I’m happy to help support new golf brands and entrepreneurs. Here’s your chance to do the same with Father’s Day just around the corner. Check out some Player2 apparel.
On the left side of the photo above is the Player2 “3-Putt” polo. I must admit that I would normally shy away from any golf product whose name implies something bad, but we’re going to let it slide… this time. The 3-Putt is a performance polo with a classic fit and 4-way stretch. The polo employs active wicking to pull moisture away from the player and help it quickly evaporate. The polo keeps the player cool (physically) with “brrr Triple Effect Cooling. It was 96 degrees here today, so I need a bunch of that brrr Triple Effect NOW!
On the right is a classic T for apres golf. The fabric is mega-soft due to a tri-blend of fabrics. I dig chilling out in this one. Sizes run from small to XXL and there are four available colors.
Finally in the center is the Trucker Mesh Hat… er, a “lid.” I dig trucker lids. Sizes available for adults and kids.
Best of luck to Player2. May your birdies, and your sales be plentiful.
I may not be able to swing a golf club with two bad shoulders at the moment, but I can sure wear apparel like a mutha. I’m excited to debut a new apparel brand today, Rhoback. Rhoback is performance activewear company based in Charlottesville, VA. Here are a few of their offerings, currently in the rigorous HOG evaluation period.
Game Day Polos
I’ve got two Rhoback Game Day polos to test out. Of course I’ve got a red and white for my Utah Utes, plus a neutral gray that will match with just about anything.
Foghorn 1/4 Zip
For the fall (not now, it is 100+ degrees) I’ll be ready with the Foghorn 1/4 zip long sleeve pullover.
I’m currently testing out the polos now. The fabric is super soft and comfortable. When the temps start to drop, I’ll throw the pullover into the review queue as well.
Stay tuned for the full review of the Game Day polos soon.
I can’t make birdies if my panties are all in a bunch. You can quote me on that. Seriously. I’ll do just about anything (other than practice or take lessons) to improve my scores. To that end I’ve been “testing” some new boxer briefs from a company called Warriors and Scholars. Let’s check them out.
I would have posted a picture of myself in these boxer briefs, but I’m too busy right now to field calls and emails from modeling agencies or inquisitive ladies. 🙂
Above are the “Daniel” model boxer briefs from Warriors and Scholars. They’re made from 93% polyester and 7% spandex. No cotton, which is good. Not a cotton fan for just about any apparel item, especially items so “intimate,” if you will.
The poly/spandex blend makes the undies not only super soft and comfortable, but moisture wicking as well. And let’s face it, I have enough to sweat over when I have a 3-footer for birdie to keep myself from losing a $2 bet.
The materials stretch and move as needed.
Lastly the “spacious pouch” provides room for comfort, but proper support to make sure everything is in the right place. Nothing worse that trying to smash a drive on a tight hole when things aren’t in the “right place.”
Sizes run from small to double-extra large and the patters are very fun and unique. There are 24 different patterns to choose from.
Warriors and Scholars offers subscriptions. You can get one to three pairs delivered to your door per month. One pair per month runs $12/month. I should do the 3-pairs package which runs $30/month. In a few months I could replace all my old boxers. There’s a pair of my old boxers at the Smithsonian right now being carbon dated to determine their age.
In for review are some very nice trousers from The Savile Row Company, a family run business in the heart of London’s Savile Row, where some of the world’s finest tailors are based. I’m thrilled to put the Savile Row Men’s Grey Classic Fit Chinos through the HOG test battery. Check them out.
My photo doesn’t do them justice. I’ve tried them on and they’re super comfortable and the fit is just right.
- Classic fit, pleat front, zip fly
- 98% cotton; 2% elastane
- Improved fabric giving more comfort
- 2 pleats at front, fits through thigh with a slightly tapered leg
- Slanted pockets; jetted buttoned back pockets
- Machine washable at 40°C (Hey, they’re from London. That’s 104 Fahrenheit)
I’ll be testing these trousers out on and off the course and posting my full findings soon. Stay tuned.
“What are you doing in there?” the lovely bride inquired. “Counting the skulls on my new shorts,” I replied.
Hats off to Tattoo Golf for shaking up the golf apparel world and making it more fun and less stuffy. Love the rock-&-roll attitude and of course, based on the HOG logo, I love skulls.
Lucky 13 ProCool Golf Shorts
Speaking of skulls, I’ve been sporting Tattoo Golf’s “skullicious” Lucky 13 ProCool Golf Shorts. I counted them up, and there are about 100 skulls on the outside these shorts, right up my alley. If you count the inner waistband, there are closer to 200 skulls.
Specs, Style, Performance
Tattoo Golf could rest on its laurels and be satisfied with making the golf shorts with the most skulls on them, but that’s not how they roll. TG isn’t just a gimmick brand. These are real “pro” level shorts. The 100% polyester ProCool fabric is super-light and comfortable and provides moisture wicking to help keep the wearer cool and dry, whether on the golf course or at at Mastodon concert. The style is 100% Tattoo Golf. 100% cool.
The shorts perform brilliantly for me on the golf course, adapting and stretching with every granny over the top dual chicken wing part of my seizure-like unfolding lawn chair golf swing. And trust me, that’s not easy to do.
Caring for these shorts is as easy Freddie Couples’ golf swing. The polyester doesn’t shrink and doesn’t wrinkle. Wear them right out of the dryer, which you can use freely.
As Tattoo Golf says, these shorts are lightweight and heavy in style. I like my style and my rock and roll heavy.
