‘Best Of’ Review: My husband loves this comfy crossover Linksoul polo
Welcome to GOLF.com’s “Best Of” review series, where one of GOLF’s editors reviews new, interesting and helpful products from around the golf world. This week: The Linksoul Coast Highway Classic polo.
Linksoul is a lifestyle golf brand co-founded John Ashworth. Golf and surfing are a shared passion for Ashworth and his design team, and the brand’s products on offer are a reflection of that commitment: from board shorts that double as on-course apparel to casual short-sleeve button-ups that look just as suited to the first tee as the 19th hole. Linksoul is also a proponent of community investment. Linksoul Lab, the brand’s Oceanside, Calif. headquarters, is a merchandise hub but also incorporated a community event space where they host art shows, concerts, benefits, teach workshops and screen local documentaries. Perhaps the website says it best: “We [at Linksoul] believe in creating products we value, with the people we love, for the good of our families and our community.”
Linksoul’s Coast Highway Classic polo is a great reflection of the brand’s values outlined above, and is a longtime signature item. It has a look that is both modern yet retro, with the button-down flap pocket on the chest, and is a comfortable lifestyle staple in addition to being perfectly appropriate golfwear. The ultra-soft Supima cotton has a luxurious hand-feel, as well as the perfect amount of stretch to be make it a comfortable wear in just about every temperature.
Does it live up to the hype?
My husband is generally a performance-fabric polo guy, but he has owned this shirt in two different colors and loved them both. As his wife and frequent style consultant, I’m a fan of the versatility: The shirt looks just as great untucked with a pair of jeans for a casual night out as it does for a round of golf. For that reason alone, I’m sold.
Best Golf Polo for Throwback Cool
Linksoul Coast Highway Classic
This soft, highly-rated and universally flattering 100 percent Supima cotton polo’s inclusion of a front button-flap and three-button placket perfectly toes the line between retro-chic and just plain cool. Available in nine colors.
