Galvin Green, the leading premium golf apparel brand that looks to deliver reach beyond theme with stellar performance from every single garment, has turned to the ‘Science of Excellence’ for inspiration for its 2020 Part Two clothing range launched this month.
Calling on 30 years of experience in performance-driven design and passion for the game, the brand set out to provide technical clothing that would give golfers an extra edge, while adding new styles and colour combinations to provide a feel-good factor unrivalled in the golf apparel market.
The comprehensive collection of golf wear is designed to enable golfers to perform well in all weather conditions they encounter. It includes cutting-edge fabric technologies to maximise performance levels, while minimising any social or environmental impact.
The brand’s holistic approach to sustainability that began in 2013 is reflected in the fact that many garments in the latest range are made from materials approved under the globally recognised Bluesign® textile manufacturing standard. This includes all GORE-TEX outerwear products, INSULA™ mid-layer garments, VENTIL8™ PLUS pants and even garment labels. Almost all INSULA™ sweaters are now made from recycled polyester, while hangers and bags are made of recycled plastic.
Among its latest innovations, the brand has put forward ‘Comfort Combinations’ that equip a golfer with layering suggestions for different playing conditions – Rainy, Cold & Windy, Windy & Sunny, Sunny and Warm – while matching them with new colourways. In the new men’s range for example, the outfits for a rainy day feature the APOLLO waterproof GORE-TEX Paclite® stretch fabric jacket in the new Black/White/Red Orange/Sharkskin colours, plus the DWIGHT INSULA™ sweater made from recycled plastic bottles in Red Orange and the EDWIN SKINTIGHT™ Thermal top in Black.
There are no fewer than five GORE-TEX technologies in the range that are all Guaranteed To Keep You Dry™.
The revolutionary super-lightweight SHAKEDRY™ product technology sees water bead up and roll off the garment, which is available in the full-zip ASHTON (Ash Grey/Red & Ash Grey/Silver options). Extremely breathable, this streamlined jacket also features shaped sleeves for easy movement, an elastic drawstring at the hem and cuffs with partial elastic to keep out the rain.
The four other Shell Layer waterproofs include the GORE-TEX fabric with a C-KNIT™ backer that will ‘slide & glide’ over garments worn underneath (the ARCHIE flagship model features TECHSTEEL™ on the shoulders for greater durability that easily handles abrasion when carrying the bag), with GORE-TEX Superstretch technology offering optimal freedom of movement.
There is also the GORE-TEX fabric with mesh lining for added warmth (AARON); the lightweight and packable GORE-TEX Paclite® technology (APOLLO); and the half-zip stretch jacket ALEX with shaped sleeves for easy movement.
Each of these jackets can be matched with popular, durable waterproof trousers in the form of AXEL (Black) and ANDY (Navy & Black), plus the Paclite® stretch pant ARTHUR (Navy, Black & the new Sharkskin) in up to 15 size options.
The INTERFACE-1™ range of Hybrid windproof and water-repellent jackets that the brand recommends being worn on 95 out of 100 rounds has been expanded to include the new LANZO padded jacket in Navy and Black with a warming effect #3 comfort level. Also featured is the new LANGLEY in an INTERFACE-1™ stretch fabric with a warming effect #1 comfort level. It comes with a full zip and front pockets in three colours, including Navy/White. LEX is a new half-zip version in five colours, including Red/Black.
Among the latest sweaters in INSULA™ stretch fabric which also now offer three comfort levels, are the DANTE hoodie (Black) and the DUKE half-zip made from recycled plastic bottles with padded shoulders for extra warmth in Navy and Black. The lighter half-zip INSULA™ DIXON comes in new colours such as Red Orange and Black.
The collection of VENTIL8™ PLUS cool layer shirts is led by the star-spangled MASON in four colour options and offers excellent moisture-wicking properties and UV protection 20+.
The 2020 Part Two range is available at retail from today and at www.galvingreen.com from 15 August.
