Shared from Chapeau Noir Golf

Devereux: Golf apparel for every occasion

Sep 4th

Shared from Chapeau Noir Golf

If you have yet to hear of Devereux, consider yourself informed. Like a now well known and widely distributed California cousin, Devereux is on track to become a green grass staple.

Inspiration for Devereux’s Proper Collection for Fall of 2014 comes by way of Miami — 1950s and 60s Miami — and we can certainly see the influence.

Constructed for golfers and travelers alike, Devereux is designed “to easily transcend from on-course to off-course or from city to city, whatever the occasion.”

Though this is a familiar refrain we hear from nearly every new golf apparel entrant, the distinct versatility of Devereux’s latest collection is easily recognized.

“The new adicross Tour has all the performance and support I need in a tour shoe plus a look that fits my style,” said Tour Staff Professional Dustin Johnson. “The bold colors are great and I knew it was for me the moment I saw it.”

Enjoy your walk: Jones Golf Bags, a new generation of a ’70s classic

Dec 13th

Shared from – Chapeau Noir Blog – Trends in Golf Apparel.

Stuart Goldstein, CNG — As a high school golfer growing up in the late ‘70s there were some very basic equipment and gear staples: balata golf balls, persimmon woods, metal spikes and single strap Jones golf bags. Over the years these time-tested classic clubs and accessories went the way of the rotary phone. But one is making a welcome and long overdue comeback: Jones Golf Bags.

Jones Golf Bags was founded in 1971 by George Jones, a part time golfer and cab driver and full time tinkerer from Portland, Oregon. After years of refining the style and look that he wanted, the Jones brand quickly rose to become the most heavily carried golf bag in the game. It was the face of amateur, high school and collegiate golf for generations. Distinguished by its sleek, simple looks with its trademark single strap and sturdy nylon bottom base, Jones Golf Bags was designed for players who preferred to walk. But wait, there’s more…

It will be interesting to see if a 14 year-old’s game can hold up at the Masters, but whatever happens, Guan will look every bit the role of a professional if he maintains current preference for wearing Sligo.

The reason why some golfers look more like NASCAR drivers

If you’ve ever wondered why your favorite player looks more like a NASCAR driver than he does a golfer, take a look at this interesting graphic, sent my way by Nick Jenkins. The graphic ballparks what players make to wear a company’s logo, citing no fewer than nine strategic placements.

Published in 2011 by Crescent Partners CurtComm, the numbers should still be relatively valid, but keep in mind that these numbers don’t represent every player across each of the tours cited — Joe Lunchpail who lives out of his car trying to Monday qualify for events isn’t raking in these numbers. But wait, there´s more
