“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.

Final Thoughts

As Tattoo Golf says, these shorts are lightweight and heavy in style.  I like my style and my rock and roll heavy.

Review: Antigua Paradise Golf Shorts

Summer is coming fast and I have a perfect pair of golf shorts at the ready in the Antigua Men’s Performance Paradise Golf Shorts, part of Antigua’s “Men’s Performance – 72 Spring 16” collection.

Specs

The Paradise golf shorts are made from 95% polyester and 5% spandex. These are the core fabrics in golf apparel these days and in most cases I think far better than cotton. These materials are far more durable, easier to care for, don’t shrink, resist wrinkling, and breathe much better than cotton.

One other great benefit to the materials in these shorts is the Antigua “Desert Dry” moisture wicking system. The fabric helps lift moisture off the body to the garment, where it then can evaporate. Great for summer.

Sizes/Colors

This is a seasonal offering and therefore has some limited availability. These shorts are available in six different colors. I recommend one of each.

The size range for these shorts ranges from 30-42 inches on the waist. The inseam is 10 inches.

On and Off the Course

These shorts are very light, soft, and extremely comfortable. In fact, they’re the ones I chose to wear when flying to Singapore last week. When you know you’re going to be on airplanes and in airports for 35 straight hours, you must wear comfortable clothing. It tells a lot that these are what I chose for that ordeal!

On the golf course I’ve really loved these shorts.   I’m doing a lot more walking this year and need not only comfort, but the moisture wicking.  During the swing and while walking the shorts are very comfortable and move with my body, rather than resisting it.

The look and style of these shorts is classy, and matches up well with a huge portion of my gigantic selection of golf shirts and outerwear.

Conclusion

Antigua has been one of golf’s best apparel brands for years.  The Paradise golf shorts are another fine example of Antigua’s quality, style, fabrics, comfort, and performance.  I strongly recommend adding these shorts to your next apparel script.

One cannot be too prepared.  Proper prior preparation prevents piss poor performance.  I’m officially prepared for my club’s upcoming 4th of July tournament with my new Royal and Awesome American flag golf shorts.  Just look at these beauties.

These shorts feature a great graphic pattern, the flag of the greatest country in the world. Sorry England. Another neat feature is an included divot tool and a place on the side of the pants to put some golf tees (pictured).

My only question so far in these stars and stripes shorts is, “where do the batteries go?”
