Versatility is quickly becoming a major requirement for modern golf apparel. More and more golfers are choosing to invest in pieces that can easily move from the course or range to the weekend farmers market without yelling, “I just played golf!” And to meet that demand, traditional golf brands are starting to to deliver on a large scale.
Puma’s newest apparel collection, Excellent Golf Wear, offers a seamless blend of golf and streetwear styles made from performance fabrics but presented in accessible, athleisure-style silhouettes.
The collection includes basics like henley shirts, hoodies (Runway Hoodie, $ 90, pictured) and shorts that not only look stylish but also offer a wealth of technical attributes, such as moisture wicking properties, invisible pockets, stretchable cuffs and Puma’s proprietary ” Cloudspun “fabric.
The final result? A cool leisure ensemble that’s so comfortable you’ll never want to take it off again. And for today’s work-from-home warriors, the freedom to carry your stuffed animals around and for an impromptu nine is a welcome development indeed.
