United Arrows, a Japanese clothing brand known for its urban utilitarian style collaborations with brands like New Balance, The North Face and more, has recently revealed its third collaborative effort with golf brand TaylorMade.
The collection touches on themes of street, urban and outdoor wear, featuring an almost military-like uniformity equipped with versatile utility. Colors found in the collection are primarily made up of various shades of khaki and black, with a few white and high visibility items in the mix as well.
United Arrows’ approach to the collection was guided by pro-Japanese golfer, Yosuke Sasakawa, who shared that “Instead of the ‘golf clothes that can be worn on the street’ that we often see in recent years, we created ‘clothing that people want to wear on the street’ with an awareness of the city and the street in the first place,” he added that “Details such as a reflector print that blends in with the street and detachable pockets give it a more urban image. This is the reason why young people who like fashion are interested in golf even a little.”
Notable items include weather-treated jackets and a vest, pullover hoodies, quilted shorts and pants, a packable tailored jacket, putter and driver covers and a golf bag in the collection’s signature khaki color. Most of the items in the collection feature utility-driven storage solutions and durable materials specifically chosen for long-lasting use.
Prices for items in the upcoming United Arrows and Taylor Made collection range from under ¥5,000 JPY ($34 USD) to ¥63,800 JPY ($433 USD). The regional collection is set to release on September 15 at select TaylorMade stores and on the retailer’s official site.
