GNN explains: What’s the G-Mac is wearing?

Graeme McDowell is considered one of the sharper-dressed men in the game, but not a whole lot of people are aware of the company that makes the Ulsterman's threads.

McDowell is wearing a line made by Irish clothier Kartel called "G-Mac by Kartel." The company announced the line in January, but the clothes are now available for purchase by the masses.

The line sports three styles of golf shirt.

  • The Portrush polo, which has a two-piece button down collar, has a four-button plackette with a breast pocket. It comes in seven colors and sells for $80.
  • The Malone is $90 and is the same as the Portrush but adds contrast colors underneath the collar and on the bottom of the sleeves. It comes in four colors.
  • The Ardglass is also $90, does not have a breast pocket, but as contrast color stitching on the collar, plackette and cuff.

The line boasts five sweaters, but are all out of stock on the Kartel website at the moment. They range in price from $100-135.

The star of the line, however, is the pants, which have a retro flare and aren't the slim-fit style that is the bane of a larger man's existence. There are two styles, the McSuper and McPlain, which have a V-cut hem and with half lining and inner binding. They cost $200 and $175, respectively.

While none of this stuff is in my closet, it could easily find a spot in the wardrobe.
