This cool new Adidas x Malbon collab pays homage to Bing Crosby
As the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am makes its debut as a Signature Event this week, complete with its strongest-ever field, you, fans of the historic tournament can enjoy an ultra-cool capsule collection of shoes, apparel and accessories that pay homage to the tournament’s old-school origins.
“The Crosby Collection” — a collab between Adidas Golf and Malbon — is inspired by the original Crosby Clambake in 1937, Bing Crosby’s famous get-together for pro golfers, celebrities, and musicians.
“With this collection, we wanted to pay tribute to the essence of golf and fashion by taking old silhouettes and modernizing them,” Malbon Golf co-founder Stephen Malbon said in a press release.
The collection’s vibe is delightfully vintage. The men’s pieces include button-down polos, pleated trousers and shorts, crewnecks, a lightweight sport coat and a cardigan inspired by one of the posters from one of the early Clambakes. The women’s items include a color-blocked dress with an argyle print, polos with slightly longer and wider sleeves to go with a boxier cut, and a form-fitting culotte pant.
There are also a few unisex pieces: a checkered anorak, a T-shirt featuring the clam decanters that were gifted to all amateur participants in Bing’s Clambakes, and a 5-panel hat. Shoe lovers will also appreciate two limited-edition offerings: a specially designed Stan Smith Golf model as well as the new MC87.
