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.

I’ve been sporting some “proper threads” from golf apparel and lifestyle brand Devereux. Say hello to the Cameron Golf Polo.
Devereux Cameron polo
Devereux is an excellent golf apparel brand. Every product I’ve checked out in the line is superior quality. The fabrics, designs, and comfort in the Devereux brand are the highest quality available.
Cameron Golf Polo Details
The Cameron is a fantastic polo comprised of 96% polyester and 4% spandex. The “air-flow knit” of the fabric is a combination of two knitting styles. The knit is designed to air condition the wearer and help regulate the body temperature. The fabric provides “moisture wicking” which is the process of drawing moisture (sweat) from the body and moving it to the outside of the fabric, where it evaporates.
The polo comes in two colors, Agave (pictured) and Waves, a blue and white stripe. Sizes for the Cameron include: small, medium, large, extra-large, and double extra-large.
On the Course/On the Town
The style and comfort of the Cameron are fantastic, whether I’m crushing massive drives on the golf course, writing Blogizer Prize winning golf reviews, or coding at work. In the golf swing the shirt moves with my body, even in the strange jerky un-natural contortions my dual chicken wing granny over the top move has.
Total comfort, performance and style are why the Devereux Cameron golf polo is the real-deal. At $85 the Cameron isn’t the least expensive polo out there, nor is it the most expensive though. The Cameron is as good as any high-end polo I’ve worn.
Father’s Day is coming up. Pick up pops a Cameron and he’ll be the most stylish and cool person in his group.
