Reviewing the new Apparel line

  •

    So I'm quite surprised that the new apparel is not on the website like the other gear.  There is no way to write a product review on these pieces.  I know there is lots of hype and reviews from the publishers but consumers today are more and more wanting to here from their peers.

    Devin and Chris, please bring it up to the Apparel folks.  It could only help sales I would think.  Competitors already know FJ is a force to be reckoned with due to the PGA show releases.

    It is a tremendous value to have the consumer provide personal reviews of products and many of us purcahse alot of FJ product for its quality, function and fit.  More FJ endorsement...(talking to the choir)-HAHA

    i agree.  reviews play a big role in my buying habits.  if something has great reviews i'm more likely to give it a shot.  and if something has bad reviews, i'm more likely to skip it.  i think it's much better than 'flying blind' when buying products.

    Justin, not sure you're original question was answered, so let me jump in here. We are hoping to add all of the color story items to the site at some point. Probably not in the FootJoy.com catalog pages, but certainly on our new landing page (footjoy.com/apparel).

    The challenge is inventory. You could add a shirt to the site this morning and learn it's already sold out this afternoon when reports are generated. It's just a lot of manual labor to maintain the inventory on the site so consumers like yourself don't see something and go to order it only to find out it's sold out. Our first experience with this was the argyle performance sweaters. The actual inventory was sold out (ie, "spoken for") before we even officially launched it online! Great problem to have but presents some challenges for the marketers. Devin and I would both like to see all of the pieces, or at least swatches of all the pieces, on the apparel site at some point. We just need to work through some logistics internally.

    I hope this helps.

    Chris,

    Thanks for the reply.  Love the new avatar by the way!! (Napa is my fav and I was lucky enough to get my hands on a sweater too!).

    Totally understand and after talking to the pro who talked to the FJ rep it makes sense.  So much of the new collection is selling fast so what is the customer experience if you put product online that we cannot order.  I agree with FJ on this. 

    Great problem to have but hopefully quantities are bumped up moving forward so we can all enough the new apparel.  :-)  

    I'd love to be the product person who put the conservative forecast out there only to blow it out of the water... Those are fun projects to have your name attached to!

    I really like the blue vest, and the light colored shorts. The waist band "needs" to be expandable especially for us full bodied golfers. The striped shirts are a big no from us larger guys.. we don't need anything that adds to our size.. you smaller guys would not have a problem.

    Logos on the sleeves. Matched with colors of the shirt would be nice.
