Antigua 2017 Men’s Collection Review by Jason Tenzer of More Golf Today
“Designed for practicality and style appeal, this season has all that’s needed in outerwear to complement Antigua’s polos while offering golfers the ability to layer as needed.” … Sean Gregg, Antigua’s Vice President of Product Development and Marketing Support.
There are many things for me to look forward to each year … another birthday filled with enough candles to start a small fire, a few more creaks in the knees as I get up from a chair, a little less hair to comb, but one that I can actually look forward to is another collection by Antigua. They are one of my favorite apparel companies. I love walking around the clubhouse in one of their shirts as I see someone walking around with a shirt from a “brand to remain nameless” knowing they spent big bucks on their apparel. The time is here, the package has arrived, and 5 brand new 2017 Antigua products are waiting.
Great color combinations are available in this two-color pullover (5 colors to choose from). I opted for a light “Celtic” green to match my argyle bag. Don’t judge, you just have to match every once in awhile. This is perfect for those days that are just about to turn hot, but don’t really get there. The Regime didn’t disappoint and it is not only in my golf rotation, it’s in my gym rotation. Great pullover to wear after working up a sweat.
One of the most versatile outerwear pieces this season, style Regime combines a heather neutral twill knit with a solid jacquard lightweight stretch woven style — it’s a great lightweight outerwear layering garment. Golfers can barely feel the fabric’s weight throughout their swing. Because of its lightweight breathability, it can be left on even as morning temperatures progress towards midday.
DESCRIPTION: 91% polyester/9% spandex Desert DryTM moisture wicking dobby back texture woven 1/4 zip pullover with contrast 100% polyester heather twill knit bottom panel & inside collar fabric. Stand up collar & open bottom. 3D silver reflective A logo.
Think Winter down puffy coat, without it being a down puffy coat. The Arctic Pullover has the diamond shape design across the front to give it the Winter look. This pullover seems to be worn a few times a week as I leave the house at 6:30AM. If you have an early morning tee time, the Arctic Pullover is the choice you should be making. If you’re going out and you’re going casual, but don’t want to go super casual with just a tee shirt, put the Arctic Pullover on with a nice pair of slacks and you’re ready to go.
Perhaps the most directional outerwear style of the Spring ’17 performance fashion collection is the Arctic Pullover. With two uniquely different fabric constructions that make up this long sleeve mid-to-heavyweight garment, it’s intentionally understated. Its front body panel is double knit into a quilted diamond pattern using heather yarns and is pieced together with singularly knit jersey heather sleeves and back fabric. The fabrics are overdyed in deep hues corresponding to bright shades. This half-zip, long sleeve pullover is handsomely sophisticated and is a multifunctional lifestyle garment that can complement golf wear, dining out, and a casual pair of jeans.
DESCRIPTION: 100% polyester Desert DryTM moisture wicking heather 1/4 zip pullover with diamond quilted front panel and 93% polyester/7% spandex heather jersey with texture back sleeves & collar. Cut & sew cuff. Stand up collar & open bottom. 3D silver reflective A logo.
The lightweight of the Vista makes this style of pullover a perfect combination with your golf attire. It’s not cumbersome and will never get in the way of your swing. You can also look good while you play too.
Vista is a creatively constructed loopback, two-color twill face fabric. Designed as a mid-weight, long sleeve, half-zip outerwear garment, the tonal twill knit in this season’s rich shades is set off with contrasting elastic tape sewn into coverstitch seam details — creating a color block pop of complementing color. Its reverse coil zipper is enhanced with the same corresponding accent colors, to bring the accent front-and-center.
DESCRIPTION: 100% polyester Desert DryTM moisture wicking heather twill knit 1/4 zip pullover with contrast taping & dyed to match coverstitch detail. Stand up collar, open bottom & contrast zipper placket. 3D silver reflective A logo.
The one thing that stands out in the Promenade in the 5% spandex in the material. The little bit of stretch goes a long way with this 1/4 zip pullover. It gives more of a form fitting feel, but gives way during those 300 yard drives down the fairway. The Promenade is available in 6 colors.
Promenade is a mid-weight complement to the polo collection and more specifically to the bird’s eye effect used throughout the fashion pique offering. Its use of primary color and white yarn evenly knit into a solid fabric optically creates a mid hue shade of its originally saturated primary color. It uses both sides of the fabric, creating a tonal color block effect style, and can be worn actively or casually.
DESCRIPTION: 95% polyester/5% spandex 2-color dot pattern long sleeve 1/4 zip pullover. Stand up collar & open bottom. 3D silver reflective A logo.
The Tsunami is very similar to the Promenade with a little variance in material (92% polyester/8% spandex compared to 95%/5% for the Promenade). The main difference between the 2 is the color scheme with the Tsunami being more a striped 1/4 zip pullover. Either way, you can’t go wrong between the Tsunami and Promenade.
Lightweight style Tsunami is created with heather and solid feed stripes undulating as a horizontal all-over repeat. The color’s subtlety is circumstantial to the heather yarn being used to define the stripe pattern. A derivative of the tight repeating feed stripe seen in the main fabric has been isolated and knit into a pattern variation of the main fabric. This derivative fabric is then utilized as a complementing inset fabric in the garment’s side panels, to enhance the design of the long sleeve, half-zip outerwear style. The placket zipper showcases contrasting color nylon coil teeth that tie the garment to the season’s vibrant color stories.

At $83 retail, you cannot go wrong with any of the 2017 Men’s Outerwear Collection. The high quality of each piece enables your pullover to last for many golf seasons (trust me, I’ve worn my Arctic Pullover more than almost anything in my collection and it keeps getting better, if that’s possible). There’s a reason the NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA, and many other Associations work with Antigua. I want to do everything possible so you will keep Antigua in mind for your next outerwear purchase.
