The Dawson Collection by UltraClub®
Dawson Quilted Hacking Jacket (UC708/W)
Consumers can feel free to engage in horseplay with this fabulous piece on their backs. A water-resistant finish and lightweight blown insulation make it durable in the elements. Yet, don’t think you’re solely getting a functional outerwear piece here. Designers made sure to add a princess seam on the ladies’ version for a flattering fit. Meanwhile, the men’s version gets four front pockets for extra storage space with an added esthetic.
Dawson Quilted Hacking Vest (UC709/W)
This vest offers a lot of the same functionalities as its above counterpart but with a couple key differences. Don’t worry, we’re not beating a dead horse here. Check out the heavy rib-knit collar on the men’s piece and the Peter Pan collar on the ladies’. Both offer the signature matte, water-resistant finish and the same added lightweight insulation that is also featured in the Dawson Quilted Hacking Jacket.
The Bradley Shirt (UC500W) is perfectly paired with the Dawson Hacking Jacket (UC708W). The two tops make a great combo for those breezy spring and fall days since the collarless style of the jacket won’t bunch around the neckline when the weather requires end-users to layer up.
The Bradley Shirt (UC500) with its timeless silhouette and performance fabric goes well with just about anything in the UltraClub® assortment. The new Dawson Hacking Vest (UC709), though, will give it that effortless coastal edge.
The Dawson Collection is an assortment of styles offered under the newly re-energized alphabroder UltraClub® brand. Explore the coastal-inspired collection in its entirety on alphabroder.com. You can also snag more fashion tips to help boost your apparel sales in our other Trendy Times blogs here and here. Now go ride your horse into the sunset with your newly acquired knowledge of the hacking style.
