Here’s a first look from a company I’ve yet to blog about, State and Liberty. I’m putting “The Allen” Heathered Charcoal Tech Polo in play for the first time.

The Allen – Retail $78

The Allen Heathered Charcoal Tech Polo is a perfect addition to any wardrobe. Made with a blend of polyester and spandex, it provides both comfort and a perfect fit. The heathered charcoal color gives it a modern, sleek look that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. The shirt also features a non-iron, moisture-wicking fabric that helps keep you cool and dry throughout the day. Overall, The Allen is a versatile and stylish piece that is perfect for any occasion, from the office to a night out on the town.

The fabric of this garment is super soft. I’m excited to try it out. First “testing” will be tomorrow. We’re snowed-in, so it won’t be on the course, but just a hang around the house and out on the town Saturday deployment.  Stay tuned for the full review after a few wear/wash cycles!

Puma Invisibonding Golf Polo Shirt

If you’ve thought that Geoff Ogilvy looks stylin’ and you’re not sure why, it is probably because he’s wearing Puma threads.  I’m like Geoff because I’m a happy owner of the new Puma Invisibonding Polo.  Unfortunately I’m not like Geoff in the golf swing department.  He’s got me beat by a factor of about a billion.

Invisibonding?  What the…?

Funny that I used the word threads in the previous paragraph.  I really didn’t plan this, but the threads, or lack thereof are the story with this golf shirt.  Puma doesn’t actually use threads in the seams to put this thing together.  They actually use a form of fabric welding.  Thus the term “invisibonding.”

Now let me be clear.  You can’t see threads, because there aren’t any.  The seams however are visible unlike the term implies.   The crispness and low profile of the seams gives the shirt a very unique look.

On the course

When I first got my Invisibond Polo there was still snow on the ground.  I had to wait on the review for the right conditions.  This isn’t a winter garment by any means.  It is well ventilated and very light on my skin, and not something I’d wear to insulate me and keep me warm.

Now that I’ve been wearing this baby in temps in the 80’s and 90’s I’m a happy camper golfer.  The fabric feels very soft and smooth.  My swing is not restricted at all which is very important for me as a serious golfer.

The classy yet hip syle of this polo make me look good at the 19th hole too, which is good.

Sizes and colors

This $80 Puma Invisibonding Golf Polo is available in small, medium, large, x-large and xx-large.  My unit is the white (obviously from the photos) but there is a black version and an orange one called “flame orange.”


This is one of my all time favorites in my vast collection of golf polos.  I really like wearing the Invisibonding Polo.  I’ll be working on picking up the other two available colors soon.


I have no critiques for this great golf polo.  I DO however have critiques about the Puma web site.  There is way too much fancy Adobe Flash content.  Too many animations, bells and whistles.   I don’t want to watch things fly around my screen doing flips and loops.  Get me to the stuff I want to see now!
