Galvin Green’s spring/summer 2015 collection

Published

on

Sweden-based golf apparel manufacturer, Galvin Green, has unveiled its wide-ranging spring/summer 2015 collection.

The company, “a pure golf brand,” which has set the standard in golf outerwear in Europe for the past two decades, expanded to the U.S. market last year, aspiring to outfit “the serious golfer.”

Regarding their offerings, the company says, “Each detail exists because the game demands it and there is never any compromise on the quality of materials or the functional design of golf wear styled for all climatic conditions.”

With this collection, “styled for all climatic conditions,” Galvin Green continues to explore the “multi-layer concept,” offering garments in five basic color families.

Here’s a full breakdown of Galvin Green’s spring/summer ’15 lineup, presented by layer.

Outer protection: shell layer

featuring GORE-TEX, GORE-TEX Paclite, and WINDSTOPPER technologies

Galvin Green offers the totally waterproof, lined, highly breathable APEX full-zip jacket with GORE-TEX stretch fabric and mesh lining. The AMOS jacket and the ART jacket (half-zip), also with GORE-TEX stretch fabric, are the most heavy-duty outerwear. All are available in sizes small to at least 3XL (some to 4XL).

Weighing just 240 grams (or about five golf balls), Galvin Green’s shell layers with GORE-TEX Paclite technology are for slightly warmer conditions, but offer the same waterproof protection as the jackets above. Again, the company offers jackets with and without stretch fabric, the ARON and the minimal ALISTER. Similar to the heavier jackets above, Galvin Green also offers a half-zip jacket with the Paclite technology: the ALVIN. These, too, are available from small to at least 3XL.

Galvin Green also implements the Paclite technology in three half-sleeve jackets: the AKRON, AIR, and uniquely patterned ARCHIE.

Those hoping for a departure from the traditional black rain pant will be happy to see Galvin Green’s AUGUST pants, which also feature the Paclite material. The pants are available in electric red, midnight blue, gunmetal gray, and, of course, black. All are available in short, standard, and long lengths. In all lengths, sizes range from small to at least XL, with sizes up to 3XL available in black.

New this season, the ALF stretch trouser is equipped with GORE-TEX stretch fabric to allow for a greater freedom of movement. The ALF stretch also offers a slimmer silhouette than the traditional ALF, which is still available. All come in short, standard, and long lengths from sizes small to at least 3XL.

In addition to the rainwear featuring GORE-TEX technology, Galvin Green also implement’s Gore’s WINDSTOPPER technology in its long-sleeve, full-zip BOURNE jackets, which are water resistant (not waterproof) and windproof. The company also offers roughly the same jacket in a half zip (BANKS), and a full-zip vest (BOND). Sizes range from small to 3XL here, too.

Thermal regulation: warm layer/cool layer

featuring Galvin Green’s INSULA and VENTIL8 technologies

Galvin Green’s intermediate layer features the company’s INSULA technology, which has been improved this year with a thinner softer fiber structure. The full-zip DUSTIN, which is available in three colors, is the company’s heat-regulating benchmark garment. Also available: a half-zip (DEX), a full-zip vest (DENZEL), and a half-zip vest (DRAKE). The fabric is a 90 percent polyester/10% elastane blend. All are available in sizes small to 3XL.

The company also offers an array of knitted wool blend sweaters and vests for a more traditional approach to warmth, the vast majority of which can be obtained in sizes from small to 3XL (the COOPER wool/acrylic blend vest only goes up to XXL).

From warming to cooling, Galvin Green’s VENTIL8 polos feature the company’s breathable, anti-bacterial, UV protection technology to keep golfers cool and dry. The SS15 line includes a total of 18 VENTIL8 polos in three different designs, most within the five color families outlined earlier. All are 100 percent polyester and available in sizes small to at least XXL (some to 3XL).

In addition, the collection includes an additional 24 cotton/polyester blend polos in a range of styles. These, too, are offered from small to XXL.

Galvin Green has your lower half covered as well, of course, offering three models of VENTIL8 trousers, the NED, NATE, and NEASON. The NED is a more traditional cut pant and it’s available in nine colors, from the boilerplate khaki to the more exotic electric red and grape. All of the SS15 trousers are 100% polyester stretch material and feature elastic waistbands. The range of available sizes is extensive, so you don’t have to be the stereotypical European beanpole to find pants that fit well.

The collection also includes shorts and patterned polyester blend trousers to cover all your sartorial bases.

Dry comfort: base layer

featuring Galvin Green’s SKINTIGHT technology.

For wear underneath the abundance of garments above, Galvin Green suggests either compression or thermal layers and offers SKINTIGHT compression and SKINTIGHT thermal accordingly.

The SKINTIGHT compression garments are designed to enhance circulation and thus improve muscle stamina and performance. Galvin Green offers compression tops in both black and white, as well as tights up to XXL. Likewise, SKINTIGHT thermals to keep you warm. All are made from a polyester/elastane blend.

Accessories

Given the comprehensive nature of the spring/summer range so far, you won’t be surprised to find that Galvin Green offers a wealth of accessory options to complement their outerwear.

In the headwear department, the company implements GORE-TEX Paclite technology in wide-brimmed golf hats (AURA), the shorter-brimmed ANT, and the traditional baseball cap, ABEL. All are available in multiple colors. Knit caps with WINDSTOPPER technology and three with INSULA fabric round out the headwear offerings. Standard polyester baseball caps are available, too—in seven colors.

In addition, Galvin Green offers mitts, cold-weather gloves, neckwarmers and wristwarmers—the latter with INSULA technology—to insure you’re fully prepared to play in the most miserable of conditions.

And if you’re really looking to go with Galvin Green from head to toe, you’re in luck: the company is adding performance golf socks this year.

Presently expanding aggressively in the United States, Galvin Green’s products are available in finer pro shops and exclusively online through TrendyGolf.com. The ’14 collection is presently available for sale there.

    The best waterproofs bar none. You stay dry full stop. Expensive but my Galvin jacket is 6 years old and still totally waterproof and looks almost new. Consider them as an investment as they will last for years and see off any rival suit.

TaylorMade unveils 2020 PGA Championship staff bag and headcovers (and we’re giving a set away!)

Published

on

TaylorMade has launched its commemorative staff bag, as well as headcovers, to celebrate the opening major of 2020 at TPC Harding Park.

For the first time in its 102-year history, the PGA Championship will be hosted in the Bay Area. To honor the occasion, the staff bag from TaylorMade is accented by the San Francisco Giants’ traditional cream, orange, and black colorway.

GIVEAWAY: TaylorMade PGA Championship Staff Bag and Headcovers! Super Limited!

The commemorative bag also features the TaylorMade logo in the same font used by the MLB franchise and is decorated by eight stars on the bag’s upper with each representing a Giants’ World Series victory.

The three stars in orange signals wins captured in San Francisco, while the five stars in white represent wins in New York before the club’s 1957 relocation.

The interior lining of the bag shows the San Francisco Chronicle headlines that followed each of the team’s most recent championships.

Additional nods to the city include stitching of Lombard Street on the handle, an outline of the city’s skyline on the lower paneling, and an image of the iconic Golden Gate and Bay Bridges across the base.

A WGH insignia acknowledges the 29th President of the United States, and the venue’s namesake, Warren G. Harding.
