Weather experts are calling for an historically balmy fall throughout much of the U.S., and Sept. and Oct. are shaping up to feel a lot like summer, especially in the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and Rocky Mountains.
Golfers who typically switch into long pants and performance pullovers might find themselves in need of reloading on summer apparel. If so, there are a couple ways to go. One, they can shop around and mix-and-match a few polos and shorts.
Or, for those who prefer an “easy button” solution, they can opt for a coordinated look to finish off the warm season in style. North Carolina-based Peter Millar is all about coordination (and balmy autumns), and its Crown Sport and Crown Crafted Looks answer the bell.
Crown Sport Look
The Featherweight Polo has proven to be one of the most popular options in the Crown Sport Look and has emerged as a true contender for best golf polo across all brands.
Weighing in at an incredible 2.5 ounces, Featherweight Polos pack all the performance punch of your favorite golf shirt in patterns and prints that look situation appropriate on and off the course.
They’re engineered from super-lightweight performance fabric that stretches four ways for a full-range of motion, wicks away moisture from the body and resists odor.
They come in a classic fit, designed with a standard sleeve length and opening and are relaxed in the shoulder, chest and waist.
The Salem High Drape Performance Short is another smart Indian Summer selection. Crafted from 5.6-ounce polyester woven twill, the short offers two-way mechanical stretch for ease of movement, moisture wicking, quick dry and easy care. It’s an impeccably designed course favorite with visual refinement for easy wearing around town.
Peter Millar is building a sterling reputation in the casual men’s shoe citatory, led by the Hyperlight Glide Sneaker.
Equally at home in casual workplaces or on weekend jaunts, the these insanely comfy kicks are designed with a machine washable, heathered knit upper that offers ample ventilation for breathability and optimal stretch for mobility.
The lightweight, durable outsole and foam insole deliver supreme comfort underfoot. The interior features a wool-polyester sock liner and heel pad for additional comfort and moisture management. It’s finished with stretch laces with T-lock aglets for a secure fit throughout the day while providing easy slip-on/slip-off access.
While designed for life before and après golf, I’ve actually walked more than a few rounds in these shoes. They’re just that comfortable. And in today’s casual business environment, the Hyperlight Glide Sneaker easily passes muster for socially distanced coffee shop or sidewalk café meetings.
Crown Crafted Look
The Crown Crafted Look offers contemporary sportswear blending cutting-edge technical materials with luxury fabrics. According to Peter Millar, it’s a modern, tailored approach to everyday performance apparel.
Communicating casual sophistication, the Stealth Performance Short leverages a high-twist performance fabric to deliver four-way stretch, moisture-wicking, water resistance, quick-dry and easy-care to deliver comfort and style in a variety of settings. It’s styled in a tailored fit, with a shorter rise than mainline offerings. The finish is highlighted by belt loops, quarter-top pockets and a zip fly with a button closure.
The Miles Performance Polo features a tailored fit and is crafted to deliver enduring comfort on and off the course. It’s constructed from an innovative performance-blend fabric with moisture-wicking, four-way stretch, odor resistance, easy-care and UPF 50+ sun protection. Yes, legs need protection, too.
A distinct stripe pattern is added for visual flair and is designed with a trimmer, tailored fit in the torso and sleeves. The Miles Performance Polo is finished with a Sean self-fabric collar and a two-button placket.
Here in Greenville, S.C., the land of Furman University (purple) and Clemson University (again, purple), we test drove the Deep Violet edition for 12 rounds in 90-plus degree heat and humidity. Its overall performance and moisture-wicking was unmatched by any polo we’ve tested outside of the Featherweight.
