BIRDS OF CONDOR

This cheeky Australian brand was named for the mythical condor — a hole-in-one on a par five, also known as a triple eagle — and was inspired by the camaraderie cultivated by the pursuit of golf’s best moments.

Brothers Robert and Will Brunner created Devereux as a tribute of sorts to their grandmother, Devereux, “who taught them that dressing well is the highest form of good manners.” The fabrics are soft, and the prints are both whimsical and yet somehow understated, suitable for both the young and young at heart. dvrxthreads.com

This Vancouver, Canada-based brand has been around for a while, but I find myself telling other female golfers about Lija often enough that I think it’s still worth designating as under-the-radar.
