Callaway(R) Golf Apparel Introduces Opti-Series

Groundbreaking New Performance Features

MIAMI, June 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (Nasdaq:PERY) Callaway^® Golf
Apparel, a division of Perry Ellis International, Inc. has introduced a new
line of features, known as Opti-Series. Designed to offer golfers of all
levels the comfort and performance they crave, Opti-Series features employ
advancements that infuse Callaway Apparel with an optimal balance of
technology and design aesthetic. Each individual feature is designed to give
golfers the optimum in golf performance.

Opti-Dri technology transfers moisture away from the body to aid in rapid
evaporation, thereby allowing the garment to dry faster and stay drier longer.
Opti-Cool utilizes cooling factors in the fabric to transfer heat away from
the body, keeping the golfer cool. Opti-Shield technology offers golfers a
layer of UPF protection from the sun's harmful rays woven directly into the
fabric. Opti-Stretch technology features interwoven layers of flexible
fabrics, which provide unhindered range of motion, allowing golfers maximum
comfort through the full range of their swing. Opti-Vent fabrics feature
engineered ventilation to provide a garment with maximum breathability for
optimized comfort in warmer weather. Opti-Genic antimicrobial treatment is a
finish that reduces odor and maintains a garment's durability over time.
Opti-Repel creates a barrier of protection from inclement weather that is
resistant to both wind and water, and Opti-Therm fabrics provide golfers a
thermal layer designed to help withstand cold in all elements.

Callaway Opti-Series is the result of coordinated research, planning and
design efforts, drawing on years of experience as one of the leading brands in
the sport of golf. The Callaway name is synonymous with excellence,
performance and innovation, and the aim of the Opti-Series is to uphold that
standard and continue its tradition of infusing golf apparel with progressive
technologies and an uncompromising commitment to quality.
