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!
Smart, sophisticated fashion on the golf course, golf shirts are by tradition usually a polo shirt design with button placket and rib knit collar. They can be worn on their own or matched with jackets and base layers.
Polo shirts have moved on from simply being items of clothing every golfer needs and are now packed with innovative technologies such as moisture-wicking and quick-drying capabilities. If you wear golf shirts that offer any kind of moisture-management in its construction then anytime you start perspiring the fabrics will wick away sweat before it gets the chance to come into contact with skin and quickly force it upwards through the materials where the outside air will evaporate it. This ensures you remain cool and dry regardless of the weather.
Other golf shirts can even offer warming effects, which keep your core body temperature levelled in cold, wintery conditions to avoid becoming too cold to perform on the greens.
Good golf brands to look out for if seeking moisture management in your polo shirts would be Nike Golf, which offer Dri-Fit Technology in most of their products, or Adidas, which utilise ClimaCool Technology. Moreover Adidas also offer ClimaWarm Technology for heat performance on chilly days.
There are plenty of materials on offer when looking for comfort in a shirt, from the extreme warmth when wearing cotton through to the cooling effects of polyester or nylon. Wool is also popular, though other materials are likely to give you better performances.
