A New Month, A New Collection
By David Theoret
Tail Activewear has a unique approach to women's golf apparel. Instead of doing what just about every other apparel company in the golf industry does - release their Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter apparel lines at the two PGA Shows in January and August - they release a new collection every month. And with each release being very different from the previous one, this keeps Tail apparel devotees always on the lookout for what's new. Or, you could just pick up one of their catalogs at the Show like we did!
The Botanica Collection was introduced in June 17 and features fresh, floral prints in Rosette and Night shades, perfect for the summer heat. The CiCi Top is sewn from Tail's Performance Jersey material and the 12% Spandex in the fabric gives it all the stretch you'll need to power through your golf swing. This sleeveless garment has a convertible collar and 5 snap placket. It's semi-fitted to show off your figure and the UPF 50 sun protection keeps harmful rays at bay. It comes in Tail's Lace patter which is sure to turn a few heads and is available in sizes XS-XL. Retail price is $83. The CiCi Top pairs well with their Riva Shorts.
The Riva Shorts feature a modern pull-on fit and are sewn from Tail's Bi-Stretch woven material. Mesh inserts on the side provide extra cooling on hot summer days and the zippered pockets keep valuables safe and secure. The 21" outseam provides great coverage and UPF 50 sun protection keeps those harmful rays away. Silver Rivets on the legs and some sparkle to these shorts. The Riva Shorts are available in white only and in size 2-18. Retail price is $89.
The Ilse Skort exemplifies Tail's commitment to floral prints in t is collection. It's sewn from Tail's Performance Jersey material that provides has enough stretch for full range of motion. The straight pull-on design has built in shorties, 2 front pockets and 1 back pocket, big enough to handle just about any scorecard. The 18" outseam provides a modest length and with UPF 50, you'll have ample protection from the sun. The Ilse Skort is available in a Floret print and in sizes XS-XL. Retail price is $89.
For those seeking a little more protection from the sun, Tail offers the Trent Top. It's sewn from their Performance Jersey fabric with UPF 50 sun protection and features full-length sleeves with mesh under sleeve inserts. The zippered placket lets you decide how much sun gets in. The Trent Top is available in White, trimmed with Rosette and Night and comes in sizes XS-XXL. Retail price is $85.
Two other Tail pieces that go well together are Neve Top and Analiza Skort. The Neve Top is sewn from their Performance Jersey material and features a mock neck, zippered placket, 6.5" sleeves and UPF 50 sun protection. What sets this top apart is the Entity design with Rosette inserts on the sides. The Analiza Skort has a straight pull-on design and the Luxe Jersey fabric provides plenty of stretch. Analiza features ruched trim, shorties and hidden pockets as well as UPF 50 sun protection. The Neve Top is available in sizes XS-XXL and retails for $83. The Analiza Skort comes in sizes XS-XL in Rosette and retails for $89. Put these two pieces together and watch the heads turn!
Tail continues their push to make the golf dress part of a gal's everyday golf wardrobe and the Maceo Dress should be in every ladies' collection. It's sewn from a refined pique fabric and features a mock neck with zippered placket and shorties. The two pockets provide all the storage room you'll need and the UPF 50 keeps the sun out. Even if you miss a few shots you'll still look the part. The Maceo Golf Dress is available in a Sabal Palm print and in sizes XS-XL. Retail price is $99.
Tail's "Collection of the Month" for July 2017 is called On the Dot and shows the fun a company can have with circles when they put their minds to it. Lavender and Chartreuse colors are prominent in this collection and seem to accentuate a women's figure.
The Mulligan Shorts feature a modern pull-on fit; no snaps or buttons to worry about. The Bi-Woven stretch material (89% polyester/11% Spandex) material has all the stretch you will ever need and the 21" outseam and slim leg fit really flatter the figure. Diagonally cut pockets are easy to get in and out of and UPF 50 sun protection is all you need to keep those harmful rays at bay. The Mulligan Shorts are available in their Merge design and in sizes 2-18. Retail price is $89.
The Fannie Top is sewn from Tail's Performance Jersey material and features a mock neck with zippered placket. The sleeveless design features grommets on the shoulder that accentuate the zippered placket and add a little shimmer to the shape. The Fannie Top is available in the Speckled Placed print and incorporates Lavender, Black and Chartreuse into the color scheme, creating a very dramatic look. It's available in sizes XS-XXL. Retail price is $83.
The Fannie Top pairs perfectly with the Naya Skort; in fact, they are almost made to go together. They are made from the same material and their designs complement each other rather well. A couple of other pieces from this collection that are worth mentioning are the Frances Skort and Colette Top.
The Frances Skort might just become a gal's favorite. The straight pull-on design is sewn from Tail's Performance Jersey material and features pleats on both the front and back. There's three pockets; two in front and one in back, that are easy to get in and out of. There's a Tail badge on the back pocket to identify the brand.
The Colette Top is a fashion forward garment that embodies everything Tail is about: fit, form and fashion. This semi-fitted sleeveless design is sewn from their Performance Jersey fabric and features a mock neck with zippered placket and UPF 50 sun protection. The sides are colorblocked in black and the swerve design sets this top apart. The Colette Top is available in sizes XS-XXL and retails for $83.
Finally, Tail's Rosaline Dress adds a new wrinkle to golf dresses. The Performance Jersey material provides all the stretch you will need for your swing and the sleeveless design makes for a cool round of golf. The Rosaline Dress features a mini self-collar and snapped placket as well as UPF 50 sun protection. The silver zippered pockets on either side add a unique look but what sets this dress apart is the empire waist that slims the body and elongates a gal's figure. The Rosaline Dress is available in a stunning Jolt Print (Black with Lavender, Chartreuse & White) and in sizes XS-XL. Retail price is $99.

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.
