    Hi everyone!  

    Has anyone had the opportunity to peruse the new collection yet?  

    My local Golf Towns have limited supply...a few items only in the Marco and the Charleston collection only.  

    I'm planning on picking up one or two shirts soon and am wondering what other's thoughts were.  

    I'm thinking of some of the tops from the Marco collection ...I like the classic style that I think will be more "timeless".  

    I also like some from the other collections and am looking forward to checking them out and picking some up!

    I just picked up a FJ wind/rain repellent jacket and after using it for two rounds in cool, misty weather I am totally impressed with it. I was warm enough that I didn't have to wear anything bulky under it and as a result I was able to swing freely....and had a great game both times. Normally in off weather we need to bundle up and all the excess clothing results in a short, tight swing. I'll be adding more FJ clothing to my golf wardrobe soon!

    Sounds great Wendy!  I have been thinking that I should pick up an FJ rain/wind shirt.  Specifically for the days that you have referred to...a little bit of "nip" or chill in in the air, but not wanting to wear too much "bulk" that can impede the swing.  

    Another option for me has been the FJ Mid Layer ...the long sleeve, half zips that come in brushed jersey, etc. I find they have nice warmth and with a shirt on underneath, it is still trim and easy to swing a club.  

    Also, I had a good look at some more of the FJ collection at one of our Local Golf Towns and the Northview Pro Shop C...I think I'll pick up an item or two in the next few weeks!

    We were at a golf course yesterday that had a lot of FJ clothing for men but next to nothing for women. (read 1 windbreaker style jacket) I really need to find somewhere that has a full line of FJ women's clothing. Next time I am in Golf Town I will be asking if they will be stocking anything for gals.....maybe they do but so far I haven't seen it.

    I play in a couple of different foursomes with a regular group of women.  They are all relatively new to golf (less than 4 years) and they are all shocked at the lack of FJ product in many of the Pro Shops/Golf Town... at least compared to other labels.  

    They like the quality of the FJ rain gear and the ladies collection (polo shirts, wind shirts, etc.) but find the quantities limited in the stores.  I guess the retailers are uncertain as to how much inventory to carry for the ladies.

    I hope you can find some FJ items at Golf Town when you are in next.

    Hey, guys same story here in the US.  Honestly think it has to do with demand of brands.  Are some good displays but not heavy in FJ racks for men's apparel.   Might have to do with the account.  I get my FJs through my pro shop and mostly special order.

    The GolfTown that is nearest me took forever to bring in the 2015 line of FJ shirts and they only brought in one of the four collections.  When I went to the other GolfTown in my area, they has a different collection which I found interesting.  Could be a shelf space issue or if they bring in all four collections, it may inundate or be confusing to the customer to have such a choice.  I have been to several private courses where just one carried the 2015 FJ collections where they had a little bit of the four FJ 2015 collections along with the opportunity to special order from the manufacturer.  Tough to view the entire selection and to try on for fit, etc.
