Martin Golf Apparel Readies Fall 2012 Collections
From the Arizona Golf Authority Golf News Desk
Dallas, TX – Golf industry icon Rick Martin, who returned to the business with his new company, Martin Golf Apparel, in 2011, is excited to announce Martin Golf Apparel’s new Fall 2012 collections. In keeping with Martin’s longtime philosophy of creating apparel that’s both traditional and timeless, the Fall 2012 Martin Golf Apparel collections will continue the company’s focus on not only natural fibers, but what Martin calls “natural colors” as well.
“The Martin Golf Apparel color palette is something I’ve developed over a lifetime of experience in the apparel business,” says Martin, “and I’m proud that focus on traditional colors, as opposed to trendy ones, is among the things I’m known for.”
For Martin, too much modern golf apparel has strayed from the traditional path to which he adheres. “I remember watching last year’s U.S. Open, looking at the tour players competing for the win, and being struck by the contrived look of their outfits,” recalls Martin. “The outfits had such a ’costume’ feel, and also a stifling uniformity. Each piece was clearly designed to be worn only with pieces from the same collection. It’s great for TV but not my foursome.”
“My idea of golf fashion is rooted in watching legends like Byron Nelson and Ben Hogan – gentlemen who always looked well put together, but never contrived. To that end, my goal is to create elegant, stylish but versatile garments that are related, but can be worn with anything. This, in addition to my commitment to using only natural fibers – no synthetics, no pieced-together garments – is one of the cornerstones of what Martin Golf Apparel is all about.”
Martin Golf Apparel’s Fall 2012 collections embody the philosophy that led Martin to launch the company. The Essentials Collection makes use of the company’s entire color palette, bringing to the golf apparel marketplace a variety of knits and sweaters that truly live up to the Martin Golf Apparel philosophy, “as Timeless as the Game.” The Timeless Elements Collection offers items in a more specialized, yet still broad, range of colors.
The three remaining Fall 2012 collections are perfect illustrations of Martin Golf Apparel’s ability and commitment to blend timelessness and tradition. The British Regimental Collection employs a color palette inspired by vintage British military uniforms, backed up by and blended with distinctive clarifying colors and used in the service of modern yet timeless golf apparel. The Charcoal Classics Collection features many of the same colors as the British Regimental line, but highlights them with Light and Dark Charcoal shades to create the sort of bold yet natural contrast. Finally, the Vineyard Collection specializes in what Martin calls “earthy” tones.
Martin Golf Apparel is sold exclusively at golf clubs across in the country. In Arizona, you can find this line at Desert Mountain, Whisper Rock, Mirabel, Estancia, DC Ranch, Stone Canyon, Ventana Canyon and Ritz Carlton at Dove Mountain. Visit Martin Golf Apparel
