All golfers appreciate apparel that’s wearable anywhere, whether that’s on the course or on the go. That’s why Adidas have designed a new collection of products – what they call their Go-To line – to show how they have evolved the golf uniform through versatile and more sustainable options that don’t sacrifice on performance.
At the heart of our new collection is the Go-To Polo. Like all the pieces in the range, it’s specifically designed to be worn on the go. With more people of all ages picking up the sport and anticipating the trend for more versatile apparel, we didn’t want the simple idea of “having to wear a polo” keep people from heading to the course. So, we created this polo by utilizing materials and colours that give it a wear-anywhere mentality but made sure that it would still perform the way a golfer would expect.
Under the rich, cotton-like handfeel of the men’s Go-To Polo, Adidas put in a set-in raglan cut in the back for a sportier design that also helps increase mobility and range of motion. They also included their newest innovation in the form a flexible collar construction. That means that the Go-To Polo can easily be pulled over one’s head when fully buttoned – like a t-shirt – without ever losing its shape. The women’s Go-To Polo comes in both a short-sleeve and sleeveless option and is highlighted by an open placket construction for easy wear, and side slits for additional versatility. All of the Go-To Polos offer UV 50+ sun protection.
Beyond the versatile silhouettes, what really makes this polo unique is that each is PRIMEGREEN; made with 89 percent recycled content to help END PLASTIC WASTE and continue progress towards Adidas’ goal of using 100 percent recycled polyester in all their products by 2024.
“This polo, and the Go-To Collection as a whole, is a huge positive step forward for golf fashion,” said Shaun Madigan, global director of apparel, adidas Golf. “It’s very rewarding to be able to introduce versatile options that provide both style and function that golfers want and need, while also giving them a sense of satisfaction every time they put these pieces on before heading out to the first tee – or wherever the day takes them – that they are doing something good for the world and our environment.”
