As a bigger golfer, 6’1” tall and 260 lbs I found that finding the perfect fitting clothes for golfing can get difficult. Each brand has a different cut and no 2 brands ever fit the same. Aveo Golf’s sole focus is to help big and tall golfer’s look and feel confident. No other golf company exists that focuses on the big and tall golfer. Have no fear Aveo does! Aveo wants their golfers to feel 100% confident on what they are wearing on and off the course.
Aveo got started with Darius. This is his story on how Aveo got started.
"At 6’ 4” 300 lbs I struggled to look like a golfer. Nothing fit and most of my rounds were played in wind pants or cargo shorts. Instead of looking like a golfer I looked more like I was headed to the gym. Addressing this was tougher than I realized. Occasionally, I would find something “suitable” but I couldn't find a brand that I knew always had my needs in mind. After struggling for a while, I decided to go another route and work with a close friend to design a pair of shorts that worked. I designed them to fit me and people noticed. I wore them when I played and people noticed. The interest I received eventually grew into a small number of local area orders. This is what lead me to create the brand and offer it up to a market looking for solutions. I realized that these unbranded shorts met a need much larger than just my own, so I created a second pair of shorts and two pairs of trousers. Aveo was born and now I offer it up to you in order to help you better meet your apparel needs."
Being built similar to Darius, Aveo was the perfect match for me. I thank Darius for thinking of the bigger golfer and making sure we look good on and off the course.
Aveo Hero Golf Polo’s are a polyester blend that is both breathable and lightweight. The shirts have Breathe-Rite panels on the side to make sure you are as cool as possible increasing the ventilation while playing and wearing the polo. Wearing the shirt outside on the course I felt loose and cool with plenty of ventilation. The Hero Polo’s come in Red, White, and Blue and all are branded on the Chest, the yoke, and the slogan “Play Fearlessly” on the hem (typically will be tucked but its put there for the golfer and not the folks watching him bomb that drive).

The Aveo shorts are a big hit in my wardrobe. First off, the length is spot on. I am tired of golf shorts coming up above my knee. I don’t play basketball in the 70’s short shorts. These shorts came just past the knee cap and were a great length. Next the hidden comfort flex waistband offers an extra 2 inches of stretch. The shorts fit me perfectly and with the flex waistband, the shorts fit even better. The shorts are also polyester and they do offer moisture wicking technology that keeps your dry on those hot summer days. Even after washing and drying the shorts, they came out of the dyer ready to be worn and ready to play another round of golf. The shorts come in white, khaki, black and blue.
