Adidas, Malbon Golf, and Primary Wave are introducing a limited edition ‘Crosby Collection’ inspired by Bing Crosby’s Clambake—first started in 1937.

Adidas says it has taken design cues from the fashion present in the early days of the Bing Crosby Clambakes, creating a range of attire for men and women. For men, the special edition golf wear includes button-down polos, pleated trousers, and shorts, crewnecks, and lightweight sport coats. For women, the drop includes a color-blocked dress with an argyle print, polos with slightly wider and longer sleeves, and a form-fitting culotte pant.

“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,” adds 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 Malbon Golf Co-Founder Stephen Malbon. “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,” adds Harry Crosby. “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 of 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 of the original Clambakes, and a 5-panel hat. Adidas is also including two limited-edition footwear offerings as part of the collection. The Crosby Collection will be available on January 29 in limited quantities.
