The autumn/winter collections from Swedish apparel maker Abacus combine functionality, design, and quality in a way that has given Abacus a very strong international presence in just a few years. The autumn/winter 2010 collection is no exception. It gets even closer to the golfer's lifestyle with a collection that looks as stylish at the office as it does on the golf course.

Abacus' autumn/winter collection is a fusion between town and country. The line offers new colors, patterns and fabric updates in conjunction with a classic color palette that includes dark sea blue, light blue, dark red, navy blue and vanilla. A new addition is the creative, urban palette created specifically for the autumn 2010 collection. It features sporty sulphur yellow and eucalyptus green along with more neutral shades of grey, white and black.

The Traigh is a sporty, softshell jacket with the face fabric in a stretch, waterproof polyester and the back fabric in poly micro fleece. The jacket has details like reflective zippers, adjustable collar, a sporty logo on the left sleeve, and contrast zip pulls. It is warm but breathable and is waterproof tested to 2,000 millimeters of water-proofness and 2,000 grams of breathability. The jacket is windproof but does not feature sealed seams.

The Woburn is a fashionable pullover in a cotton/merino wool blend. It features stylish and different stripes on the chest and the back, with a contrasting color on the collar and on the cuffs.

The Tadworth is a modern cotton stretch shirt in a classic cut with the right details. It features contrasting fabric at the collar and on the cuffs and works just as well on as off the course.

Designed with a technical polyester fabric that is extremely lightweight, the Cleek stretch dry cool trouser is exceedingly breathable. A unique feature is the glove grabber in the back pocket that provides added friction so your golf glove won't fall out. It is the best of innovation and comfort combined.
