1. Tommy Hilfiger - the 2014 collection is now out "East Coast Prep" meets "West Coast Cool"
The Tommy Hilfiger Group is pleased to introduce the Spring 2014 men's and women's golf collections offered by The Fletcher Leisure Group. Drawing inspiration from the seasonal sportswear collections, Spring 2014 Tommy Hilfiger Golf embraces the brand's love of blending East Coast prep with West Coast cool.
The Collection draws inspiration from iconic coastal golf destinations like Monterey Bay, California. Pieces include modern golf classics such as polos and sweaters rendered in a palette of tonal blues and white highlighted by light blue and turquoise accents.
Key to the collections are designs that incorporate performance fabrics. TH Tech is a 100% polyester fabric used as the foundation for the golf collection to combine style and comfort with moisture wicking capabilities that keep garments dry and provide anti-odor properties essential in a technical garment. TH Comfort Tech is a hybrid cotton fabric that combines style and comfort with the functional properties required in performance driven garments. TH Cotton supplements the performance fabrics to ensure superior quality and comfort.
2. Antigua - Spring 2014 Line - Vivid Colors 35 years and going strong
"Last Spring's line was fantastic and set new sales records for Antigua. Spring 2014 looks to be even better," said Ron McPherson, president and CEO of Antigua. "The line has vivid color, sophisticated styling and luxurious fabrics...truly a winning combination."
If standard par performance on the course is 72, the standard for performance golf fashion collections internationally is Antigua's Performance 72. It's the benchmark for quality, fit, and viability of performance fabrications. It demonstrates attention to detail, highlighting just the right accents. And it's performance with style. This apparel is perfect for the course - and for off the course, as well. To boot, our proprietary Desert Dry and Desert Dry Xtra-Lite moisture management technology will wick away moisture.
Antigua's Spring '14 Performance 72 Golf Collection for men is replete with 17 shirt models, 12 outerwear tops, two shorts and seven hats.
1. Crocs - Rick's favorite
Comfortable, durable, look good.
If you like regular Crocs, the golf shoes will surely be to your liking
The Preston, The Bradyn, The Karlson
and even golf sandals like XTG LoPro
2. ECCO Golf Shoes
ECCO Street EVO One, a performance hybrid golf shoe that combines the award-winning ECCO Dynamic Traction System (E-DTS) with an array of proprietary stabilization features.
“The way Street EVO One looks, feels and plays puts it in a class by itself,” says Michael Waack, Head of Global Golf at ECCO. “It’s yet another example of the advantages that come with our foot-first approach to designing and producing premium golf shoes.”
As a key point of distinction, ECCO owns its factories and controls the entire shoemaking process – from raw materials to finished footwear. This dovetails with the company’s position as one of the world’s largest producers of luxury leathers.
Street EVO One is offered in high-grade cow leather and genuine camel leather versions, both of which include the exclusive ECCO HYDROMAX™ tanned-in treatment for remarkable weather resistance.
Showcasing an eye-catching, two-color outsole and modern classic upper, Street EVO One is part of the Spring/Summer 2014 men’s golf collection that will be worn in competition by Tour stars like Fred Couples, Graeme McDowell, Thomas Bjorn.
