Golf Refugees a UK based indie golf brand, was one of the first brands of a new breed of golfwear designers, they have been challenging golf culture convention for nearly a decade by subverting golf’s faded and boring country-club image. Golf Refugees together with other brands, Tattoo Golf Wear or Bunker Mentality just to name a few, are responsible for that breath of fresh air to the golfwear with their urban streetwear category that is been gaining more enthusiasts as the days go by; once seen as a slightly subversive novelty, now they are claimed as a staple of the fairway fashion.
It is not very easy to be accepted in the golfing mainstream establishment especially when some of the most sacred rules of golf etiquette are subverted, for Golf Refugees exceptions were not made and to stand out in a such a competitive and almost exclusive fraternity they proudly announce that their range of funny t-shirts and polo shirts that are made from carbon neutral organic cotton certified by The Soil Association. This simply means the Golf Refugees will only be manufacturing their products using renewable energy generated from wind and solar power alone, they will not only provide green, eco-friendly and fashionable shirts, but they also contribute to awaken our environmental awareness. A Golf Refugees’ men’s large shirts cut off about 89% carbon emissions according to the Carbon Trust calculations, so what are other manufacturers waiting for?
