Bowler & Blake Limited, with a heritage dating back to 1917, has become firmly established as one of the foremost accessory companies in the worldwide golf industry.  The company's secret, it turns out, is really no secret at all. What has firmly established Bowler & Blake as THE industry leader is its steadfast commitment to fine quality, creativity, personalized service and value.

Over 35 years ago, Chris Collins, a young salesman from Manchester, England went to the PGA Merchandise Show in Miami, full of excitement, representing The London Badge & Button Company.

Chris walked the show floor making contacts and showing his line of blazer buttons, ties and crests where he came upon a booth that had some very interesting metal products (the ProClip® money clip as it turns out), and met Dick Bell (of W. L. Sutton, Est. 1917) who was making his full foray into the golf industry.

The two hit it off and began a relationship that has now spanned well over a quarter century! Along with Dick's son, Patrick, and Dick's wife and Patrick's mother, Tancy, they built what eventually became PG&A, Professional Gifts & Awards, one of the foremost accessory companies in the golf industry.

Fast forward to 2006...All have remained very close over the years, in fact, consider each other to be "family". However, Dick has retired, Patrick has sold PG&A and Chris remained in the golf industry in Europe. Chris and Patrick began talking about joining up again. It was decided that focusing on the resurgence of men's fashion accessories would be the way to go.

It's the birth of Bowler & Blake™, the rebirth of the "family" working together again! Since then, Bowler & Blake has designed custom woven silk ties, blazer crests and buttons to a star-studded clientele that includes the Ryder Cup, PGA Championship, LPGA Championship, Solheim Cup and many top facilities world-wide.

Bowler & Blake™...the new kid on the block...with deep roots going back to 1917.
