New Galvin Green
Posted at August 2, 2012
Galvin Green are quite simply the best designer brand for golf waterproofs and we take a look at the new jacket styles and apparel included in the brand new Autumn/Winter 2012 collection.
Galvin Green is considered the 'most desirable clothing brand' amongst golfers in the UK and Ireland and it's clear to see why with the current AW12 range which has just landed at Golfposer HQ! Some fresh colour combinations have been introduced to the collection for the new season alongside a few new styles of jackets, golf trousers and shirts - as worn on tour by the experienced Peter Hanson of Sweden and up and coming Dane Thorbjorn Olesen!
On Day Three of the Open Championship at Royal Lytham and St Annes, 22 year old Thorbjorn lined up alongside Tiger Woods - a match-up which inevitably brought with it increased attention and expectations from the mass following Tiger attracts at almost every championship he plays. Olesen handled the occasion like any top class professional though, carding a round of 71 which was just one shot behind Woods himself - only lost on the very last hole. We believe this talented young man could be one to watch in the next few years after winning the Sicilian Open back in April to become the youngest winner of a European Tour Event this year!
The Multi-Layer Concept has been championed by Galvin Green for several seasons now and we love the variety that this ideology brings to the Galvin Green collection. The Multi-Layer Concept is based on simple principles - selecting the correct combination of garments for the perfect outfit in any climate - but the design team at Galvin have used some fantastic technology to make this idea extremely effective for golf. Online at Golfposer, you can shop the full range of Outer Shells, Thermal Layers (for warmth or coolness) and Dry Base Layers to create your perfect Multi-Layer outfit for any golfing conditions.
'Outer Shells' include both Gore-Tex Waterproof Golf Jackets and also Gore Windstopper Soft Shell Jackets. There are two new fully waterproof jacket styles - the Axl and the Adam - whilst there are also new colour ways of previous jacket styles for 2012. The Axl jacket is a Half Zip Performance Shell and features several adjustment properties to provide you with the perfect fit and also shows off Galvin Green branding at the rear, neck and also the front zip placket. The new Adam style of jacket is a Full Zip Performance Shell and is available in three trendy colour combinations for AW12.

Windstopper golf jackets are perfect for those cooler Autumn months leading up to the Winter season, each composed of an ultra thin, laminated textile layer which is fully windproof yet breathable at the same time. The jackets also include clever thermoregulatory technology which maintains your body temperature on the course at an optimum performance level. The Boyd Full Zip Body Warmer, the Brando Windstopper and also the Bale jacket are all brand new for Autumn/Winter 2012 along with a several new colour options of the popular Half Zip Burns Soft Shell Jacket. The Bale jacket looks fantastic in the stylish Black and White combination and is the ultimate Windstopper jacket, with a special four way stretch funtion for excellent freedom of movement and comfort throughout the golf swing.
'Thermal Layers' include both mid-layer sweaters such as the Dean Insula jumpers for warmth but also Ventil8 polo shirts as a warm weather option. Ventil8 fabric is extemely light, soft and flexible and offers unparalleled breathability and moisture transportation around the body. The brand new Merwin shirt also includes a unique body mapping system which specifically targets areas prone to excessive perspiration - in order to increase ventilation and maintain the highest level of comfort possible during your round. Ventil8 technology is also included in the classic Ned trousers which return for this golfing season with some fashionable new colours such as green and plum - allowing you to match your favourite shirt with a trendy pair of Galvin Green golf trousers. The other brand new style of polo shirt is the very smart Mitchell which is available in three colour options, whilst the Golfposer favourite Max Tour shirt is back and available in more colours than ever so you can find just the look you want!
The final tier of the Multi-Layer concept is the Base Layer shirts and leggings and these will be available both online and in-store very soon.
