Remember When Golfers Were Actually Stylish?

We do. In honor of day one of golf’s most important event, a look back at the superior style of two 60s era golf greats. Golf clothes are, for the most part, deeply unstylish. These days, the polos and trousers that have become the sport’s uniform are made as performance pieces (wicking fabrics, extra pocket storage), which might help with a guy’s swing or sweat situation but rarely cut a sharp silhouette. Polos sleeves tend to hit at the elbow, pants kick around with the abandon of a car dealership wind dancer. Basically, today’s golf uniform is locked in an identity struggle between legit athletic wear and country gentleman leisure gear. See more at GQ.
