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

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 ⛳   🏌️‍♂️

Exactly what I was talking about earlier--- Your bud in the Loudmouth pants pulls it off well IMHO where I could not pull that look off

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 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

🍻 completely agreed with your assessment of him!  During that round both of them were working out how we all would have those and what colors would be appropriate for each. I would prefer a kilt before wearing those if I was going for a retro look but it won't work with modern golf shoes and compression sports socks, so a big NO.

Though I do not have a boat like appearance, I would like to wear a golf outfit with this kind of black and white pattern 👍 would be just my kind of thing!  2089061190_camoPTboat.jpg.ceb64571e2734278327712ea2453e074.jpg

I think we have hit a time where there is something for everyone. If you like fitted pants or straight leg or joggers, golfs got you. If you like 1/4 zips or sweatshirts or crew necks, golfs got you. If you like regular collared polos or blade collared polos or TW mock polos, golfs got you. If you like ball caps or flat bills or bucket hats, golfs got you.

The thing that most of the public courses I play at look for is a collar and, maybe a belt and more specifically - NO JEANS. I've even seen that posted inside the clubhouse.

Other than that you can kind of -- be you. 

I actually had one head pro at a public course reprimand me for wearing a t-shirt and shorts on the practice green ( I wasn't playing just practicing ). He asked that I wear a collared shirt at all times since they are trying to improve the reputation of the course - or some garbage like that. I was able 3 seconds from telling him to eff off but decided to take the high road.

I don't mind; I find golf shirts/shorts/pants comfortable but some people need to get with the program.

I'm somewhat fussy about what I wear - clean and proper fitting clothes and shorts. However, I could care less what others wear as long as they abide by course rules, i.e. collared shirts, etc. Each to their own taste just don't play slow 😁.

FYI I love the recent innovation of waistbands that keep shirts tucked in  - don't love the flat brimmed hats even though I'm a Fowler fan.

I used to hate and I mean hate watching people play golf with shirts untucked. I don’t know why but it was just my issue I suppose. 
 

Two years ago I was playing a PM round with my dad. We weren’t in a rush but caught a foursome of guys wearing the plaid shorts, untucked polos and sneakers. They had a radio and a case of beer in the back of the cart and a couple foot long subs. 
 

They weren’t throwing clubs, acting like clowns and would allow every group to play through. Just a couple friends enjoying time together. Isn’t that what this is all about?
 

Personally, I like to dress nice but I won’t judge anyone for their clothing on the course.

I don't know how people can be comfortable in jeans anyways. But a lot of public courses near me have dropped all dress code stipulations. They aren't worried about looks, just cash.

For me, it goes far beyond golf --  nothing says low-class like wearing your flannel pajama bottoms to the airport.   I'm most comfortable in a pair of khakis and a polo shirt -- on or off the course.  I'm just a conservative old fart, I guess.  Deal with it. 😄 😄

I played in TX (Rio Grande valley) with my buddy who only wears jeans and they could care less down there! And those were nice courses too.

Another take from the WSJ....

https://www.wsj.com/articles/hoodies-jordans-macklemore-golf-enters-its-streetwear-moment-11615319244

 

The liberal, even fun approach to golf style that brands like Bogey Boys and Whim have taken appeals to golfers like Jacob Suarez, 27, a PGA-certified instructor in Phoenix. Growing up, Mr. Suarez abhorred the khaki-and-polo dress code imposed by many golf clubs. He would rather have teed up in his skate shoes and jeans. He believed conformist dress codes kept players like him—young men who aren’t white—off the course. Today, many courses have relaxed their codes just as nascent brands are expanding into golf fashion. At many clubs, a hoodie is now as course-appropriate as a pressed polo. Mr. Suarez regularly plays in Patagonia fleeces, Dickies trousers and Jordan sneakers. Said Mr. Suarez, “Golf attire is just whatever you wear when you play golf. There shouldn’t be a specific code for it.”

Well most courses in this area used to be like that until they woke up and smelled the coffee and realized they were in a beach tourist area. Now some of those courses that did not allow non collored shirts now sell them in the Pro Shop with the club's name on them.

Now I will say those guys that are wearing them IMHO pull the look off well Now the guy looking at the picture on the far right is a big guy and a little smaller than I am and he is dressed similar to as I would be. I do wear shorty socks and a big floppy hat and shades though.

I had forgot about that on hoodies. I guess it may be in this tourist area but a lot of courses sell hoodies with of course the club name on them. I go along with Mr Suarez 110%. It may be the way I was raised. My Old Man ran a public daily fee course--- The only dress code was " Gentlemen Must Wear Shirts In Clubhouse" That was because my Step Mom worked in there as did several lady teachers off school for the summer

I get to play on the road often. Sometimes on some upscale courses. I could think of nothing worse than being asked to leave because I was not meeting the dress code. I happened to me once over my shorts not being the correct length about 25 years ago. I was at a resort course. I never let that happen again.

My club has a dress code and I make sure any guest of mine knows. You have to have a golf shirt and tucked in, close to knee length shorts. No tee shirts, no jeans, no backwards or sideways golf hats, no tank tops, no metal spikes. 

But these are what I was always used to when golf attire was a little stuffier (before Tiger). So for me it is normal golf attire. It is also my company's mimimum work dress code (except no shorts). So I can leave work and hit the course by just changing shoes or pants to shorts and shoes. 

I know a lot of you feel differently about dress codes. But I have no issue with them if it means getting to play a nice course. I tried to play in jeans once and hated it.

Really no problem with dress codes if I want to play that venue------ You know the part about being in their house and their rules. What part of the problem was down here in the past was some courses trying to be more than they were. Pissed a lot of the tourists off. In fact some of those courses are no more. A lot of it has to do with demographics. This is a vacation area and I can see some folks wanting to play and let their hair out so to speak which they may not be able to do at their home track. Courses had to adapt to "snag that tourist dollar". But yeah if I was playing a nice course with a dress code I would abide just do not ask me to cut my hair or shave.
