Q.E.D. polo shirts are some of the most stylish golf shirts I have seen in a long time. Not only are they super stylish but they are also surprisingly affordable.
I was recently sent a sample shirt from a company I have never heard before called Q.E.D. Style. It’s a golf apparel company founded in 2011 and they’re out of Salt Lake City, Utah.
As to where the Q.E.D. names comes from:
The Q.E.D. name comes from the Latin phrase “Quod Erat Demonstrandum”, or “what was to have been demonstrated”. The phrase has been known to be used at the end of math proofs as a sign of closure. The best english translation may be “that what was required to prove”. The use of Q.E.D. dates back to early mathematicians such as Archimedes and Euclid. A black square is commonly used as a symbolic alternative to Q.E.D., and it serves as the foundation of our logo.
In their “About Us” on QEDStyle.com they mention:
“Q.E.D. golf apparel was designed with three things in mind: Comfort, Quality, and Price.” I can add one more thing and that’s style. They truly are very stylish. When I first wore them on the course I got a number of comments from, “That’s a cool shirt,” to “Where’d you get that?” to “Did you get that in Europe?”
Just to let you know: this isn’t your typically baggy, flowing, Tiger-like Nike-wear. It’s much more in line with a designer-wear apparel – like J. Lindeberg or a high quality Penguin shirt. They are very fitted. Which I personally like. The shirt has a nice, luxurious feel to it – almost silky-like – and feels real good against your skin (especially on hot days!) The ones I have are 100% polyester but the others have a blend of fabric: 95% Combed Cotton, 5% Spandex.
As for the styling, it’s very hip, you might even say “edgy”. They work stitching into the design (see pic below), most have 2 upper pockets and instead of run-of-the-mill buttons they have snap buttons which didn’t feel like a big deal to me initially but as time went on it really is a very neat, nice detail built into these quality shirts.
And these shirts are not just for golf. They look great if your heading out to a friendly get together or even a trendy bar. They work as well with jeans as they do with shorts – either tucked in our out – doesn’t matter.
One of the best things about Q.E.D. is the prices. I could easily see these shirts going for a minimum of $75 (and up) each and honestly I would still probably buy them. I think the quality, styling and fit and comfort are really what sets these polos apart. But you’ll be surprised (probably amazed) that these shirts sell for $50! (and some even for $40) It’s really an amazing price for the quality your receive! I would start ordering now before this company explodes and the inevitable prices increases that’ll follow.
Everything about Q.E.D. has impressed me so far. From the packaging, to the cool chain-attached tag, to their branding catalog, to the contrast stitching to the cool logo on the sleeve. Every detail is highly considered and thought out. It’s quite impressive for such a young company.
They will will be introducing trousers, shorts, sweaters, woven button downs and more polos this fall! I can’t wait to check out the new apparel. I’m very excited about this company and a lot of others are too (They already have 20 pros wearing their line!) I mean, if they offered stock, I would definitely invest. That’s about as good a compliment I can give for this soon-to-be famous apparel company.
