In 2004 a plane took off for the USA – and with it the success story of Alberto’s golf collection. On board: the two managing directors Georg Walendy and Marco Lanowy. In their luggage: lots of creative ideas for a modern, functional golf collection. In the States, Walendy and Lanowy were expected by golf pro Alex Cejka, who attracted attention at the time by wearing Alberto pants on the green instead of golf pants.
So enthusiastic about the models from the men’s collection, a promising cooperation with the men’s fashion label was established and Alberto took up the challenge to revive the sportswear market. Not only through many years of fashion expertise, but above all through the development and use of innovative materials, a very special golfwear was created, which convinced with unusual designs, perfect cuts and completely new functions. Since then the label has established itself very well – golfers are familiar with the functional and expressively fashionable golf pants and shirts from Mönchengladbach.
Alberto Golffashion: 10 functions for golfers
In addition to Alberto Golf energear and ALBERTO Golf coldblack, eight other functions ensure that golfers feel completely at ease. As with all outdoor sports, it is also important for golfers that their outfit offers protection from external influences such as rain, wind or sun. That is why selected golf pants from the collections are equipped with multi-protect functions. The fabrics are thus breathable, wind-resistant, crease-resistant as well as tear and abrasion-proof. Dirt and moisture roll off the fibre, so that the pants stay pleasantly dry even when you are roaming through wet grass. Fabrics with a nano finish are particularly dirt- and water-repellent. This means that the surfaces are sealed and thus resistant to dirt and water even after repeated washing.
Golf is movement: running, kneeling, swinging, putting. The body is constantly in action. And a pair of trousers must not be constricting. If they also keep their shape, T400 is certainly involved. Because T400 combines perfect fit and unlimited freedom of movement thanks to permanent stretch.
The original Ceramica is also characterised by optimum wearing comfort. But not only that: it is also anti-allergic, temperature-balancing and UV-resistant. Temperature changes, as they are normal on the golf course on a day, are compensated for by the pants with incorporated clay minerals, thus balancing 5 degrees in both directions.
Besides the comfortable fit of the outfits, the material composition is especially important for the golfer’s well-being. The sportswear label relies on the use of the high-tech material Coolmax. The fibre transports the moisture away from the body to the surface of the fabric, where the moisture evaporates. This is especially important to prevent colds or muscle aches, which often occur when the body cools down due to damp clothing. The quick drying of the Coolmax material ensures a balanced microclimate of the skin. Tests confirm that clothing made of Coolmax – unlike cotton, for example – dries almost completely in just half an hour. But not only does the balanced microclimate increase the player’s well-being, performance is also enhanced. Since the energy does not have to be used to cool the body, it can be used to increase endurance.
An insulating layer of air is the secret of the cooling trousers 3XDRY Cooler by Alberto Golf: Textiles with the 3XDRY Cooler finish repel water and dirt from the outside and quickly transport moisture through the hollow fibre from the inside to the outside where it evaporates. This prevents heat accumulation on the skin and prevents shivering after active phases, because sweat cannot stick to the clothing. This supports natural body functions and increases physical well-being.
Especially during rainy days it is important to wear weatherproof clothing. Every golfer knows the unpleasant feeling when rain or moisture penetrates to the skin. Water Repellent offers a real solution with a reliably water-repellent Oberﬂäche. The water drops roll off the Oberﬂäche and the body remains pleasantly dry and warm.
With the Inzectic insect protection trousers, Alberto Golf tackles an annoying problem that unfortunately now affects almost all golfers: ticks and mosquitoes. The Inzectic™ offers effective protection against ticks and mosquitoes – directly on the garment.
