Review: Maide By Bonobos Golf Apparel
The main attraction is the pants. Like I said above, they are the best pair of pants I own. While the “Master’s” edition pants might not have been my first color choice, I have really enjoyed the different color. I already have a closet full of black, grey and brown pants so having something bright, different, yet classy is a nice touch. The yellow accent and trim adds a real flair to these as well. It works out nicely since I have some other “Master’s” themed gear which makes for a perfect combo with these pants. When it is the non-Masters time of year, they become my Packer pants, which works out well too since they are my favorite team.
So what makes them so great? The fit is the best factor for me. I have thick legs that sometimes pants either get too tight or look too big. It is never good to squeeze into a pair of pants, but you don’t want them to look like MC Hammer pants either. Maide is the perfect combo of fitted, yet comfortable. They offer them in all the different sizes and lengths so you can get exactly what you need. It seems many golf pant companies have been cutting out some sizes and only offering 1 length. That just doesn’t cut it, so Maide offers even some odd number sizes for an even better fit as necessary.
The polyester fabric used on these pants is also a perfect mix of stretch, comfort and just the right weight. Sometimes pants get too thin, almost see through, and that just isn’t flattering. Yet if they get too thick they are heavy and hot. These are just right, along with some stretch so they move comfortably as you walk and play.
The little details are what seal the deal on these pants being the best I own. They have a unique button slide closure that I’ve never seen before, but is really nice. It is a cross between all the types of pant closures, a button, a snap and a slider. The inside grip strip keeps shirts tucked in. The expandable cuffs make it possible and easier to remove these pants, even with shoes on. The deep pockets lay flat against the leg so that they aren’t annoying when you first put the pants on. The tall belt loops accommodate my bigger leather belts.
“Nice Pants” might be an under-statement, because Maide by Bonobos makes the best pair of pants and shorts you can buy. I can’t say I was impressed by their polo shirt, but these pants are perfect. I may have to start buying some of their other colors to fill my closet with these “nice pants”.
