Tzu Tzu Sporstwear Review
Fun, Fashion, Flair
By David Theoret
Anyone that knows Lisa Mandile knows that she loves clothes and the collections offered by Tzu Tzu reflect what she infuses in every piece of her sexy, fun and flirty golf apparel collection. Tzu Tzu is helping women everywhere hit the links in a wide range of colors and patterns-hot tangerine, pink ombré, royal blue, jungle, and bubbles, to name a few.
Lisa Mandile launched Tzu Tzu in 2011 and has gone full speed ahead ever since. In fact, the company recently won an award at the 2017 PGA Show in Orlando, FL for Best New Product. The Tzu Tzu name has become synonymous with well-crafted, high quality pieces, proudly made right here in the USA. The collections are made by a team of sewers in Minnesota in styles that spark conversations and admiration from fellow golfers on golf courses across the globe. Each piece is designed with details to make sure you're cool, comfortable and stylish, all at the same time.
Tzu Tzu currently produces 12 fun filled apparel collections. Each collection offers a variety of tops in long sleeve, short sleeve and sleeveless designs, skorts, skirts, pants and dresses. There are nine solid colors available in each collection along with a number of colorful and eye-catching designs. Sizes for both tops and bottoms range from XS-XXL. Here's a look at some of the pieces we we offered the opportunity to review.
The Allie Sleeveless Polo has a fitted bodice, a spread self-collar and a modified racerback that gives a little added coverage. The Annie Sleeveless Polo is a very similar style with a thinner, more athletic cut racerback design, making it perfect for hot summer days on the golf course. Both polos retail for $79.
The Lucy Polo is a short-sleeved top with a fitted bodice, stand-up collar and zippered placket giving it a little extra sex appeal. The raglan cap sleeves also add a dash of sportiness to this ladies' golf shirt. Retail price is $89.
The Charlotte Skort features a pull-on design with a non-roll elastic waistband and straight hem. The asymmetric handkerchief front detail adds a little pizzazz and a lot of character to this skort. The back pocket is discreetly hidden in the waistband seam, although it sits up high enough that your tees won't be poking you when you sit in the golf cart. All Tzu Tzu skorts come with built in shorties to help keep you covered and comfortable. Retail price is $130.
The Kenley Skort is also a pull-on design, and features a non-roll elastic waistband and a knife pleated ruffle around ¾ of the hem. The two front pockets are neatly sewn to avoid gaping and "dog ears" and the back pocket is also hidden in the waistband seam. Retail price is $135.
Another pull-on skort design is the Samba Skort, which also features a non-roll elastic waistband and box pleat ruffle at the hem. It too features a back pocket hidden in the waistband seam. Retail price is $130.
One area Tzu Tzu shines in (almost literally) is their golf dress designs. The Shiloh Dress features a stand-up collar and quarter zip along with a fitted bodice with princess seams that flatter all body types. The modified racerback keeps you covered while the knife pleat at the bottom keeps you feeling fun and flirty. All dresses come with a pair of shorties and a matching pouch. Retail price is $196.
With so many colors and designs, the pairing combinations are endless, or at least end in a very high number. Good thing the Tzu Tzu website (www.tzutzusport.com) does a great job of letting you know which top goes best with what bottom. Pay it a visit and I'm sure you'll find something that suits your game and your style.

David Theoret has been in the golf and golf travel industry for over 10 years, primarily selling online advertising. For the past seven years, he has also been a golf writer, reviewing golf courses, resorts, destinations, equipment, golf apparel, and training aids - the latter of which never seems to help. David's articles and reviews have been posted on many golf travel and equipment websites.
Growing up in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, it was naturally assumed he would play hockey. Beginning at the age of 3 and continuing into his late 30's, he did just that. However, after one too many pucks to the head, he realized that golf was a lot easier on the body (whoever said hockey players were slow) and took the game up.
After moving to Florida and accepting a position with TravelGolf Media (now part of GolfNow) his love for the game grew exponentially. Most Saturdays you will find him on a course somewhere in Florida or on the practice range reinforcing his bad habits. David plays to a 10 handicap - unless there is money involved in which case it goes considerably higher. He currently resides in Lakeland, FL with his wife Belinda and their two "kids", Madyson and Molly.
