Golf shoes used to all be about formality, fold-down, frill-edged tongues to cover unsightly laces, and inch-long, ground piercing spikes designed to keep you well rooted to the turf below, but a change has come in this field and it has definitely been for the better!
Golf Punk’s Pocket Guide to Polo Shirts
Polo shirts are arguably the essential item on any golfer or aspiring golfer’s shopping list.
Choosing the right polo selection can help your game no end and can be the difference between you catching the eye out on the course and standing out like a sore thumb for all the wrong reasons.
When making sure you pack your wardrobe with great polos it is important to consider the following factors: fabric, collar, colour and fit.
In terms of fabric you have to try and strike the balance between comfort, convenience and style and modern fabrics such as Charged Cotton and CoolMax are the best options when trying to cater to both needs.
Brands like Under Armour and J. Lindeberg are leading the trend in terms of the use of these fabrics so it is well worth browsing through their ranges.
If you’re more concerned with winning style points however, then it is crucial to pick a polo which fits great and sets you apart from the crowd in terms of fashion awareness and shows off your physique.
Lyle and Scott’s Tipped polo features a sharp and suave button down collar which looks great as does Galvin Green’s Max Tour Edition polo which comes with a structured, pointed collar.
The last thing to get right with your polo selection, and it is perhaps the most important factor of all, is choosing the right colour.
Colour choice is very much open to interpretation with Puma leading the way in producing and promoting bold and brash colours, including their bright orange polos which Rickie Fowler can’t live without.
However, if you fancy something a little less ‘in your face’ then there is still nothing wrong with opting for a sharp and classic black or white option, another category that Under Armour deliver strongly in.
