Now, I’m not much of a golfer (I spent my off-seasons training not golfing!) but the game’s dress code and traditional style has always fascinated me. Alex is also a beginner, and it was Wes’ first time on a course (which was hilarious, although he got noticeably better after a few holes). Needless to say, Towni was killing us – and probably a little embarrassed to be out there with us hacks.
We’re not golf experts, but we love any excuse to bend a dress code… Here’s our golf style.
1. Gentleman’s Game
When I think golf attire, I immediate think retro plaid pants. These windowpane suit trousers, made from 100% hemp by Ariston, were exactly what I had in mind.
The white athletic polo is a little roomier than I usually wear – a recommendation from Towni to keep an unrestricted range of motion.
For my choice in golf shoes I went with the leather/mesh Double Eagle with SLV sole.
Why? Because the mesh body makes them very comfortable, flexible, and allows them to breathe very well. Also, since I golf so rarely (although I plan to pick it up, mostly for business purposes) I can also wear these off the course as “chunky wingtips” – they’re great walking shoes.
I actually wore them with dark jeans around NYC before road-tripping across the country and two people asked me where they could buy them.
