The 11 coolest golf styles from the Vegas PGA Show
The 2017 PGA Fashion & Demo Experience just wrapped up and nearly 200 companies gathered to showcase their latest products. Unlike Orlando's annual PGA Merchandise Show, which focuses heavily on golf equipment and gadgets, the Vegas PGA Show puts a spotlight on golf fashion. We scoured the Show to uncover some companies, products and trends that are generating buzz in the golf style industry.
Haus of Grey Haus of Grey is creating some state-of-the-art pieces, including the three you see above. The Harrison Polo (left) is part of the brand's LIFE+ACTV line, which means it's a performance polo made from a polyester-elastane blend. The Traveler Jacket (top) combines a lightweight, water-resistant, two-way stretch material to provide all day comfort and a contemporary look. And the Thomas Polo (right) uses Matte Grey brand's newest fabric, called Liquid Cotton, which blends supima cotton with polyester.
B. Draddy These two new pieces perfectly sum up B. Draddy as a whole—handsome, comfortable and innovative. The blue John pullover is made from a cotton-and-lycra knit fabric, and its design was inspired by the sweatshirt that John F. Kennedy wore for a now-famous photo shoot for LIFE magazine in 1960. The grey jacket has a brushed wool face and a polyester mesh backing that wicks moisture away from your skin. Trimming out the jacket is a heavy-duty zipper, and pockets are seamlessly integrated into the seams.
J.Lindeberg J.Lindeberg knows how to design edgy, high-end clothing, and these pieces exemplify that. The Tour Tech Reg TX Jersey (left, $85) is a quick-dry, moisture-wicking polo, and the Big Bridge Reg TX Jersey (right, $75) is a quick-dry polo with four-way stretch. The Lane Pro Poly cap ($35) is a breathable, ultra-lightweight model, and the Slater 40 belt ($100) is made in Italy with genuine brushed leather.
