John Ashworth, the father of the Ashworth apparel label (now part of TaylorMade-Adidas), has made his return to the golf apparel industry with a small, richly detailed collection under the guise of Linksoul. The Linksoul line includes luxurious cotton shirts, cotton-linen chambray shorts, and featherlight shirt jackets all making for a cool round.
The mission at Linksoul is simple: reconnect people to the soul of the game of golf. The word “linksoul” comes simply from the term “links soul”, which was an expression of the combination of virtues found through playing golf… and now sought in everything the company does.
Linksoul is more of a philosophy than a brand. It represents the life’s work of a group of people that enjoy collaborating. But more than that, they care about each other. These workers come from a long line of artists, craftsmen and golfers. Through these practices the folks at Linksoul believe they can learn the most about themselves and, at the same time, create a stylish line of golf apparel.
John Ashworth toyed with the idea of Linksoul while building Ashworth, over twenty years ago. After leaving the company that bears his name, Ashworth followed up with several new design gigs: a golf course in Scotland and a golf apparel line for Quiksilver and Fidra. Then it was back to Ashworth for another run.
All this time John Ashworth was amassing an all-star team and continued to grow and nurture the concept of Linksoul. Then in 2011, Ashworth and his team pulled the trigger; they partnered with Mark Killeen of Pima Direct, and Linksoul Club Custom Branding was born.
Linksoul Club is the world leader in custom-branded apparel for golf clubs and resorts. Linksoul Club combines the finest line of luxury clothing with a factory direct network. Each item is totally customized through course branding on hang tags and labels. Linksoul Club specializes in golf polos, sweaters, interlock and fleece crafted from rich materials like Supima cotton, Supima blended with micropoly and advanced performance fabrics featuring micropoly infused with bamboo charcoal.
Linksoul apparel is incredibly comfortable and remarkably easy to care for; an ideal alternative to 100 percent polyester clothing. Linksoul is clothing for grownups: you won’t find neon colors or high tech fabrics. No giant logos; just a classy, functional polo shirt that looks and feels great. Linksoul garments resist wrinkling, shrinking, fading and pilling while featuring precise detailing and subtle colors suitable for the golf club and everyday life. Crafted from the finest quality fabrics, the Linksoul collection is stylish and ideal for men seeking an alternative to “golf uniform” technical pieces.
