moisture wicking golf shirts

Even though my last post is on a very similar subject, I feel compelled to write about it again.

Yesterday I ran 5 miles in heavy humidity, and was rained on several times. I was wearing a hanes cotton t-shirt and moisture wicking running shorts. Needless to say, when I was done, the t-shirt was pretty wet, but the shorts were not. What’s the relationship with golf shirts?

I’m petite and in pretty good shape so I don’t sweat much when golfing, but many of our golf store shoppers do. I’m often asked which is the best shirt?

The fabric from brand to brand may list the same composition, yet they react very differently to wear and tear and the environment. Here’s my picks for those who sweat a lot:
1. Bugatchi performance golf shirts. The best in class for moisture wicking, the shirts provide UV protection and breathability. The unique fabric is like no other moisture wicking shirt we’ve tested, and in fact the material is made exclusively for Bugatchi.

2. Bugatchi modal rayon shirt. These can be found by entering “1643” in the search bar in our online store. The shirts breathe and the fabric dries quickly. Technically they are not moisture wicking, but this shirt is exceptional for the golf course and under a sportcoat.

3. The Bugatchi Egyptian cotton golf shirt and any mercerized cotton shirts. Cotton is a natural fabric so it offers the most breathability. However, as my recent run proved, if you have excess moisture, the shirt will not dry out as quickly as others. This is a tournament favorite and is recommended for all golfers regardless of how much they sweat.

Bugatchi performance golf shirts

Are you looking for a golf shirt with UV protection? Available in styles for both men and women, I tested the Bugatchi shirt with UV 50+ protection on consecutive days vs a FAMOUS NAME BRAND.

You can read my Bugatchi Women performance wear shirt review here.

The Bugatchi shirt is by far the nicest feel, fit, and performance of any moisture wicking shirt I have ever worn. I combined the red shirt with the silver Bugatchi Women textured skort, flower pattern. The first person I saw that day said I looked stunning. Sun exposure to my skin was completely blocked. I do not care for most moisture wicking shirts because they tend to be hot. This one actually breathed and I could feel the light breeze through the fabric. I really like a soft fabric on my skin and this is definitely best in class.

The next brand I tried was just as I expected- another disappointment. I generally can tell by the fabric feel whether I am going to love it or not and this one failed right away on the ‘touch test’.

Day 3. Bugatchi vs Nike dri-fit? Ok this was a pretty good match. I liked the Nike dri-fit feel this season and paid full price to test a complete outfit. Everything fit nice and worked pretty well on the course. It’s not as soft, but it’s not as much money either. However, after one wash carefully following instructions, the Nike products (top & skort) look worn and required ironing. Even so, it will never look like it did on the rack again. And this is another reason why the Bugatchi brand is far superior to others, not just in my opinion, but also that of our customers.

Long lasting, color fast, nice feel. They’re made that way, and they stay that way.

Bugatchi sells Bugatchi shirts via it’s online store to CEO’s throughout North America. Additionally, we sell to corporations, most of which put their logo on the shirts.

Bugatchi shirts are rarely found at a discount, unless a brick and mortar retailer is closing out limited availability seasonal stock. Bugatchi shirts are not available everywhere. Resellers are carefully selected so as to control the branding and pricing. So how come if you search the internet, there are tons of listings that if you click on them, the site does not even sell any Bugatchi products? Unfortunately there are people out there trying to capitalize on the brand, lure them in, and then try to convince the customer to buy a different brand. Or sometimes it is shopping comparison sites. They all list the same store and they collect a fee, so these shopping portals spend a lot of money promoting the product.

At this time, does not pay to list all the Bugatchi products in the online shopping portals. We promote our own online store and that’s it. Hopefully, we’ll gain back our number one google position and knock out all those companies that don’t really sell the product. Until then, we’re going to try a few other things and see if we can’t boost our rankings.
