Golf Threads Interview: Alial Fital’s "Artisanal Fashion Designer" Gibran Hamdan: "I Want to be True to Myself"

This week's Golf Threads Blog features an interview with Seattle-based Alial Fital menswear designer Gibran Hamdan. The former NFL football player discusses his “American Made Artisanal Fashion” approach and his philosophy behind AF’s “Stand Apart Movement.”

Seattle, WA, April 29, 2015 --( This week's Golf Threads blog features an in-depth interview by blogger and fan, Greg Monteforte, with designer Gibran Hamdan whose men’s line, Alial Fital (AF), offers a “limited edition” 2015 Masters-Inspired polo collection to honor the PGA Augusta Masters Tournament throughout the month of April.

Monteforte caught the busy Seattle designer in the midst of planning upcoming collections inspired by Wimbledon, the Kentucky Derby and the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers Bay near Tacoma, Wash. Only 100 shirts will be made for each collection.

In 2013, Monteforte named AF Ambassador Bo Van Pelt to his “10 Best Dressed Golfers” list in his “Style Insider” column for—noting the pro golfer “always looks crisp, elegant and stylish in Alial Fital...”

The Golf Threads full pictorial interview can be found on the GT blog. (“Alial Fital & Gibran Hamdan: Standing Apart”:

Here are some highlights:

GolfThreads (GT): How does an NFL quarterback transition to a fashion designer?

Gibran Hamdan (GH): I am creative and drawn to the artistic side of things. One thing I am most proud of, five years into Alial Fital, most people I meet don’t know that I ever played in the NFL. I’m known for doing something else well that brings me joy.

GT: What benefits will customers see in American made apparel?

GH: It allows me to design in smaller batches. The result is the freedom to produce more unique styles. Customers love that only 100 people in the world will ever own one of our limited edition designs. And I can guarantee that a 12-year old is not sewing them in a sweatshop.

GT: At a time when professionals and amateurs alike are turning to day-glow colors and aggressive patterns in an effort to stand out, you’ve started the Stand Apart Movement. What’s the difference between standing out and standing apart?

GH: Our Stand Apart movement is less about the brand, and more about our fans and customers. It aims to have men confidently and independently decide what they want to wear. If that’s wearing Alial Fital, then great—if not, that’s fine too. It’s not about control, marketing, or the bottom line. I want to be an authentic person who is true to myself. And I want to drive anyone who sees our brand to be authentic to themselves and their own style. It’s about conveying that message.

GT: What’s the profile of an Alial Fital customer?

GH: The desire to search for the Unique identifies our loyal Ambassador.
