Review: Martin Golf Apparel
The interview with Rick Martin is Here!!
I received a nice forest green striped polo with matching charcoal wool vest. Right out of the packaging the quality was noticeable. The soft fabrics along with the classic look really sets these apart from your run of the mill golf polo. I did take the opportunity to wear it on a hot day in FL and there is something to be said about cotton comfort and breathability. While it might show the sweat initially and absorb some of it, as it dries, it doesn’t have the same stink, nor does it cause sweat to run down your back onto the top of your pants.
The actual comfort during the swing is much like other polo shirts, it stretches nicely and doesn’t impede the swing at all. The overall fit is slightly fuller than some of the new euro cuts, but still not baggy or bulky in any way. The cotton is also mid to light weight so I didn’t feel weighed down nor did I feel uncovered, but just a traditional cotton shirt.
Using words like traditional and classic can have a bad connotation, I think they really express the true essence of Martin Golf Apparel. There is still a market for nice looking, cotton golf shirts. Rick Martin makes about the best ones you can buy anywhere.
The Martin Golf cotton polo and wool vest are two of the nicest pieces of apparel I own. They are classy and comfortable. I honestly didn’t think I would go back to cotton or wool after all the bad experiences I’ve had in the past, but Rick Martin convinced me that “cotton is back” with Martin Golf Apparel.
