No, but to say they don't belong outside on a golf course does.

That's fair. I don't want to tell others how to dress. I just think the clothes look stupid and wouldn't personally wear them. And if I saw a friend wearing them anywhere I'd probably rib him about it. I don't know why you'd want to look like an "edgy golfer" but I wouldn't tell someone they're not allowed to.

Not dissimilar to some of the Bunker Mentality gear to be fair.

For me I tend to like contemporary golf gear but not "look at me! look at me!" golf gear. The tattoo stuff I wouldn't wear on course (coming from a guy with 4 tattoos, one of which is a next to belt, left to right backpiece. lol)

Yeah man, skulls have no place on a golf course. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to try out this Aldila RIP in my driver. Luckily I'm wearing my cummerbund and top hat, so no one will accuse me of being a hooligan.

This reminds me of when I coached soccer and girls would come in with "flash" shoes (bright pink, orange, etc.).  Our only advise was that you better bring the game to "earn" the shoes.  So my thought is that if you are wearing these to look edgy or cool then you better bring the game to match.  Rickie Fowler gets away with his style because he can earn a couple million $ on the PGA tour (and, presumably gets paid a boatload to wear them).

That said, if you just like the look go for it.  My preference tends to brighter colors so that's what I wear.  Whether I have the game to justify it is more up to the viewer rather than me.  And FYI I've had my eye on a pair of Loudmouth pants - but gotta knock a few more strokes off the handicap before I'll feel comfortable in them.  But would love to wear them to the office on casual Friday!

Are you serious?  You have to have a certain level of game to wear certain clothes or you have to "earn" wearing certain things?  Come on.

Amen!

I guess these clothing lines like Loudmouth and Tattoo golf should verify your handicap first, before your allowed to wear their clothing .....LOL! Honestly, I think some of it is cool. I personally don't care if you wear them or not, its a style. Some want to call it edgy some call it inappropriate. Who cares? I could call out some of the people I see who are dressed to the tee in "Tiger" Nike apparel or the un-athletic/overweight guy decked out in Under Armor? I am not trying to be a jerk or offend anyone, but there is no difference between any of these styles.......

I don't think there's a rule, but for me personally, I avoid dressing like Ricky Fowler or wearing loud shirts or pants.  IMO it's partially a fashion statement and part statement of your performance level.  I don't want to dress in a manner that my game can't back up but for anyone else I think they should wear what they want.

I would never wear this stuff, to a golf course or anywhere else.


Exactly my feeling.  I was never into the metal scene, but I get the feeling that lots of guys on this board would think of me as a dirty Cali hippy, so it's not that I want to only look like an investment banker or anything, but this stuff is just lame.  More lame and sophomoric than fun and hip.  Makes me think Ed Hardy on a lame 45 year old in a mid life crisis.  Oh wait, 45 year old in a mid-life crisis who'd wear Ed Hardy...  I think that entire demographic plays golf.  Maybe this is a genius business idea...

And I thought the same thing about the name.  Are you f---ing kidding me?  Did a 12 year old start this company?  Or did the founder just let his 12 year old come up with the name, no questions asked?

I would never wear the stuff.  But I find it funny how people are calling golf the "gentleman's game", and they should not dress in stuff like this.  How many "gentlemen" dressed nicely at the golf course have you seen get mad, throw a club, or curse out loud?  How many "gentlemen" have you seen drunk on the course and making an ass out of themselves?  I have seen plenty.

I don't like the skulls but I do like flashy, bright colors.  My favorite polos are red, orange, and a bright yellow.

Some of their apparel I like, some is just too much though. First saw them advertised on rock bottom golf for pretty cheap so I figured I get a couple. I went with a couple of the more tame shirts, and they look fine. Even got a few compliments on them. There are much more flashy outfits being worn on the golf course than shirts/hats from Tattogolf.

Wow.  I can't beleive some think what a person wears on the golf course is a statement of performance level.  Sorry, but that is about the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.  I have never thought, or been with anyone that said "I hope his game can back up those clothes"

If a person is complying to a dress code, if there is one, I could care less what they wear, and I certainly don't relate it to their ability.  I wouldn't wear the clothes linked in this thread, but they aren't bad.  I've seen plenty of "gentlemen" on the course with much worse 'fashion sense'.  As mentioned, fashion is a personal preference.  I'm sure there are plenty of folks that wouldn't wear what I wear.  I had no idea I wore my ability level to the course...

Not my style but I have no problem at all with people wearing whatever works for them as long as it's within the course regulations.  Now, my wife, if she was a golfer... that would be a different story.

    • Day 121.  While I plan to do more practice later today, I've already done some.  I hit a dozen full swings (two slow practice swings, focusing on a setup priority piece at setup and my better backswing whose picture changed recently).  6-iron, indoors, off a mat, into the net, real balls.  I also hit about two dozen chip shots (less than quarter) with my new-to-me 54 degree sand wedge.  I plan to do more work later, but I'm not sure I'll have time to post later, so I wanted to make sure I got the daily challenge part in at least. 
    • The only times I really get ticked about hitting a third shot is if I'm still closer to the tee box than I am the green.
    • Day 80 (6/24/21) -   Chipping and Putting Practice - spent about 20 minutes on the practice green with my 58* wedge spot chipping to a target (my folded golf towel) 2,3 and 4 paces from the edge of the green, then hit 3 chips each to various holes trying to get the ball to within 4 feet of the hole (which I did about half the time). Then practiced lag putting, 3 balls each to different holes trying to get within 4 feet of the hole, which I did around 2/3s of the time.  Range practice - 9-3 swings using my 7 and 8 iron and a noodle station; small bucket. Focused on keeping the club face facing the ground on the downswing and making good contact.
    • Best part about this pit stop is that they did more than the pit stops in the videos above. Not only did they change the tires, they also adjusted the front wing at the same time on both sides. All in under 2 seconds still.
    • If it was about skill, and if the green reading books made bad putters better than they otherwise would perform, we'd see the worst putters on tour being closer to the best putters because there is less of a skill gap between the two. Instead we see that the gap between the best and the worst at putting has only grown larger since the widespread introduction of green reading books. This means they have not had any measurable impact on a player's ability to putt well, because it isn't allowing the worst putters on tour to keep up with the best like you would see if some part of the game took less skill suddenly. I ignored the skill issue because claiming it's a matter of skill is patently ridiculous, and provably false. They can say whatever they like, doesn't mean a word of it is true.
