Bunker Mentality is a UK-based clothing company that is bringing some great new styles and apparel options for the new-school golfer. The brand is offering a much different take on golf clothing than the traditional styles that you see in your local clubhouse or golf shop. Bunker Mentality is serious about providing an alternative set of aesthetics for a new golf culture.
Bunker Mentality offers a huge variety of lines and types of apparel and accessories. A variety of jackets, knitwear, various types of polo shirts, t-shirts, pants, shorts, hats, and lots of accessories. The styles vary from progressive styles and colors to a modern take on some old classics.
We reviewed samples from a variety of different styles and lines. Specifically, we checked out the CMax Playa Shirt from the Technical Polos collection, the Playa Shirt, the Skitch Pant, the Skitch Short, and a variety of the t-shirts.
The CMax Playa Shirt is made of a nice material that breathes like a standard technical golf shirt and is made of 100% polyester. The fit of the shirt is similar to most US apparel manufacturers and the cut provides a nice fit that stays out of your way while playing. The material wicks well and does a great job of drying quickly.
The Playa Denim shirt is 100% cotton with nice clean lines that feels like a more formal golf shirt than the CMax. The shirt holds more moisture than the CMax, but is nice when you need a thicker shirt for cooler days. The arms are a bit shorter and the shirt makes for a more formal shirt that looks great with a modern fit.
I typically wear a Medium in most golf manufacturers (Nike, Under Armour, and Antigua) and I had to size up to a Large in the Bunker Mentality shirts. While the Medium still fits, the Large was more comfortable and comparable to the US Medium sizes. The lines in the shirts have a typical European feel and are made to fit well instead of hanging like most US manufacturers.
The Biscuit pant and shorts are the same cut and feel. The pants and shorts are made of a thin material that works great for warmer days and is thin enough to dry quickly when the rain rolls in. Both the pants and the shorts are cut smaller than what we’ve come to expect for golf clothing and that ends up being a great thing. The tighter fit gives a much cleaner appearance while still being fully functional on the course. The shorts are the perfect length hanging right at the bottom of the knee.
The t-shirts that Bunker Mentality has put out are great. It’s great to see these shirts available due to the lack of nice off-course golf gear available. The shirts will have you laughing out loud and they are great casual wear for hitting the bar after the round (and the clubs later that night). The shirts do tend to shrink a bit, so I would order a size over what you would expect.
If you’re looking for some clothing to show your unique style on the course then Bunker Mentality is a great place to find some golf gear. They have a great selection of gear for both men and women. It’s refreshing to see the new breed of golf apparel and we can only hope that companies like Bunker Mentality continue to bring in new gear and styles for the more progressive golfer.
