Golf Apparel-Country Club Styling - Page 2

post #16 of 24
's alright. Your comments being significantly more pointed, don't think it's really redundant. Golf clothes are to everyday wear as basketball jerseys are to everyday wear. Some people do it, but unless you fit a certain type, it's probably not going to look good. Course, people will wear it anyway, because it's comfortable and that's their thing. 's alright. EDIT: Honestly, it fits certain people. My dad is a big middle aged white guy who golfs a lot and wears Baltusrol golf shirts regularly. I would not necessarily encourage my dad to wear anything else.

Well, unfortunately I probably need to play naked then, I am 5'7" 180, but I do wear a 33 waist and a 42 coat, so not to bad, but I make up for my vertical impairidness by playing to a 7. So, I guess all is not too bad.

Wow - LA Guy - don't be afraid to share your true feelings about this subject   And I figured Ernest would be the first one to flame me about this.
At least I don't call you farmer. And although I hate those brands and the whole "country club" image they seek to convey, some of them (Bobby Jones, Tommy Bahama, for example) are at least reasonable well made.  Seriously though, unless you feel the need to look like the bad guy in Happy Gilmore, if you are going to wear a Tommy Bahama button up, no khakis.  Loosen up the image with jeans and sneakers.  And similarly, if you are going to wear khakis (pleats still highly inadvisable), go with a long sleeve graphic tee in a neutral color, and not a golf shirt.

Actually, I think proper golfing attire is great when you are actually playing golf (although I personally dress like Happy Gilmore when I do (very occasionally) hold a golf club). It's just off the course that the look is offputting. Like Shoreman said, it's analogous to wearing jerseys off the court. Look at the real ballers. They usually don't, for a good reason.

Actually, I believe Bradford summed it all up as to the people who do and do not wear this style, they tend to be either from the south or southwest region, also middle aged, which most here seem not to be, and maybe a little more conservative set. I rather see a lot of men wearing the golf look in and out of our store, and believe it or not, these same people are still buying and wearing kilts with tassles, and even woven shoes for that sockless look...but the squarer toe thing is not a big hit with men in Atlanta, except for those under the age of 35 mostly. Kenneth Coles and the likes of that styling just did not catch on all well here except for the mall shopping guy. We believe it or not still do a hefty business in white bucs, and saddle shoes in colors, so it must be a regional as well as age style difference.

Hmmm... Are there a lot of displaced Scotsmen residing in the South/Southwest? Aren't kilts a little warm for the summers there?

Darn - you just nailed my typical style. Sometimes reading this board is depressing because I realize how unstylish I am. Bradford In the words of JohnApril - "This thread depresses me."

Are we not aspiring dandies? Plus fours in winter. Argyle socks. Golf shoes with kilties. Fair Isle sweaters. Skimmer hats. And no baseball caps, please, under any circumstances. Will

Will, my man, between you and Bradfors, I almost feel like I fit in, the baseball hat thing, made for the field, not the course....did I not hear something like that earlier? Oh well, nice to see a few gentlemen that can dress casually, and still preppy and not worry about it.
