    Get some golfcore chinos, then put brass knuckles in the backpocket and sandpaper it so it makes a fade in the shape of the brass knuckles. Everyone on the course will be afraid of you. Thus, you will win!

    Teehee, tee hee. Silly moderator. Not sure brass knuckles would scare anyone with a 9-iron.

    Many thanks, errybody. Will perfect my swing, cop some golf-ish threads, and post "after" pics.

    I'm not really sure what industry you are talking about, and whether or not you are joking, but if it is warm I would just wear regular khaki shorts with the 9 inch pleats and a tucked in polo shirt (the brand doesn't really matter). I personally like Nike shoes the best, but of course that is up to you.

    If it is a bit cooler, go for khakis instead of the shorts. If you want some ideas just google Tiger and check out some of his outfits. He usually looks pretty good on the course with color coordination and what have you.

    Am I the only one who thinks that Tiger looks like crap on the course? He is NOT my handle-sake. You should only button the top button of a polo if you're over 70. And Italian.

    Haha, have you seen Phil Mickelson?

    At least Tiger's clothes KIND OF fit. IMO of course [​IMG]

    Thanks, Max. I actually HAVE pants like that (though Diesel) and a red AA polo that matches. Never thought of it as golf wear, but now I see that I could pull it off as such.

    Extremely stupid question ahead------can one RENT golf shoes? I am not into the idea of buying a pair just for one day.

    Maybe I WILL get these Nikes and take off the kiltie after the 18th hole:

    Actually, if I may, this is one time (country club, business situation) where you probabably actually don't want to stand out fashion-wise. Being a golfer myself I would suggest not to wear anything flashy or J-Lindeberg-ish unless you are slim and under age 30. Otherwise you are best to blend in with the crowd. I suggest more traditional golf brands worn by the majority of PGA pros -- Ashworth, Cutter and Buck, Polo, or even Lacoste.

    go to a thrift store and get some bobby jones polos. made in italy of very nice cotton, and usually understated golfer logos.(the ones ive seen only have the golf prints inside the button placket)

    ACK! I'm just under thirty. How about someone just anesthetize me, dress me and give me smelling salts once I'm on the links. Maybe someone can control me by remote once I'm there.

    Better yet, maybe I could hire a body double. Takers?

    Clubs usually rent shoes for ~$10. Alternatively, what's your size? I might be able to find some spares for you to borrow for the day.

    It's best not to stick out in some situations. Jeans with a suit jacket are cool, but not when your best friend is getting married and everyone else around you is wearing a tuxedo.

    I'll second that. The fabric (mercerized cotton) and colors are nice, and the fit is decent if you size down. I got both of mine thrifting too.

    Just of note, Jesper's stuff is just about all, if not all, J Lindberg stuff. And, I would not look to Jesper as how to dress unless you can play.

    As stated previously, you may rather fit in and be able to lay low, than stand out and play a whack-f**k round.
