Lyle and Scott LAUNCH golf apparel market in United States

Lyle & Scott have announced its launch in the United States, offering style-conscious golfers a modern take on classic designs.

More than 60 years ago, Lyle & Scott introduced bold, innovative prints and patterns worn in competition by the game’s greatest players including Jack Nicklaus, Tony Jacklin and Greg Norman.

Lyle & Scott continues to leverage its on-course history and 146-year-old fashion-lifestyle lineage to offer a sophisticated, modern golf aesthetic.

Lyle & Scott’s premium men’s golf collections feature the brand’s signature knitwear alongside new and innovative sustainable performance fabrications across a robust range of tops, bottoms, technical layering, and accessories.

Each piece is adorned with the brand’s iconic Golden Eagle, which was born from its historic relationship with the storied venue Gleneagles.

Seasonal lines are complemented by archival capsule collections, drawing upon Lyle & Scott’s deep design catalogue and manufacturing heritage to create fun, fashionable pieces inspired by vintage releases.

Lyle & Scott has tapped Wayne Webster as National Sales Manager to lead the brand’s sales division in the United States.
