University of South Carolina Gamecock and Clemson University Tiger Paw Logos Featured on Polo Shirts and Hats
December 14, 2011, Greenville, S.C. – Officials with Southern Tide, a rapidly growing lifestyle brand of apparel that boasts exceptional craftsmanship, clean lines, fine quality and classic design, announced today that the company has released Collegiate Skipjack Polo Shirts and Hats for men and women.
The Collegiate Polo Shirt features the same quality and precision of the original Skipjack Polo, with the addition of the University of South Carolina (USC) Gamecock and the University of Clemson Tiger Paw logos embroidered on the left sleeve. The Collegiate Polo is constructed of Southern Tide's exclusive fabric, True-Vent Micro Pique™, a 96 percent cotton, four percent elasticine blend fabric that provides breathability and a slight stretch that allows for ease of motion, while still maintaining its shape. With unique features to increase its comfort, the Collegiate Polo Shirt offers durability and style with double-reinforced seams, color-matched, herringbone taping on the side vents, cross-stitched, laser-engraved buttons, a brushed cotton interior, and the signature Skipjack emblem over the chest. The Collegiate Polo Shirt is available for men and women in a variety of sizes and colors representing USC and Clemson University.
The Clemson University Collegiate Skipjack Hat is made of 100 percent cotton and features an adjustable strap for comfort. The Clemson University Tiger Paw logo is embroidered and prominently featured on the left side of the hat and the signature Southern Tide emblem is embroidered on the front of the hat. The Clemson University Collegiate Skipjack Hat is available in colors white and pink. USC Collegiate Skipjack hats will be available by December 31.
Customers can purchase Southern Tide products in more than 500 fine retailers in more than 42 states across the country, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, as well as on Southern Tide’s online store at southerntide.com.
