White Belt?


Recommended Posts

Nothing wrong with a white belt. Just needs to be paired with white shoes IMO... I have a Nike belt that's double sided White/Grey. It's pretty much my go-to belt as I have white shoes that I'll wear on nicer days and grey shoes for those spring and fall Michigan days that leave them... not as grey...

White belts, and white pants, are great, work for a lot of different outfits, and a kind of uniform unique to golf.  But, they up the first tee pressure...if you're announcing to the world that you're a golfer, you better have some game to back it up!

Just going to leave this hear, lest we forget JT in this years tournament of champions...white pants = bad idea

Oh yeah, another rule of white pants...have to pay attention to weather and course conditions!

White shoes, white belt, white cap

I used to think it was an old man's ensemble. But, now that I'm over 50 it looks good on me.

TIger is on the white belt train! But I don’t think Phil agrees!!

This is all I needed to see. Question answered.

For me, nope. Never.

I generally go by the rule to choose clothes for golf that I'd be just as comfortable wearing off the golf course. (Shoes, excepted, of course, though I do also have some spikeless shoes that are perfectly fine as off-course sneakers.)

Personally I don't care what other people think about how I dress - but that's just me. When other people start paying my mortgage then I will let them have an opinion on how I dress. I wear my everyday belt with golf shorts. I normally don't tuck my golf shirts in. Shirts that fit me well are always too short to tuck in without constantly messing with it (even with the strip inside the golf shorts meant to combat this issue) and if I buy shirts that are longer - they don't fit as well.

If you like it wear it - that's all that matters.

I wear a white belt at least half the time on the course: bought one as soon as I started golfing; and I believe I saw tiger with one in like 2011. White/grey/black are all “neutral” colors and match anything - according to my fashionista wife...

... Keeping up with fashion is a fools errand. I would not quite call it a scam, but the pants cuffs are IN but now OUT and wait back IN again quite a few times over the years. That said we all like to look good, but personal fashion of course is highly subjective. Find what works for you and stick with it. Brown and Black belts will always work with just about any colors but if you like a white belt, have at it. I think "fashion" that has lasted through the test off time is always a good choice. Bell bottoms, frayed pants leg bottoms, collar up on a polo are all casualties of fashion that never should have been. On the other hand blue jeans, khaki pants, comfortable polo's and black/brown belts are still great choices.

LOL! 😂 This thread is great. I currently don’t have a white belt, but I’m 39 and my waist is below 39 ... sooo, am I okay? 

I’ve always thought that white belts/pants/shorts can ONLY be worn between Memorial Day and Labor Day ... does that still apply?

The last time I wore a White Belt was back in the 60's. At the time they were called Mod Belts. Kind of wide too. Here's one for you fashion guys. I sometimes wear a light brown/tan western style belt. LOL It's mid-width I guess. One of those hand-tooled types but with a regular style buckle - not one of those giant rodeo buckles. LOL Surprisingly I've had quite a few complements.  And I'm not even a cowboy!

That's old news. It was for women's fashion anyway. Short history lesson. Started in the 30's and if you were a woman and wore white between Memorial Day and Labor Day you were considered upper class. Others wore darker colors signifying working class. 

You can wear what you want. So now you can pretend you are rich all year long.😁

My feeling has always been, your belt needs to match your shoes. If your wearing black shoes, wear a black belt, brown shoes, brown belt, and so on. The more classic saddle style golf shoes that are white with black or brown leather could go either way but I usually match my belt to the saddle color. All white, or predominantly white shoes, wear a white belt.
That said, golf is the only occasion that I would ever wear a white belt, in fact I only own one white belt and it is exclusively for golf when I’m wearing white shoes.
