Ah, November — the month of giving thanks, rounds with the fam, indulging in too much food, and ticking off gifts for the holiday season. This time of year serves as the perfect excuse for brands to squeeze in their latest and greatest apparel and products before the end of the year to carry us through the winter months and well into the new year. This month has brought us pickle-themed golf balls, artisan tweed headcovers, and winter patterns that we just can’t get enough of. Here’s what caught our eye this month.
This collection of icy blue hues and mixed browns has elevated familiar neutral tones with the addition of old-school patterns and textures, for a refreshing capsule we can easily see golfers of all generations pulling off. Plaid is quintessentially a fall/winter pattern, and we’ve seen it done a million different ways—but the Houndstooth Script Polo takes an age-old golf staple and adds modish elements like a color-blocked collar and cinched cuffs to make a simple-yet-bold look. Similarly, the collection’s signature piece, the Houndstooth Weekend Jacket gives a strong nod to the 80s with its structure adding shoulder pads. Our favorite part of the jacket is the gold hardware on the cuffs that give it this superior luxe finish.
Jain Golf went up on our radar back in the summer when they hosted a summer camp-themed activation at Top Golf LA earlier this year and we’ve been anticipating an apparel drop from them for quite some time. This whimsical brand has crafted a special cartoon golf ball logo that takes us through the world of Jain — a place where golfers can be whoever they want to be, nurturing their inner child. In its debut capsule, Jain stays true to its fun, varicolored methods displayed across a series of everyday essentials like long and short-sleeved tees, sweats, and a canvas single-strap golf bag.
The skippy, techno, futuristic-cool music of this drop’s teaser trailer really tells you everything you need to know about the Vent 500 golf sneaker. In terms of function, the design is seamless and waterproof, lightweight with laminated detailing. And in terms of form, the sleek slate and angular, geometric motif is a versatile, season-proof choice that works just as well with leggings as it does with a pair of light jeans.
The dramatic, high-gloss, faux crocodile (but real leather) golf bag collaboration between Vessel Golf and TaylorMade made us stop and stare. There are only 50 editions, globally, of this incredibly limited edition, limited run luxe package, which includes a shoe bag, carry-all, and three high-grain matching headcovers. For a cool $3k, this fashionable “First Edition” is at the top of our splurge-worthy holiday wish lists.
We love this trend for its versatility: throw on a huge coat, ideally with a built-in scarf or wrap like this lululemon variety, and you have a statement outfit that works well with your amphibious golf sneakers and a colorful pair of polarized shades that you can sport on and off the course.
Fashion is cyclical, trends find their way back and this time around embroidered cardigans are making their mark and finding ways to make them niche. This isn’t your grandparents’ embroidered cardigan from the 20th century, brands like Tory Burch utilize luxe fabrics like cashmere to create more opulent styles that function on and off the course. Playful golf-themed appliqués are used to create styles that are unique to the wearer, you’ll be sure to look one-of-a-kind. Our favorite Tory Burch Cashmere Embroidered Golf Sweater is currently sold out so we’re keeping an eye out for a restock, but here are some alternatives we’re loving just as much.
