Check out what Gabicci has in store for G-MAC later this year.

In an upcoming campaign with the tag line “That’s why I wear Gabicci.” – G-MAC, Gabicci will use promotional shots of the golfer in adverts and on display material, together with the following quote from Graeme: “In order to play well, I have to be totally comfortable on the course. It’s not just about the way my clothes fit and feel, but the way I look too. That’s why I wear Gabicci.” - G-MAC
Gabicci MD Jeff Keogh, states “We have supplied Graeme with golf shirts and knitwear for over two years now, but this Autumn we are including some limited edition designs produced specifically for the British Open. I’m delighted that Graeme is enjoying such fantastic success and of course especially pleased that he chooses to endorse the Gabicci brand.”
Current designs pay homage to key original knitted styles complete with mock suede trims, together with jersey tops and polos inspired by our extensive archive photographs and original samples, all bearing the iconic gold "G". The look is "slim" with quality yarns and fabrics used throughout the collection in colours which are both rich and bright. Polo shirts are 100% cotton, whilst the knitwear is finely knitted cotton with a cashmere-like finish or high quality merino wool blends.

First launched in 1973, Gabicci fast became an underground style leader and embodied a look adopted by the "Northern Soul" scene. In the 80's the brand appeared in the early "casuals" look and was also very popular with West London's "lovers rock" community. Teamed with hopsack trouser, Gabicci and the icinic metal G quickly became the brand mark of the day.
Lately, several key music artists, style leaders and sportsmen have been spotted wearing Gabicci Vintage. The brand featured heavily in Nick Love's re-make of the 80's film "The Firm". Through this continued association with movies, TV and music, Gabicci Vintage is again the brand to be seen in.
