Golf Today Northwest - - News -

Hav­ing never been ac­cused, or even sus­pected, of be­ing a fash­ion­ista, my sar­to­rial evo­lu­tion has been very slow and grad­ual. But there were al­ways a cou­ple of ex­cep­tions. A few years back when our daugh­ter saw me man­han­dling an iron­ing board into the TV room, she asked her Mom what I was do­ing. She looked up, and with­out hes­i­ta­tion, said: “Oh, he's ei­ther play­ing golf or has an in­ter­view.” For me it's al­ways been of the ut­most im­por­tance to dress ap­pro­pri­ately in re­spect of the game. Over the years, one of the most dra­matic de­vel­op­ments in golf has been the evo­lu­tion in men's golf shirts; for in­stance, the pri­or­ity is no longer a breast pocket for a cig­a­rette pack­age. In tan­dem with the ac­knowl­edge­ment that golf po­los are not just toned down bowl­ing shirts and should be de­signed to ac­com­mo­date the swing mo­tion, has been the evo­lu­tion of ma­te­ri­als and fabrics. Case in point is the sum­mer col­lec­tion from Cut­ter & Buck. The Se­seap­ines Stripe Polo is not only a very good-look­ing shirt, it has a ton of tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vance­ments you sure don't see, but you do feel. The fabric is 98 % polyester and 8% Span­dex for flex­i­bil­ity. It has UPF 50+ sun prpro­tec­tion and CB Dry­tec mois­ture wick­ing. You can just throw it in the wash­ing ma­chine and it has a locker loop for no-brainer hang­ing up. That's coocool. The same goes fo­for the Cun­ning­ham Polo and the Fri­day Harb­har­bor Stripe Polo (in the $77 range). The folk­folks at C&B put it this way: You'll feel as good as you look. That goes for the ccourse, an in­ter­view, or a night out. Check out the Col­lec­tion at www.cut­ter­
