TravisMathew Meets You at Every Moment – GolfThreads


Like any good gentleman caller, my thoughts went immediately to my lady-friend when I was presented with this review opportunity. You see, a few weeks before Valentine’s Day, the gang at TravisMathew inquired if I would be interested in some his-and-her samples from their ‘Made to Meet the Moment’ collection. Why, yes. Yes, indeed!


Made to Meet the Moment Collection

Made to Meet the Moment is not chasing fashion trends. TravisMathew put together a timeless collection of essential items that can get you from good morning to good night. Each piece is designed to maximize comfort without sacrificing style, and in turn, inspires confidence! The minimal branding and classic colorways allow you to easily mix and match.

Think elevated athleisure; Made to Meet the Moment has all the performance qualities you need for the course or the gym. Comfort and style for errands or lounging. And by adding a few select pieces, you can easily dress this up for date night.


For the Gentleman Caller

Pants

I have said it before and I will say it again, TravisMathew dungarees are the bee’s knees. The Legacy Featherweight Pant is lightweight stretch denim that looks every bit as good with a t-shirt or a button-up. Dress them up or dress them down. Straight leg, with a modern tailored fit, they will keep you looking proper, regardless of how you choose to wear them. I found the waist to be true to size, and if anything, I might’ve been able to go down a size, given the 1″-2″ of give in the waistband. Heads up to my long-legged friends, the inseam only comes in 32″.

Hence the name, the Open to Close Pants are designed to be worn from, well…..open to close. They blur the line between dress slacks and golf trousers. Soft, comfortable, and stretchy they feel like you are wearing nothing at all. The best part is these pants DO NOT wrinkle. I found the lightweight material to be more appropriate for mild temperatures and not the cold winters of New England. Otherwise, the fit was true-to-size, if not a slightly generous classic cut.

Tops

The standout tops in the Made to Meet the Moment are from the TM Cloud Collection. Substantial, soft, warm, and cozy. They will be your go-to when it’s chilly or you just want to chill. The Cloud Quarter Zip 2.0 is my favorite (especially in Portabella and Heather Dark Red) for its versatility. So far, I have worn it to work, the hockey rink, and into the city for dinner and drinks. This pullover has logged some serious mileage. For the record, I am typically a Large in TM polo shirts. However, I sized up in this Q-Zip for layering purposes (I tend to do that with pullovers), and it wasn’t necessary, but I am glad I did (it was a bit roomier and more forgiving).

The description of the Cloud Hoodie is, “couch-worthy comfort, street-worthy style.” And I would say that about sums it up. Cloud Fleece fabrication combined with elevated details like the ribbed hems and cuffs, natural shoelace drawcords, and an exterior kangaroo pocket makes it look as good as it feels. (Sized up here too).


For the Lady-Friend

If your gal-pal is always stealing your TravisMathew gear, it is time to get her some of her own. Luckily for you, my lady-friend, Carolyn, was able to recommend a few items to make your life easier. Starting with the above Cloud Fleece Shacket. First off, who doesn’t love a shacket? They are all the rage due to their all-around function. You’ve heard me ramble on about TM’s Cloud Fleece, so I will spare you the excessive praise. Here is what she had to say, “…. beautiful color and comfortable! It can easily be layered because of its lightweight material. I’ve worn it with neutrals and jazzed it up by wearing it over colors and coordinating it with accessories. It’ll be a three-season staple, for sure!”

The item that Carolyn thought she would get the most use out of, and sheepishly admitted to wanting in every color, is the Cloud Fleece Jogger. “These are the pants you want to put on straight out of bed and then keep them on all day long. And they aren’t just ‘wear around the house joggers,’ I want to be seen in them. They are cozy and warm with the fleece-lined interior. I am 5’7” and the length is perfect (although I will probably hang dry them). The delicate embroidered ‘tm’ branding gave them a feminine feel, which I thought was a nice touch.

A henley is a staple item in my closet and the Cloud Jersey Henley is beautiful and flattering. The lightweight fabric feels like I am wearing nothing at all (quiet, Mike). I’ve worn it with my joggers and a pair of jeans, and it doesn’t discriminate. I went with a Small and accidentally left it in the dryer, so either size up or remember to hang dry.
