Part One of leading apparel brand Galvin Green’s 2021 apparel collection goes on sale today (February 15).
The new GameDay range features the most advanced fabric technologies from around the world, as well as a dazzling array of bright colour options, including bright yellow, red and blue, matched with outfits offering comfort and style both on and off the golf course for men, women and juniors.
The GameDay collection features a more extensive range of products made from recycled and sustainable materials, with around 70% of the garments now using environmental Bluesign-approved fabric or certified by OEKO-TEX 100 to cover thread and buttons as well as fabric. Labels and packaging also come in eco-friendly formats.
Galvin Green CEO Nicholai Stein said: “This new collection reflects our vision of GameDay being just about every day for the serious golfer and they can feel confident that we have gone the extra mile to give them the ultimate GameDay experience with the most advanced golf clothing range on the market. As with every serious golfer, we never compromise on what we do or believe in. So, we’ve also taken our holistic approach to sustainability to another level, while enabling golfers to look great, feel special and perform at their peak whenever possible and whatever the weather.”
