To try and prevent a slagging at the club I need some advise on a Callaway top I've just bought online.
It was listed as a Mens but the zipper is on the RHS which is generally the ladies side.
Is it different in the US?

I lived in US and tbh I thought it was the same but on my last visit to US I bought a jacket in San Francisco airport from that was USPGA labelled (obviously men's tour!) and it also had zip on the 'wrong' side.  It was most definitely men's clothing.  My conclusion was either they work both ways (no laughing at the back) or it was a second.
Ping G25 9 Degree Ping TFC Regular
3 wood - TM V Steel Tour Issue - RIP Phenom Regular
5 wood - TM V Steel Tour Issue - RIP Phenom Regular
Rescues - 19&23 Mizuno MP650 - Orochi Regular
Mizuno MX300 5-PW Dynalite Gold Regular
Cleveland Rotex 2.0 Blade 50 & 56 (2 dot) - Dynamic Gold Regular
Putter - Wilson Staff 8883 (Black)
Pro V1 or Srixon AD333 Tour

More spare clubs, particularly 3 woods, than is feasible but less than I had!

Someone mentioned on the County Golf Under Armour thread about the sizing being US, that's where I got this top so can only conclude it at US thing as it certainly looks like a mens top.

I have a golf jacket I got in US which has the zip on the other side too.

I've never understood the woman/man zip thing. Fair enough it it was for left/right handed folk.
I suppose once it's up it looks the same, I'll just turn my back when I put it on.

There doesn't seem to be a standard in the states - but their sizing is always at least one bigger than ours in clothing i.e. their L is our XL.

Great place to buy clothes if you're fat bugger (or just L....) - I hated going there every few weeks, but now I miss it (as does my wallet)
