I've been rocking the white belt for quite a while now...I found one of my dad's from the 70's back in '02. Since I've always like wearing long pants on the course, and prefer black I thought the white belt really looked nice. Looks better now that I got the new Nike TW white belt, to go along with my collection of black pants and white red or black shirts. Also recently switched to wearing white shoes, so the white belt doesn't look quite as out of place as before.

Who the f cares what you wear. If you want to wear a white belt go for it. I just want to play golf. If my playing mates want to look good then go for it. It doesn't effect anyone. Why are you idiots fashion critics on the course. JUST PLAY. You can wear a nike shirt with adidas belt and callaway shoes. Who needs to match. unless you are sponsored
It's the same in all walks of life. If you go to work in a nice suit you feel more confident about yourself. If you go to the gym and lose 2-3 stone and build muscle your gonna feel more confident wearing a t-shirt or heading to the beach/pool.
I have a Adidas reversible belt Black/White got it a couple of months ago. I wear the black more often as there is a stigma with guys wearing a white belt. I've worn it on the white side maybe twice depends who I play with. Some guys might say look at this flash harry and if you play bad then they'll rip the piss behind your back. To hell with them it's a nice look with a black, grey or navy pants.
I'm the exact opposite, LOL. I love white belts and almost always wear them, even when I'm not playing golf. I just like the look. I like black belts too, but white belts just really stand out.
I like the white Nike hat, light blue shirt, white belt, gray pants/shorts, and shoes with at least some white in them.
Nancy Reagon taught me to "Just Say No" and that's exactly what I do to white belts. And I'm a fan of belts of all types of colors. I just can't do a white one. I think its because so many golfers and pros do wear them. I don't agree with "golf style" to begin with. Although Nike has been making some nice shirts lately. That's beyond the point. Anyway, No. I'll allow white in the belt, but not a full solid white...
I think if you're in your 20's or younger white belts are fashionable today. Over 30 it can be a bit iffy depending on your look and waist size. I personally have only worn a white belt when I started taking martial arts classes, but I really don't care what other golfers wear.
Hey easy now on the over 30 crowd!!! I am almost 40 and I sport the white belt on many occasions, I actually have two of them! I do my best to look presentable on the golf course, if I suck on any given day, I want to look good doing it!
White belt, get over it. That's nothing.
I was at an event with another family. Part of the family was a very attractive 15 year girl. At the event was a guy around 20 who had his eyebrows plucked.
I have a strong opinion on that. I asked her what she thought of it and she paused for a long time and said it can look good.
THAT is a problem. Would you notice a white belt if you son appeared with plucked eyebrows?
I have 3 pair of white shorts, solid, black checks & blue stripes.
I think a white belt looks far better thana black or brown...
when i grew up, I was taught to wear a belt that matched my shoes......and I still think that is appropriate.
The only place I wear white shoes is on the golf course, so a white belt is appropriate, especially when your shorts are white.
Forgive my Ignorance, but I've read on some forums and saw that many people are infatuated with custom flashy belts ect. Why is this? Is there some underlying rebellion against course dress codes ect? I understand allowing your personality to show but was just curious if there was more to it.
Id like to know the ages of the people who say it's lame, and I would be shocked if I find someone that's under 30 that finds the white belt lame. It's the cool thing right now, everyone is wearing a white belt most of the time, and yes, we're all trying to look like Ricky Fowler (not me, but I haven't seen so many Puma shirts and hats on the course since he's been around). I am a size 40 waist, and if you want to judge me because of the color belt I wear, then you're less of a man to me.
