Styled after vintage college-issued golf bags and apparel, the Jones X Metalwood collection is an ode to student athletes
There has been an explosion of vintage looks in the golf style space over the last year. Whether you are pulling an old cardigan from deep in the closet, shopping second-hand or purchasing vintage-inspired looks from high-fashion golf brands, there are more options than ever to have fun with nostalgic golf trends in a modern way. Jones has teamed up with Metalwood, a newcomer to the golf style space that focuses on old-school looks, on a collection designed for and inspired by student athletes and prospective college golfers. The capsule includes a golf bag, hat, sweatshirt, pair of shorts and a caddie towel to correspond with the fictional colleges invented for the line called Metalwood University and Metalwood State.

A portion of the proceeds from this collection will be donated to the Southern California Golf Association's junior program—one that Metalwood founder Cole Young participate in himself before going on to play Division I golf at Loyola Marymount University. The aim of the donation is to support high school student-athletes in underserved communities in getting better access to college coaches and recruiters.
The carry bags in the collection are styled after 1990s college-issued golf bags with a single strap, a three-way velveteen divider and lightweight construction. They’re made with a durable nylon, have a front and back pocket, and the option between Metalwood University’s red and white colors or Metalwood State’s navy and yellow. Co-branded Jones X Metalwood caddie towels are also part of the capsule to match.
On the apparel and accessory side are two pairs of athletic shorts with an elastic belted waist and mesh interior featuring the fictional logos for each creative school. The logos are also found on the crewneck sweatshirts in the collection, with simple styling that truly encompasses the old-school collegiate look. Topping off the line are two foam 6-panel hats. It’s a look that needs to be paired with thoughtful vintage-inspired styling to pull off, but would look great in casual on-course ensembles.
