents, while the Ace polo shirt, available in 3 colours, completes a smart looking collection.
Oscar Jacobson Merino Cashwool
With a tagline like “There’s Merino wool and then there’s Merino Cashwool", it’s clear that Oscar Jacobson are aiming for the top of the golfing apparel tree with these garments. Based on the notion that not every day in summer is a warm one (which we didn’t need Oscar Jacobson to tell us!) and golfers need to keep optimal body temperature without resorting to baggy excess clothing, the spring/summer 2017 collection garments provide an effective and stylish solution on such days.
The classic Wyatt V-neck sweater and Rutger V-neck slipover, both woven from Cashwool, a 100% extrafine merino wool are now available in a wider colour palette than ever before.
Typically a brand that will attract the ‘better player’ Oscar Jacobson have included some of the finest materials available in this range. These stunning slipover garments are fashioned around high-performing wool crafted by Baruffa at its Borgosesia plant in northern Italy. Cashwool uses only the very finest parts of the fleece to create a soft, fluffy and luxurious-feeling yarn that blends aesthetic beauty with top-quality performance.
Oscar Jacobson Sport Trouser Collection
Oscar Jacobson claim to have the “best trousers on the market”. And to be honest, with the slacks that are available in the new SS17 range, we can see why. It would be fair to say that they know a thing or five about making trousers, with over 114 years of tailoring expertise.
Brent, Dave/Dave Tour and Laurent make up the Slim Fit line for 2017, with Laurent featuring the thinnest bottom width at 37cm. This flat front, round-pressed polyester-rich trouser comes in four colours, with an articulated leg, a 4-way stretch and a stretch waistband offering added comfort and an optimum fit for golf.
The OJ Sport colour palette for Spring/Summer 2017 takes on three distinctive themes – Resort, bursting with a wide range of fresh summer colours for the more garish of golfers; Club, combining well-known classics with new takes on pink and blue; and Performance, offering style and function in widely masculine, sporty shades complemented by more than a hint of lime.
It doesn’t take a seasoned professional to notice that Oscar Jacobson have pulled out all the stops with this new collection. With a premium apparel brand comes premium technology, premium tailoring, and the reassurance that you’re getting more for your money.
