PEBBLE BEACH, CALIF. (October 10, 2019) – vineyard vines, a brand best known for its smiling pink whale logo, announced today a new concept store featuring the Jim Nantz by vineyard vines collection.

“We are excited to team up once again with Jim Nantz, a long-time resident of Pebble Beach and the voice of golf for over 30 years,” said Shep Murray, vineyard vines CEO and co-founder. “Following the great success of the launch of Jim Nantz by vineyard vines in spring 2019, we’re looking forward to engaging with the community in Pebble Beach and further sharing Every Day Should Feel This Good moments with all who stop by.”
“Jim is one of golf’s most respected figures and we’re thrilled to bring our partnership full circle with the Pebble Beach concept store,” added Ian Murray, vineyard vines CEO and co-founder. “We look forward to also expanding our retail footprint on the West Coast and finding new ways to outfit our customers both on and off the course.”
“To call Pebble Beach the home of this new collection is a dream come true,” said Jim Nantz. “I am grateful to Shep and Ian for their support from day one. We are committed to creating the next great golf apparel brand and this is a gigantic step on our exciting journey. Pebble Beach is the ultimate golf destination, but it is more than just that. Every facet of the resort lives up to the gold standard put forth by CEO Bill Perocchi and his remarkable team. Our new store will be a perfect reflection of the Pebble Beach way of life.”
