Classic Style or Bright/Bold?

Recommended Posts

Are you a classic style dresser or like to been seen from 3 holes away? I like a little of both, mostly classic looks but don't mind a little Flair, just not full hunting blaze orange or other neon colors.

 

Both are fine!! Which do you prefer?

 

These two just happen to be 2 of my favorite golfers.

Well a lot depends on one's age and body size. In other words as my wife says "being able to pull it off" Now me being a fat old guy I would look silly I would think In the Ricky outfit. A younger guy with his build heck yes. I tend to go neutral on slacks either dark blue or gray the same in shorts. I do tend to wear more conservtive shirts Most of my shirts are dark or neutral colors but I did have a few striped shirts which makes a big guy look bigger,  My old man was a sorta big guy not as big as me but he tended to dress in the Doug Sanders or Jimmy Demaret style but he could pull it off. Now on shoes I did tend to go more traditional but that changed. For a while I wore Converse Chucky Taylors for ankle support in fact that is part of my persona and legend here on the beach and on golf forums. I lost weight and got the ankle issues fixed. My friend who was our GM was a Nike Staffer and he gave me a nice pair of Nike shoes white with lime green> I dressed them up with lime green laces. My other pair is a solid white pair of dry Joys. I ended up putting in a set of pink laces I bought from a young lady selling them for Breast Cancer Research. I sorta caught it some until I started snarling back WHY I had them in my shoes. Hats I wear hats in the winter and visors in the summer. I have all kinds mostly gifts from my late friend Ralphie. He would buy visors where ever he went. When he passed his wife gave me 3 boxes full never worn. My wife did buy me a big floppy golf hat last year and I love it except when the wind blows.

I'm classic all the way and as Big Stu said, old folks tend to shy away from the bright and bold stuff. Wear what makes ya happy as you only go around once [emoji6]🏌️

I can't do orange pants, or loud pants, or heavily patterned pants so I'm more traditional in that respect.  I tend to wear standard grey, blue, brown and black golf slacks.  For shirts, I don't mind a few bright colors here or there.  See my avatar.

Who makes brown golf shoes, besides Puma? I only wear bright colors to distract a certain person. You guessed it, my dads league partner Kevin. And by bright I mean Augusta Greenish.

I gravitate toward classic tops/bottoms but I'm comfortable branching out a bit with the accessories. For some reference I personally draw the line at flat brim caps.

I'm with you on this one, I like a little bit of both. I tend to keep it classic, but sometimes I'll wear something with something that has a bold accent. I never go too crazy though and wear full neon.

Unless its super windy, the Sick Flow flys around too much anything over 10kts of wind..... [emoji23]

Someone gave me a flat brimmed hat one time and I did not know what it was seriously. I did my standard redneck thing broke it down and put the brim in the top of a Mason jar overnight. Any hat unless it has been treated redneck style is too flat for me same for visors

IMHO you pull that off fine. Me I would look like one of those barrels you see beside the highway in the construction zones

 

BTW  That hole looks exactly like #3 at Island Green Country Club here at the beach 

That course closed last year. Not that long but a fun little course to play It was one of the "locals escape courses" during the spring and fall tourist golf seasons

Here's my Flair. UK Ryder cup colors, yeah yeah I know. But they caught my eye and I wasn't thinking.

 

Plus my grandmother always told me I needed a pair of blue suede shoes.

BTW BIG STU that was good of you to wear those pink laces! I might do that. My mom is a Survivor. Never thought of a way to rep, I'd rock pink laces for sure! Thank you!

If Greg Norman does not make it, Then I probably don't wear it......seems that I like the Greg Norman style of golf attire. My wife really likes it too as she likes how they come out of the washer and dryer.
