Spring Colors Punctuate State Traditions and Kentwool

Quality Apparel to Complement the Season

Spring is in the air and so are brightly colored golf fashions.

State Traditions offers products that are ideal for gift-giving or just showing some home pride. The Birmingham-based manufacturer is steeped in detail, quality and sophistication, with a wearable lineup that includes button-down shirts, caps, belts, T-shirts and more.

ST’s golf apparel and accessories will thrill even the most fastidious fashionista. And everything is adorned with colorful state logos or silhouettes to showcase a golfer’s alma mater, state or nation.

The merchandise is first class, reasonably priced and promotes all 50 U.S. states, plus Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Brazil and more. Colorado’s line includes caps, koozies, Croakies, stickers and iPhone cases, but some states also include a roundup of glassware, cufflinks, dog leashes and collars, neckwear and smartphone cases.

For information or to order, go online to www.statetraditions.com or call 205-254-8933.


Somewhat less apparent but no less essential are what most of us wear on our bare feet. Kentwool is a 171-year-old, family owned company that uses a proprietary blend of fine merino wool and high-tech fibers to create premium-grade socks, especially for golfers.

The South Carolina-based manufacturer uses gee-whiz terms like “WINDspun air-infused technology,” “micro-climate systems” and “micro-stress points” to describe its socks and benefits, but bottom line: the products are fabulously comfortable, long wearing and backed by a blister-free guarantee.

Two-time Masters champ Bubba Watson and Matt Kuchar—plus many other Tour pros—are Kentwool-wearing converts. The moisture-wicking blends are available in a variety of models and, of course, bright and bold colors for both men and women.

To purchase Kentwool golf socks ($20-$25 retail) visit your local pro shop or go online to www.kentwoolsocks.com.
