UFL showcases new collection during Faldo Series Asia Grand Final
20 March 2012: This year, Uniting Future Legends (UFL), a bold and innovative golf wear brand, and wholly-owned subsidiary of apparel manufacturer Alpine Creations Ltd., outfitted all players of the Faldo Series Asia Grand Final in its innovative and eco-friendly apparel.
In 2010, UFL forged a three-year partnership with the Faldo Series Asia to become the sole apparel provider for the amateur golf series that seeks to nurture the region's future golf legends.
The UFL team does its part to contribute to a sustainable world by incorporating environmentally friendly and sustainable fibers into its apparel. The Faldo Series players’ shirts are produced from fabrics containing “Coolplus” and “Greenplus” yarns, which is polyester made from recycled plastic bottles, in an eight-step process. Additionally, the fabric has moisture wicking and anti-microbial (odor absorbing) attributes, which is suitable for the long duration of the tournament. UFL also provided fashionable windbreaker jackets, which are both windproof and water-resistant.
UFL unveiled its 2012 Men’s and Women’s Collections at January’s PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida, USA. \The PGA Merchandise Show is the premier golf trade show in the world, and we were excited to be a part of it for the first time," said Ashok Mahtani, group chairman of Alpine Creations. UFL apparel is currently sold online and at the pro shops across Asia, and we look forward to bringing it to the U.S. in 2012."
UFL styles were well received at the PGA Show by Green Grass and Golf Chain Retailers that visited the booth.
UFL produces golf-centric sportswear that is both functional and sleek, and an easy transition from the golf course, to casual lifestyle wear.
The direction for the Spring / Summer 2012 collection is ‘Americana’. Style and color details are reminiscent of the vibrancy of American baseball and varsity athletics.
Nostalgic color combinations include patriotic red, white and blue along with some natural color elements and key neutral items. UFL offers a diverse range of trendy sports and casual wear in wovens, knits and outerwear.
UFL has a well-represented fabric library of technical and performance textiles that add to the value of these fashionable pieces. Many of the garments offer moisture wicking, sun reflecting UV-protection and even anti-microbial management caused by perspiration build-up.
Apart from yarns produced out of recycled plastic bottles, UFL offers other apparel manufactured from sustainable and natural materials. Its coffee yarn garments, derived from recycled coffee grounds, offer quick-drying, anti-microbial and UV-protection. This is only one more of several innovative fabrics from UFL. Others include: Sorona (corn derivative)/ Fly cool nylon blends, and a premiere Pima Cotton yarn blended with polyester.
The Spring / Summer collection also has some definitive styling. The majority of the garments have movement and ventilation features such as underarm mesh, cape-backs and gussets. Special attention is also paid to fit and comfort, with the use of: drawcords on pants and jackets, inside waistband gripper tapes, pants with adjustable leg widths and mini skorts with compression bloomers.
Established in 2010, UFL - Uniting Future Legends - derives its inspiration from the energy, skill and vigor of talented young athletes and supports today’s impassioned amateurs to become tomorrow’s legends. Marrying innovative technology with fashion-forward design, casual comfort and top quality fabric,
UFL aims to create iconic styles that will be worn by budding golfers throughout the course of their career, and to shape the future of golf. To that end, UFL’s parent, seasoned apparel manufacturer Alpine Creations, proudly sponsors the Faldo Series Asia golf tournaments, where the UFL team has the unique opportunity to interact with and learn from the next generation of sports legends, and to grow a business alongside them.
