PXG Fall/Winter 2022 Golf Apparel Review

50 Words or Less

The PXG Fall/Winter 2022 apparel collection covers the fashion gamut – from classic black pants to fashion forward print polos.  Performance driven materials that also exude comfort.

Introduction

The Fall/Winter 2022 apparel collection from PXG has four distinct segments with intriguing names:  Essentials, The Edit, Coming In Hot, and Darkness.  Staying true to the PXG brand, black is the predominant color.  But even though the season’s offerings may be short on color choices, it’s far from lacking in style options.  Let’s jump in.

Style

As you can see from the photos, there’s a fashion forward element to the Fall/Winter 2022 collection.  Renee Parson, President & Executive Creative Director for PXG Apparel had this to say about the collection:  “eclectic style – fusing comfort, performance, and fashion into statement pieces with subtle Western flair.”

From the core Essentials segment, the Paneled ¼-Zip Pullover and Classic Golfer Pants each feature a distinctive look.  The contrast stitching of the Pullover elevates it above the norm, while the subtle logo gives it immense versatility in the wardrobe.  The white PXG logo on the front of the Classic Golfer Pants’ upper leg gives a stylized pop, but makes the pants golf course only in my book.

In a similar fashion, the red logos on the Plaid Block Sleeves Polo really pop – especially with the coordinating red piping.  The trio of plaid touches (shoulders, collar and placket) gives the polo upscale appeal.

The Handkerchief Paneled long sleeved polo from The Edit tips the fashion scale to a level I’m not familiar with in the golf space.  The shirt has an attention grabbing runway look that may be excellent for high fashion advertising, but for me seems a bit much for even the most fashion conscience golfer.

Fit

The Plaid Block Sleeve polo I tested was in the PXG comfort fit, described as a slightly relaxed version of the athletic fit.  Relaxed was the perfect descriptor.  There was room through the shoulders and chest, but the look was still neat.  Sleeves draped from my upper arms down to my elbows.

Form fitting, the Paneled ¼ zip had the perfect cut for golf.  No excess material on the body or sleeves to interfere with the golf swing.  Not tight, it can be worn easily as an outer or middle layer.  And I really liked the standup collar height.  Tall enough to protect the neck without feeling cumbersome.

The Classic Golfer pants were interesting in the fit department.  They come in even sizes and a fixed, undisclosed, inseam (I measured it at 31 ½”).  I’m typically a 33” waist and went up to 34”.  The fit was great, plus there’s plenty of elastic in the waist for give and take.  There are also snaps for going down in size.  With no taper to the legs, they were a bit voluminous.

Performance

All the pieces I tested from the A/W 22 collection had marvelous stretch.  PXG refers to it as four-way, I just call it super flexible in every direction.  For the tops, the fabric is a primarily nylon blend.  The fabric weight is a bit heavier than the mostly polyester fabrics found in many golf shirts – perfectly appropriate for the fall/winter season.

The pants are 100% polyester, with more of a year round weight.  Based on the fit and stretch, the pants would be perfect for wearing over a pair of thermals.  I’m a fan of the deep front pockets and the closure free rear pockets – very golf-centric.

Conclusion

The Fall/Winter 2022 collection is quintessential PXG – stylish and functional.  Their attention to detail, from fabric choices to the logo snaps, gives the brand distinction.  And although I only covered the men’s apparel, it’s worth noting that the women’s versions look spectacular too.

  1. I’m sorry, but $125 for a polo or $225 for a quarter-zip fleece is a HARD pass.
