As you know we spent last week at the PGA of BC Trade Show in Penticton. As usual I spent my time looking at the new clothing for 2009. Two trends that caught my attention were the brightly colored tops and grey as a basic (or the new black). Solid tops for men and women in various hues of orange and purple were common as were an assortment of blues and greens in both bold and pastel shades.

Grey shorts, pants, skorts and skirts for women (there seemed to be an even larger selection of bottoms then in years past) were made for pairing with the brights as a less obvious choice than black or white. As usual one of my favorite booths to browse was Fletcher Leisure Group including Sun Ice, Aureus and Aurea and Ashworth. Sun Ice outerwear never disappoints and this year’s styles, fabrics and colors were no exception.

If you are in the market for a new golf bag be sure to look for the NX-G Collections provided to golf shops by G & G Golf Company. Options include cart and stand bags in a wide range of styles and sizes, duffels, carry-alls and totes all of an exceptional quality, but the most attractive feature is the multiple logos on every piece that they sell. Jeff already has one of their bags and I plan to get one myself very soon.
