Bert LaMar Interview - On His NEW Goldust Tartan Collection

What is the Goldust Tartan Collection?

Bert: Goldust is my new summer 2016 collection which I have been working on since winter of 2014.

Inspired by a month long break I took to Italy to clear my mind and study design, art, culture and technical design history.

 

What is different about this collection?

Bert: After years of pushing the fabric mills I was able to finally incorporate SUBLIMATION into my fabric. I was the main pioneer of Sublimation in the snowboard industry and I knew it would have huge benefits for the tour level golfer.

What does Sublimation do? Why is it better?

Bert: Sublimation is the process of converting ink, or in my case art&design which I created in Italy, from a SOLID INTO A GASEOUS STATE.  This means that the design or art if you will is transferred at temperatures over 290 degrees from the outside of the material fibers. It penetrates 98% from the outside locking in the most durable crystal clear print while LEAVING THE ATHLETE'S SKIN TO SIT AGAINST PURE PERFORMANCE FIBERS. There is nothing like this in golf or really any performance sport. I am the first to develop it for athletes. My Tour Players LOVE IT! They probably don't even know why:) Nor should they:)

What is the Venice Belt all about?

Bert: I wanted a belt that looked like a million bucks, but was designed to perform like a piece of equipment on the tour for 3,4,5, even 8 week stretches on tour which can be extremely demanding. The last thing a tour player needs is a belt that can't handle the heat! I wanted the beauty of Imported Italian Croc Embossed Leather and Italian sports performance infused lining. In Italy I was able to create just that!  Everything about her is crafted to perform.  The buckle mount is my own design sports radial zinc alloy, brushed silver buckle.

How is your game?

Bert: I am fortunate enough to be around the best players and support teams in the game of golf. I am always learning what it takes to get better. For me now I have a major hurdle to try and clear, my ball striking. I am working closely with Dr. Mo Pickens, Janet Alexander, Dr. Shepard and now Dana Dahlquist. It's a work in progress and I love the process and the people.

What do you do to clear your head from your work/design/iliac?

Bert: I love to chill with my wife, kids and dogs:) I am blessed:)
