PEAKVISION Sunglasses Under New Ownership

I always love sharing information about products and brands that are either new or new to me. Part of the reason why I like to do what I do is to educate the general golfing public on products from both industry giants and those that are not.

PEAKVISION Sunglasses are a brand in the golf industry that I have heard of. Although, I have to admit that I have no practical knowledge or familiarity with them. I do intend to make that change. One of the intriguing technologies that the brand features is their patented “Zero/Zero Distortion Lens”. How many times as golfers have we left our sunglasses on and missed a putt because the green didn’t look quite right through our sunglasses? What happens? We remove them and place them on our heads. this is where “Zero/Zero” would come in handy. Also of note is that they have a “Jack Nicklaus Signature Line” of sunglasses available as well.

Carole Imperiale of PEAKVISION Sunglasses was kind enough to share this press release with me. Recently, PEAKVISION saw a change in ownership and this press release describes the transaction, their success at the 2018 PGA Merchandise Show and some of the brands plans for the future.

Named 1 of 9 top items at 2018 PGA Merchandising Show by Orlando Sentinel

(CONWAY, SC – February 14, 2018) — PEAKVISION, the sunglasses that took the golf world by storm with its unique, patented Dual-Zone/Zero Distortion lens, is under new ownership. David Feaser of Conway, South Carolina, who’s been in the sunglass business for thirty years as the owner of Shades of George (www.shadesofgeorge.com), bought PEAKVISION company assets and all the patents for the popular lenses from the original company in May 2017, and is running the company as President/CEO.

Nicholas Feaser is National Sales Manager of PEAKVISION. The father-son team is committed to growing the brand and giving back to the golf community.
The Orlando Sentinel named PEAKVISION one of the top nine items at the PGA Merchandising Show this year. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/golf/os-sp-golf-top-merchandise-0204-story.html

”PEAKVISION lenses have such great clarity and high definition that it provides three times more visual information on the green for an impeccable read,” says David Feaser. “Everywhere we go, golfers come up to me and tell me they’re the best sunglasses on the market. These sunglasses visually ‘Change you Game,’ and help you make better putts and save strokes on the green.”

“Let’s face it,” Feaser continues. “Your round is won or lost on the green so if you can save one or more strokes off your game, who wouldn’t want to try these sunglasses? Most golfers take their sunglasses off or put them on their hats or head while they putt. Your eyes during that moment are adjusting to more visual information, which makes putting even more difficult. With PEAKVISION Sunglasses, it provides a continuity of visual information and you don’t have to take the sunglasses off. In fact, you’ll want to leave them on!”

PEAKVISION offers a line of Jack Nicklaus-signature sunglasses as well. “The JN1 and the JN5 in the collection reflect the high standards of Jack Nicklaus himself,” adds Feaser. All PEAKVISION styles are available and are currently on-sale by ordering on-line at http://www.peakvision.com.

PEAKVISION will be partnering with the Myrtle Beach World Amateur in Myrtle Beach, S.C., August 27-31, 2018 by providing PEAKVISION Sunglasses to the winning golfers. The easiest way to order PEAKVISION is to go on-line at http://www.peakvision.com. PEAKVISION ships the same day the order is placed.

Antigua Summer 2017 Women’s Collection

I realize that according to the calendar we are technically into the second week of August. Unfortunately that means that summer is marching its way into fall. But there is good news as well. There are several weeks of gorgeous weather and up here we have seen 80’s in October. Not bad for the land of maple syrup, Peameal Bacon (which is REAL Canadian Bacon), and of course igloos. Of course I jest.

At any rate, I’ve wanted to start gearing more articles towards any/more of our golfers of the “gentler sex”. Yes ladies.. this article is for you. I realized some time ago that I was missing out on a huge demographic so I’m going to start catering more articles towards you.

In this press release that I received from Mary Beth Lacy of Mary Beth Lacy Inc (a golf public relations firm) long-time sports apparel brand Antigua Sportswear introduced their summer line for 2017. While I was in attendance at the 2017 PGA Merchandise this past January I had the absolute pleasure of talking to Antigua VP of Operations Pamela Miller about the upcoming season as it related to what Antigua was releasing. On the women’s apparel side of things the colours were vivid, bright and very appealing. Blues and yellows really dominated with a little orange along the way. I know that a majority of my female membership of a course that I was the Director of Golf at preferred sleeveless golf shirts and Antigua nailed these types of styles. At any rate please read the press release below.

 

Antigua Summer 2017 Women’s Golf Collection

PEORIA, AZ – The Antigua Group, Inc. – one of the nation’s leading designers and marketers of lifestyle and golf apparel under the distinguished Antigua brand – debuted its  2017 Women’s Golf Collection.
“The 2017 ladies golf collection is a continuation of the simplicity that the ’16 line embodied,” says Danielle Dellios, Antigua women’s designer. “In the new collection, fabrics and colors play a key role versus styling and silhouette. The market was calling for a fresh take on primary color, which was made possible by mixing colors together. Thus, each grouping consists of two primaries. For example, our new green color, Cypress, is mixed with a bright blue color, Cabana. There are a total of four-color combos, each mixing two primary colors. Every printed, striped or colorblocked style within the collection mixes the two colors, instead of using traditional neutral accents like grey or khaki. Combining two complementary primary shades really pops. Prints are as strong as ever in the marketplace, which meant creating unique artwork that could also be used to mix colors and give new life to basic styles.”

Styles
One of the new sleeveless styles, Mischief, features an asymmetrical fabric blocking detailusing a printed geometric pattern run at an angle across the top of the garment and a solid poly mesh fabric for the bottom half. Not only does the multi-color print allow women to wear multiple different-colored bottoms, the print’s asymmetry perfectly highlights a logo.
Another unique style, Sterling, is a long sleeve, half-zip pullover. It features ultra-soft peached jersey fabric, run in solid color for the body, and a space dye pattern for the insets. The space dye fabric incorporates two primary colors along with black and white, and also offers a new type of “heather” effect with the start and stop of the multi colored yarn.
Trust features an ultra-light, high-stretch woven fabric, along with a fewfeminine details such as rounded tail bottom and pin-tucks at the top shoulder. “For the first time ever, we’ve introduced a lightweight stretch woven polo,” says Dellios. Trust is a prime example of the big on-and-off-course trend currently going on. A woman can wear this stretch woven polo on the course and also on the weekends. It’s casual enough to don running errands but also sophisticated enough with its no-stitch self-fabric collar and covered button placket.
The ladies sleeveless Jewel style features Antigua’s one-of-a-kind geometric jacquard Desert Dry moisture wicking knit fabric.  The textured face and flat-back fabrication is smooth against the body and allows for optimal wicking performance at the face.  The sleeveless Jewel is one of Antigua’s best-selling pieces because the fabric has a unique drape that women of any age find flattering.  The hidden ribbon and snaps at the top shoulder seam are great for holding a bra strap in place for a worry-free swing.
Haven is one of the line’s more technical styles, combining a few simple details that make it appear more sporty and athletic. Silicone printing has been popular for a while. “But instead of running an all-over print, I used a single line of printed color around the zipper placket and collar,” says Dellios. “The color silicone print is placed on an all-white-bodied garment. The print on the collar gives the illusion of tipping with the tech feel of silicone, while the pointelle mesh pattern insets and sleeves ensure that the garment keeps the golfer cool and dry.”
Rogue is the most creative and fun polo style in the ’17 line. It mixes the entire color palette in an all-over linear sublimation print. This style can be worn with any color of our bottoms, along with any white or black bottom that a woman might already have at home. “Since the print is bold, I kept the styling traditional with a button placket and open cuff,” says Dellios. “I also ran the bold print from Rogue in our knit skort called Cinch. We have carried Cinch in solid colors for years, and it’s one of our best-selling bottoms, so it was a given to run it in the print.”
Leggings has become a popular trend in golf wear — many women prefer to wear leggings on the course, either by themselves or with a skirt over. “With the ath-leisure trend still big, I decided it would be a good opportunity to put a basic legging and skirt in the line,” says Dellios. The Backspin legging features a heavy peached jersey that provides maximum coverage and soft handfeel. It comes in solid black and black heather. Its counterpart is the Enclave skirt, a basic, lightweight stretch woven with a high-low hemline and zipper hip pockets at the front. It comes in black only.
