A few years ago, I designed my “Killer Golf Pant”.
This year’s Masters featured golf pants with a few updated features. The following are my thoughts for 2015 Summer Golf Fashion.
The key fashion element is the Tour Vee Notch on the bottom of the pant…a must! Here is my original pocket and bottom designs for my Killer Golf Pant. The Tour Vee has not changed!
A notch 2″ in length and 1.5″ in separation at the bottom is perfect!
While I still like the western pocket I advocated previously, without question a more conventional “1/4 top” or 1/2 top” were worn by all but a few.
My preference is the 1/4 top. The tour players are wearing a stock pant from the manufacturer, and accordingly don’t have any options.
All tour players are wearing a wider belt, with wider belt loops. The loops need to be 3/4″ and the loops need to be 2″ to accomodate today’s wider belts. Go with a woven…check out the PGA Tour Store for some $20 belt ideas! Under Armour has a great $19.99 woven!
White is a must! I also like some of today’s stretch cotton stripes. Here are two striped pants that will work great on your course!
The first pant above is a tan/rust cotton stretch stripe and the second pant is a navy/mint cotton stretch stripe. Ask your custom tailor for his/her cotton stretch fabric offerings. These pants can be made trimmer but still have great comfort!
Go with your favorite golf shirt in a solid. Under Armor has a great solid as do Nike and Adidas!
Here it will come down to personal taste. The younger tour players have gone with very slim fitting pants. My recomendation fir the average guy with a 19-22″ thigh is a 20″ knee and 17″ bottom. Have your custom tailor adjust from here for comfort and personal style.
Talk with your custom tailor about a few lightweight summer golf pant options!
Congrats Jordan Spieth!
