...it's funny... outside of the shoes I feel like I "dress for the course" a lot.

Most days I can just change my shoes, throw on a hat and go right to the course.

I work in a "business casual" environment.  Rarely do circumstance require me to wear a shirt and tie.  Therefore, I basically dress for the golf course on a daily basis. 

 

Now, if I could figure out shoes, I wouldn't even need to swing through the locker room.

I actually have a pair of the Footjoy Professional shoes for this very reason.  They look more like the business casual shoes, but they are also spikeless golf shoes.  Perfect combination for going straight from the office to the course.

I have worn the white belt on-course and I need to make the commitment to not do it again! Not because of this article, but I've always felt it was a little over the top. One's belt should match the shoes, but in golf, I try to match the belt to the shorts more often.

 

I wouldn't be caught dead with a pair of golf shoes off-course, UNLESS I am running into the grocery store, or grabbing a bite post-round, etc. Never as a part of a wardrobe off-course for sure!!!

 

Belts are expensive!!!! Who wants to spend $50 on about 10 different belts?! Sheesh. With the heat down here and sweating through the to the belt, most times I wear the cloth Nike belts that have the interchangeable buckle/clasp. No need to ruin $50 belts!

... Fashion is a fools errand. You can never keep with current fashion. Don't get me wrong, it is totally cool to be in fashion or interested in keeping up with trends if it makes you happy. But just like golf clubs, clothing OEM's need to come up with new reasons for customers to buy new clothes, hence fashion. Got a big kick out of "sleeves should hit mid bicep and slightly hug your arms". Those of us old enough to have lived thru more than a few fashion trends remember when plaid, brightly colored pants and flashy colored tight fitting polyester shirts in the early 70's were the official uniform. Replaced with khaki pants and loose fitting single colored cotton polo's. Now 40 years later, plaid pants are back in and yup, tighter fitting flashy colored shirts.  White belts and shoes were mandatory for the fashion conscious and now they are out? I am still wearing black and brown belts like I always have depending on what I am wearing that day. 

... When I was in my mid 20's I had a boat on a lake in Columbus Ga and our wardrobe at that time was jeans or khaki's, tee shirts/polo's, white athletic socks and sneakers. This really cool old timer (probably my age now) wore half calf nylon black socks with leather sandals, polyester shorts and close fitting tank tops. We asked him why he dressed with such uncool clothes and he would be the sh!t if he changed his wardrobe. He LOL'ed and told us when we are his age we would be wearing what we are wearing now and the younger generation would want to know why we were so "uncool". There was wisdom in his words.

I don't worry about "fashion". The stuff I wear works for me as it's probably considered classic or boring depending on your age. I don't wear bright colors much either. Just not my thing. My last white belt was called a Mod belt that became popular in the 60's. It's long gone.

I wear either white or black golf shoes. Mostly black during the winter months. I replace the fashion laces that come with shoes and string them with waxed laces. Those work.

I get a kick out of all the "dudes" at the course that get all dressed up in the latest fashions. And boy do they look pretty! LOL However, 99% of them couldn't break an egg if their life depended on it. At the other end of the spectrum are the old guys my age (62) dressing like they're 25. These poor slubs don't have any game either. And on top of it all they look ridiculous. LOL

Isn't life grand? :)

ROTFLMAO!!! My sentiments exactly. I have never in my 60 years owned a white belt. Always have worn heavy duty Western style belts not fancy but thick and tough. But being a big guy I wear my shirt tail out anyhow. I usually wear gray or dark blue shorts and what ever color of Golf shirt that fits me. Shoes currently both sets are freebies. My Nike are white with blue and green accent and the swoosh is blue. I have neon green laces in them that match the accents. The FJs are solid white but I have day glo pink laces in them. I bought them from a young lady selling them for Breast Cancer. She asked if I would really wear them. My wife assured her that I would because #1 I do not give a rip and #2 I lost my son to cancer. I actually ran into that young lady at the Cancer Booth at a charity scramble and yes I had the FJs with the pink laces on. I used to wear visors most of the time but a couple of years ago my wife bought me a Pukka brand floppy hat or bush hat for golf and I wear it. Back when I wore visors I would wear anything since my late friend Ralphie gave me maybe 50 visors. LOL I would like wear a Ping visor and not a Ping club in the bag. I can tell you some really good stories involving the prim and proper tourists and my ways of dress

I was thinking if I had come up your way to stick a peg in the ground and saw you with pink laces in ya shoes, I might run the other way... :blink:   Then I finished your post and I am mighty proud of you for wearing those pink laces.  You da man STU!

 

I wear laid back  simple colors and I generally wear black shoes in the winter.  I don't like to go mud bogging in white stuff....

I respectfully disagree with this guy about white belts. They are not for everyone but some guys can pull off the look. I think the author has lost too much money to guys in white belts.

I'm retired... wear what I want and it must be comfortable. Other than that I don't care.

I wear what I want when I want because that's what I want. Well unless the wife gets involved then we wear what we want.

I can't remember the last time I wore anything but shorts & golf shirt or a tee shirt.

 

Retirement is a beautiful thing.

Nah, I wear a white belt most of the time. Bright colors are my go to. Wear what makes you feel good because sometimes your game sure doesn't.

Thanks for posting this article. I read it and agree with some of it, (wait for it) BUT I think this article is targeted for the young golfers. As a middle aged man, I will never wear skinny pants or flat brimmed caps. I don't think any middle aged male should.
