GolfBlogger’s Golf Apparel Gift Guide 2015 features the best of the best of the golf apparel products that I’ve received for review this past year. A lot of things show up on my doorstep from manufacturers hopeful for a mention and quite frankly, not all of them make it to the pages of this golf blog. As GolfBlogger is not my day job, I don’t have the time or desire to review bad products. Here then, are a few apparel products that I’ve tried and thoroughly enjoyed.
Antigua Golf Shirt – Reserve Model
On Amazon: Antigua Golf Shorts
Teachers’ Comments: Soft and comfortable
I tested Antigua’s Reserve golf short it on several rounds in hot, humid late-summer weather and found it both comfortable and cool. It also looks sharp, with the contrasting stitching details.
The Pebble Beach pullover is in the Goldilocks Zone: not too heavy, or too light, but just right. I’ve worn it on a couple of very chilly mornings and been warm enough, but still found it comfortable as a sunny upper fifties day emerged. Warmer than that, and I go to shirtsleeves and begin to wonder if I should have worn shorts or a lighter pair of pants.
Jack Nicklaus Muirfield Village Golf Shoes by Allen Edmonds
Teachers’ Comments: Top quality, comfortable
Respected American shoemaker Allen Edmonds and Jack Nicklaus have teamed up to produce a line of golf shoes, and the result is worthy of both their names.
Beltology makes a terrific line of woven belts in a variety of fashionable—yet manly—colors. The belts are constructed from waxed cotton, rayon or polyester and all have an elastic center
The Trakline Core Essentials Belt is one of a new breed of nearly infinitely adjustable belts based on a ratcheting system.
Teacher’s Comments: Stylish and cool
I’ve worn these Haggar Cool 18 shorts for a couple of seasons now and they’re my favorite shorts on and off the course.
Teacher’s Comments: Very Comfortable
As a teacher, and a dedicated walking golfer, I spend an inordinate amount of time on my feet. Thus, I have developed a very definite set of preferences when it comes to socks: they need to regulate moisture to keep the foot dry and blister free, fit snugly so they don’t slide and cause blisters, and have cushioning on the heel for impact.
