Dressing for Golf wasn't Fun
The seed for the idea of Renwick was planted in 2002, when Sarah and I would joke about how terrible we looked in our golf outfits. College-aged, we would travel to Manchester, Vermont to play at our parent’s club where we were required to wear knee-length skirts. We didn’t mind being conservative, but the options were terrible. Ill-fitting was an understatement. We’d cave and just wear long pants and avoid the awkward conversations with the Starter on skirt length altogether. Our joking aside, dressing for golf was a downer. It robbed the event of a certain amount of joy. In contrast, watching our father and brother wear golf clothes all Summer – because that’s how handsome and functional they were – struck us as so unfair. Why did we feel like an afterthought in the world of golf? Why did this exclusion, and lack of understanding of our needs, feel so fundamentally offensive? We discussed these things late into the night at family dinners and began to imagine how we could fix the issue. Here we are, 18 years later. Showing some love to women’s golf clothing, and creating pieces cool enough to exist outside the world of golf. Everyone deserves to look stylish and feel happy while doing things they love.
