Callaway® Apparel Launches Fall 2018 Collections

The fall season is here. While the leaves are falling off of the trees and everything is starting to slowly fall into dormancy it doesn’t mean an end to bright colors. After all, before the leaves fall from the branches that line the fairways they show off bright oranges, yellows and reds. But they aren’t the only thing bright this autumn.

Callaway Golf Apparel recently launched its Fall 2018 Collection and the splashes of color are vivid. Color palettes consisting of bright blues (Hawaiian Ocean) and what they call “Bittersweet” highlight the collection. The orange in the “Bittersweet Collection” looks a lot like coral. The collection as one might expect features layering pieces as well to help keep you warm as fall golf turns into winter hibernation. A sad reality.

Please see the press release below for full details. Thank to Stuart Goldstein of RG Narrative Inc. for sharing.

Bald Head Blues Raising Funds to Help in the Relief of Hurricane Florence

BALD HEAD ISLAND, NC – September 26, 2018 – Bald Head Blues, a golf and island inspired apparel company distinguished by its golf cart with surfboard logo, announced today that the company is selling “BHI in my mind” t-shirts to raise money for the clean-up efforts of Bald Head Island (BHI) which unfortunately remains uninhabitable due to the winds and rain of Hurricane Florence.

Hurricane Florence hit BHI with 100+ mph winds and over 35″ of rain. Early visits back to the island have reported extensive wind and flood damage, with as much as 4-5 ft. of standing water in places. Brunswick County remains in a State of Emergency. Re-entry won’t be possible until the water is cleared out but recovery crews are working diligently to make this happen.

There is an urgent need for pumps and other supplies, so Bald Head Blues is donating 100% of the profits made on a special t-shirt “BHI in my mind” to the cleanup efforts on BHI. These are available at www.baldheadblues.com and offered in five sizes: Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, and XX-Large. Each cost $36.00 with free shipping. Please note these are pre-sales and orders are expected to be delivered by October 10th.

“We are proud to aid in the recovery of Bald Head Island and its infrastructure. As of today, we’ve generated over $35,000 and hope to raise a great deal more. Please invite you friends and family to help us restore the community of BHI,” commented Bald Head Blues Founder & CEO, Claude Pope.

 

ABOUT BALD HEAD BLUES:

“Clothing for Coasting”

For over 25 years, the Pope family has enjoyed the wonder and majesty of Bald Head Island with its acres of beaches, untouched marshes, maritime forests, pristine harbor and casual coastal lifestyle. It’s a special place where nature’s abundance and casual lifestyle inspired the formation of Bald Head Blues. An apparel company that embraces the island’s extraordinary experience.

Unique to the island is its mode of transportation. Locals and tourists alike use electric golf carts to get around and more than often they are hauling beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and surf boards. This island lifestyle where a quick ride to the beach becomes an adventure is represented by the Bald Head Blues logo.

All pieces in the Bald Head Blues Collections are fun, casual, colorful and classic. They employ high performance fabrics, refined designs and an inimitable attention to details. The new 2019 Spring Collection which include Aruba, Coral, Lavender, Regatta and Spring magnify the island’s vibrant colors. Each series is bold, fresh, and energetic.

Bald Head Blues is known for their coastal and island style but their collections also incorporate technology like “Comfort Flex” which combines pima cotton with the performance and stretch of spandex. For rounds played in the heat, Bald Head Blues has utilized “Comfort Dry.” This polyester/spandex blend is moisture wicking, lightweight and has a 4-way stretch for ultimate performance. The new Albatross Polo is also treated with a UPF 50+ for UV protection.

These high performance technologies and fabrics are worn by Bald Head Blues brand ambassadors and PGA TOUR Professionals Joel Dahmen and Martin Piller. They both face extreme weather changes on the tour and their Bald Head Blues polos keep them comfortable and ready to compete.

Bald Head Blues transports you to a place you want to be – even if you aren’t there. Maybe it’s to the golf course, the tennis courts or on the beach. For the Pope Family, its Bald Head Island. Where do you want to go?

 

Until The Next Tee!!
