A Stylish Guide to Golfing

We have been feeling the game of golf lately. Maybe it’s the iconic courses in Scotland with serious whiskey bars attached or Jason Dufner’s naughty ass pat when he won the PGA.   Regardless, we have found some brands we would like to share that are bringing a sense of style back to the links.

Golf head covers can go from the ridiculous (R2D2 plushies) to the sublime (monogrammed) so we were happy to hear about Seamus Golf out of Portland. Their fine woolen accessories are made with traditional Scottish clan tartans, Harris Tweed and Pendleton fabrics. They even make the head covers for the Yale golf team and the British Open. Woot! Each cover is hand made and is lined with quick-drying, lightweight industrial outdoor fleece. Seamus has been rolling out some great looking ties too and while we are big fans of tartan, please don’t match your head covers to your outfit.

Another Portland based brand is Jones Sports, which is a 42 year old brand that just got a sweet little polishing up. In 1971 the Jones bag launched to much fanfare as a functional and streamlined bag that was carried by every high school and collegiate golfer for years. The company has always stayed true to its origins and the Original Jones comes with a single strap, signature twisted handle, two zipper ball pouch and exterior umbrella sleeve. There are also limited edition bags rolling out and our favorite is the waxed cotton (dare we say Filson!) bag that looks sharp with your tartan head covers. Just sayin’.

And on the sartorial front, the boys over at Bonobos launched their own line of golf pants back in March called Maide (Gaelic for ‘club’). The collection mixes golf’s traditional fashion with modern silhouettes and fabrications to create a heritage feel. Inspired by the style of golf icons such as Chi Chi Rodriguez and Arnold Palmer, the pants include a unique scorecard print in the pocket liners, grip insert in the waistband to keep your shirt tucked in and a 2” zipper at the hem to allow you to adjust the break of your trouser over your shoe. All in breathable and moveable performance fabric.

The 10 Best Packable Jackets That Every Serious Outdoorsman Should Own

A great packable and lightweight jacket can be one of the best items in your backpack for a number of reasons. From unexpected rain showers and a drop in cooler temperatures to a makeshift pack cover or even a pillow in a pinch, packable jackets are always good to have on hand. That's why you should have several different kinds of packable jackets in your closet waiting to be packed for your next adventure.

Depending on where you live or when you plan to explore the outdoors, there are three kinds of jackets you should pick from. The first is a packable shell that is lightweight and just right to keep you dry during wet weather. The second is a down jacket with some sort of stuff sack to keep you warm when the temperature dips. Finally, the last kind of jacket that is nice to own and keep on hand is a combination of the two — a thermal waterproof packable jacket. Fortunately, we've rounded up the best options on the market at the moment all of which are worth taking along on any adventure.

VRST Is the Best Alternative to Lululemon’s Athleisure We’ve Seen So Far
vrst athleisure line 2021 q1

This is not a story about Lululemon. It is a story about VRST, a Dick's Sporting Goods exclusive line of athleisure clothing, including commuter pants, joggers, tees, hoodies, and other easy-wearing lifestyle pieces that you'll want to wear every day, especially when the occasion calls for something that both breathes well and looks put together. But it's about Lululemon in the same way that the subtweet you sent was really about Drake even if you never mentioned Drake specifically. (We all knew who you were talking about.) Let me explain.

VRST is about Lululemon even if it never mentions Lululemon because Lululemon crushes with its ABC Pant, which stands for Anti Ball Crushing and, as its name suggests, is very comfortable. I have no fewer than five pairs of them, and I've owned more because they look like a pair of khakis but feel like a pair of running shorts. And in my home in the South, where the interminable summers are trying to crush my family jewels for six months out of the year, minimum, they are a godsend. Playing golf? Yes. Attending a Sunday service? No doubt. From date night to work event, they are so versatile and comfortable and flattering that I bought them in every color. To date, my only complaint is that, after repeated wears, they can retain the stink of old sweat the same way your workout tees can hold past funk. Lululemon's essentials, from tees to pants to polos, are guy favorites the world 'round, which is quite an accomplishment for a company previously synonymous with women's workout tights.
