Be distinctive on the course with Nobis headwear
Golfers wear a lot of hats. But they don’t wear a lot of kinds of hats. Or at least, they don’t anymore.
There was a time when some golfers were known as much by their headwear as by their swings. Hogan had his ivy cap, Snead had his coconut straw hat, and Chi-Chi had his fedora. Norman had his akubra, and Floyd his visor. And of course some golfers, like Nicklaus and Miller, often played hatless in their primes.
Today? Well, pretty much all you see is baseball caps, with the occasional visor or painter cap thrown in.
Recently, I discovered a very posh yet fashion-forward Canadian outerwear company called Nobis, and their extensive line of headwear intrigued me.
Being from Canada, Nobis (Latin for “us") offers a wide range of “tuques” (stocking caps) and other wintery hats. But it’s the line of ivy caps that caught my eye for the golf course.
The Hunter and Xander styles ($40 each) are great for golf, with super-soft fabric and proprietary, fast-drying sweat bands. They feel like you’re not wearing a hat at all, but still keep the sun off your head and out of your eyes. The Hunter even has a little pocket on the bill onto which you can clip a divot repair tool.
Too many golfers today seem to have interchangeable swings and styles. Don’t be one of them. The game is a lot more fun when you make it your own.
Nobis Hunter Ivy Cap offers style, comfort, and functionality for the golf course.
