The annual mack daddy of all golf trade shows is rapidly approaching. Here are some of the fashionable products the GolfThreads team plans on taking a closer look at while trekking the aisles this year.
New and improved for 2019 is the ‘Go-In Color Series’ belt that features set screws instead of pins for added strength and durability, as well as a satin nickel beveled edge on the buckle. The buckle flips down to reveal a hidden magnetic ball marker. Pebble grain leather belts are available in cognac, deep navy, black, tobacco, smoke grey, and winner white.
The women’s ‘Innovator’ golf shoe with interchangeable saddles blends a classic saddle shoe design with modern comfort. The patent-pending hidden channel technology allows golfers to swap out saddles in less than a minute with different pieces that coordinate with their outfits or with saddles customers can custom designed themselves.
Inspired by sprinters flats, the Ecco S-Lite is the company’s lightest leather golf shoe to date. S-Lite for men and women blends engineering and comfort to ensure an ultra-light on and off course experience. Two-tone Yak leather uppers lined with a soft textile provide natural water repellent and breathable properties, with the outsole offering grip and flexibility.
The women’s print tops have a patented technology called IceFil that cools the skin 3 to 5 degrees at the onset of perspiration allowing you to continue outdoor activities for longer periods of time. Tops also have underarm mesh treatments promoting additional breathability, UPF 50 Sun Protection plus wicking and anti-microbial features.
The 6 oz tartan wrapped flask filled with your favorite beverage is a stylish accessory for the 19th hole. The tartan wrapped flask is made to order and can be customized with a leather label or your tartan of choice.
Jones Golf Bags
The new Utility Scout duffle bag is made with heavy-duty fabric to transport your belongings to and from the clubhouse, gym or weekend travel.
Holderness & Bourne
‘The Ward’ jacquard knit sweater (named after the rakish legendary amateur golfer, Harvey Ward), is very on-trend with its crewneck style. The diamond knit texture sweater has a modern tailored fit with stretch so it looks as great on the course as it does with jeans and a button down.
PrimaLoft Cross Core vest is made with Aerogel – an insulation technology originally developed for NASA – which has a highly porous, low-density structure that forms a temperature barrier to lock out warm or cold air. It’s ultra lightweight, windproof, packable and offers a full range of motion. The vest is also reversible so you get a twofer.
The ‘Alter Ego’ print cap picks up last year’s apparel trend of all-over micro prints. The hat is available in stock print designs and a full custom logo version.
Part of its new ‘3-D Warmth’ capsule releasing in fall, the heavyweight mixed media full-zip jacket features a bonded knit body, polyester/spandex sleeves, and a thermal fleece lining. These three materials create a super warm piece that still allows for a full range of motion.
The Herringbone canvas belt is made from a woven blend of cotton and polyesters, finished with a vegan leather backing. As the name implies, Slidebelts can be adjusted at any time creating the perfect fit. It also comes with a 12-month warranty and can be customized up to a 48-inch waist.
Under Armour Eyewear
New ‘Tuned’ golf sunglasses feature a proprietary tint formula for heightened contrast in bright conditions that offer exceptional clarity. The technology improves depth perception and enhances the definition of the fairways and greens to better plan shots and read putts while protecting from UV exposure.
The new ‘Vacation’ horizontal stripe polo has a polyester/Pima cotton/elastane fabric blend that offers stretch, comfort, and performance. There’s a 3-button placket with 2-button collar and a two-tone Pete the Penguin embroidered on the chest.
Women’s ‘Silver’ polo offers an edgy aesthetic with a metallic mesh sleeve detail that has branded ‘M’ elastic on the end and also features a logo ‘M’ zipper pull. Pair with the ‘Stanton’ skort that has matching silver welt back pockets.
5-pocket ‘Jackpot’ pant focuses on fabric, fit and function. The pant features a moisture-wicking polyester fabric, stretch-mesh waistband and is designed to fit and drape perfectly. The pant is available in nine colors, including a new pale pink, peacoat, white, black, orange, chocolate brown, quiet shade, surf the web, and ashley blue.
