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 ‘review” 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, etc…  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 “look-book” 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 34”

Height: 5'11”

Weight: 185

Chest: 44”

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.

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.  Their unique look is always flashy and slim fitting.  Just as you would expect from an apparel brand across the pond.  Bunker Mentality is a fun addition to an Americanized wardrobe.

GALVIN GREEN

www.galvingreen.com

 

Galvin Green is an undisputed king of golf outerwear.  The Swedish apparel brand is about as respected as they come in golf apparel.  Their shirts and pants follow the lead and dominate in feel, fit, and function.  You know their jackets, now give the other selections in their line a close look.

LIZZIE DRIVER

www.lizziedriver.com

 

I rarely see women's golf apparel covered in the online golf community.  Lizzie Driver is a female specific line, and offers classic cuts and colors suitable for the country club or the office catering to ladies age 30 and up.  Lizzie Driver is a premium line that is really well thought out and designed.

Raven Polo $98 – St. Sophia Skort $136

NIKE

www.nikegolf.com

 

The behemoth in Oregon is a big box brand that always produces high quality and technical fabrics.  Last year, Nike said that they are focusing on the technical side of their apparel and continuing to innovate around the movement of the golf swing.  If you pick something up from Nike Golf, chances are you're going to like it.  If there is anything you can expect from Nike is that it will be consistently good.

QEDStyle_logo.jpg

Q.E.D.

www.qedstyle.com

 

QED is a brand that is quietly going about their business making some of the coolest apparel in golf.  Their focus has always transitioned away from the golf costume look.  You can pick up any piece from the QED line and wear it to work, out for a night on the town, and yes, even on the golf course.  Trendy, stylish, and functional.  Their pants?  Some of the most comfortable in the game, pick up a pair and you wont be disappointed.

Very classy as always.

 

Can you comment on the fit of the waist size and legs on the pants?  I've tried a few brands from across the pond and I've had to size up considerably compared to my usual fit in jeans or shorts.

Hahaha you loved doing this and you know it!

 

Great read and interesting info!

 

Expected to see a little more outerwear rather than short sleeved (super short sleeved) polo's.

Ha! Yes it was enjoyable! Who better though?

 

Brian, yes the Bunker pants fit a little more fitted/snug through the legs for sure. However, the waist is dead on, no issues there. Having said that, I really believe I am a 33" waist but most brands only come in 34, so that might be a little skewed.

That's a nice post. I'm an older guy and not that much into all the latest golf fashion. I always dress nicely at the course and for the season. Most of the newest latest golf threads are age inappropriate for me. Under 30? Go for it. I'm understated and conservative in my clothing. Classy. Not bright and flashy. I also try and avoid as many logos as possible. Certainly wouldn't wear a shirt with a cutesy paragraph embroidered on my chest. LOL

I mean could you guys envision ole Plaid dressed like Fowler or Rory?

Very nice, a little too conservative for my tastes, but your starting to move in that direction!

I too am a bit older. I have reviewed most of these brands. Given your preferences you should check out QED Style. No big logos, pants that fit right and solid colored shirts (the plaid is just one style).
