Adidas and Malbon Golf have debuted The Crosby Collection, a capsule apparel line inspired by the late singer Bing Crosby’s Clambakes and that era’s fashions. The Bing Crosby Clambake was the precursor to what is now known as the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Taking design cues from the early days of the Clambakes, adidas and Malbon Golf put together a range of products for men and women with modern takes on the silhouettes that defined an era. For men, the collection includes button-down polos, pleated trousers and shorts, crewnecks, a lightweight sport coat and a cardigan. The women’s capsule contains a color-blocked dress with an argyle print, polos and a culotte pant. All products feature technology and materials from adidas.

“We wanted to create pieces based on the rich catalog that golf fashion gave us in the ’30s and ’40s along with what we saw in old photographs from Bing’s famous Clambakes,” says Dylan Moore, creative director, adidas Golf. “The entire collection is an ode to what golf and fashion became at that time in history but also celebrates how those same characteristics and fashion styles from that time still live on with golfers today.”

“With this collection, we wanted to pay tribute to the essence of golf and fashion by taking old silhouettes and modernizing them,” says Stephen Malbon, co-founder, Malbon Golf. “It was an honor to create a collection inspired by the legendary Bing Crosby. His iconic Crosby Clambake was a perfect celebration of the timeless connection between style, sport and camaraderie that reflects our brand’s ethos.”

“The Crosby Family is so grateful to work with the adidas and Malbon teams in developing this incredible line of sportswear,” says Harry Crosby, Bing Crosby’s son. “With the line’s casual performance wear being especially reminiscent of what dad wore, it truly sustains the recognition he had for sports and the golfing world.” 

In addition to the key pieces in the collection, adidas and Malbon will include a checkered anorak, a T-shirt in two colorways featuring the iconic clam decanters that were gifted to all amateur participants in Crosby’s Clambakes and a five-panel hat. adidas will also include two limited-edition footwear offerings as part of the collection with a specially designed Stan Smith Golf model as well as the new MC87 that mixes performance with style.

The Crosby Collection will be available in limited quantities and only on, the adidas app, and at select adidas and Malbon Golf retail stores.
