Manhattan’s Leading Golf Retailer Showcases British Heritage Brand for Autumn/Winter 2014
(LEICESTER, England) – British heritage brand Wolsey – one of the world’s oldest existing clothing brands and a pioneer of premium men’s apparel for sporting endeavors – has premiered its AW14 Sportsman collection at New York Golf Center, Manhattan’s golf retail authority.
“These garments are perfectly suited to my sophisticated customers who embrace new, leading-edge looks with a classic twist,” says Pam Graniero, a buyer, consultant and merchandiser for New York Golf Center. “The rich fabrics and fine tailoring ensure the Wolsey line will be something they’ll enjoy equally on and off the course.”
Boasting several garments made in the United Kingdom, Wolsey Sportsman combines traditional British menswear colors with minimal and strong textual patterns to create a “less-is-more” aesthetic. The line offers a silhouette that is more middle ground than slim, with many pieces relying on Invista THERMOCOOL technology that dual regulates body temperature to ensure the sportswear is “fit for purpose.”
“In one of the world’s most fashionable cities, New York Golf Center has long been the go-to destination for golfers seeking the latest clothing and gear,” says Wayne Webster, Wolsey’s Golf Sales Director. “Wolsey aligns perfectly with the curated portfolio of brands selected by Pam and her colleagues.”
Filmed this summer, the Wolsey “Pioneers” video (http://youtu.be/JAab95avxY4) highlights the company’s team of inspiring brand ambassadors – legendary designer Johan Lindeberg, Tour players Robert Rock, Tom Lewis and James Heath, and polar explorer Alex Hibbert. Each champions Wolsey’s spirit of adventure that stretches back to the company’s founding in 1755.
The modern team of pioneers, which also includes rising Tour star Michael Weaver, continues a Wolsey tradition that traces directly back to historic adventurers like Sir Ernest Shackleton and Captain Robert Falcon Scott, as well as golfing greats Peter Allis and Tony Jacklin.
