New technical fabrics and retro styling highlight Golfino’s comprehensive golf apparel collections for men and women this season. Based near Hamburg, Germany, the family-owned business has stood for elegant, high quality, distinctive sportswear since 1986.
Three trademarked fabrications take center stage in creating their functional golf clothing.
Silverplus, made from silver chloride, keeps the fabric fresh. The silver compound on the surface of the yarn prevents odor causing bacteria from building up.
Kafetex has odor-neutralizing features through its coffee coated yarn and an anti-static effect that improves the garment’s feel when wearng.
Sofiguard is a water resistant process that helps keep you dry in inclement conditions.
The technical fabric applications are used in different pieces to protect the body while keeping providing maximum flexibility for the golf swing.
Golfino’s signature is blending functionality with sporty elegant style. The designers focus on attractive, everyday looks that are easily worn on and off the golf course.
The men’s styles feature high-tech materials, sophisticated designs and prominent colors. Transitional pieces such as a v-neck sweater are updated with a modern cut and made from easy-care, super soft cotton with a mottled look. Printed polo shirts are punched up with color-blocking, contrasting collars/zips and shoulder/side inserts.
The all-over patterns in the women’s collection are signature Golfino and include African safari prints, a whimsical golf ball and club print, a paisley print, checks and classic stripes. Also available for ladies in summer are Bermuda shorts in various lengths, capris, golf dresses and skirts with matching accessories. The retro sport theme is trendy and casual, using side stripes and track suit vibes.
In addition to styling, Golfino’s love of detail presents itself in glitter and crystal elements, optical buttons, integrated tee holders and ball markers as well as some belt buckles that double as a bottle opener.
