We first brought you the good news of someone finally looking out for the big and tall golfer earlier this year. Well we've had the chance to try out Aveo brand shorts and pants for ourselves and it wouldn't be a stretch to call them a huge success.
Obviously, the first thing that sticks out with any article of clothing is the look, and Aveo shorts are no different. The classic style rivals any big-name golf apparel manufacturer. They are available in blue, black or khaki and in pleated or flat front, so there's something to match any outfit.
Where Aveo shorts really shine is the performance and versatility. As soon as you put these on, you will notice how comfortable they are. They fit properly around the waist but leave plenty of room throughout the legs. And bonus: the waistband is elastic, providing an additional couple inches of stretch – so there's always a little more wiggle room. The polyester blend used throughout the shorts make them extremely multi-functional. For starters they are very lightweight, similar to a dri-fit material, and therefore don't weigh you down on the course. They don't accumulate water, either from rain or sweat, leaving you dry and focused on your game. And maybe most importantly, they don't shrink in the washing machine. Other great features that caught our eye were the double-rear belt loops that increase support and no rear pocket buttons, because the last thing anyone wants to be doing is fidgeting with a button every time they want to get into their pocket during a round.
What can you say about the pants other than that they are just a longer version of the super-comfy, stylish shorts described above. The pants come with the same variety of options – pleated or flat front in black, blue or khaki – and are great for the course, the 19th hole, the office or pretty much anywhere else you can think of.
Aveo's shorts and pants are available in sizes 38-44 and inseam 32 and 34. They retail for $84.99 and $89.99 respectively. While this may seem a bit pricey, as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. And I'm willing to bet there's plenty of big and tall golfers out there who have been trying to squeeze into uncomfortable pants for far too long. Aveo shorts and pants are available for purchase at Golfsmith. For more information, check out Aveo online or visit them on Facebook.
