The twin demands of function and fashion have been the guiding principle behind Cross Sportswear’s apparel ever since it first launched in 1986. The cutting edge Swedish clothing brand has always placed performance at the heart of its designs, utilising highly technical fabrics that allow wearers to play – and look – their best in all conditions.
Inspired by the Swedish Men’s Long Drive Team the Spring/Summer ’17 Collection, provides complete freedom of movement and physiological support, as well as protection from the elements – all wrapped in an impeccable, clean style.
The range features a wide range of natural materials, including cotton, wool and bamboo charcoal, as well man-made fibres, such as polyester and nylon. All of the key items are made from highly stretchable and breathable fabrics designed to offer complete freedom of movement. Modern fits and clear-cut design is a strong theme in the range, which boasts a colourful palette in easy mix-and-match combinations to create the perfect golfing wardrobe.
CROSS SPORTSWEAR POLO SHIRTS
The SS ’17 polo shirt collection is Cross Sportswear’s most comprehensive yet, featuring a range of no fewer than eight different designs to suit a wide cross-section of golfers.
The Classic Polo should be a staple in every golfer’s wardrobe, featuring a traditional design in eight bold, single block colours, including red, raspberry, charcoal, navy and red. Featuring built-in UV protection (UPF 30-50+) and a moisture management system, they are quick drying, 100% breathable, and require no ironing. They are available in sizes S-XXXL, and offer a roomier, regular fit.
The Style Polo (S-XXL in plum, navy and white) boasts a more fitted design, and is ideal for those that prefer a more athletic fit on and off the golf course. Made from quick-drying PES Pique, it boasts moisture-wicking properties. Fine details include small, button-down collars.
The long-sleeve polo shirt is an increasingly popular piece, especially among those looking to avoid excessive exposure to the sun. Cross’s Style Polo LS can or be worn on its own in the sun or under an outer layer when playing in chillier conditions. Featuring all of the same performance properties as the short sleeve version, it comes in white or navy (S-XXL).
For those that like their branding big and bold, the Big Logo Polo, which features the distinctive Cross crest on the left chest, is a standout item. Made from a polyester/bamboo charcoal mix, which boasts built-in anti-microbial and drying properties, the Big Logo features a contrast placket and comes in a choice of five colours (sky, plum, green white and navy) in S-XXL.
Those that like a splash of extra detailing, the Punch Polo features broad multi-coloured stripes across the upper half of the body, while the Fade Polo, features a colour split front and back, with charcoal/white, white/blue and navy/white options. Made from 90% polyester with 10% spandex, the Fade is designed to offer a supremely comfortable fit, yet delivers the benfit of extra shape retention.
The Geo Stripe Polo is made from 55% polyester, 45% bamboo charcoal, and boasts quick drying, anti-microbial features. It offers a narrow fit and features a vertical contrast piping down the side seam, with the main body colour available in navy, raspberry, white and sky (S-XXL).
Those that really want to stand out from the crowd should look no further than the Loud and Proud Polo, which, as the named suggests, boasts edgy print designs featuring colours splashes, dots, and horizontal stripes in a range of bold colourways. Conventional? Perhaps not. Eye-catching? Certainly.
CROSS SPORTSWEAR TROUSERS/SHORTS
For the complete look, golfers should stock up on a range of Cross Sportswear trousers and shorts, which have been designed to suit all conditions and climates, while the palette matches the polo shirt range, with options in sky, green, charcoal, plum, raspberry, navy, birch, and white (shorts only).
