I've been doing this golf blog thing for awhile now and when it comes to golf apparel I've seen many companies go by the wayside. Whether it's poor marketing, bad timing or not so great product some apparel companies just don't have what it takes for that road to success.
One of those companies that seems to be doing things right including expanding their distribution in Canada is Devereux. Founded in 2013 in Los Angeles, California Devereux is truly bringing it to a different level offering men "Proper Threads". I had a chance recently to do a Q&A with the Creative Director from Devereux, Robert Brunner and from his answers you know Devereux has a great foundation. Check it out.
I was first introduced to what Devereux had to offer when I had the chance to test out a couple of their golf polos from their “Christina O Collection” the Delphine Polo in Steel/Navy/Sage and the Argo Polo in Apricot.
The three things that stood out for me with these golf shirts
1) The style is perfect both for on and off the golf course. You'll get compliments on the first tee plus later when you're having a bourbon at the bar. Color schemes and style of the golf shirt are all original.
2) The comfort and fit is amazing. When golfing this is the shirt I want to put on, the athletic fit is ideal for that Saturday round with buddies. No problem wearing these shirts out for a nice dinner with friends and family as well.
3) I've been wearing my Devereux golf shirts for awhile now and through all the washings they still retain there great color, fabric texture and perfect collars.
The Delphine - Steel/Navy/Sage
The Delphine is a modern shirt with a bold print across the chest, it brings the collection a modern flare via a unique, two-color contrasting print. A very playful and easy-going piece for the course or beach.
Argo - Apricot
Timeless, it's the collection's most detailed shirt. The Argo is a revamped version of the white collar polo, featuring a hidden button-down collar and self fabric piping -- for a sophisticated look. After 18 holes, you're ready to sit down at a five-course dinner in this classic shirt.
I initially didn't think I'd like the apricot color of the Argo shirt but it's a great fun summer color and it's now one of my favorite shirts for golfing or just going out.
The golf shirts I tested will run you about $90-$95 USD (Now on sale $58-$61) pretty reasonable for a high quality polo.
