I’m not sure this will draw a huge crowd, but I always pay attention to what the guys on tour are wearing. It seems like in the past few years, the golf fashion world has gone in two distinct directions:
The Nike Route - Monochrome or loud color schemes (like the mustard Jason Day pants at Torrey yesterday), unusual patterns and stripes, joggers, sneakers-like golf shoes,form fitting clothes and blade collars. Brands may include Nike, Puma, G/Fore, and Adidas.
The Classic Route - semi-traditional color schemes and patterns, saddle shoes, needlepoint belts, and slim-fit but not form fitting. Brands may include RLX, Travis Matthew, Penguin, FootJoy, Under Armour, Peter Millar.
Some of these (Puma, Adidas, Under Armour, Penguin) may fall somewhere in the middle
Personally I fall somwhere in the middle, but lean pretty hard towards the classic side. Justin Thomas’ tie and cardigan at the Open was an iconic moment, and I can’t believe the Nike truck lets Rory out of the house sometimes in his scripting.
So which camp are you in? What are some of your go to-brands or articles of clothing when you need to, as @MikeHoncho famously said, get a fit off? Are there any good blogs/write-ups on golf fashion that you follow? What accessories like belts, hats, or shoes do you rock? Who’s the best and worst dressed on tour, past and present?
