The MBP's Golf Fashion for the Frugal Buyer

Let's face it, getting dressed for golf these days can be a costly endeavor. If you're not aware the MBP is a very frugal shopper, some will say cheap, I choose to think of it as budget conscious decisions.

 

So looking through my closet and at recent purchases I came to realize I have some nice golf clothes and didn't pay a ton. And it dawned on me - why am I not sharing this in case it can give others ideas.

 

So starting today I'll be keeping this as a running thread of all my golf wardrobe fashion finds and deals.

 

To kick us off I give you the sub $50 outfit:

 

Shirt by RW&Co on sale $24 - http://www.rw-co.com/Short-sleeve-polo-with-woven-collar/725983,default,pd.html?dwvar_725983_color=Evening%20blue&start=7

A reinvented classic, thanks to its contrasting woven collar and button placket.

  • Regular fit
  • Tailored collar
  • Chest buttoned pockets

Pants by Haggar "Cool 18" Flat front straight fit - On sale at Costco for $15 http://www.haggar.com/product/index.jsp?productId=32413636&cp=4011449.32728136&cp=4011449.32728136

Moisture wicking clothing is not good on a rainy day.  Yesterday, I wore a moisture wicking shirt and pants.  It began to sprinkle while we were on the 11th green, and before for I got to the bag to I was soaked.  Much more so than the four guys I was playing with.

 

I watched as a rain drop about an 1/8th in diameter hit my pant leg and immediately spread out to a 1/2" circle.  It did not take long to be completely wet.  Luckily, it stopped and dried out by 14.

Don't forget to checkout Kohls for some great deals.  I picked up 3 pairs of Fila golf shorts from the clearance section for $8.50 each after coupons over the winter.  They regularly have a selection of shirts, pants and shorts for well under $20 each.

Wow - a vanilla scented belt. Clearly I am not in the hipster group that shops for clothes based upon scents. Is this like a new thing that is all the rage? I guess if I was going to get something vanilla scented, I would prefer that it be my shoes or socks. My wife would agree with that.

I am trying a new brand Schontex on ebay by coincidence, claim as quick dry, moisture wicking and no smells. I gave to my dad to try if it is better than another brand on market.
