Irrational Dislike of Black Golf Gloves?

Recommended Posts

Dave H    15

I was watching the coverage today and every time I saw JB Holmes I was reminded of how I don't like black golf gloves. Now, I have nothing against black colored apparel; I have several pairs black shoes, I wear black pants most weekdays, I have black hats, and I have plenty of other black attire as well. I can't put my finger on why, but black golf gloves just look wrong to me.

Anyone else share this sentiment?

I'm with you! I have absolutely no reason why I don't like the black glove look, I just do. I think they look wrong, like they don't belong. I suppose some people feel the same way about Tiger's shoes....but those I like...go figure. ;-)

Let's see ... I bought a 3 pack of golf gloves at Costco, who knows, maybe 4 years ago now.  It had 2 white ones and one black one (no idea why) and I've gone through the 2 white ones and countless others I've bought since then ... and that black one is still in the package in my bag.  It's unused in perfect condition so I can't bring myself to throw it out, but I have no inkling to want to wear it.

I wear all black. Hat, shoes, shirt, pants and black gloves on both hands. Keeps me warm in the cold and makes people wonder how I can stand in the sun on a 95* Ohio summer day and not sweat. Hey I need every advantage I can get

I have a rational reason for not liking black coloured golf gloves. It is already so hot, sunny and humid in my city, I don't need black coloured gloves to make me even hotter and stickier. White gloves all the way!

Robbers, limo drivers, and and hitmen are the only professions that come to mind that rock black gloves. I don't think any golfer is trying to emulate the look of either of those 3, so I'll assume that's where the dislike comes from. Hell, even construction workers and ditch diggers wear some brown or orange gloves.

Do a google search for asher deathgrip - the wife got it online, just not sure which website

As a sidenote, you may want to order one size larger than normal - they run a little bit on the small side.

Hey don't be "Player-Hating" the black glove,,,lol!

I'm by no means a fashion type dresser but I do like coordinating the shoes/glove/belt/hat.

Dark clothes: I'll wear a black/navy hat, black belt, black shoes, black glove.

Light clothes: I'll wear white/tan hat, white shoes, white belt, white glove.

That's about where fashion ends for me, I have no plans of going to the all Orange outfits anytime soon!

I wear my white belts with black pants, as well as my lime green Loudmouths. I have a Lime green rubber belt I use with white pants.
