As many of you know Malbon Golf did a collaboration with Nike called "Pray for the Youth." Myself and several other colleagues have ordered items on their website but still have not received the them. According to their website,it states items will be shipped in10 days. I still have not received any updates regarding my order. When I look at their social media page (Instagram), it seems like all they do is play golf. Also,if you look close at the images on their Nike products, it looks photoshopped. I am wondering if they even had the products in hand. I am wondering anyone received their items.

I'd give them a call to see what the status is or at the least email them. If you, or a friend, live in California they have a retail store you can always visit.

In another thread, this was someones experience

I never heard of this company but I definitely won't spend a dime with them.   How do they get away with having Tiger Woods photos on their website ?

They are working with Nike.

I ordered the Nike shirt and hat that they dropped last week. Shipping was 10 days from date of order, but just received an e-mail yesterday that it was going to be an additional 14 days. We'll see how this ends.

A couple of things on this one:

1. They sent out an e-mail to some almost a full week AFTER the drop and said that the wait time would now be "14 BUSINESS days" starting at that point in time before items sent;

2. They canceled and refunded many people and their items stating that Nike "short changed" them (or they oversold) product; and,

3. They are piece mail shipping out items it appears from several people

This on top of issues with many of their products from the past. Not sure what is going on with them, but it is definitely a crappy business model to be following if you want to maintain loyal customers.

IMO, they put a logo on a cheap item and charge 8x the price.

I've had good experiences with them. Maybe they shouldn't do so many collaborations; I tried to get a product through them that they did with another company and came up dry even though the other company had the item (I wanted to give Malbon my business). But they clearly have a good vibe going with their stuff -- I watched an HBO show the other night and an actor was wearing a Malbon shirt. That takes some effort to pull off.

But at the end of the day it's soft goods, of course it's marked-up stuff with a logo. There are guys that will pay $135 for a headcover without blinking and others who think that's the craziest thing ever.

I'm in the camp of people that ordered something from the Nike x Malbon release. I picked up the hat (everything else was either overpriced or too extra for me). I got the "it will be 14 additional business days" email like Lopey did who was quoted above. It definitely seems to me that this was a pre order not labeled as a pre order. They either drastically under-ordered from Nike before the items were posted for sale or they were waiting to see how much interest there was before placing the actual order. Those aren't always bad things, but I would have liked to know it was a pre order before I purchased anything. I would be even more upset if I dropped a few hundred bucks on multiple pieces.

I do think Malbon is an interesting lifestyle / social media company, but their transition into being a retail "brand" is not off to a good start as far as I am concerned.

Yeah, 14 business days was 10/12. It's now 10/22 and i've received no response to 3 e-mails i've sent inquiring about when they would be shipping. Order status on my hat and shirt still just say "confirmed". Someone else said they received an e-mail that there order was shipping but 2 days later USPS still just says the shipping label was created and they don't actually have the package yet.

So, yeah, it's not looking great. I'll probably give them this week to see if the items ship or they respond to my e-mails before I just do a chargeback on my credit card because it's not worth the hassle.

Also, someone is already selling the nike x malbon hat on the classifieds...so i guess it's cool that someone was able to actually get their hands on one.

My hat will be delivered today but I am away on business and will not get it until Wednesday.  The "I am sorry" gift is supposed to be in the box with the hat.

I have no idea who Malbon Golf is or what "big baller brand" even means.

Big Baller Brand sounds like it should be used in a sentence with "Minty", "Gamer" and "OG"

Wow!!    I Just went to the web site.  It’s just a “brand”.  They dont make anything.

What a pathetic  selection of rebranded wildly overpriced crap!!   It’s incredible. People are actually buying stuff from these jack wads??

$36 glove?, $65 tee shirt?  Holy moly.  And then you’ve got to pray that whoever makes the stuff for them will come though with the product after you order it.  You’re at the mercy of two, maybe even three companies production and supply problems.

Absolutely One of the biggest jokes I’ve ever seen.

Those are Google Ads and that's probably what they call "re-targeting". You must have visited the Malbon Golf website and they put a cookie on you and keep advertising to you after you've left.

I'm in the camp of people that ordered something from the Nike x Malbon release. I picked up the hat (everything else was either overpriced or too extra for me). I got the "it will be 14 additional business days" email like Lopey did who was quoted above. It definitely seems to me that this was a pre order not labeled as a pre order. They either drastically under-ordered from Nike before the items were posted for sale or they were waiting to see how much interest there was before placing the actual order. Those aren't always bad things, but I would have liked to know it was a pre order before I purchased anything. I would be even more upset if I dropped a few hundred bucks on multiple pieces.

I do think Malbon is an interesting lifestyle / social media company, but their transition into being a retail "brand" is not off to a good start as far as I am concerned.

Then this may not be the thread for you :dntknw:

Yeah, 14 business days was 10/12. It's now 10/22 and i've received no response to 3 e-mails i've sent inquiring about when they would be shipping. Order status on my hat and shirt still just say "confirmed". Someone else said they received an e-mail that there order was shipping but 2 days later USPS still just says the shipping label was created and they don't actually have the package yet.

So, yeah, it's not looking great. I'll probably give them this week to see if the items ship or they respond to my e-mails before I just do a chargeback on my credit card because it's not worth the hassle.

Also, someone is already selling the nike x malbon hat on the classifieds...so i guess it's cool that someone was able to actually get their hands on one.

I went back and replied to the "14 business days" email asking for an update. They replied in a day or two and said it would be shipping out this week, apologized for the delay.

Yeah that's the e-mail I replied to but still never heard back. Like I said, i'll give them this week then just do a chargeback if they never communicate.

This is a quote from Vogue magazine story


Now, they’re taking on the golf world. Why? Because they both deeply love the sport but see it in decline. “The mission,” Erica explains, “is to introduce the sport to the youth, because golf isn’t at its peak right now.”

How can young kids afford this stuff, putting their logo on puma and nike gear isn’t growing the game .

But it's L.A., where wearing a BRAND is everything. And the store out there has more of a hangout vibe than a retail one. I'd say they're doing fine to that audience. Moving product across the country seems to be another matter.

Yeah I got that, I just thought it was funny that I was getting Malbon adds on the thread aimed at speaking poorly about the company.

The ‘growing the game claim’ that I’ve seen thrown around by supporters is laughable.    Urban cool, skater culture, edgy, debatable.

I do like their logo, but wouldn’t shell out the cash for their collaborations.  

That said, I don’t get the Yeezy stuff either.  

As I’ve said in other threads (Eg. Swag) I think I’m an ‘old soul’ trapped in a 39 year old body.  Maybe I’m just plain ‘old’.
