Golf is now a much more mainstream sport than it once was perhaps with more and more young men taking up the sport and the fashion worn on the fairways and greens needed to move with the times and, thanks to awesome brands like Birds of Condor, it has done exactly that. Gone are the days when golf had a somewhat stuffy image – it’s now a much more vibrant sport where you can showcase your style with your choice of apparel. It’s great to see new brands like Birds of Condor emerge who dare to take the bull by the horns and create golfing apparel that looks great but also offers the sort of functionality that is essential.
Young, contemporary golf brand Birds of Condor are one of the leading new wave brands for headwear and apparel and they’ve already won us over here at The Coolector. Coloured by beach, street and a visual pop via their clever take on golf and quality products. Birds of Condor offer a massive point of difference connecting and inspiring new and next generation golfers to the game.
A Condor is a hole in one on a Par 5 and, as you might expect, is the rarest event in golf. Only a handful ever recorded, none of which have occurred in professional golf. It’s also known as a Triple Eagle and that’s what the Birds of Condor logo represents. Coming from a surfing and music background the question that set the tone for Birds of Condor was, what is the equivalent of a perfect tube where time slows down or a melody and bass line that stops you in your tracks? You know, the feel goods, the pure stoke and out of body experiences. It’s all about the birds. Your birdies, eagles, albatrosses and, yep, your Condors.
