Oscar Jacobson is seeking to appeal to the modern-day golfer who want functionality and looks both on and off the golf course. Having been the brand of choice for European Tour golfers for over 40 years, the new Autumn/Winter 2018 collection features clothing which delivers both style and performance for the best of both worlds.
The age-old golfing dilemma of staying warm whilst still having room to swing freely is tackled by Oscar Jacobson with the inclusion of PrimaLoft technology for the first time, as featured in the Carson Hybrid Jacket. With a lightweight padded body and knitted sleeves, the jacket ensures that the golfer’s core remains insulated despite the garment’s breathability.
The PrimaLoft sleeveless vest Caleb is designed for those days when golfers need to retain core body warmth, and is perfect both on its own or under a jacket or a coat.
The Caleb is compatible with zip-in jackets such as the 3-layer, 4-way sretch Lawrie Pro waterproof, and the lightweight Jamie jacket, to provide that extra layer of insulation against the elements in one combined garment.
The new ultra-light Gary trousers are designed to be worn next to your skin. They draw upon OJ’s fashion tailoring expertise to deliver a superior ‘tailored’ fit, while offering the best performance benefits that modern fabric technologies can deliver.
Using extrafine cashwool from Zegna Baruffa, the premium quality merino pullovers come in a range of different styles for the winter months. The classically-styled V-neck Wyatt and the quarter-zip jumper have a large variety of colourways, and there are three colour options for the accompanying turtle neck Hyatt.
The Marshall full-zip sweater blends cotton, nylon and elastane for a contemporary look while the half-cotton, half-polyester Hawkes T-neck sweater contains new ‘cut lines’ for an improved fit.
Jerome half-zip and Pilou round neck pullovers marry 50% extrafine wool with 50% polyacrylic for on and off-course versatility, continuing Oscar Jacobson’s ‘best of both worlds' approach.
There are also three distinct colour schemes on offer this time around to reflect the different requirements and personalities of golfers everywhere.
The Performance theme attempts to create ease of use whilst still endorsing an active lifestyle, and is suitable both on and off the course.
The Urban theme is a celebration of Oscar Jacobson’s century of experience in high-end fashion tailoring, whilst also reflecting current trends in high street men’s fashion.
The Dynamic theme is intended for those who prefer to make a statement with their clothing, as highlighted by the bolder designs and colour palette used.
