Company Spotlight – Royal Golf Apparel

Spotlight9 (2)

Just as the equipment side of the golf industry continues to grow, so too does the apparel side. THP was recently able to get a closer look at some of the offerings from “Royal Golf”, an apparel company which looks to make headway with golfers through modern aesthetic styles and materials combined with an affordable price point. The company sent in three different pieces for THP to take a closer look at.

In-Hand Thoughts:

The 1/4 zip was easily the favorite piece which Royal Golf sent in when it came to design, quality, and fit. The pullover is poly based but is firmly on the denser end of the spectrum when it comes to weight, not so heavy to impede motion, but enough to really keep the core warm while out on a colder day.  The fit is definitely more “traditional”, particularly through the chest and provided a decent bit of play there for this reviewer. Those who shy away from more tapered Euro-style cuts would do good to look here. Over several wash and wear cycles the garment held up very well in terms of keeping color and shape. That said the material and texture is one which historically can snag if not aware of surroundings, there were no issues for this reviewer, but it is something to keep an eye on. At $44.99 the cost to quality ratio is a win here for the consumer.

Imperial Polo – Teal

Company Description:

The all new Imperial Polo by Royal Golf sports a poly/spandex blend providing a soft, breathable, and forgiving fabric leaving you with a comfortable fit. Pairing this with an exceptional colorway, the Imperial Polo is a must have addition to your golf wardrobe.

  • 92% poly 8% spandex fabric
  • Teal Primary Color, with White and Mint Green accent
  • Royal back stripe
  • Embroidered sleeve logo
  • $29.99

In-Hand Thoughts:

The Imperial polo is a relatively simple and clean multi block stripe design featuring a combination of white with two different tones of teal. The shirt has a traditional two-button placard with somewhat elongated collar featuring a sharper front shape. Style wise, it’s a pretty versatile garment which could be worn on and off the course if it fits the individuals preferred style. The material is actually a very nice overall weight and thanks to its makeup does feature wicking capabilities. One curious aspect on the design is the “Royal Back Stripe” which unlike some other brands appears to simply be aesthetic here, but it does look kind of cool. The cut is definitely traditional and features more room in the shoulders, chest, and core than many offerings. In terms of quality the stitching held up fine in time spent with the shirt and for the price point ($29.99) this makes it a potentially interesting option for those who like the aesthetics of the polo.

Triumph Polo – Navy Blue

Company Description:

The Triumph Polo by Royal Golf sports a poly/spandex blend providing a soft, breathable, and forgiving fabric leaving you with a comfortable and exceptional fit. Along with this, the Triumph Polo adds a unique gradient tri-stripe design, making it a must add to your golf attire. 

  • 92% poly 8% spandex fabric
  • Navy Blue with White accent
  • Royal back stripe
  • Embroidered sleeve logo
  • $29.99

In-Hand Thoughts:

The Triumph by comparison to the Imperial polo is a much more graphically based design featuring a navy sleeve and back panel with white based front and fading in/out chest graphics. This shirt also has a traditional two-button placard with a more pointed collar akin to what you see on FootJoy polos. The same material is utilized here (poly based) and it has a nice weight to it. As with the other polo offering THP got in-hand, the overall cut is traditional in shape with plenty of room through the shoulders, chest, and core. While this may not be everyone’s style with the current trends, it is a very nice look/fit, particularly at the $29.99 price point.  

Parting Thoughts:

Options are always a good thing, particularly when it comes to apparel where everyone has a different kind of style from the next. Royal Golf is entering the arena offering solid quality at a very reasonable price point. It will undoubtedly be interesting to see how there styles continue to evolve in the future.
