Devereux golf apparel continues to evolve with a more inviting fit, great fabrics, and unique, versatile pieces.
One of my favorite parts of following the golf industry is watching companies evolve. My interest in Devereux is even greater because I’ve been writing about them since they launched in 2014. Their current line demonstrates their ability to adapt and improve while remaining committed to the founding vision of “Proper Threads.”
Head over to Devereux’s website and you’ll see something missing: dozens of fancy terms for the fabrics they use and their performance benefits. Rather than trying to convince you that a space age material will help you drive it farther, Devereux provides quality materials, great fit, and lets the clothes speak for themselves.
Their polos, the Oracle and the Kai (striped), offer similar performance but with different feel. Both do a good job wicking moisture, and each has enough stretch for your John Daly imitation. The Kai has a pique look, and the fabric is extremely light on the skin. The Oracle is softer with a little more heft. Both are in heavy rotation for me, but my preference is for the Oracle.
The shorts seen here, the Cruiser Hybrid and the Martin, show the range of options that Devereux provides within a relatively small collection. With a shorter 8.5″ inseam, the Martin short is designed for golfers who want a very neat, slim look. They have plenty of stretch for swinging and bending, but the look is classic. On the other hand, the Cruiser Hybrid (above) is unlike any golf short I’ve ever seen before. It has mesh pocketing and quick dry material so you can literally wear them from the pool to the first tee. With a slightly longer inseam, 9.5″, they also have a more laid back look.
Style & Fit
Before I say anything else, I have to give Devereux props for this hat. I can’t do the flat bill (they look weird on my big head), but I still love it. Anyone who has ever picked up a club knows that golf can be a four letter word sometimes.
One thing that Devereux has changed over the last three years is their fit. They started with a very slim cut and have moved toward something more inclusive. These pieces are still neat and well tailored, but you’ll no longer need to size up. For me, a medium shirt provides a very comfortable fit with sleeves that hit just below mid-bicep. The waist size on the shorts is spot on, but I did size up to get a little more room in the thighs.
Devereux’s style is one thing that has not changed. It doesn’t need to – it’s always been on point. Their collections continue to be limited with a focus on fresh colors and unique pieces. There are three shorts and three pants, each quite distinct, in four to five colors than range from conservative to bold and trendy. With the exception of the Maya polo, this year’s tops are more traditional with a focus on cool, tropical blues. Finally, one of my favorite things about Devereux is the discreet branding, as you can see below.
Devereux continues to bring together impeccable style, quality materials, and excellent fit. For these reasons, they remain one of my favorite golf apparel companies and the one whose next collection I’m most eager to see.
