The new Performance Knits for 2016 have a silk like feel, but are made from a micro polyester. This new product brings forth the comfort and style that golfers have expected and received from the companies cotton garments.

“Our performance knits have really taken hold since their spring of ’14 debut, and the market reaction has been very strong,” says company CEO Marshall Mancillas. ” All performance fabric is not created equal, and we made a considerable effort to fundamentally understand man-made fibers. We knew we had to offer a technical product that was commensurate with our reputation in cotton. Many variables contribute to the feel, drape and technical characteristics or performance garments, and we only offer the finest quality available-using only the best micro poly available and always blending it with generous amounts of lycra, for just the right amount of stretch and wearability. Out customers like that while much of the styling is responsive to today’s trends, our shirts still evoke a classic, timeless and refined aesthetic.”

The Spring ’16 Performance Polo’s fall into three distinct merchandise groups for 2016, including the Classic, Resort, and Desert Collections, each with it’s own unique feeling.

The Classic collection centers on the American colors of red, white and blue evoking a patriotic feel, great for the 4th of July and 2016 both an International Crown and Ryder Cup year.

The Resort collection, which includes black, white, yellow and a shade of daiquiri green, is a great way to transition into spring. The colors say that spring is finally upon us.

The Desert collection, that includes orchid purple and citrus orange, says that it is time to enjoy a season of sunshine.

“Men can wear color,” says Mancillas. ” When it’s done correctly. As a designer I am having fun going retro. It’s inspirational to look at the past and reinvent it for the present, much of the styling we see today is grounded in the look of the 70’s.

The same collections listed above are also now available in performance outerwear and in shorts. The Hogan outerwear collection is a blend of polyester and lyrca, in a weight and style for year round wear. They are offered in both a vest and a 1/4 zip model. Both designs have a classic knit detail with tipping at the neck and contrast zipper details distinguish them from the competition and allows these styles to be merchandised with the rest of the collection.

Carnoustie’s line of shorts has been expanded for spring of 2016. The solid short introduced this past year was very successful, so for 2016 a printed plaid performance short has been added for each merchandise group. The shorts have an elastic gripper waistband for comfort, and they embody the spirit of the spring season.

“Why put an ordinary Khaki short with that new polo,” says Mancillas. “Why not pair that new polo with one of our new performance shorts in that perfect shade of blue, orange or green. My job is to make the player look coordinated, but not to coordinated. That’s a skill we make look easy at Carnoustie.”

Carnoustie is carried by some of the nation’s most exclusive golf resorts, private country clubs, and retailers. For product details visit You can follow Carnoustie on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Carnoustie Sportswear in it’s 20th year.
