Payne Stewart Collection to Launch This Week

LOS ANGELES, CA – The 25th anniversary of Payne Stewart’s unforgettable victory at the 1999 U.S. Open at Pinehurst Resort will be commemorated this week when Pinehurst No. 2 course again plays host to our national championship. Stewart’s fashion made him one of the most identifiable players on the PGA Tour and, fittingly, his legacy will again take center stage with the official launch of the Payne Stewart Collection.

The men’s luxury clothing line will honor the indelible style and grace of one of the game’s most revered figures, whose life was tragically cut short in a plane crash four months after his dramatic victory at Pinehurst. Dubbed the “All-Time Best Dressed Golfer,” Stewart’s influence went beyond his sporting achievements. His personality, charisma, and class left an enduring mark on the world of golf and fashion, now immortalized in a selection of clothing and accessories that capture his iconic look.

Joey Rodolfo, a 40-year veteran of the fashion industry, working with both golf and lifestyle brands, designed the extensive luxury collection, which has many versatile pieces in this first limited-edition offering.  Two distinct marks will be featured: the iconic fist pump, which will be on the chest or sleeve and the Payne Stewart signature, which will be used selectively.

Sure to appeal to golfers of all ages, the Payne Stewart Collection boasts an array of meticulously crafted products: From the classic Signature Sunday striped golf shirts to the sleek Victory quarter-zip, and Sunday wind shirt, and the versatile Payne Stewart packable jacket, each piece embodies Stewart’s distinctive flair for fashion and tradition.The signature Payne Stewart Tam will add a touch of Stewart’s distinctive charm to the look. Stewart’s cap from his ’99 U.S. Open win, along with the red-white-and-blue outfit he wore that Sunday, will be on display in the new Payne Stewart Collection shop in the Village of Pinehurst the week of the U.S. Open.

“Our luxury collection is about capturing Payne Stewart’s unparalleled style and spirit that made him stand out on the golf course,” said Mark Sutcliffe, Chairman of Posse Apparel, parent company of the Payne Stewart Collection.  A successful entrepreneur, Sutcliffe has significant experience with many top brands in the gaming, film, and apparel industries.

Additional products that will be released over the next several weeks include the iconic Payne Stewart Plus Four pants and trousers, both made with luxe Italian fabrics. Five-pocket performance pants and solid and fist pump print five-pocket shorts, offering versatility and comfort for every occasion, will also be part of the Collection.

Aaron Stewart, the 35-year-old son of Payne and Tracey Stewart, serves as the brand’s ambassador and said, “It’s exciting to see my dad’s flair for fashion come to life in the Payne Stewart Collection.”

The Payne Stewart Collection will launch today through the brand’s website and debut in green grass pro shops this summer.
