The Grey Winter Cover Up
Images from the recent British Masters confirm that we golfers revert to darker colours for the autumn and winter months.
A picture paints a thousand words – end of season, tired, weather typically British – and the dress code reflects it. Seems like little inspiration from being dressed brightly in the late September, autumnal British weather.
Yes, you would expect golf knitwear to be worn at this time of the year here in the UK. However, there did seem to be a preponderance of grey at the British Open as the compilation picture highlights.
Is it in our psyche? Certainly, here at Golf Teamwear, the majority of golf pullovers and golf sweaters that we supply from now through to next spring will be in shades of grey, black and navy. They will also be predominately woollen whereas by spring, the demand for the cotton mix golf pullovers will come to the fore and they will be predominately in pastels and lighter colours.
So during the winter months it is most likely that any display of bright contrast colours will come from the golf shirts whose colour will peep out from underneath the jerseys or the bright thread contained in the company, society or event logos embroidered on the front left chest or sleeve of the pullovers.
Lets face it, there is an element of practicality in wearing the darker colours at this time of the year when golf courses become a little damp and muddy and brushes with the undergrowth, should you happen to stray from the straight and narrow, may not be kind to the lighter colour fabrics.
However when spring makes its next appearance the blues and red and yellows will be regular requests to Golf Teamwear as the thoughts of the golfers turn to a positive year ahead, when the handicap will reduce, silverware will be won and the elusive hole in one will be just round the corner.
Its just a seasonal thing really when we pander to nature – possibly for good reason!
Congratulations to Paul Dunne for bringing a bit of colour to the week.
To my fellow golfers – stay warm and as bright as possible this winter season.
