Lyle & Scott Golf Wear

Mark Twain once famously quipped, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.” He may have forgotten his time in Scotland where the notoriously chilly and unpredictable weather often keeps golfing greats bundled up during the British Open. But the venerable Lyle & Scott, which began making knitwear in Scotland back in 1874, knows a few things about how to keep a body warm. For the past five decades or so, the brand has focused largely on golf wear, clothes that have been worn by such top-tier stars as Seve Ballesteros, Gary Player and Tony Jacklin. In 2001, the brand was acquired and its headquarters moved to London. The company is trying to promote a new image to Americans, but we enjoy the fact that the Lyle & Scott name remains synonymous with quality and style.

The company’s golf wear is beautifully made from a mix of lush fabrics meant to keep you dry and comfortable, each item emblazoned with a stately golden eagle on the breast, perhaps inspiring its wearer to shoot two under par. From simple polo shirts with slim plackets (starting at 65 euros, or about $73) to the handy and stylish gilet (what Americans would call a vest) with PrimaLoft thermal qualities to keep your core warm and no sleeves to impede your swing (110 euros, or $124) to a full-size stretch quilted jacket (170 euros, or $192) meant to keep you warm and dry, even when a two-club wind comes howling from the North Sea.
