Embrace your opposite, and wonderful things can happen -- memories of Herschel Walker's ballet performances still bring tears to men's eyes, and when Kim Jong-il listens to tender Elvis ballads, North Koreans are so overwhelmed with emotion they can't even eat. Now embracing the links, Amongst Friends.
A NY-based streetwear line whose past collections have claimed influences ranging from gambling to "non-nicotine" smoke, Amongst Friends is now rolling out spring gear honoring the antithesis of street, golf. Tees include the winged golfball-logo'd "We Fly High" (in white or powder blue) and the mustard, red-sealed "Brooklyn Par & True", which shouts out the inaugural 1934 Masters despite Brooklyn not even having quality mini-golf; meanwhile, ballsy polos are crested with a monkey rocking Payne Stewart attire -- which could cause some stares on the course, but not as many as Payne Stewart. Also on tap: khaki or blue windbreakers with plaid interiors, rugbys, shorts, embroidered chinos, and black and red zip hoodies with eagle-bedecked seals reading "In Golf We Trust" (sacrilegious, but what has God done for the dollar lately?).
AF also offers accessories, including matching belts & fitted hats like "Classic Dot" (black dots on white) and the light-blue "Semaphoric", featuring a referee signaling various penalties with a pair of flags -- a baneful sight for any man whose opposite is not-cheating.
