I'm a bit OCD when it comes to matching brands. I've played Cobra clubs for awhile now, and since Puma bought Cobra, I've been wearing Puma stuff too. Everytime I go out to the course I hear Rickie Fowler comments. I refuse to buy orange stuff for that very reason. I can't wait until Rickie Fowler fades off so I can not be so self concious of wearing Puma. Its comfortable and looks good, but I'm sick of the b.s. Does this kinda stuff happen everywhere or just with my group of a-hole friends at my home course?
Why is everyone hatin' on my Puma gear?

I can't wear a neon green suit to work everyday. Might as well brighten it up while on the course.
Go for it the PUMA gear is nice. I don't wear it on the course but I am a frequent shopper at the PUMA store for street clothes. I would buy it but it's not something the pro shops at my fave courses stock. I like to support the courses by spending money and I don't mind sporting the course logos so I buy what they have on the shelves. Mostly Nike, FJ, Under Armour and the old fart brands, Antigua, Sunice and Page and Tuttle. I do play the Cobra AMP fairways and hybrids. I don't care what anyone thinks about that. Haven't found anything better, for me.
I own some Puma stuff and it is very nice gear but I do understand why some people get ribbed a little bit. A lot of the kids at my CC dress exactly like Fowler with the all one color look down to the spikes but no big deal it's just who these kids look up to as a golfer. There is however one guy in his mid 30s who also dresses just like Fowler and I mean to the point that he wears the all orange every sunday. He gets a lot of looks and there is nothing wrong with dressing however you want but if you are going to wear all orange you're asking for it a little bit.
Puma has some nice stuff. I have a black pair of the Puma Cell Fusions, they are very comfortable. Guys like me are too self conscious to wear the bright colors but it looks great on guys that can pull it off.
Golf buddies are always going to bust your chops (that's what we do) so might as well look good. When one of my friends got an RBZ driver the guys started busting him on that. Just laugh it off, it's part of the game as long, as long as it doesn't go too far.
Man i wear Puma all the time, and since im younger a lot of middle aged people especially like to give me hell and say "hey look this kid wants to be rickie fowler" which usually leads me to pick on them for wearing short shorts and golf shirts that come down to their elbow. Nothin but good trash-talking I honestly enjoy it. If they talk smack just give it right back to them.
In this day and age no one cares what you wear, your buddy's are there to give you a hard time, that what they do. A head to toe orange Popsicle may be a bit to much.
At 50 if I wore that stuff my kids would call me a creeper!
I just hate it when you see guys sporting the Daisy Duke shorts!
