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.

All new Rolex 1908 men’s watch leans into timeless Rolex styling and we can’t get enough of it
You won't stop staring at it, but that has nothing to do with what time it is
The Rolex Perpetual 1908

The world’s most desirable watch brand, Rolex, is paying homage to its long and storied history with a new series of watches. The new Rolex watch takes inspiration from the vintage timepieces that made the luxury brand what it is today. So expect an almost impossibly slim profile, smaller dimensions than modern men’s watches, and large numbers. Another nice vintage touch is the lack of a central seconds hand, with a dedicated sub-dial being used instead.

Rolex’s main inspiration when creating the Perpetual 1908 is the original Oyster Perpetual from 1931. While its 39mm diameter may be a little more petit than the 45+ mm dive watches that have been in vogue over the last few decades, it’s actually somewhat of a compromise. Many classic men’s watches are rocking 34mm or 36mm cases.

We found those iconic Deion Sanders sunglasses, and they’re only $67
Look like Prime, stay winnin' like Prime
Deion Sanders wearing Blenders

There are a lot of things that Deion Sanders is good at: baseball, football, and coaching the latter, for instance. But one that he is excelling at off the field is promotion. Sure, he is a name and a face, and it seems like it would be easy. But when you develop your own sunglasses with a brand like Blenders, you feel the need to promote harder than usual. And now, you can snatch up a pair of these viral sunglasses yourself but don't expect them to show up on your doorstep as fast as they went viral.

Creating a viral sensation
Before his Colorado football team took the field and triumphed over rival Colorado State in a double overtime victory, his entire team showed out with their own pair of Prime 21s, the new collaboration between "Neon" Deion and Blenders sunglasses. Of course, that is never enough, as he gifted big names in sports like Stephen A. Smith (sports TV host) and Dwayne Johnson (former wrestler and football monster himself) a pair of their own to promote to their giant followings. Not to mention, another commentator called him out before the game for wearing glasses in interviews. We're not saying it was orchestrated, but the timing was perfect.

ZENITH Watches DEFY Extreme Carl Cox edition lands September 25, limited to 100 watches, priced at $30,100
There are only 100 pieces AND you get to meet Carl Cox
ZENITH Defy Extreme Carl Cox watch

Luxury watch enthusiasts, mark your calendars! ZENITH is set to release a horological marvel that's bound to send ripples through the world of timekeeping. The DEFY Extreme Carl Cox edition from ZENITH watches, a limited masterpiece, is slated to land on September 25. With only 100 pieces available and priced at a sumptuous $30,100, this timepiece is a tribute to both precision and fashionable aesthetics.
A fusion of craftsmanship: The ZENITH DEFY Extreme Carl Cox Edition
ZENITH's collaboration with Carl Cox, an ambassador for the brand, has given birth to an extraordinary creation. At the heart of this men's watch beats the most rugged and fastest 1/100th of a second chronograph, setting the tempo for accuracy that is second to none. But this watch is not just about attention to detail; it's also a nod to Carl Cox's musical heritage. The design takes cues from his favorite set of turntables, seamlessly blending the worlds of horology and music. The chronograph sub-counters have fine circular ridges that look like vinyl records, and the one at 9 o’clock has a Carl Cox logo on it. The number of sub-counters, three, also reflects Cox’s pioneering three-deck DJing style.

The ZENITH DEFY Extreme Carl Cox edition is a stunning watch that combines the best of both worlds: a classic design with a modern twist. This watch features a 45mm matte microblasted stainless steel and yellow gold case, with a 12-sided yellow gold insert under the bezel and crown guards. This blend of materials exudes a minimalistic and retro-futuristic look; it's a visual masterpiece that will undoubtedly turn heads. The case is water-resistant to 200m and has a screw-down crown for added security. The dial is open-worked, revealing the intricate workings of the El Primero 9004 in-house calibre, a chronometer-certified movement that boasts a dual regulating organ, one for timekeeping and one for the chronograph.
