Galvin Green environmental efforts - UpCycle Edition
APEX

Leading golf apparel brand Galvin Green is enhancing its environmental credentials by introducing a collection of golf wear crafted using high-performance fabric that remains from the production of its comprehensive core range.

Presented as the UpCycle Edition, the collection involves a relatively small number of garments for men and women from a brand that has specialized in offering many sought-after limited editions in the past and sources most of its fabric from suppliers registered under the eco-friendly Bluesignâ scheme. This latest collection is available to golfers exclusively online and at most retail stockists from various dates this winter and only for as long as stocks last.

Commenting on the new collection, Acting CEO Nicholai Stein said: “It’s in our DNA to work with cutting-edge technologies to maximize the golfer’s performance, while looking to minimize the social and environmental impact at the same time. Now we’ve found a way to use perfectly fine fabric that is sometimes discarded during the production run to produce clean, cool and confident golf gear designed to appeal to young and ambitious golfers.”

BART

The first UpCycle Edition garment to become available this month is the BART (RRP £160/€160) - a half-zip jacket in versatile INTERFACE-1™ fabric. Totally windproof and extremely breathable, it keeps out windchill and sustains a core body temperature to enable the player to focus entirely on the game. It comes in eight colour choices.

Warm layer INSULA™ golf sweaters and snoods in Bluesignâ approved fabric will be sold in pairs from the end of November – the DARWIN & DALLAS (RRP £70/€80) for men and DEMI & DERORA (RRP £70/€80) for women.

The DARWIN round-neck sweater in INSULA™ stretch fabric provides a high degree of thermal insulation, but with very little bulk. This is achieved with a special micro-grid knitting technique that creates air chambers inside the fabric that are warmed by body heat. The easy-care garment is offered in Black and Chalkstone colour options, along with the matching DALLAS neck warmer.

The DEMI is a round-neck sweater for women and comes in four colour choices – Red Orange, Pacific Blue, Peacock and Berry – plus the DERORA neck warmer to match.

DEMI

In early December, the waterproof ALEC (RRP £230/€250) full-zip jacket in classic GORE-TEX® Paclite® Technology becomes available for on and off course wear. It comes with two concealed front pockets and adjustable cuffs. Extremely lightweight and highly breathable for optimum comfort.

At the same time, the APEX (RRP £245/€280) will be on offer as the ultimate full-zip waterproof golf jacket, packed with features to make you feel comfortable on the golf course, including two inside pockets and a chest pocket. Made in GORE-TEX® stretch fabric for maximum flexibility in the golf swing, it’s also lined with mesh lining for greater comfort and added warmth.
