Fashion is way more than just the look of the apparel, but how it makes us feel. Especially where movement is so important on the golf course, one slight tug from arms or back of the shirt can change the direction of the ball from straight down the fairway into the fescue. If shirts continually become untucked not only does it add an annoyance to your game, country clubs with strict dress codes can kick you off the course. In the hot summer sun, fabric can change your mood from being gung-ho about completing a full 18 to 9 holes will do today. We are not materialistic but we are fabric snobs and found some amazing companies that jive with our style.
Robert Brunner inspired by a passion for fashion and golf created Devereux, a line of men’s golf apparel with proper threads, indeed. His expertise after sewing, cutting, and studying at fashion school combines the best of both worlds, the highly desirable, luxurious pima cotton with sweat wicking technical fibers. Robert says, “It’s just something more subtle that you can walk around the streets with or go to a bar with, in a certain shirt or a pant that isn’t screaming, I just got off the golf course!” This fabrication has a lustrous, resilient look with high performance functionality. Quite often today, contemporary golf fashion means loud oranges and fluorescent greens. Devereux has a different view of what makes contemporary golf fashion classy, cool, and modern.
Two pieces from Devereux’s current collection caught our eye. The Brunner signature piece is a luxurious lightweight jersey features a four-button placket, signature pocket and a button down collar. It’s available in a cool color palate of White, Steel, Navy, Caviar, Coral and Sea Green. The chest pocket is a signature design element for Devereux, which used the influences of the old and put a modern twist to the design. The Devereux Pique has a unique Pima cotton and spandex blend with great cooling effect. Spandex allows for ease of movement during the swing while retaining the overall shape and fit of the shirt.
“We find that we are priced exceptionally well, especially for the fabric we use and the attention to detail we give when designing our garments,” stated Devereux. Devereux is priced on the high end of the middle pricing tier. ($84.95 US)
Devereux has been working on adding other pieces to its collection as it has been designing contemporary blazers, sleek vest and technical pants. The company will be adding different garments throughout its collection season to season. For more information on Devereux, visit www.dvrxgolf.com.
