FrontRunners: Skins Game

  • William Kissel

Golf is a sport of accessories—from the shoes and bags to the tees and ball markers. Fred Distenfeld of New York City’s Luxury Accessories International (877.778.4355, www.luxuryaccessories.com) thinks a golfer’s accessories should be as personal as his swing, which is why his 52-year-old company recently began offering customizing of any of its golf-specific items, including tee caddies, shoehorns, cleat bags, and even stretch belts. Golfers can choose from several colors and a range of skins, such as calf, cordovan, ostrich, and lizard. Says Distenfeld: “We’ve even customized golf bags in colored alligator.”
