When it comes to on-course style most golfers can’t keep off the bogey train. Joggers, Jordans and (the hot topic of) Hoodies have added an interesting dynamic to fairway fashion.
With an over indulgence of fruitful colours and the ultimate influence of streetwear we’ve seen rebellion against more traditional norms in recent years. While we’re all for growing the game, we lean more towards golf’s timeless sartorial style.
So how do we think golfers should dress? For the most part, KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid).
Like a Japanese ‘salaryman’, focusing on the fit more than the flare will always have you winning your match before you step on the first tee.

Donning the British luxury fashion house Burberry early in his career before moving to Japanese retail giant UNIQLO, Adam Scott’s golf attire always exudes class.
Paired with his Footjoys, the Australian’s wardrobe is our modern favourite and makes our top 4 without hesitation.
It’s no secret we love Seve. His trademark navy epitomises his classic take on fashion, often juxtaposed with his humorous personality. It’s ironic that Seve once said “I don’t want people to watch the way I dress, I want people to watch the way I play.” Yet here we are, paying homage 35 years later.
Calvin Peete, the most successful African American golfer to play the game prior to Tiger, with 12 PGA tour wins and 2 Ryder Cup appearances.
Peete was most known for his self-taught swing, his love for a Rolls Royce and never missing a fairway (off the tee and with his wardrobe).
He’s been called the King; golf’s biggest stud and the best dressed golfer to ever swing a club. We feel we’d be a little out of line to disagree with any of this.
A perpetual cardigan wearer and lover of yellow & navy, Arnold Palmer was as cool as they come.
