With Keegan Bradley adorning the July 2014 issue of Golf Digest, clad in Tommy Hilfiger Golf apparel, I figured it was time to review some of the new shorts and tops being offered by this iconic clothier.
If you ever go to the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando in January, you will find that about half of the 500,000 square feet that the show occupies devoted to fashion and apparel companies. There is even a runway with fashion shows happening multiple times a day.
Tommy Hilfiger has not been a household name as a designer closely linked to golf apparel. That is something more suited to some of the major club manufacturers such as Puma, Nike and TaylorMade Adidas. It has been a brand associated with high quality and superior styles and their new golf collection certainly lives up to expectations. You can see the clear lines, bold color contrasts and functional embellishments that have long been associated with the brand; these pieces are stylish to wear both on and off the course.
The golf polos show fashion sensibility; they’re made from lightweight cotton and featuring three-button collars, and contoured fitting that Hilfiger has always been known for. The company has found a way to incorporate the ever-so-popular moisture wicking fabric into its line, helping golfers remain calm, cool and dry. Styles include both solid colors and tri-colored stripes, all of which offer a classy look and the popular Tommy Hilfiger flag.
Golf shorts are also available in lightweight cotton aw well as linen. The simple, straight lines and breathable fabrics used to make these garments make for a comfortable day on the golf course. Choose from traditional colors such as white, gray or khaki or go wild and choose their Bermuda golf short, a plaid design made out of the latest moisture wicking fabric.
Tommy Hilfiger Golf apparel still has a preppy look to it and there is nothing wrong with that. This clothing line exudes style and class and will certainly garner some looks on the course. You’re not going to stand out like a sore thumb or like Rodney Dangerfield in Caddyshack, but you will be noticed.
Tommy Hilfiger Golf apparel can be purchased at finer department stores such as Macy’s and Dillard’s. For more information or to get a better idea of the golf collection, visit their website, www.usa.tommy.com.
