2012 Golf Style Trends: Polo Shirt Edition

Did you know that your golf handicap extends into your closet?  If you look good, you’ll play better, or so the theory goes.

Apparel experts contend that you achieve peak performance when you’re dry and comfortable, odor-free and looking good.

Nowadays, your golf shirt has to do more than just look good — it should wick-away moisture, protect your skin from UV rays and kill bacteria, maybe all at the same time. Here to help you keep your mind on the game, we’ve hand-picked some sharp styles for a successful day on the links. The colours are bright and the cuts are trim.

“The trend is towards slimmer fits and technical fabrics,” says Jeremy Miller, director of sales for J.Lindeberg.  The Swedish-based brand is sported by some of golf’s most stylish players like Camillo Villegas, known as much for his attire as his long-drive.  “Bold stripes are a signature for the brand this season.  We’ve also taken inspiration from our tailored collection and introduced a spread collar on some of our polos.  More common on dress shirts, this lends a subtle sophistication and fashion-forward look on the course.”

The silhouette harkens back to the ‘60s when tight-legged pants and knit shirts were the quintessential style — updated to incorporate the latest technical innovations.

Even if you’re not playing for a million bucks, you can still look like it.  Take a cue from the pros, with looks that play well on or off the course.

  1. J.Lindeberg makes some pretty sick gear.  I remember when Jesper Parnevik first exploded on the scene wearing some pretty crazy combinations and some even tighter pants.
