Oscar Jacobson S/S 16 blends proven performers with stylish newcomers

Oscar Jacobson’s spring/summer 2016 golf collection will offer a blend of proven performers and stylish newcomers, mixing performance-enhancing fabrics with eye-catching fashion statements. The fashion influences in its latest golf wear make it more versatile than ever, looking equally at home on the course or around town.

The collection is available in two colour themes: Resort for a more classic look majoring on blues, yellows and whites; and Club, a reflection of the wider fashion industry’s influences, mixing white with added contrast colours to create a sophisticated, yet sporty look. Black, red and white have been at the heart of Oscar Jacobson’s ranges for over 100 years, almost becoming a signature colour theme. Many pieces in the latest collection will be available in various combinations of this striking marriage of colours.

The Hartmann jacket (pictured), white with black and red accents/trims is one of three colour options in a two-layer waterproof top designed for ultimate performance thanks to four-way stretch woven fabrics, fully taped seams and articulated sleeves for an improved fit. Clemens comes into the range as the new ultralight padded anorak for those chilly days when a little extra warmth is required. Clemens features Primaloft padding material, which allows it to deliver extra warmth without adding unwanted bulk, plus a rib-stop outer surface for a fittingly technical look. It is again available in three colour options, with two based around the signature black/red/white theme.

Summer golf doesn’t always mean shirtsleeve golf, so newcomers Bobby and Bogart are on hand for those days when an extra layer is required. Bobby is a classic, extrafine, single-colour cotton V-neck sweater in a wide colour palette, from age-old favourites like navy, black, blue and pale blue to vibrant red, yellow and green. Bogart is the new extrafine cotton half-zip sweater, available in the same seven colours. Brison is then an extrafine cotton V-neck sweater with a striking, intarsia design down the left chest and side that gives it a fashionably retro, yet contemporarily stylish look for golfers after something a step beyond the classic single-colour sweater.

A comprehensive performance polo shirt line-up sees favourites like Alfie, Collin and Anton joined by newcomers such as Lyndon, Jules and Kay, offering various patterned or mixed-colour fashion designs in a wide variety of colours. All three come under the OJ Sport Weather Protection System (WPS) layering concept.

OJ’s Leisure Chinos and Tech Trousers will now be available in a wider selection of colours to suit both conservative and more adventurous tastes. The cotton-rich Leisure Chinos have just a hint of elastane for improved fit and comfort, with yellow, royal blue and white options for the bolder golfer; the polyester Tech Trouser offers navy, black and grey at the classic end of its colour spectrum, with royal blue, yellow, red, green and white at the more striking end.
