The Montreal-based Forden Golf has one of the more distinctive logos in the game, evoking the game’s highly coordinated movements and the fine margins which determine success or failure. But there’s something equally meticulous to the brand’s approach to designing apparel. Even in Forden’s latest “Aprés Golf” collection, which is a lineup of a understated essentials, signs of a perfectionist are present.
Garments are pre-washed to avoid shrinking, fits are intentionally oversized and almost every item is either made in the USA or uses USA-grown cotton. The Essential T-Shirt, which comes in white, black or navy, uses heavyweight 6.5 ounce cotton that’s been spun with an open end for a slightly uneven hand feel. Moving over to sweatpants, Forden provides both elastic cuff or straight leg variations to suit individual taste. The ones with elastic cuffs have black, navy and off-white as color choices, while the straight leg swaps out off-white for grey. Similar hits of branding are found throughout the collection, with a Swingman used as a front-facing chest or hip logo and “FordenGolf” spelled out on the back or down the side of legs.
Other highlights include the Essential Crewneck, especially the brown variety, and the Essential LS Polo which is the most golf-inspired piece. The full collection ranges between $45 and $120 USD and can be purchased on FordenGolf.com.
