Upping Your Golf Game with American-Made Leather

  • Najib Benouar


With spring golf on the horizon, it’s about time to fish out the clubs and give them a good sprucing.

Your first step: some new head covers, like these handsome American-made leather ones from Stitch Golf—founded by a PGA pro and a former designer for Callaway.

The duo started off with some custom jobs for the likes of US presidents, and now they’re taking their North Carolina–based (and stitched) operation mainstream with two new designs based on 1950s race cars and the stripes of yacht sails. The supple leather and strategic padding work together to keep your clubs safe while being more lightweight in your bag—something you, or your caddie, will appreciate on the long par 5—and, more importantly, should help make your overall game a lot better-looking.

We can’t promise the same for your scorecard.

Cover Version


There are a lot of reasons to troll used-book stores, but whether you find the title you’re after or not, there’s always a few interesting covers.

This gallery of old Pelican covers should be a reminder: they don’t design them like they used to. (Although Chip Kidd might have something to say about that.) And judging a book by its cover isn’t as bad as it’s cracked up to be.

In the worst case, it sits prettily on your end table while you turn to more interesting pursuits. After all, it’s an object too.
