Irvine, CA - Golf apparel manufacturer Carnoustie Sportswear has introduced its Fall 2016 men's lineup of Mercerized Cotton Knits, Performance Knits, Cotton Suedes and The Mackenzie Collection of cotton outerwear.
The company has forged a reputation over the years for making some of the industry's finest mercerized cotton knits. Carnoustie has remained steadfast in its commitment to offer only the finest quality in mercerized cotton and still produces in the same factories they have been using for more than 20 years. The buttons used throughout their line-up are made of real pearl, the fabric is triple-mercerize and collars are made with several plies of yarn and contain Lycra for shape retention.
Carnoutsie says its Fall 2016 Collection features the ever evolving Mercerized Cotton Knits. Neater, more subtle jacquard patterns and tonal designs are still trending. Stripes are elegantly simple. They give the polo an updated, crisp look. Also on trend are retro designs in which a solid collar, placket, sleeves and back are contrasted with a patterned front panel body fabric. And, we continue to focus on small details that can add interest, such as contrasting button thread, contrasting colors on the underside of collars, and placket construction.
"The simplicity of the patterns with the boldness of color combine to create a collection of knits that stand out in today's crowded marketplace," says CEO Marshall 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."
Carnoustie collection of performance knits is an effort to be responsive to today's trends, that is why for Fall 2016 they are featuring chest stripes, color blocking, melange yarns and many self fabric collars. Here's a first for Carnoustie - a beautiful long-sleeve style in five wonderful melange colors. Their 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.
"We are thrilled with the continued enthusiasm that our customers have for our performance styles," says Mancillas. "Our instincts were well-founded: There is clearly a demand for performance garments that offer the wearability that today's fibers can offer, but that are styled in a tasteful, timeless fashion. There has been so much interest in this segment of our business that we have rebranded these goods under a new label. Beginning with Fall '16, these goods will be offered under the 'Carnoustie TECH' label that was designed to evoke the active, performance nature of these goods," added Mancillas.
For many years now, Carnoustie has had the reputation of offering the industry's finest fleece, having sourced these goods for more than 20 years with the same factory that simply makes the best fleece available. Thier Fall line-up has been developed around wonderful new colors, new 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," says 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 and proprietary brushing process. It is a more costly process which virtually eliminates the piling we see on lesser quality garment s 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."
