Most readers of my reviews know that I tend be drawn to some of the more flashy or trendy clothing on the golf market; so when Bunker Mentality reached out to AGG to test their products I was more than excited. Normally when we talk about golf clothing there are two styles we find, the very traditional and the Loud (LoudMouth or Royal & Awesome); however with Bunker Mentality’s clothing line you get a little of both which I really like. One style polo might be very loud with crazy colors and designs, but a traditional look and the next might be very traditional in style and color but very loud with perfectly placed logo’s. The best way I could sum up Bunker Mentality for our readers, is Bunker Mentality is the Abercrombie of the golf world. That isn’t a knock on Bunker Mentality that is just what I think of when I see their line of clothing, very hip and trendy apparel to look good on or off the course. I would expect Rock Stars that love golf to wear Bunker Mentality for their next round.
About Bunker Mentality
Normally I try to do a little write up on the company but Bunker Mentality has it written so perfectly on their website that I figured I would just share that because it really rings true.
“Old Game, New Breed…”creating new traditions and future classics in golf apparel”.
Bunker Mentality is a brand for golf addicts, people with a love of the great game and who have a different mentality. Our clothing is designed without compromise for a ‘Playa’ who has an individual personality and lifestyle and is looking for a new level of taste and substance in golf apparel. Our love of the great game means everything we do is designed to celebrate the game and encourage more people to take part. Bunker Mentality is a reflection of our own and our customers golf life style and ‘mentality’.
Devoted to Golf, Dedicated to Style”
Bunker Mentality is another company that was founded in the UK that is now making heavy progress in America. They are 100% independent so they do not have a bigger company overlooking them telling them what direction they need to go, so they really are at the forefront of golf apparel innovation.
About The Clothes
Before we get into the review of the clothing, one thing I want to point out is that if you have some flab Bunker Mentality clothing is going to enhance that, not hide it. These clothes look amazing, and bring fantastic flare to the game but unless you have a physique like Tiger Woods the clothing will fit snug on you.
Bunker Mentality’s polo’s are very well made and durable, made of 100% cotton, these shirts are durable quick drying and keep you cool on even the hottest of days. One thing I really like about Bunker Mentality is they offer a few of their polo’s designs in a long sleeve version. It seems more and more companies are getting away from this, because of the Under Armour or Nike type long sleeve compression under shirts, but every once in a while a long sleeve polo is nice to have. These shirts are loud in different ways, they have logo’s or designs in various places. For every Polo on their site they have a hat that will go with it, as well as a belt, pants and jacket this makes picking out a matching and eye catching golf outfit easy for the fashion novice.
Bunker Mentality offers T-Shirts as well, the shirts are 100% cotton and sure to have you answering the question, where did you get that? Whenever you wear it. My personal favorite is the Whose Your Caddy, Tshirt, but they have all sorts of designs to show your passion for Golf on and now off the course.
The best thing in my opinion about Bunker Mentality is their jackets. They make some amazing jackets that will keep you dry and warm on the course, but looking stylish and fun at the 19th hole or even out and about matched with a pair of jeans. For the most part their jackets are either 100% polyester or 100% nylon depending on the style of jacket you get, both are machine washable and will keep you dry in wet weather as well as warm in colder weather. Around here we have weird winters, sometimes you can go skiing and only need a light jacket and I think these Jackets are a statement maker on the slopes as well as the golf course.
We will be doing more reviews on Bunker Mentality, so check back often; look for a review on their pants/shorts, belts, hats and even their women’s line of clothing.
Are you a Rockstar at heart but a weekend golfer in real life? Grab some Bunker Mentality gear and show of your inner Rock Star while enjoying a beautiful day on the course. This gear is well made, durable and will turn heads on the course.
