Same here.  I have a bunch of Vineyard Vines polos that I picked up super cheap in auctions.

I actually found a company called 32 degrees. I assume they are struggling with covid because they have dropped their prices significantly. I have a few of their polos and they have been solid so far. Hard to beat sub $10 polos

I also love Travis Matthew, their polo's are great on and off. I would never have spent $90 for a polo (unless I was in a pro shop on a Golf Trip)...but I happened to find them at Nordstrom's Rack for like $25 shopping with the wife, now it is all I get.....

Yes, in most cases it’s worth it.  I’d rather buy a $50 FJ polo and have it for several years without collars rolling, dealing with Irish pennants or pulls in the material than a shirt that will do the contrary after a few washes. 

 

.... I have over 30 Foot Joy shirts and never paid more than $29 for any of them. Most I purchased at $25 or less. None were the current model and of course but all were on sale. I always look when playing a course because every n ow and then they are being blown out to make room for the new models, and the PGA SS can also have great sales on FJ.

@808nationand I think a like. Pay for good clubs, shoes and only buy budget friendly apparel. I like Kohls for reasonably priced golf shorts, their Chaps line are some of the most comfortable shorts I've worn. Stein Mart used to be my goto for reasonably priced golf shirts, but now Academy Sports and Dick's clearance sales are where I find the best deals. I like the quality & feel of some of the higher end polos, but I'd rather spend that money on tee times.

... 👍  While I almost always notice what kind of clubs people I am paired up with are playing out of simple curiosity and usually notice their golf shoes for comfort reasons, I never pay any attention to anyone's apparel. Obviously really loud or poorly matched clothing catches my eye but whether their shorts and shirts come directly from Foot Joy and Trevor Mathew or Kohls and Stein Mart I would never know. And I would really have no idea if your shirt is the current offering so buying last years or discontinued styles and colors at 25-50% off seems like a no brainer to me. I only wear Foot Joy shirts and paid $25 for most of them on closeout, some less and my shorts are a combo of Stein Mart, Budget Golf and Greg Norman from Costco and all were under $20. 

... The point being very few people pay any attention to your apparel as long as you look like you know how to dress.

Bobby Jones shirts are extremely well made with finely woven cotton but are $150+. Masters golf shirts are available ONLY for non-members at the Masters Tournament from $150-$250; there are no phone, mail, or internet purchases. Sea Island cotton for warm weather and Merino wool and cashmere for cooler weather are my favorites; these are usually available only at high end menswear stores. Joseph Bank has some great stuff and it’s frequently half price on sale. Life and golf are too short to wear cheap and poorly made clothes.

Are you paying for the name? Basically, YES! My family has been in the clothing manufacturing company, as was I for a while, and the same manufacturer made the same products with different labels. I sold clothing for major retailers and discounters, the same exact item, with different labels. Outlet store products, in most cases are NOT the same products in the main locations. They are cheaper made items with the major label sold at discount prices. It's one thing to buy at a major store when it's on sale opposed to an outlet store or on line. Clothing mark-up is generally 70%, although I sold shirts for $12 wholesale, the store marked it up to $59, then on sale for $29. Nice profits!

Have a more golf shirts than I can wear. Most of them were purchased for $30 or less.

Right now I only buy new shirts if I'm on vacation or go to a nice club, which unfortunately always cost way more than $30

But besides clubs, I usually notice what apparel my playing partners are wearing.  I think it's kind of hard not to

It's been my experience that people who feel a need to spend a lot of money on clothing and most other things hope that it will make people think they have good taste when in reality they have no taste whatsoever. They judge objects and experiences by how much they cost because they have no idea what looks good, tastes good, performs well, etc., so they substitute the cost for their total lack of judgment.

Had a friend like this who bought the ugliest coat any of our group had ever seen. When we urged him to return it, he said we clearly had no taste because it was the most expensive coat in the high end store where he had bought it. When we said the high cost didn't change the fact that it just might be the ugliest coat in the world, he just looked at us like we were crazy and said no coat that cost that much could possibly be ugly. 

I don't need a high price tag to judge attractiveness, quality, or utility. I'm capable of thinking for myself. A $12 piece of clothing, a $15 round of golf, a $14 case of beer, a $10 meal can be better than those costing many times the price (or not). Price or the name on the label are a sad substitute for discernment.

I cant agree more, I never pay full price for any of the name brands, I get most at Ross, TJ Max, Sirrea

I have found Nike, Adidas and UA and Travis Matthew at the above stores. (DYI Calloway makes the Travis stuff)

I have found some stretechy pants at Sierra that are so comfortable, I bought four pairs of different colors.

I agree, I pay good money for  my shoes!

 

Play in SW WA and in the PDX area

I wear nothing but FJ shirts and apparel.  You can always find good sales on them at the end of the seasons on line.  The fit and the quality is amazing.  I have some shirts in my closet I have had for five years plus by FJ.  They hold their own.  That is why they are carried only in pro shops and golf stores.  The lesser quality shirts can be purchased at discounters for a reason.  Sometimes price is not everything.  FJ makes a standard and an athletic fit for all bodies.  😃

Teetimegolfpass is a book that provides tons of courses for under 20 bucks in our area of the country. I've saved over $600 using it this year. 

Anheiser busch is test marketing lucky streak in a few states. 14 bucks for a 30 pack at my local distributor. Not bad at all.  There are other beers that are in the same category if you don't have lucky streak near you.  Certainly better than all the fruit ipa's and chocolate stoudts the beer snobs shell out big bucks for so they can brag about their amazing taste in beer. If you like beer so much, why do you hide the taste with fruit and chocolate? See my original comments. Beer snobs may be the most flagrant examples of what I'm talking about. Although the clothing snobs, gear snobs, guitar snobs, and car snobs are in the running. 

Thanks for asking.

Wish I had something like that by me.  Because of life, need to play on weekends and tee off before 11am.  Cheapest by me is $56 with cart, all the way up to $115.

Nice job on the cheap 30 pack.  I'm happy when I get a case of Ultra for $24.
