Abacus Scores with new fleece

Abacus Sportswear, the Official Apparel Supplier of The 2015 European Solheim Cup Team and a licensee to The 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, has introduced a new multi-functional Score Fleece to its autumn-winter 2014 collection. Made from stretch reverse fleece material, the exterior is similar to a satin soft shell with pill fleece on the interior of the garment. The Score jacket can be worn as an outer layer or combined with one of the brand’s lightweight and breathable waterproofs.

Available as both a jacket, and a vest for warmer autumnal days, the Score Fleece is available in a range of colours for both men and women, which include red, cobalt, black and white. The men’s garments blend bold colours and sporty graphics, while the ladies’ jackets comprise stylish two-tone panels to flatter the feminine physique.

Chris Mattsson, head designer at Abacus Sportswear, explained, “The Abacus Score Fleece takes inspiration from winter sports, incorporating the same features and functionality used in many snowboarding and skiing garments – sports which require, like golf, for the fabrics to be stretchable and to move in total sync with the wearer’s movements.

“As the nature of the game calls upon golfers to be out on the course for long periods of time and in potentially volatile autumnal weather, the new multi-functional Score Fleece embodies the Abacus brand ethos, of being breathable and lightweight, enabling golfers to concentrate exclusively on their game. What we, at Abacus Sportswear, call freedom of golf.” More at: www.abacussportswear.com
