Quintessentially Golf Clothing 2000s-2018

September 27th, 2018 by Simon Jacobs

Nowadays, most golf clothing is designed to be functional, the style elements for most are of secondary importance. Athleticism and performance rules the way as golf wear becomes a fertile ground for technical innovation.

Golf clothing is now endowed with increasingly exotic technical features: shirts with stretch panels and fabrics that block sunlight; trousers with vents and zippered pockets; and moisture proofing materials that gives a new meaning to the term “no sweat.” The top players such as Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, keep the look simple with darker hues and full cut armholes for a free swing.

Sportswear brands are designing their performance wear to be just as fashionable as the rest of the clothes we wear. Whether you’re a true athlete or someone simply looking for a versatile clothes, athletic wear is where you should look.

Quintessentially Golf 1980s-2000s

September 26th, 2018 by Simon Jacobs

As sponsorship became a norm in modern golf, golfers ditched the plain garments and stepped into designer clothing. No one embodied this change more than Greg Norman, who left his mark with big hats, bold colours, and his own “Shark” clothing line.

The Pringle sweater was synonymous with eighties golf. Sir Nick Faldo famously sported a Pringle garment when winning the Claret Jug in 1987 (pictured), but the knitwear was also a popular choice of the likes of Terry Wogan and Ronnie Corbett. As the popularity of golf grew through the 1990s, golf pros often wore more logos as they gained sponsorship.

Golfers colourful clothing was dictated by brand standards and emblazoned logos. Golfers were toning down their use of bright colours and instead stuck to darker shades. This was due to well-respected clothing labels such as Nike, Adidas and Calloway taking precedence in the golfing market. The quirky edge that had somewhat defined a decade of fashion was disintegrating as blacks, greys and white were popular on the course.

Matching shades of grey is arguably the most important aspect to consider when sporting the grey look. Instead of creating outfits composed of a single block shade of grey, mens fashion is getting increasingly creative, coupling up darker and lighter shades to great effect.

Quintessentially Golf 1960s-1980s

September 26th, 2018 by Simon Jacobs

Today’s golfers, such as Ian Poulter or Rickie Fowler may think they are the pinnacle of fashion, but on reflection, the swinging sixties was the birth of outrageous colours. Trendsetters on the links would be seen sporting a crew-neck tee’s with lurid v-neck sweaters.

The colour phenomenon continued into the 1970s as golfers combined a mixture of bold colours and absurd patterns. Golfers embraced brightly clashing sweaters and plaid trousers of purple, green, brown and orange.

As in the office, men wore turtlenecks and mock turtlenecks on the course. The hound’s-tooth pattern became a staple of 70’s golf wear, on both pants and shirts. The 1970’s was inundated with this weird but wonderful fashion, that lingered into the 1980s.

Adding a pop of colour here and there makes you stand out from drably dressed crowd and can give you an edge when trying to make an impression. One bold piece of colour can be incredibly eye-catching. However, it’s important to stick with one bold colour per outfit, in order to prevent the coloured pieces competing with one another.

How to Quintessentially Dress for Golf 1940s – 1960s

September 25th, 2018 by Simon Jacobs

By the time of the 1947 Ryder Cup, common sense had prevailed as golfers began to realise that to dress for golf, the tradition of wearing their trousers tucked into their socks was no longer vogue. Instead, a relaxed fashion was introduced, with casual attire worn on the golf course.

Inspiration spread from Arnold Palmer, who would dress for golf in a short sleeve polo shirt and khaki trousers. The emergence of Arnold Palmer changed the game’s look. ‘The King’ would play in a cotton shirt, lightweight tan trousers and oxford shoes, to emphasise his athleticism. Other golfers like Ben Hogan also set the tone for golf fashion in the 1950s as the casual trend continued and knitted polos became the norm on the course

Can you dress for golf in the winter? – Roll neck jumpers are the best when it comes to comfort and design in winter. Worn casually or formally, there’s no way they won’t work this season.

Mr Q Selects

The caine black silk & cashmere roll neck is luxuriously soft and lightweight. With good insulation quality but extremely warm, the silk & cashmere roll neck is perfect for the ever-changing autumn season.  The garment is lightweight enough to layer with smart tailoring under a suit, or with a blazer.

Quintessentially Golf – Pre 1940s

September 24th, 2018 by Simon Jacobs

Much like the game itself, men’s fashion in golf has certainly evolved in the past century. With the start of the 2018 Ryder Cup just 4 days away, we look at the ever-changing fashion of mens golf. Prepare yourself for bulky tweeds, fluorescent trousers and everything in-between.

According to a Vanity Fair advertisement in 1918, the well-dressed golfer would wear a single-breasted tweed jacket with a waist coat and “knickers” (similar to the English knee breeches often worn in court dress). Bulky tweeds provided a warm, thorn-proof shield against the elements, but were hardly conducive to a powerful shoulder turn. Cotton long “puttees” or stockings, a golf cap and golf shoes completed the outfit.

However, social conventions quickly began to change as golfers deserted the heavy tweed jacket. Instead, on cool crisp mornings, golfers would wear knitted cardigans and V-neck sweaters. This was largely due to Edward, Prince of Wales, who influenced golf fashion with his dapper personal style, especially in his choice of traditional Fair Isle patterned knit pullover sweaters and argyle socks. By the 1930s, golfers abandoned their knickers in favour of flannel trousers, and the colossal tweed jackets were replaced by V-neck sweaters, which allowed for an easier swing.

Wearing a v neck sweater with a dress shirt underneath will add an extra touch of class to your look. The important thing to consider when wearing a dress shirt under a V-neck is to make sure the shirt and sweater go well together, and that the colour coordination corresponds.
