As the crusaders of modern golf apparel, Johan Lindeberg and the boys have always tried to stay one step ahead of the rest. When they did the color thing back in 2003-2006, companies trying to get a piece of the market flooded it with neons and they've since retreated to more subdued designs. I do miss seeing Jesper and Camilo (and in those days Badds and Chucky Howell) wear the turquoises and electric blues before we started seeing them everywhere. The Lachlan polo Camilo wears above is one of my favorite JL shirts of all time. Going back to the last post with Luke, when you pair a bold color with black it jumps and it creates this fantastic effect. For an off-the-course example, notice the way Kanye West will pair a black outfit or black trousers with a brightly colored Paul Smith belt. Same effect. It's something I've never tried, but have always wanted to. Guess it's kind of too late. But hey, when everyone starts making boring sh*t to stay current, I can count on JL to whip something up that'll get my blood-boiling again. Viva la golf style.
