In 1986, Dr. Bernd Kirsten and Christel Kirsten founded GOLFINO: a company with Italian roots and which the couple still runs today as a family business.
When Bernhard Langer won the US Masters in 1985 and became the world’s number one player a year later, the Kirstens decided to make the most of the passion for golf in Europe and established GOLFINO – a niche label that initially only sold knitwear for golfers. Eye-catching motifs and adornments were the trademarks of fashion in the1980s and the Kirstens successfully integrated them into the golf wear sector.
GOLFINO rapidly developed into a provider of complete outfits made of high-quality, technological materials. The consistent use of performance fabrics consisting of new high-tech materials, which are always impeccably processed, ensures that the carefully coordinated outfits are ideal for the golf course and cut a great figure in the city, too. The blend of elegance, authentic style and sportiness defines the design concept even today.
