(Dalby, Sweden) Abacus Sportswear, Official Supplier to The 2013 European Solheim Cup Team, has designed match outfits focused on performance and comfort for the challenging climate at Colorado Golf Club, Parker, USA.
Commenting on the practice day outfits, Chris Mattsson, designer at Abacus Sportswear, said: “We worked closely with European Team Captain Liselotte Neumann to ensure each garment combines the benefits the players want, with the climate control requirements for Colorado in August.”
As in previous years, Sunday’s match outfits are Top Secret. So watch this space for the big reveal on the day!
Team Europe’s practice day wardrobe includes the following abacus® garments:
(From top to bottom and left to right)
Abington knitted polo – this collared top is made from 100% cotton and is ideal for a fresher morning
Milano pullover – made with 100% merino wool, the yarns used in these garments are subject to stringent quality tests and sourced from carefully selected farms that adhere to sustainable production processes and comply with global organic textile standards.
Ferndale ruggers – with long sleeves or sleeveless options, these collared tops offer high levels of elasticity, facilitating both movement and comfort.
Gorce polo – this garment’s technical Drycool™ fabric provides optimal wicking capabilities and added protection against the sun’s UV rays.
Emy polo – this short-sleeved top provides good stretch for the utmost freedom of motion.
Cleek trousers (and shorts, far right in black) – are part of the Drycool™ range and contain smart anti-crease technology, which makes them ideal for a full day on the golf course. The garment’s quick-drying properties also mean golfers don’t need to change to waterproofs in light showers.
Digby reversible shorts – inspired by the abacus® Spring/Summer 2013 collection, these shorts enable golfers to “get more out of their wardrobe”.
