I’m really liking the direction golf apparel is headed with regards to styles and especially fabrics. Technology is playing a big part, allowing for apparel which is very comfortable yet performs well on and off the course.
A new player in the golf apparel industry is Devereux. Devereux’s inspiration comes from greats like Hogan and Palmer, with influences from many years old fashion styles from their era. The line is men-only.
Today’s featured garment from Devereux is the $85 Welch Polo. I’m wearing it even as I write this review… (heads to restroom to take selfie in mirror). See first photo. The pricing puts this garment at the top of the middle tier for golf polos.
Over the years my tastes have gone to 100% polyesters because they’re easy to manage, don’t wrinkle, and don’t shrink. This polo is made from 65% Pima Cotton and 35% polyester. This blend brings those conveniences together with the comfort of plush high-end cotton.
Style wise the shirt is very simple and clean looking, with a sharp button-down collar and unique pocket. Button-down golf polos are quite popular these days. The back of the collar features a small logo while the underside of the collar has the orange accent which matches the pocket.
The Welch Polo is available in three color combinations:
Steel / White / Sea Green
White / Navy / Sea Green
White / Steel / Coral (pictured)
Sizes for the Welch range from small to double extra-large.
On The Course / At The Office
Not being the skinniest person on the planet means many shirts for me don’t quite fit right. I often opt for very large sizes as I like a loose fit for comfort. The cut of this polo is actually slimming, yet still stays loose and comfy for me. The wife digs the cut, which is a bonus.
On the course the polo performs great. No binding, pulling, or restrictions in the golf swing.
Comfort, style, easy management, and most importantly performance; these are all areas in which the Welch Polo scores high marks. I’m excited to see what the future holds for Devereux. It all begins with quality and Devereux is off to a fantastic start.
