I opened a pleasant surprise package last week. It was a polo from Antigua with a sleeve patch celebrating the company's 35th anniversary in the performance apparel business. Aside from the pleasure that came from being remembered by the company, I was delighted with the shirt itself, a Men's Icon in a tonal stripe.
Antigua's roots are in the golf market, although it now holds licenses with Major League Baseball, the NFL, NBA, and hundreds of colleges and universities as well as 5,000 corporate customers. Chances are, when you see better shirts in your golf pro shop, they're Antigua. If you see a member of the Metropolitan Golf Writers Association sporting a logo shirt, it came from Antigua, too. I own a bunch of them.
