Why Golfers are Essential for Every Man’s Wardrobe

Much like jeans, there’s one item of clothing that will never date, men’s golfers. Golfers are also referred to as polo shirts. This indispensable apparel item has a long history which dates back to the 1950s. As their name implies, the shirts were originally worn by golfers. At that time a collared shirt was required as wearing formal attire even whilst playing golf, was expected. As new fabrics came to being, the stiff shirts gave way to clothing better suited to long days on the course, and set the stage for more casual clothing developments. Golfer shirts offered the ideal compromise, offering a smarter take on t-shirts. With their signature collar and short sleeve, the plain white shirts of the 50s and 60s gave way to bright, bold colours in the 70s. The 90s saw a rise in logo shirts, with brands like Polo and Lacoste featuring subtle logos on their shirts.


Today, men’s golfers come in a wide variety of colours and prints. Worn with jeans, chinos, shorts, and tailored slacks, the shirts are versatile, practical and timeless. They can be dressed up by wearing a jacket or down with a pair of bermudas – making them a versatile wardrobe must-have for every man.
