BEST OF BOTH WORLDS: OSCAR JACOBSON’S AW18 COLLECTION DELIVERS AN EXCITING BLEND OF STYLE AND PERFORMANCE
The modern golfer seeks the ultimate in performance from their winter wardrobe, allowing them to play their best when the weather turns for the worse. But high functionality should not come at the expense of style. With 114 years of tailoring experience, Swedish brand Oscar Jacobson has been kitting out European Tour golfers for over four decades. Combining men’s fashion and cutting-edge technologies, Oscar Jacobson’s Autumn/Winter 2018 collection features fashionable, technical garments delivering the best of both worlds: style and performance.
The 21st-century golfer requires stylish apparel that works equally well on and off the golf course. Oscar Jacobson’s rich heritage in fashion tailoring, dating all the way back to 1903, ensures that performance and style run deep in the brand’s DNA. The new Autumn/Winter 2018 collection from Oscar Jacobson Sport draws heavily on the brand’s expertise in fashion tailoring, and its exceptional knowledge of technical golf apparel. As such, it delivers a range of garments that will not only perform on the fairways, but will also deliver a dynamic and stylish look to turn heads on the high street.
Best of both worlds
When the seasons turn, warmth becomes a key issue for golfers seeking effective, yet stylish, solutions to the dilemma of how to retain heat without adding bulk and reducing freedom to swing. Oscar Jacobson solves this problem with PrimaLoft ®; an ultralight, yet warm, padding material.
Featuring a lightweight PrimaLoft ® padded body and jersey knitted sleeves with a brushed backside, the Carson hybrid jacket offers the best of both worlds – core insulation and greater freedom of movement.
Caleb is a PrimaLoft ® sleeveless vest, for those days when retaining core body warmth is the key requirement. It works well on its own or under a rain jacket. Featuring Oscar Jacobson’s ZIP-IN technology, it’s compatible with the premium 3-layer, 4-way stretch Lawrie Pro waterproof shell jacket. Also ZIP-IN compatible, and featuring PrimaLoft ® padding, is the lightweight Jamie jacket.
Featuring ultra-light PrimaLoft ® insulation with a brushed backside, the all new Gary trousers are designed to be worn next to your skin. They draw upon Oscar Jacobson’s fashion tailoring expertise to deliver a superior ‘tailored’ fit, while offering the best performance benefits that modern fabric technologies can deliver.
Merino pullovers for Autumn/Winter 2018 again come in a variety of styles. There’s an extensive colour range in the Cashwool ® 100% Extrafine merino wool classic V-neck Wyatt and quarter-zip Heron. The turtle neck Hyatt comes in three colour options.
100% Extrafine Cashwool® from Zegna Baruffa is a stylish, unique and high-performing yarn crafted by Baruffa at its Borgosesia plant in the Piedmont region of northern Italy. This soft, luxurious wool was born out of intensive research in the late 1970s to find a yarn combining aesthetic beauty with top-quality performance.
Hybrid sweaters and pullovers within the AW18 range deliver comfort and style, on and off the course. The Marshall full-zip sweater blends cotton, nylon and elastane for a contemporary look while the 50% cotton/50% polyester Hawkes T-neck sweater offers innovative cut lines for enhanced fit. The Jerome half-zip and Pilou round neck pullovers marry 50% Extrafine wool with 50% Polyacrylic. Both offer on and off-course versatility.
The Iwan zipped cardigan and Anders T-neck sweater both feature a stretchy drop liner for exceptional comfort and warmth on windy days, while the Orson T-neck sweater offers classic golf styling.
The short sleeve Chap polo and Chauncery long sleeve polo, together with the Jonathan and Roald thermals, offer base and inner layering options to maximize comfort and warmth on the course.
Oscar Jacobson’s Autumn/Winter 2018 collection offers three distinctive colour themes – Performance which is all about function and expressing an active lifestyle, both on and off the course. Urban draws on Oscar Jacobson’s heritage in fashion tailoring and reflects trends from the high street and menswear while Dynamic is a little more playful and is aimed at those looking to stand out rather than blend in.
Oscar Jacobson Sport’s Autumn/Winter 2018 collection will perfectly prepare any golfer to meet the demands of off-season golf with an ideal blend of performance, function and style.
