This season women golfers can obtain sportswear designed for cool weather

Women golfers, who have long had to make do with improvised outfits in the fall and winter, can now stroll the fairways in clothes especially designed for cool weather wear. The new sportswear, made by Loomtogs, is approved by Arnold Palmer and labeled with his name. The V-neck golf cardigan, shown below, is modeled on Palmer's own sweater, and it has his open-umbrella emblem embroidered on it. Made of Orlon, it is available in gray, camel, brown, olive and cranberry and costs $15. The tab-front, Arnel-jersey polo shirt ($7) underneath the sweater has short sleeves with action gussets and comes in a variety of colors. Completing the outfit is a pleated Glen plaid wool skirt ($18) that has tee holders on the waistband. For those who like to wear a hat while golfing, there is a Glen plaid or a district check wool fedora for $8.

Loomtogs also makes gray flannel or camel-colored wool slacks ($18). They are tailored with a fly front, have tee holders on the waistband, reinforced seams and back pockets that are copied from those on men's golf slacks. For rainy days there is a water-repellent, action-back golf jacket that has a storm collar, zipper front and adjustable waistband. It comes in green, brown and cranberry and costs $15.

The Arnold Palmer Sports Editions golf clothes are available throughout the country in some 700 department stores.
