Bobby Jones has long been known for creating high quality golf apparel for both men and women. I first noticed them when I saw their trademark Bobby Jones golfer logo on the placket of a polo I was looking at. I was instantly hooked and found their garments not only appealing to the eyes, they held their shape and lasted longer than other polos I had. Their Spring 2017 Collection is no disappointment for either men or women. Lightweight stretch fabrics, pima cottons and brilliant colors highlight the collection. Here are just a few samples of what’s available this Spring/Summer.
Pima cotton is alive and well at Booby Jones with selections available for both men and women. If you feel that cotton is dead, you’ve never laid your eyes on the Women’s Short Sleeve Stripe Pima Stretch Pique Polo. This versatile short-sleeve polo is sewn from the breathable stretch comfort of pima cotton pique and features a flat rib knit collar and cuffs. The five-button placket lets her control how much sun gets in and the Clover embroidered logo at the bottom hem lets everyone know that this old-school garment is from Bobby Jones. It’s available in sizes XS – XL and in White with stripes of Navy, Light Blue and Garden Green. Retail price is $95.
Men have several choices when it comes to cotton. The Manta Multi-Stripe Short Sleeve Polo and the Mayan Stripe Short Sleeve Polo are both sewn in Liquid Cotton (93% pima cotton/7% Lycra), which is exceptionally soft to the touch. Both feature a 4-button placket and tailored self-collar and have the scripted Bobby Jones logo embroidered on the yoke of the neck. They are incredibly comfortable and lightweight. The Mayan Stripe and Manta-Multi-Stripe are available in sizes S – XXL and in a variety of stripes and colors. Retail price is $95.
If tech fabrics are more your thing, check out the new Bobby Jones XH2O Raker Print Short Sleeve Polo. This has quickly become one of my favorites. The 93% polyester/7% spandex fabric moves with you through every facet of your swing. The Raker Print Polo features a 4-button placket with the iconic Bobby Jones golfer embroidered on it and a knit collar that is trimmed with the same colors as the chest stripe. The Raker print across the chest and on the sleeves is what really makes this shirt stand out. The XH2O Raker Print Short Sleeve Polo is available in sizes S – XXL and in either White or Summer Navy. Retail price is $95.
The Women’s Tech Short Sleeve Snap Placket Polo has been heralded for having amazing stretch in a knit fabric, as well as it’s flattering fit, comfort and overall good looks. The 92% nylon/8% spandex fabric moves with you wherever you go. The self-collar and 5-snap placket give this polo an elegant look and the contrast piping on the shoulders, back yoke and cuffs only add to the look. The 5 snaps are detailed with four leaf clovers and the clover embroidered logo can be found on the bottom hem. After all, you can’t have too much luck on the golf course! The Women’s Tech Short Sleeve Snap Placket Polo is available in sizes XS – XL and in White, Blue Breeze, Summer Navy or Garden Green. Retail price is $95.
The new Bunker Plaid Tech Stretch Shorts really hit the mark with me. There’s plenty of stretch in the 94% nylon/6% spandex fabric so that you won’t experience any pinching or binding and the flat front design adds a classic golf look. The quarter-top front pockets area easy to get in and out of and the button-through welt back pockets are large enough for most score cards. You’ll turn some heads with the Summer Navy plaid print too. The Bunker Plaid Tech Stretch Shorts are available in sizes 30-44 and retail for $95. If you’re not into plaids and prints and are just looking for a high-quality pair of golf shorts made from a technical fabric, then look no further than the Bobby Jones Tech Shorts. Sewn from a 100% polyester fabric, these Tech Shorts offer a soft drape with all the mechanical stretch you will need to power through your golf swing. They have the same style pockets as their plaid cousins and are available in sizes 30 – 44 and in 11 vibrant colors. Retail price is $95.
Bobby Jones has introduced several new performance skorts for the 2017 golf season. The Tech Solid Skort features an easy pull-on design with built-in shorts for modesty. The two front pockets are zippered as is the rear scorecard pocket. The 92% Tactel nylon/8% spandex fabric moves with you through every step of the golf swing. It’s available in sizes XS – XL and in 3 colors: White, Black and Summer Navy. Retail price is $115.
Another popular skort comes in the Argyle Deco Print, made from a lightweight stretch knit material (92% nylon, 8% spandex) and features the same easy pull-on styling with two zippered side pockets and built-in shorts. The Argyle Deco Print is complemented by striping around the waist and down the sides. It’s available in sizes XS – XL and in Blue Breeze. Retail price is $125. It pairs perfectly with the Women’s Tech Argyle Deco Print Full-Zip Jacket, which could easily become your go to layering piece. This Clover Collection favorite is made from the same fabric as the matching skort and is perfect for both on and off the course. The argyle deco print on the front and back, along with the solid color on the side panels, sleeves and collar creates a unique color block effect. The full- zip front makes this piece easy to get on and off and the two zippered front pockets keep your keepsakes safe and secure. The Women’s Tech Argyle Deco Print Full-Zip Jacket is available in sizes XS-XL and is available in Summer Navy or Blue Breeze. Retail price is $145.
Bobby Jones leads the way when it comes to stylish outerwear for men on the golf course. The Raker Quarter-Zip Long Sleeve Pullover is the perfect accompaniment to the polo. The silky-smooth texture of the 92% cotton/8% cashmere fabric is complimented by the multi-color stitching on the front and the quarter-zip makes it easy to get on and off. The Raker Quarter-Zip Long Sleeve Pullover can be found in sizes S – XXL and in those two familiar colors White and Summer Navy. Retail price is $185.
For cotton lovers, the Stripe Quarter Zip Pima Pullover may be more your style. This sturdy garment features solid color blocks on the collar, cuffs and shoulders, surrounded by an all-over striped design. It’s made from 100% Pima cotton and is soft and luxurious to the touch. You’ll find the Stripe Quarter Zip Pima Pullover in sizes S – XXL and in either a Summer Navy or Arctic Blue color. Retail price is $145.
The stretch knit fibers in the 92% nylon/8% spandex fabric of the Women’s Tech Full-Zip Vest affords you remarkable ease of movement. The full-zip design makes this garment easy to get on and off and the two lower zip pockets keep your valuables safe and secure. The Tech Full-Zip Vest is available in sizes XS – XL and in several colors: White, Turf, Twilight Purple, Summer Navy, Rio Red, Flamingo, Mimosa, and Black. Retail price is $125.
