Jim Nantz has a new partner — Vineyard Vines.

The company will reveal today that it is collaborating with the well-known sports commentator on a new collection of golf apparel and accessories for men, women and children. The line will debut for spring 2019 at select Vineyard Vines stores, on its web site and at green grass shops around the country. Specific items and prices have not yet been established.The two have worked together in the past when Vineyard Vines created the Forget-Me-Knot collection of neckwear, bags, belts and shirts in the spring of 2017 with 20 percent of the proceeds benefiting the Nantz National Alzheimer Center at Houston Methodist Hospital. Nantz founded the NNAC in 2011 to honor his father who suffered for 13 years with the disease.

Regarding the golf line, Shep Murray, Vineyard Vines' co-chief executive officer and cofounder, said Nantz "has been the voice of golf for 32 years and resides steps from the American golf treasure known as Pebble Beach Golf Links. No one lives the golf lifestyle more than Jim — he knows not only what it looks like but also what it feels like. As a brand, we've partnered with some of the greatest institutions in the world, like the Kentucky Derby and the America's Cup and it’s very exciting to now join forces with golf's greatest voice."
