G-Mac by Kartel: McDowell's new golf apparel brand

January 24, 2012

Former U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell will have his own brand of apparel, G-Mac by Kartel, the company announced on Tuesday. It will be introduced later this year.

The collection will feature Pima cotton and fine wools, the company said, and will combine "the crafted style and vibrant colors that Graeme has become synonymous with," according to a news release.

"Working with Kartel on this project has been fantastic, their quality of product and people is as good as it gets, and I've worked very closely with them to develop a really nice collection that looks fantastic and maintains the modern vintage style that I have grown to love," McDowell said in the release.

Kartel is an Irish clothing brand, while McDowell is from Northern Ireland.
