Stylish, fun, comfortable, functional and organic? I am a supporter of saving the environment and â€œgoing green.” I recycle my canned and paper goods, I bring my green bag to the grocery store, and I receive my statements online rather than in the mail. I thought I did all I could to help save the planet I just never know that meant looking great on the golf course too.
In our search to find bridgewear that closes the gap between athletic and everyday wear we stumbled across a small Canadian company called Doppelgang Fashion Inc. We contacted a representative of the company, Ryan Totten, to find out more. He spoke to us in detail and also sent us this information:
â€œDoppelgang Performance Golf Fashion brings sexy sophistication to the links with high quality, technologically advanced, environmentally aware modern fabrics and designs to boost your game and your style, wherever you choose to play.
We are launching this line with uniqueness in mind and we expect to stand out in the crowd. Our styles are forward and so is our demeanor. Let’s face it, women’s golf fashion was not lost, it was never there.
We are here, we’ll see you out there, and so will everyone else.”
If you check out the Doppelgang website you can read how some of their shirts are made from a fabric derived from a biomass of crab and shrimp shells. After learning about the make up of some of the different fabrics used to make the clothing I couldn’t wait to try them out.
It felt like my birthday when the package arrived. There were four items inside:
1. A Â¾ sleeved black shirt with a white collar
2. A pink soy fiber crossover top
3. A black â€œ floating pouch skort”
4. White cuffed capri’s.
I can’t get over how amazing it is that the clothing is environmentally friendly, but this is a fashion review so let’s get to the meat and potatoes, the style! CLICK ALL PICTURES TO SEE ENTIRE PHOTO
First out of the box was the Â¾ sleeved black top. My immediate reaction was â€œhow cute!” Talk about fashion forward, the top looked like something I would wear to work or a night out with my girlfriends. I have never seen golf apparel like this on the store shelves before. The first thing I noticed was the collar, there were no buttons and no zippers, which I LOVED. I have mentioned before that I do not like high neck clothing, I feel like I am suffocating, this top allowed me to breathe. The fabric was tight but not too clingy. When you move, it moves which allows for a clean follow through with no need to readjust. Another great feature of the fabric; it’s sweat resistant and antibacterial. Now I know it’s not lady like to talk about perspiration, but come on ladies let’s be honest we all know 18 holes in the heat can make you sweat, and there is nothing more embarrassing then sweat marks. On a scale from 1-10 I give this shirt a 12.
The next item out of the box was the pink soy fiber crossover top. I am sure you are wondering is this shirt really made of soy? The answer would be yes, they are 56% soy, 36% cotton and 8% spandex, but 100% adorable! As soon as you put the shirt on you feel like you are wearing your pj’s it’s that comfortable. The crossover top almost has an Asian influence, it’s so stylish and so unique I can’t wait to order it in other colors. If you have ever wished you could spend your entire day in your pajamas but look like a million bucks than your wish has come true. The neck on this shirt cuts a little high for what I would normally prefer, but surprisingly it didn’t make me feel like I was suffocating, I actually didn’t mind it at all.
Now that we have covered the shirts let complete the outfit with some pants. I was very excited to check out the floating pouch skort, I had never seen anything like it. The best way to describe it is a pair of shorts with a front and back flap. The front and back flaps have hidden pockets with zippers so you can hold some extra golf balls or tee’s. Of all the products I tried this would be my least favorite. I think the concept behind it is great, it’s just not my taste. It is incredibly well-designed and I highly recommend checking them out based on material, comfort, and functionality. For my body type it wasn’t a look that worked for me, I wish it did because I loved how unique it was.
The last item was the cuffed white capri’s. What can I say, they were AMAZING! I loved everything about them. I loved the way they looked, I loved the way they felt, I loved the big cuffs, I loved that with a pair of heels and either of the two tops (mentioned above) I had a great everyday outfit, I simply loved them. A really great feature is the extra long four inch cuffs. They are made that way so you can store extra balls and tees in them, how clever. Hands down, this is my must buy item of the group, I promise you will not be disappointed.
Anyone who reads my column each week, knows that my favorite thing about golf is the fashion. One of my other favorite things in life are bargains. That is where Doppelgang has us covered. At their current prices, these clothes are as described. AMAZING! But they can do better for all my readers. They are offering all THP Readers 40% anything on their site right now. All of their clothes have a limited run and to get them at these kind of discounts, is simply almost too good to be true. When you check out, you will use the code THPMEMBER and the 40% will be taken off of your order. Keep in mind that due to the limited nature of these outfits, they do not keep a lot in stock in each size, so act quickly. I have my eye on a few things already. You can check them all out Here. Just click the link that says shopping.
The site is having a problem processing the code. Speaking with them, the solution is that once you place your order, email firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know you are a reader and give them the order number. They will take care of the rest….Sorry for the confusion.
This week I have a golf lesson in the evening after work on Tuesday. That day I will definitely have on the white capri’s and one of the tops. I can go straight from work to the course and not have to change. Not only will I be the best dressed at work that day, but on the course afterward as well. If you have never experienced what exceptional golf apparel looks like and feels like, I urge you to check Doppelgang out. You will not be disappointed. Thanks for reading.
