PING – The Spring-Summer 2021 men’s performance apparel collection, unveiled
March 18, 2021 – PING has announced details of its Spring-Summer 2021 men’s apparel range, which combines the latest premium fabrics with contemporary styling, to enable golfers to both look and play their best.
Engineered with a distinct focus on performance, comfort and style, the collection is inspired by a number of standout designs that feature clean, angular and linear patterns, offering greater choice to the golfer. This is complemented bythe innovative Sensor fabric technology platform from PING, which is designed to ensure every garment is specifically engineered to respond to the body’s requirements and demands of the game.
The range features three distinct colour palettes. The ‘Refined Resort’ colour story provides both statement colours and a technical edge, while the ‘Coastal Tides’ palette features three aqua blue shades for a fresh, refined and contemporary on-course look. The ‘Heritage’ palette sees the continuation of key shades to create a core colour language that transcends the seasons.
The collection is highlighted by the Frequency Polo, which takes inspiration from the sound frequency made by the original PING 1-A putter – the iconic putter model engineered by PING founder, Karsten Solheim, in 1959. A Jacquard pattern to the front of the shirt replicates this sound wave and creates a modern and completely unique design that celebrates the PING brand heritage. This refined and contemporary polo also features a large linear Eye mark logo, inspired by the circular graph created during a golf swing.
Also new for SS21, the Etten, Staton, Romy and Holten polo shirts are all engineered with SensorCool technology to provide moisture-moving comfort in all conditions.
Available in Greystone Multi or Navy Multi, Etten features a Herringbone Jacquard pattern to the front body, while Staton is a yarn-dyed, engineered stripe polo that comes in a choice of Greystone Multi or Sky Grey Multi.
Romy is available in three fresh colourways – Marine Blue, Silver or Snorkel Blue – and is designed with a tonal geometric camo pattern throughout. Holten is a placement-print performance polo that comes in four distinct colour options: Greystone, Pacific, Navy and White.
Inspired by the impact sound of the original PING 1-A putter, the Frequency polo shirt features a premium Jacquard pattern of this unique soundwave. A concealed placket ensures the pattern remains uninterrupted across the chest and a concealed button-down collar continues the clean look. Also featuring a large Eye mark logo on the reverse shoulder, the shirt is engineered from SensorCool yarns to ensure golfers remain cool and dry. Sensor Platform: SensorCool. Fabric: 100% Polyester. RRP: 75€.
A performance polo shirt with a twist. The Etten features a contemporary interpretation of a classic herringbone pattern. A stand-out, contrast colour rib under placket, concealed button-down collar and solid colour arms and back body create a modern aesthetic. Engineered from SensorCool fabric, it provides comfort in play, with moisture-movement and quick-drying stretch properties. Sensor Platform: SensorCool. Fabric: 100% Polyester. RRP: 70€.
A yarn-dyed, engineered polo shirt. The chest stripe design provides highlights of this season’s colour, set against a wearable and versatile classic-coloured base. Constructed in SensorCool fabric, with added stretch fibres, the Staton is engineered to keep golfers comfortable, cool and dry, both on and off the course. Sensor Platform: SensorCool. Fabric: 92% Polyester, 8% Elastane. RRP: 70€.
Designed to make a statement on the fairways, a tonal Jacquard in a geometric camo pattern creates a stand-out look. A contrast rib under placket ties in with the PING Eye logo on the shoulder. Outstanding technical performance comes from the SensorCool fabric with moisture-movement and quick-drying stretch properties. Sensor Platform: SensorCool. Fabric: 100% Polyester. RRP: 65€.
The Holten polo features a placement print to the chest, inspired by linear and angled shapes. Using SensorCool fabric to wick moisture away from the body, the Holten is engineered for comfort, while also providing an on-trend style statement from its modern, graphic alternative to the traditional chest stripe. Sensor Platform: SensorCool. Fabric: 100% Polyester. RRP: 55€.
