    Who makes the best Golf Shirt?

    I wear a lot of golf shirts to work, and some are simply way better than others. I need to do some shopping so that on Member/Guest week, my partner and I can look like a couple of d-bags. I'm interested in hearing who you think makes the nicest ones. I'm definitely partial to ones that are moisture wicking, but that look very nice... not like a workout shirt. No colors that will make me look like that tool Fowler either. This is a gentleman's game.

    And if you go the uniform route, make sure one of your days is a "black out." All black everything. Very intimidating.

    I didn't think Johnny Cash was a golfer. I'll pass. 27 holes in the hot Virginia sun in all black would suck.

    Fine, winning isn't important to you. Just pick up any old shirt and go get your asss kicked.
    Wearing black in the sun is exactly the type of intimidation I'm talking about. Your opponents will know exactly how dedicated you are.
    But that doesn't sound like something you're ready to take on. You probably won't even coordinate belts, shorts, socks, shoes, or gloves. Why don't you just save some cash and get some Slazenger sh!t off the clearance rack in Dicks?

    I have a Greg Norman shirt and it is by far the best shirt I've owned in terms of fit, feel and wear. I also like the Nike shirts but they are pretty expensive. Addidas makes good shirts. Ashworth are horrible.

    Costco Kirkland golf shirts appear to have more material in them than the expensive brands and they cost $14.99.

    Its not the brand thats important, its the material. Aslong as its 100% poly you will look good. Poly is light and comfortable and doesnt fade.

    Sorry HB, but after you posted the Travis Matthews ****, I can no longer respect your opinion in this matter. Those shirts are downright ugly.

    FD - I have a bunch of the Nike shirts and like them, but looking for something a little higher quality. The Foot Joy shirts actually look pretty nice, as do the Fairway and Greene. Liking these.

    In Oz Oakley an CK shirts are fairly decent. FD is correct about Greg Norman shirts being good too. Grreat shirts for the price.

    When I play golf, I just want to wear nice and comfortable T-shirts, other than that it's not important to me. However, I have several Greg Norman T-Shirts that I bought in Pocono when one of the outlet stores closed out. I think I paid $12 each and I bought 10 with different colors

    Typical science nerd. No sense of style or class. If there cosmic justice, golfers without a collared shirt would get a hot poker up the ass as they top their ball just past the red tees.

    I don't believe i've ever played golf in a shirt without a collar. Heck, it took me years to feel comfortable wearing shorts on the golf course after caddying at Merion.

    One shoud always wear a collared shirt when playing golf. Workout shorts, bathing suits, jean shorts and t-shirts are for hackers and choppers who play after 3pm at the local goat track and pay $12 for twilight rates.

    Collared polos are a standard but mock collar tshirts are ok. Tiger wears them so that makes them legit.

    You must all be too young to remember one of the world's best players who wore all black for years earning him the nickname "The Black Knight". Gary Player.

    Anyway, it strikes me that concern about golf apparel if one is not paid to wear it is. rather gay, and not in the sense that the word means "happy" and "carefree".

    I have never bought a golf shirt in my life. All I have ever owned and worn have been given to me as gifts by well-meaning friends and relatives. I much prefer 100% cotton in at least one size too large for me since they tend to shrink in dryers and I hate having to pull up a left sleeve in order to hit a golf ball. My favorite golf shirt color is red because I compete best when wearing a red shirt.

    I have one Tiger Woods Nike golf shirt that was given to me by my in-laws maybe 12 years ago. I wore it twice. It is, unfortunately, gray and not red.

    My absolute favorite golf shirt is dark blue of the best quality and has the seal of the President of the United States and an embroidered script below the seal indicating the commemoration of the first inauguration of George Walker Bush. It was given to me by a good friend who had a White House press pass. He also gave me two Camp David presidential ball caps that I have yet to wear.
    Mostly Taylormade clubs now except for two Ping I25 hybrids, Mizuno 54 & Callaway 56 wedges.

    Right on. My favorite shirts are the PGA Tour shirts. The polyester doesn't shrink, doesn't fade, and they're cheap as hell. Looks like new after 3 years of wear.

    To that point, why even bother with a shirt?

    I have been very satisfied with Under Armour Shirts. I have about 8 and they are all comfortable and well made. They also come in a variety of interesting colours. I sometimes dress like a mad parrot when mood takes me but on the whole I am pretty conservative.

    I must have 10 feet of golf shirts! That is how much hanging room they take tightly packed in my closet. I only like the newer kind that "wick," so I need to more aggressively weed out the ones I never wear.

    My wife drops by resale shops on her travels in N. County and up in LA, Costa Mesa, San Clemente, etc. That is "housewives of Orange County" country. She gets fantastic buys on EXPENSIVE women's clothes that I would have a fit if she paid full retail in Nordstroms or Neimans. But she also often brings home NEW Greg Normans and US Open shirts she pays $5 for. I am sure I have a dozen unworn shirts!

    But I work on the range and do my PT in Morgan Run tennis tournament shirts, collared, cotton, white with a club logo. I buy stacks of them for a few bucks each after their annual super senior tournament.

    Going to Palm Springs Thursday. Will stay downtown where we can walk to a dozen good restaurants. This is also "restaurant week" and a street fair will be going on. Friday we'll play Indian Wells CC, also owned by the company that owns my home club, so we play free. Beautiful big clubhouses, elegant dining, etc. Same with Mission Hills over there. No time to play both this trip. Driving back Saturday and playing "The Crossings" Sunday morning.

    I expect to score because after my recent series of lessons and complete swing change, I hit most fairways and greens. Golf is fun from the short grass.

    Yeah, I bet you go to those senior singles bars in Palm Springs like The Nest. Wearing your silk shirts and gold chains.

    Yeah, right! Don't own no chains nor silk shirts. I might wear a baseball cap and certainly will be in shorts and wearing boat shoes. I will be wearing a black Garmin GPS watch, NOT a Rolex. I am 71 and Teresa is 66. Typical afternoon after golfing we have a few cocktails around town and then migrate to the Falls on the Plaza. Usually get the corner table on the balcony. If you're there, walk over and stick out your hand! Class is class.

    See you there!

    I generally wear a wifebeater with demin cut-offs and work boots. Although I do usually keep a change of boots in the pickup.

    I store the cup with my teeth in one boot, and my .50AE Desert Eagle in the other, along with my magnum condoms. I've got a Rick Perry sticker on my back bumper and my new GigaGolf Z4 clubs back in the pickup bed.

    I think I'll crack open a can of Coors Light and drive on down to Bob's Country Bunker. The Good Ole Boys are playing tonight.

    Palm Springs is a good place at night. Palm Desert is even better for restaurants. My friends and I accidentally walked into this bar called The Nest one night and it was a 55 and older crowd. Most in their 70's. We actually had a great time and I got up and sang an Elvis tune.

    24putts... speak for yourself... I can guaranty you that I dress a lot nicer on golf course than you... Trust me on this. I make 6 figures and I can afford it.

    This is true and is one of the reasons the NZ All Blacks are the greatest rugby team on the planet and the most dominant team in all of sport. The opposition take one look at the blackness of the All Black jersey and are beaten before a ball is kicked.

    The Wallabies on the other hand wear yellow ...
    I chose the road less traveled.

    Now where the f#ck am I?

    Wofat, didn't realize you were in Virginia. We may have to tee it up some day.

    Cotton shirts are always going to look better. I hate to say it, but DLturd has the best clothing line. I don't think I've ever had a polo shirt go bad...I have had some for over a decade, and they still look great. The only problem is they don't wick away moisture and will get wet when its hot.

    Wicker shirts are functional on the course, but they don't look that great for work attire. They will also accentuate your moobs if you are one of those busty males. Dudes with moobs should always wear an undershirt. I like the Nike line the best.

    I don't know how any of you guys still wear all cotton shirts while playing golf. The new lightweight shirts by Nike, Addidas and Puma are lighter, more flexible and much cooler than their all-cotton counterparts. My work is business-casual so I'll usually wear a button down dress shirt and slacks but sometimes I'll wear a polo shirt. I bought three cotton polo shirts, Calvin Klein, from Costco for $16.99 each and they are extremely comfortable and light.

    The worst shirts to wear when playing golf are the Lacoste-type with the little alligator. Those are heavy and uncomfortable against your skin when swinging.

    One thing I will never do is buy those matching addidas pants and belt to wear with the shirt.

I bought three cotton polo shirts, Calvin Klein, from Costco for $16.99 each and they are extremely comfortable and light.

    The worst shirts to wear when playing golf are the Lacoste-type with the little alligator. Those are heavy and uncomfortable against your skin when swinging.

    One thing I will never do is buy those matching addidas pants and belt to wear with the shirt.
    Calvin Klein will last maybe a year. Why not buy a Ralph Lauren, and have it last 10+ years.

    I've owned Ralph Lauren polo shirts and they don't last 10 years. All shirts fade over time and become frayed at the edges. They all seem to develop a hole right at the bottom of the V at the center of your chest. I would agree that Polo shirts last longer but not by much. I've had the Calvin Klein shirts for two years now and they still look great on my chisiled frame.

    I don't remember having that fancy delete post option in the past.

In the lead up to the RWC the past three years all the losses were tolerated because it was assumed the 'master coach' had a 'master plan' to win the Cup and all the losses were part of the building process. That turned out to be nothing but smoke and mirrors. Surely further failure, especially against minnows like Scotland can't be tolerated any longer. Time to appoint an Aussie who will instill some Aussie pride.
    I chose the road less traveled.

    Now where the f#ck am I?

    What is all this "10 year" and "2 year" crap? Golf fashion lasts exactly 1 year. If your golf shirt is over a year old, you are not welcome in my foursome.

No colors that will make me look like that tool Fowler either. This is a gentleman's game.

    Monterey Club is my favorite this year, though I picked up a Nike dri-fit I like, monogrammed of course
    Last year I enjoyed Page and Tuttle, but the 60% Pima cotton 40% polyester is fading. Under armour is one of my favorite in cooler temps, it's quite heavy, plus they get the length right.
    Adidas climalite is the best cool weather fitting shirt I've owned.
    I caught myself looking at teoma, Clint Eastwoods line. Picked up one last year. Have no Idea were its at. The maid probably fukked it up.

    Fads last 1 year...Fashion lasts forever. Sure your zigzag stripes, white belt, and pastel colored pants are going to go out of style rather quickly...its debatable if they ever actually were in style. A classically designed single colored shirt is going to look good no matter what the era...horizontal stripes have good longevity also. Don't become a victim of commercialization.

    That's old man talk. You probably buy your golf shoes for comfort and sensibility instead of style. You'd be laughed off the course if you showed up in khakis, a solid color polo and black belt.

    Tell your spies I don't like being spied on. As a matter of fact, I did just recently buy some new golf shoes...The Footjoy Contour Casual. Sure, they are quite sensible and comfortable, but I happen to think they are stylish too. Although, the cashier boy did tell me he thought those shoes felt awesome, but he didn't think he could pull off the look...Punkazz teenagerz...

    I just did a mental inventory.
    I play golf in no more than 5 shirts. They are all either too weird to wear to work and made out of that wicking material. 2 are Nike, 2 are Puma, one is Travis Mathew. I have a J. Lindeberg shirt that I never wear, even too weird for me.
    I have 3 pair of shorts in the regular rotation, none of which are khaki.
    I have 2 golf-specific belts. Ol' whitey and this black belt with a couple buckles (one is skull).
    I have a 6 pair of shoes in my locker, yet only wear 3 regularly. I should get rid of the other 3.

    They say the best thing you can do to reduce stress and look better is to own less clothing but have the clothing you do own look really good.

    If you think about it, there's no reason to have more than 3 pairs of jeans, 3 chinos and maybe four or five golf shirts. I tend to ignore some of the golf shirts and should just get rid of them. I also have too many pairs of golf shoes. One pair just sits on a shelf in my garage because I don't like the way they look. I should just toss them.

    I have 2 nice pair of jeans. One OK pair that I'll wear around the house. One beat to hell pair that I do yard work in.
    I really need to get rid of some of my golf shirts. I literally have 2 dozen hanging in my closet. They aren't necessarily bad, just don't crack the top 5, and I have never played more than 5 rounds of golf in between laundry cycles.

    Are you talking about soft-spikeless shoes? All of my golf shoes have soft spikes. I actually have 4 pair of shoes that see action, although my white Nikes are probably relegated to the B team
    2010 black Nike TW's
    2012 white Ecco Biom - best golf shoe ever created
    2011 white with greyish blue trim FJ Icon wingtips - pimp shoes
    2010 white Nike Tour Premium - great shoe, just not as great as the Ecco's.

    In Oz those heavy cotton shirts like the Le Coste are handy in Oz during the winter months as our winters are farily mild, but I agree in sumer they suck arse. From the beginning of Spring to the end of Autumn (Fall for you American dumb arses) I'm a 100% polyester man all the way. They are light, breathable and never stretch or fade. They basically last until you rip a hole in them, and they are pretty tough so that doesnt happe often. I have some poly shirts 2-3 years old that look as good as the day they were bought.

    Yeah spikeless. Like the shoes Freddie C. wears. I think they might take 3 strokes off your game...not a full 4, but 3 is good for a shoe.

    I don't trust brand name T-shirt on eBay... could be faked... I bought beautiful/ real Greg Norman T- shirt in Pocono last yr when the store lost its lease (Reebok ? owns the space now it's being used for Ashworth instead of Greg Norman clothing). My IBM friend went to Taiwan/ Singapore for business trip and bought me a beautiful Titlest golf shirt (maybe $15 USD and I am not surprised if it's faked)

    Agree about the polyester. I have a couple of shirts for over two years and not a sign of fading. Most of the heavier cotton shirts I've had are fukced after one summer.

    Now where the f#ck am I?

    +1

    All of my cotton shirts look like a homeless man lived in them after a full summer of wear. I've had some of my poly and poly blend shirts now for 2 or 3 seasons and they still look great.

    ?? How is it science and what is being lied about? The article states the various properties of cotton and poly and basically states that you're killing the earth if you're not growing or making it yourself.
