Over the years, I have been on the hunt for the best golf shirt. I know that many golfers default to big name brands, but there are also many independent companies that make better products. After several visits to the PGA show and tons of tests on the course, I've got a good list for you.
In my opinion, all these brands offer a great combination of superior clothing as well as design features. I play most of my golf on Long Island. We often have moist conditions in summer – so each company listed has passed a performance test. If you want to know more about them, I will link to their websites as well as the in-depth reviews that I have written.
Linkol is my go-up apparel brand because I can wear their clothes at the golf course. My closet sells pretty much everything, but on the golf course, I particularly like it Anza Drytech Polo. It is made of super-soft performance cotton that can be worn in any condition. Additionally, the design can easily be worn in a casual or work setting. He has also got plenty of options from other polo options.
When I first tried Rhoback's signature performance polo last year, I was extremely impressed with its design, comfort and fabric quality. Their blend of polyester and spandex is perfect for a hot summer day, and it almost feels like you haven't worn anything. I often reach for myself Fairway boy polo When the temperature is rising. This small brand based out of Virginia is developing rapidly, and they have done a great job expanding their line with new designs.
Jordan Sack first got the idea for Tillering Etiquette Polo several years ago when he was working in a summer internship in New York City. On Friday, he was able to wear business casual attire, but did not feel his golf poles were appropriate. While golf shirts would have been more comfortable because of their clothes – logos, bright colors, and ill-fit were not appropriate for the office. Hence a seed was planted. Why not try and make a polo that incorporates performance garments used in golf clothing?
After several trials and tribulations, Jordan completed his design. Tillering Etiquette Polo There is a versatile polo that you can wear pretty much anywhere, but it also includes the performance clothing that golfers want. This is one of my favorite golf shirts, but also looks great in casual situations. Very impressive for a 27 year old man who has done it all by himself!
Andrew and David, co-founders of RedWanley, got the idea for their clothing brand after graduation. They were both college athletes who were still active and wanted to make polo to suit the needs of their own demographic. Over the years, he did a ton of research and testing to find better clothes for big apparel brands.
He now has a thriving business, and I like a couple of his golf shirts that I tried. They offer a variety of designs (including pre-first) Pull on golf shorts) With many premium clothing options that can stand just about any situation.
Out of Minnesota, the Swannese are a group of people who make golf shirts for a smaller, more casual demographic. In just a few years, he has built an impressive network of golf shops selling his products, and his brand is closing. All their clothing is reasonably priced, but they do not skimp on the material. In addition, they have found a variety of designs that are tapping into the latest trends. If you don't want the same old golf polo, give them a look!
Out of Austin, Cricut is one of the most successful independent clothing brands. A few years ago, co-founders Hobson and Billy wanted to create the perfect polo, reminiscent of some of the classic designs that had disappeared. His original product, The Players Shirt, exploded and he quickly got the recognition name. I like their polo a lot because it treads the line between dirty, casual and formal, without crossing it deeper than before. It is now available in many different fabrics, including a performance mix.
At the PGA show a few years ago, I walked into the booth performing the task and realized their shirt. They were remarkably soft and light, so I asked what they were made of. They told me that it was bamboo, of which I was unaware it could be used to make golf shirts. It turns out that his family business was rooted in the apparel world for years. When the toss was first discovered about bamboo, they were surrounded by its performance characteristics, but found it challenging to work with. After years of development, they were able to correct a unique blend that was softer than cotton without the need to add chemicals for performance characteristics.
I got a little thrilled with their line and they got a bunch of their golf polos, plus athletic apparel. It is incredibly soft, light, stretched, and lasts perfectly on those hot summer days where sweating becomes an issue.
