2015 MyGolfSpy Fall/Winter Look-Book In the vast sea of golf apparel there seems to be two primary seasons in which new designs are released: Spring/Summer & Fall/Winter. Since I started covering golf apparel for MyGolfSpy, I have struggled with how to present the brands and the latest pieces in their respective lines. Inconsistent with the spirit of MyGolfSpy, there is nothing empirical to study when it comes to clothes. There are no statistics to make sense out of nor is there a ranking structure. Readers fine little merit or interest in the traditional â€˜reviewâ€ when learning about the latest threads. There is, however, recurring feedback I hear from our readers. They want to see clothes and more specifically, complete outfits, presented on a human being. Unlike virtually everything else in golf, apparel is more about looks than it is about function. I know, I know, I get the tech fabric, fit, function, waterproofing, etcâ€¦ But at the end of the day shopping, if it doesn't look good or fit well first and foremost, it's not going in the cart. For the 2015 MyGolfSpy Fall Apparel Preview, I decided to give our readers what they asked for and wanted. Selections from 6 brands presented in complete outfits, on a person. A golf apparel â€œlook-bookâ€ if you will. Thankfully, I was able to use the best looking man I've ever met as a model. So here you have it. I talk briefly about the brands, tell you the price, and let you see how the duds look, right out on the dance floor. The size breakdown: Shirt/Outwear Top: Large Pants 34â€ Height: 5'11â€ Weight: 185 Chest: 44â€ Handsome: Yes ALIAL FITAL www.alialfital.com Alial Fital is a boutique golf apparel brand celebrating it's 5th year in business this year. Their specialty is throwing a dress shirt collar on a golf shirt. The concept is simple but the look is brilliant. Alial Fital produces their selections in lots of 100. Once that style is sold out, it's gone forever. Each piece is a limited edition. New for Fall 2015 is their Performance Pants which are incredibly water repellant and confortable. In my opinion, one of the classiest looks in golf today. Prince of Mustang Polo $89 â€“ Super Navy Performance Pants $135 BUNKER MENTALITY www.bunker-mentality.com Bunker Mentality is a brand out of the United Kingdom that took all of the tradition out of golf apparel.
