Has Golf Attire Become Haute Couture, Or Have We Always Been Fashionable?


Recommended Posts

This article from Financial Times popped up yesterday and it got me thinking about Golf Attire and how many designers are catching on (and cashing in) to the surge in popularity of the sport. However, I've been of the mind that Golf Attire has always been pretty fashionable for the time period - some looks even becoming timeless!

So what do you guys think? Are we in a new Golden Age of golf fashion being seen everywhere, have we always been fashionable, or is golf attire a joke and always will be? Special shout-out to anyone posting pics of themselves playing in Jorts 🤣

Well it has always been colorful from the 50s forward with Jimmy Demaret and later on with Doug Sanders in the 60s and then Nicklaus and Palmer with those sweaters. The thing about golf fashion is som

As long as the clothes are clean and there are no holes in them, I couldn't care less what anyone wears on a golf course.

Don't ever underestimate how comfortable knickers are....

I think some of the golf style is too stylish or stuffy. I think it should be more sporty and fun. Hell, look at what I wear, half my golf attire has a skull and crossed clubs on them!

Let there be color! I love the fun or loud designs that are coming out recently. What I don't like are the designs and high end companies that try to bring their street look to the course. Things like cropped pants or slim fit shirts. I'll never like flat-brimmed hats either. I think there's enough out there for everyone to find their own style though.

Personally I like to match a solid color polo with a contrasting pair of pants. Sometimes stripes or a pattern is ok. I use hats, shoes, and belts to bring in even more color.

My wife tells me I'm "pattern mixing" all the time...I guess that means I'm a fashion forward golfer😎

I love the style options these days; colors and patterns have proliferated since the early 2000’s. Remember how baggy everything was? Now it’s slim fit or euro cut, and in a few years it’ll be on to something else. But I hope the colors stay...

I have a couple shorts with a plaid pattern, but all my pants are solid. But I'll wear just about any color combo

might be able to pull off that black-on-black outfit in the article (minus the bucket hat, I look like sh!t in bucket hats), but there are exactly two days a year in Richmond, VA where you can wear it's cool enough to wear a black shirt and warm enough to wear any shorts.

The fashion on tour is getting a little better, but the fashion on the first tee at the courses where I play is not moving forward.

Linksoul makes stuff you can credibly wear off the golf course, which is nice.

I'd like to see more courses give up on collared shirts, although I'm so preppy, it'd be tough to get me to play in anything else.

I did just get a nice North Face hoodie from work, and I could totally wear that thing on the course.

No Sam Ryder "skinny pants", going sockless, or white belts for me.  My wife keeps wanting me to get long pants versions of the Izod and Adidas shorts I wear but I just dislike wearing slacks while golfing.  If I'm playing cold spring or fall rounds in Montana, a pair of Carhartt blue jeans works perfect 👍.

No, no, yes I rock the white belt! Most of my pants are Izod and Haggar Cool 18, much more affordable than the other golf brands and very durable. I am fine wearing pants until it gets above 80 then it's shorts.

Well it has always been colorful from the 50s forward with Jimmy Demaret and later on with Doug Sanders in the 60s and then Nicklaus and Palmer with those sweaters. The thing about golf fashion is some guys can pull off styles that others can not. take for an example an old big guy like me--- I can not pull off the plaid look or the white belt look but see some that can. Golf IMHO leads itself open to creating your own style. I am the guy you see in the summer with either Kaki or dark blue shorts with either outlet store or GW Polo shirt wearing a set of beat up golf shoes with shorty socks. also have my floppy Pukka hat with Stenson type of shades smoking a cigar. Since I have retired I have went back hippie again with long hair and a beard. I could care less what some one else wears and I do not give 2 hoots if they like or dislike what I wear. In fact thinking of going to what I call the Panama Jack or Jimmy Buffet type shirt this season. But yeah I do my own thing
That's what it's all about man!

I like the variety that's out there, so much individuality.  Makes it really something when a foursome shows up in all the same thing like a uniform (be still my military "dress right dress" heart ) (hey those golf carts are not lined up right).

This is my regular threesome... everything goes ⛳   🏌️‍♂️

I try to keep my golf attire to stuff that I can wear to work also (makes it a hell of a lot easier to just change my socks after a round). Some bright colors and for tournaments I’ll mix it up but pretty vanilla over here

It'll be interesting to see if my younger daughter still wants to wear matching outfits in the parent-child tournament.  She's 13 now, and I can see her putting the kibosh on this.
