In addition to Sligo’s performance golf shirts, the Fall 2011 collection also features newoptions in coordinating pants and shorts that golfers can’t find anywhere else.

Sligo’s proprietary digitile patterned shorts and pants also make a return in the Fall collection with 3 new color options – Metal Digitile, Miami Digitile and Smoke Digitile. Digitile is a Sligo design inspired by Moroccan tile dating back to the 14th century. The Digitile art form flourished during the Hispano-Mouresqe era and is still very popular in Spanish and Portuguese architecture. For golfers who opt for the solid but bold look in their shorts and pants, Sligo offers 6 new color options—City Blue, Electric Blue, Metal, Miami, Mint and Sligo Green— designed for pairing with their tops. All of Sligo’s flat front straight cut pants and shorts feature form-fitted construction and a proprietary blend of 96% polyester and 4% lycra.
