FootJoy are rightly best known for their market leading golf shoes and gloves, but keen eyed golfers will have increasingly noticed the famous FJ logo prominently displayed on the clothing of some of the world's best players.
Tour players such as Steve Stricker, Peter Uihlein and Gregory Bourdy are all FJ Ambassadors, as is Brooks Koepka, one of the the games hottest properties, being crowned 2014 European Tour Rookie Or The Year as well as picking up his first PGA Tour victory at the recent Phoenix Open.
FootJoy started to concentrate on the UK apparel market three years ago and since then have seen consistent growth for their stylish and functional designs, carefully tailored for UK golfers and with a consistent eye on performance.
The 2015 Performance Collection follows this path and matches advanced fabrics with a choice of tailoring and colours to allow all golfers to feel comfortable and express their personal style on the course.
The 2015 FJ polo shirt offering features a variety of materials. Shirts are made from Cooling Pique, Oxford Knit, Stretch Pique and a cotton-feel Spun Polyester, so there is a choice to suit both conditions and as well as a range of fits.
Stretch Pique, for example, is an athletic fit using a material that is 96% polyester and 4% Spandex and includes an exclusive ProDry fabric to provide moisture management and thermal protection.
2015 Mid-Layers include the ever-popular Chill-Outs, both Brushed Chill-Outs and Pique tops, as well as high-quality Lambswool and Jersey garments.
Russell Lawes, FJ Marketing Manager, explains how FootJoy apparel has taken off:
The diversity of the range in recent years has seen it gain terrific traction with golfers of all ages. Each of our new colour collections provides a modern take on authentic golf designs that make as much of an impression on the golf course as they do on the high street.
Our primary goal, as always, is to enhance golf performance and, as such, each product has been thoughtfully created to achieve greater comfort and a better fit, while proudly displaying FJ’s Mark of a Player logo.”
FJ's Performance Trousers are constructed from a comfortable, stretchable polyester and spandex blended fabric and are now offered in a three fit options to reflect personal style: Regular, Athletic and a brand new tapered-leg Slim Fit option.
