Apparently, our neighbors to the north (a.k.a. Canadians) know a thing or two about the grand old game of golf. Just ask Mike Weir, our favorite left-handed Ontarioan. Gear Patrol recently got to know another Ontario export, Phreshwear clothing. Billed as a new take on golfwear classics, Phresh features a line of golf shirts, pants, and accessories that boldly marry contemporary design with high performance fabrics. An athletic cut to the shirts is the icing on the cake. Consider us impressed.
We had the opportunity to take their signature polo onto the course for a sweat-soaked demonstration (you’ll see the Checkmate in Citron pictured above, sans sweat), and it worked out beautifully. All of Phresh’s shirts are constructed from their exclusive microfiber pique and stitched with Coolplus wicking yarn. The result is a garment that kept us cool and dry, despite the sizzling South Carolina sun that tested our SPF coverage. Even better was touting a look unmatched by others on the course. Phresh definitely offers you the chance to sport a bold, unique look whilst getting the sort of fabric performance you’d expect from a much larger manufacturer.
