At the risk of alienating myself....... - Page 2

post #19 of 31

Nick Watney looks like Jim Carrey from "Dumb and Dumber" with the clothes his new sponsor (Nike) makes him wear. Take a look at the cover of the latest issue of Golf magazine and you'll see what I mean. Classy to ghetto in 1 year....

I like to stick to dri-fit or similar type polo shirts. As for style, I really try to stay away from what I consider to be trends. I don't spend money on clothes that I feel there is a reasonable chance that I will look at myself in a picture in a few years and wonder what I was thinking. Weird funky patterns like that are much more likely to go out of fashion in short periods of time. Solid color or stripe shirts that aren't overly loud will have more staying power, in my mind.

I disagree slightly.  

 

I DO feel most golf fashion is hideous.  I buy relatively expensive golf gear, but my selection is limited to pretty conservative patterns/colors.  Most of the shirts I have are variations of dark blue, white and black.  The reasons I stick to these colors is because all of the other ones appear to be neon/pastel color combinations that are hideous to me.  I wouldn't even consider them outside of a golf course.  One of my favorite navy blue shirts has neon green trim/lining.  WTF?

 

Anyway, the reason I disagree (slightly), is because these color combinations started a few years before Rickie Fowler.  I think Fowler's impact has mostly been on headgear and brightly colored footwear.  Perhaps even color-coordinated clubs.  But the ugly shirts/shorts/pants thing has been around for a while.

I don't think it's hideous. Would I wear it? Probably not. I, like a few of the other guys have stated, tend to be more conservative in my clothing selections. I wouldn't go out and buy any of Rickie Fowler's outfits, but if Puma wanted to pay me to wear them, I'll gladly put on that bright orange or green outfit. As for the flat brim hats, no thanks. Reminds me too much of my Little League days when the hats were huge and the brims were made of something like drywall that refused to bend. 

 

But I will say that, after watching some of these "Greatest Rounds Ever Played" on Golf Channel, I think the fashion has improved. Watching what some of these guys were wearing just 10 years ago is pretty funny. Was never a fan of the super baggy pants and shirts.

Mostly solids for me.  I know that the tour guys are endorsing what they wear but since TGC shows the week's work of clothing to be worn during the week of a Major for say, a Nike guy like Rory McIlroy, it looks like they don't even get to dress themselves anymore.  Most of today's patterned golf clothing is stuff that I would never buy.  Although I'm not his biggest fan the Tiger Woods collection is simple enough to appeal to my sense of style.

I think it's funny when a 25 year old me walks into the pro shop for check in and i'm wearing conservative khaki shorts, a solid FJ shirt, and white/tan FJ shoes with a tan belt and a sun hat and I'm standing behind a 55 year old guy in bright yellow shorts, lime green shirt, and white shoes/belt topped off with a flat bill puma hat.  Makes me lose my shit.

I've never seen that myself but I might laugh too.

There is still a lot of good looking apparel out there that appeals to me.  Those pictured...I personally don't like them but many do.  Most are younger than me.  I am a bit more into classic styling myself.  Maybe that's because I'm becoming a classic...or is that just OLD. a1_smile.gif  Hmmm, I can't remember.

Usually stick to solid colored clothes as far as Golf goes. I'm part of that "younger generation with no fashion sense" so some of the ones brought up seem nice to me. Guess it's just my blatant lack of fashion sense though e3_rolleyes.gif
