Peter Millar: Golfing and Greatness


If you go golfing in Fort Wayne, or anywhere for that matter, you probably know the name Peter Millar. It is synonymous with the gold standard for lifestyle golf apparel. Men around the world love Peter Millar for its high quality and ability to be worn on and off the green. It is so lux in fact, that Peter Millar outfitted the International President’s Cup Team.

But the best part about Peter Millar is that despite it being a global brand, it retains its Raleigh, North Carolina roots. It is aristocratic but not stuffy. It’s classic and old-world, but possesses modern American sharpness. It is a glass of 12-year-old, single barrel bourbon, neat.

The other best part about Peter Millar is how its founder, Chris Knott, chose the name for the company. Looking for an aristocratic-sounding name to brand his new venture, he spied one on an old leather lawn bowling ball of his mother’s, and “Peter Millar” it was. If that’s not inspiration, I don’t know what is.

“Our customers love Peter Millar. Its southern, all-American feel resonates here in Fort Wayne,” says Chris Lambert, owner of Christopher James Menswear in Fort Wayne, Ind. “And its appeals to every generation. Both the older guys and the younger guys come in asking for Peter Millar.”

So, if you need something for the golf course or the boardroom (or both), Christopher James Menswear has got you covered. As for your back-swing…well, that’s up to you.
