Perry Ellis International, Inc. designs, distributes and licenses a wide variety of men’s and women’s apparel including several well-known golf brands: Callaway, Jack Nicklaus, PGA TOUR, Ben Hogan, Grand Slam and The Original Penguin. Their collections of golf apparel for men and women is second to none.
Callaway is perhaps the most recognized name of all, although they are better known for their golf equipment. Callaway apparel offers the ultimate combination of golf authenticity and style. Their designs and looks are always innovative and exude quality, performance, fit and functionality. Callaway apparel is designed for those who love the game of golf. It represents where the game has been, and where the game is going.
One of the men’s polos that really caught my eye from the Fall 2019 collection is the Color Block Polo. It’s Bright White, with a teal color block on the shoulders front and back and diagonal stripes below the block. The stretch fabric guarantees full range of motion while Opti Dri technology keeps moisture at bay. Another great looking and functional men’s piece is the Stitch Print ¼ Zip Pullover. With its mock collar and stylish stitch print, this warm outerwear piece will not only keep the elements at bay, it will have you looking good too.
Dedicated lady golfers who aren’t afraid to brave the elements will take solace in Callaway’s Waterproof Stretch Pants. They are completely waterproof and feature 2 front zippered pockets and one back zippered pocket and the smooth feel of the soft finish provides added comfort and the snap closure with adjustable waist and ankles makes getting them on and off a breeze. The Women’s Contrast Tulip Sleeve features a modern twist on a classic Callaway design. The cooling technology makes it perfect for warm weather and Opti Dri technology keeps you dry and fresh. The contrasting packet and collar and tulip sleeves provide a unique touch.
The name Jack Nicklaus is easily recognized worldwide and has “Golden Bear” logo has become a recognized trademark in the apparel industry. Jack Nicklaus golf apparel features the latest apparel technology and is easy on the eyes. Mr. Nicklaus himself serves as brand ambassador.
Although technically not a golf piece, the Regular Fit Stretch Button Down shirt meets both standards and the classic pattern is perfect for any day of the week. It features a button down front and collar and a stitched pocket with the iconic Golden Bear logo proudly displayed. The ¼ Zip Long Sleeve Golf Sweater is stylish and comfortable choice no matter what the weather. The knit fabric is soft and lightweight and the ribbed mock collar cuffs and hem help the garment retain its shape.
Don’t let cool weather keep you off the course. This Jack Nicklaus 1/4 Zip Long Sleeve Golf Sweater is a comfortable and stylish choice year-round. The golf pullover with mock neck provides warmth on chilly days and is easy to remove as you warm up. Its knit fabric is soft and lightweight yet durable while the ribbing at the collar, cuffs and hem add shape retention for the perfect fit.
Another popular Perry Ellis golf brand is PGA TOUR; it’s available at a number of big box golf and non-golf retailers. PGA TOUR golf apparel is available for both men and women and offers superior quality, performance and comfort letting you perform like a champion while remaining a leader in fashion innovation. The Men’s Printed Stacked Heather Polo and Women’s Sleeveless Engineered Stripe Polo Shirt are chock full of technology: moisture wicking, sun protection and a high performance fabric. It doesn’t hurt that they both look great too! The Stacked Heather Polo with it’s multitude of wide stripes and contrasting knit color Stripe Polo pairs with a wide variety of bottoms and the Sleeveless Engineered Stripe Polo with its 3-button placket and mock collar will have your playing partners envious!
PGA TOUR’s Sleeveless Engineered Stripe Polo pairs well with the 16 Inch Airflux Skort with Tummy Control Waistband, especially in Yellow. This skort will enhance your figure and have you looking your best as you head to the tee box. Two side hem front pockets and one back pocket provide ample storage. It’s an outfit you can be proud of.
Legendary golfer Ben Hogan once said: “The most important shot in golf is the next one.” This philosophy is true in the golf apparel industry and each successive line of Ben Hogan golf apparel bears witness to that. Their line of golf polos is stylish and each design is infused with the top-notch apparel technology. My favorite is black and dark grey gradient print with color blocked sleeves and a solid collar with a 3-button placket.
In 1955, Munsingwear introduced the soon-to-be world famous Grand Slam golf polo and the original Penguin Pete logo quickly reached iconic status. Like a really good sitcom series, Pete has been spun off into his own brand, The Original Penguin. Perry Ellis continues the Grand Slam tradition along with the original tagline “On Course. Off Course. Change Course.” The Ball in Motion logo still represents the brand’s forward motion as it continues to appeal to both men and women. The Grand Slam DriFlow Classic-Fit Performance Medallion Print Golf Polo continues the company’s tradition of high quality golf polos. This time-honored garment is sewn from their DriFlow moisture-wicking fabric treated with SunFlow sun-blocking. MotionFlow technology has innovative stretching shoulder seams that increase range of motion. The DriFlow Classic-Fit Performance Medallion Print Golf Polo is perfect either on or off the course. Grand Slam’s On Course Active Waistband Stretch Performance Shorts are full of apparel technology including moisture wicking, active 360 waistband, sun protection and a button back pocket. They are lightweight and look great.
These are just a few highlights of some of the brands that make up Perry Ellis’ golf apparel companies. For more information, visit each company’s website or look for them at your favorite golf retailers.
