Does your golfing wardrobe suffer from Khaki Overload? Do you match hats and shirts based on which shade of “Stone” most easily blends with your “Light Khaki” shorts? If so, then it’s time to let Nike take you out of your wardrobe default mode. The 2012 Nike Golf apparel collections feature contemporary colors and patterns in abundance with each item constructed from the latest performance materials designed to optimize comfort and enhance your playing experience.
Introduced with Nike’s new apparel is the Nike Contrast Stitch Cap, also known as the Nike Bling Cap. This line features a traditional light structure ball cap style with contrast stitching for a contemporary look. The “Bling” comes in the form of a stylized swoosh with just a hint of gloss to it, so the logo stands apart. Bling calls to mind something flashy, or even a bit ostentatious, but the new Bling Hats are better thought of as being made-to-match. Available in Action Red, Bright Blue, Gym Green and Pewter Gray, the new Bling Caps won’t conflict with your wardrobe, rather they’ll complement it.
Today’s trend in men’s golf apparel has been toward more color variety in shirts, pants, belts and, yes, hats. Nike Golf leads the way with more color, and more color combinations, than anyone. Nike offers distinct “color stories” in each of its apparel collections and its new Bling Caps are designed to match with colors in each collection. Nike Tour Performance golf wear comes in solids, stripes, accented solids and plaids. The cool thing about the Bling hats is that they easily match up with a solid color shirt, for example, and a pair of plaid or striped shorts or pants; or hat + striped shirt + solid shorts; or hat + solid shirt with contrasting collar. In each instance, the hat doesn’t have to match the principal color of the shirt, or even the shorts because Nike features each Bling Hat color available both as a main color choice in some garments, and as an accent color in others. Either way, the colors are uniform.
For instance, let’s say you like Nike’s Gym Green Sport Pattern Shorts. What goes with those? Well, white obviously works, but if you want to venture into the land of contemporary style just go to the top of the page of the Discount Golf World website and type in the words “Gym Green” in the Search box. You’ll then find every item of Nike apparel featuring that color, ether as the principal color or as an accent. This means that the green in each item listed, including the Bling Cap, will match Nike’s Gym Green Shorts, so you can easily find a Nike shirt, and other items to wear with your shorts. Add to your new green ensemble a Nike Center Bar Reversible Belt with a pair of Nike Tour Premium II Golf Shoes and you are ready to hit the course with some style.
If you want to stay a little old school, there’s no reason to let that be boring. Everyone has black or neutral pants and shorts as a golf wardrobe staple. First, there’s no reason your basic pant or shorts can’t have a little flair. Nike takes care of this with the new Flat Front Tech Pants with its classic fit, Dri-Fit technology and v-notched hem so your basic pant looks anything but basic. Match those with the new Nike Geo Chest Stripe Polo in Bright Blue, a Swoosh Logo Plaque Buckle Belt and Lunar Control Golf Shoes and you’ll look as if you’re ready for the Tour, even if your game isn’t.
These are just a couple examples of the myriad ways Nike allows the golfer to mix and match among product lines with consistent colors crossing over in each line so there’s no variation or shade differences. Have a shirt in Nike Action Red or with an Action Red accent or stripe? You can be assured the Action Red Bling Hat will match, as will the Action Red shorts and pants. And if you’re not quite ready for those Action Red, Bright Blue or Gym Green pants or shorts, you’ll find plenty of style in the Pewter Gray combinations.
