The Asher looks way smarter and more modern than the traditional rashguard, especially in black with the black logo. The minimal, classic seam lines and the shoulder seams are set-in, not raglan (i.e. baseball-style tee). We also got rid of the Steve Jobs-esque mock turtle neck, tightened the width of the sleeves around the forearms, and added a 1mm neoprene binding at the wrists. These improvements ensure the Asher’s sleeves stay tight, even after years of paddling.
The Asher is also much more forgiving and flattering because it is designed for everybody. With a silhouette that is slightly relaxed around the torso, the Asher hangs more elegantly at your waist (like a T-shirt), instead of clinging to your belly – because nobody likes that.
