This week, many golfers will prepare for the 139th Open Championship at the Barclay’s Scottish Open at Loch Lomond Golf Club. As we prepare for a two week stretch in the U.K., let’s take a look at some of Nike Golf Europe’s best apparel.
At first glance, Nike Golf Europe has three core differences from the U.S. apparel line – flare, cut, and color. With Nike Golf Europe, there appears to be greater creativity, a more fitted cut, and often a mix of bright color combinations. Here are some things you won’t find stateside:
I first wrote about this cardigan in my best dressed post, where Simon Dyson sported the all-black version at The Masters. This cardigan features a 6-button placket with cuffs and bottom hem, as well as two front pockets and a small swoosh under the left front pocket. The back features a subtle body map pattern that runs straight down from neck to bottom. This version is called Stadium Green, but also available in all-black.

I’m not sure how this Sail/Mulberry/Marina Blue sweater would do in the U.S., but for those looking to be noticed on the course, this one is for you. The cotton/poly blend sweater features a deeper rib knit collar to allow your polo collar to be unrestricted and a gradient yarn dyed pattern. For those who think this is too loud, it also comes in a black and white version.

In my first job, my CEO would often wear all-embroidered pattern shirts and pants. To me, it really symbolized that old-world country club feel. With this polo, Nike has matched new technology with tradition style. Also available in Team Orange with orange embroidery.

This polo bears resemblance to the Tiger Woods Platinum line. With a 3-button snap button placket, self fabric collar with partial collar stand, and shorter sleeves, this polo will not restrict your swing and will give you maximized comfort. The polo is also a poly/spandex blend and like most Nike Golf Europe polos, it features the swoosh on the chest. Also available in Black and Sail (white).

Truly European, these pants feature a flat front, button closure, slash pockets, double welt back pockets, and double belt loops. These will fit tighter so they are particularly good for the skinnier folks. Also available in white and black.

I personally look ridiculous in anything but a traditional cap, but for those who can pull this off, this Gatsby hat is sure to get you noticed on the course. Available in Mulberry (shown), charcoal and black.
