Our Sponsors

Just about all of the major club manufacturers have an associated clothing line. Many of them are corporate siblings, Adidas/Taylormade, Titleist/Footjoy, Puma/Cobra other like Nike have one name for both. Still others like Callaway have their own line of clothing made for them.

 

After reading that Perry Ellis Company has bought the Ben Hogan Company rights from Callaway and are going to revive the name, at least for clothing, and having some subsequent discussions about that, I became curious about loyalty towards a particular brand of club and if that spilled over into clothing.

 

 

I wonder why a company, who already makes clothes such as Ellis for Callaway and the PGA would spend the bucks to revive the Hogan name, without having the club line to go with it. If they have the Hogan line fo golf clubs, they can sponsor a pro from head to toe with everything they need.

 

 

How loyal are your to a particular brand in golf?

For me it's always a function of function/style/cost. I'm willing to spend money on something that *significantly* outperforms all the others. Style is the gauge of how significant that difference has to be. Cost is really a factor of timing purchases for sales or buying lesser known brands. Very few things piss me off more than buying something only to have it go on sale a few weeks later.

 

Two examples:

 

1) My golf shirts I tend to buy Champion's shirts from Target because they're just as comfortable and much cheaper than other brands.

 

2) My last two pairs of shoes have been Eccos, but I bought the first on clearance for $60, and my most recent (after BOGO + sale) for roughly $80 (Ecco Street). I can get cheaper, but Eccos are so damn comfortable and nice looking, that I prefer to spend the extra cash.

I selected the last option, though it's not exactly a perfect fit. I do care about the brand of club and clothes, in the sense the I have found certain brands that I like and others that I don't. That doesn't mean I won't look at other brands, or that I buy everything that my favorite companies make, just that I have my preferences/biases. And I'm definitely not head to toe from any given company.

Of course since we are not paid to wear or play a particular brand then we wear whatever we want. Pay me $10 Million and I will be wearing the logo in the shower, but I do wear a Titleist cap. I noticed last Saturday night at a BBQ restaurant that of the 15 men that were there, 10 wore caps, and 8 of them were golf related.

 

 

I wear, for the most part, golf shirts by George. I bought these in 2007 from Walmart for like $12 and wear them all the time and they are holding up better than my Nike's and Cutter and Bucks and some other ones, but I do wear the Titleist cap and when I wear a glove I wear Titleist or Footjoy gloves, I wore Footjoy shoes (because of comfort and durability) until this week when I switched to Ashworth Cardiffs.

 

But I do see some wearing all the same brand as their clubs. I see nothing wrong with it.

For caps it's always Red Sox for me!

 

I know there are golf brand + baseball team logo caps, but I just don't like paying $20 to advertise a golf company. I guess it's different if most of your clubs are Titleist though.

 

 

My caps are older than my clubs. :P

That sounds more like a vote for number 2. You prefer one brand over another and sometimes wear or buy that.

For caps it's always Red Sox for me!

Boooooo. In 2004 I was in Boston for work and went to Fenway for a Sox/Yanks game; it was one of the things on my bucket list. I will never forget what year it was, because it was the same year that they demolished my Cards in the World Series.

 

Back to topic. I have no loyalty; I tend to gravitate towards whats on sale or cheaper and from there it's based on looks and feel. When it comes to clothing, my wife is a Kohls-aholic, so we always get 30% off there; they carry Grand Slam , so thats what I buy. Not only is it cheap, but it looks and performs well. My entire closet is filled with GS dry-fit polos; I probably have every color and style they've made in the last 3-4 years.

For clubs, I simply use what works the best. Although some companies (like mizuno for irons) continually top my books in certain categories, I can't say that I feel any particular loyalty towards their products in other categories. In regards to clothing, I guess you could simply say that I am loyal to my mix-matched closet of price conscious clothing.

there wasnt this option in the poll so this is my vote

 

i prefer 1 brand of golf clubs and another brand of clothing.

 

my clubs are primarily Pings and for clothing i mostly wear Polo shirts from ralph lauren. i just like the fit of RL polos.

hats , belts and shoes could be anything i fancy at any point of time.

 

my girlfriend also works for a company that has staff discount from Lacoste and Ben sherman so i get my stuff from there time to time.

 

its one thing to play good, but its another to look good while playing well ;)

I choose clubs that feel right to me and my clothes I buy a lot from the thrift stores. I have found quite a few name brand items, shirts , slacks and shorts i.e., ping, calloway, foot joy, under armor and nike, etc. etc.

Sorry could not think of everything, but this was primarily to see if it made any difference to people if their club maker made clothes or not.

This has nothing to do with any particular brand but thought I should write it somewhere and its probablt not worthy of its own topic. But I own several "Moisture Wicking" golf shirts and one pair of "moisture wicking" golf pants. We had a couple of inches of rain yesterday on top of a couple inches of rain last week, so the course has standing water, actually there is water still running. Some of the bunkers were not completely drained yet. So in addition to no roll, water is every where. I decided to wear my moisture wicking pants. Thinking if I splashed water and muck on them they would dry quickly. Huge mistake. While the work great as sicking the sweat away, dispersing it so that it will evaporate, the reverse of that process is, the cuffs got wet so the moisture wicked up the leg, then the cuffs got wet again, and more moisture wicked up. And again, and again, by the time I made the turn, I was soaked from the knees down and my socks were soaked. By the time I got home it looked like I had been wading in thigh deep water. My toes are still cold from being soaking wet. The water proof shoes do not work well when the water is running down your legs.

 

 

I usually wear my Nike Storm pants when it is this wet, but decided to wear the "nicer" pants. Next time I will wear hip waders before I wear those pants when it is wet outside.

Well, by the time I finished the round my balls were soaked. And so were the tees I carried in my pocket with the golf balls.:D

 

 

Seriously, I did take my keys out of my pocket because I did not want the electric door lock thing to get wet. It was a cold and miserable day.

I honestly dont care what club or clothing I wear but I do tend to only wear Titleist Hats or Titleist/Bridgestons Large Visors. The reason being is they just fit me the best. I could care less for the brand other then the fit and quality :lol:
