Carnoustie Sportswear, which has been a staple in some of the country’s finest golf resorts, country clubs and retail golf shops for more than 20 years now, has unveiled its Fall 2016 lineup that features some bold new colors and looks as we head into the colder months.
Beginning this fall, Carnoustie is introducing some new performance styles under the Carnoustie TECH label, which have been designed to evoke a more active, performance side featuring polos that have a rich, natural feel but are made of some of the finest performance knits on the market and maintain the Carnoustie tradition of refinement and elegance in its designs.
“The simplicity of the patterns, with the boldness of color, combine to create a collection of knits that stand out even in today’s crowded marketplace,” said Carnoustie President and Founder Marshal Mancillas.
“We have consistently given our customer quality he can depend on. When he buys a Carnoustie product he knows that it will be in his wardrobe for a long time looking as good as the day he bought it. And he knows that he will be fashionable on and off the course in a Carnoustie polo.”
This new collection of performance knits features chest stripes, color blocking, melange yarns and many self-fabric collars. Carnoustie is also offering for the first time a beautiful long sleeve style in five wonderful melange colors. The long sleeve polo has the perfect combination of weight and drape that will make it a favorite first layer in the colder conditions associated with the fall season. The classic fit that many golfers enjoy is evident in the design of these new styles.
“We are thrilled with the continued enthusiasm that our customers have for our performance styles. Our instincts were well founded: there is clearly a demand for performance garments that offer the wearabilty that today’s fibers can offer but that are styled in a tasteful, timeless fashion,” added Mancillas. “There has been so much interest in this segment of our business that we have rebranded these goods under the new TECH label.”
Also on the docket for the Fall of 2016 are new additions to its cotton suede choices for pullovers, jackets and vests. With a reputation of having some of the finest fleece garments available, Carnoustie has developed wonderful new colors, new handsome jacquard patterns and even some new styles--including a modern yet retro full zip jacket with front panels.
“The market has remained very loyal to the Carnoustie cotton suede collection through the years,” noted Mancillas. “Despite the competition in this category, these goods have developed and maintained a wonderful following. The extraordinary hand that these goods offer is a result of a very intricate brushing process that is proprietary to us. It is a costlier process but nothing else comes close. I am excited to debut the new colors and styles we have developed for Fall 16. I am confident they will stir some excitement in this category.”
