9 Top Trends for Golf Clothes for Men
As new technologies and styles hit the market, trends on the course change. We’re here to make sure you feel confident and up-to-date when you’re looking for new attire, especially as golf styles evolve and expand beyond the green.
Golf Shirt Trends
The heart of any golfing outfit is the shirt. Choosing a polo that looks stylish, feels comfortable, and meets all your functional needs is an important decision. Keeping up with the latest advancements will help you make the best decision you can, so let’s take a look at some of the latest trends below.
1. Minimalist Features
Looking good is just more than an external factor. It can affect your personal confidence too.
Recently, minimizing the visible aspects of a shirt’s construction has become popular for its style and functional benefits. A slick, minimal look conveys professionalism and confidence, which is why our polos are styled with no top shoulder seam, French front plackets, and self collars with permanent stays. Fewer seams and simpler features mean there’s nothing to restrict your movement or comfort, so you’ll look and feel your best.
2. Anti-Odor Protection
Nothing’s worse than working hard to keep your shirts clean and fresh but still finding odor trapped in there over time. This occurs because most synthetic fabrics that have been treated with chemicals may provide moisture-wicking capabilities but don’t have the ability to release odors trapped within the fabric.
At Tasc Performance, our odor-resistant technology (thanks to powerful fabrics with natural odor protection) keeps this problem off your mind and out of your clothes, so you can play a round with peace of mind, knowing you look and smell fresh.
Moisture-wicking qualities are one of the most important features to look for when you want to bring your golf attire game to the next level. Moisture-wicking properties allow the fabric to pull sweat from your skin and quickly dry it off, meaning you stay cool and dry. Nothing is worse than a sweaty, sticky shirt in the middle of a game. Without effective moisture-wicking, your game is vulnerable to the hottest days, so this is one feature you do not want to pass up on.
While most synthetic tops have some form of moisture-wicking feature, it’s equally important to consider the environmental and production ethics behind the feature. Our fabrics are responsibly made and environmentally conscious, so you can feel confident about what you’re wearing on all fronts.
4. Breathability and Sun Protection
Breathability is a fabric’s capacity for airflow and moisture passage, both of which work to keep you cool, dry, and comfortable.
This is important not just for the comfort level you’ll feel but also for your performance. Staying dry and cool ensures your game won’t be impeded by overheating, sticking clothes that can limit your range of movement, or the mental distraction of discomfort. Your swing won’t suffer when you’re keeping cool in the right fabrics.
While breathability lets air and moisture pass through, it’s equally important to reduce the UV exposure that passes through your layers. Sun protection technology is becoming more prominent in modern clothing, and with good reason. Our golf polos and quarter zips come with built-in sun protection without the need for additional chemicals to keep you safer while you play.
Golf Short Trends
Choosing the right style of shorts for you may seem like a simple process, but there are a few key things to give close consideration to if you’re looking to maximize your comfort, style, and performance.
Breathability is an essential feature of every part of your course attire. Fabric and fit will both play an important role here, so be sure to look for breathable fabric, and don’t be afraid to try different sizes so you can find the right balance between a slim, stylish fit and an appropriate range of movement. A fit that’s not too tight is important in helping your lower body stay cool, even with the best fabrics.
6. Water Resistance
You probably won’t be jumping in the pond or running through the sprinklers, but life happens, even out on the course. Ensuring that your shorts are built to resist water, and more importantly, to dry rapidly can truly set apart decent shorts from excellent ones.
With the right shorts, water will dry from the fabric’s surface more quickly, so you stay dry and ready to play your best game yet.
Few parts of an outfit can hinder your game more than a pair of shorts that are too tight, stiff, and restrictive. Picking a pair with stretchability in the fabric will guarantee your range of movement is uninhibited by the shorts you wear. Look for our Cloud Chino Shorts with four-way stretch capabilities to make this feature a part of your arsenal.
Golf Clothes Beyond Golf
Versatility is an increasingly in-demand feature in the fashion world, and golf attire is no exception. The benefits of golf attire that you can take through other daily activities are numerous, not the least the benefit to your wallet and wardrobe space. It will also increase the depth of your closet options, adding new combinations, so you look fresh and stylish with ease.
8. Golf And Tennis
With similarities in both visual style and functional needs, the crossover between golf and tennis clothing is definitely on trend.
With the latest and most powerful activewear technologies being worked into golf attire, you can feel confident in taking your polos and shorts from the grassy greens to the greens of the court. The sleek, modern, minimal look of our latest polo styles works perfectly on the tennis court, too, making this partnership one to keep an eye (or two) on.
9. Work And On The Go Comfort
When your golf clothes look and feel as good as ours, you’ll have no second thoughts before wearing them out on the town or into the office on a casual day. You’ll be confident and comfortable in any situation with the latest golf attire -- not just keeping up with the trends, but possibly setting a few of your own amongst your friends and co-workers.
To wrap up, keeping in the know with the latest trends is a great way to maximize your comfort and confidence and support your performance. For all info on the latest technologies and styles, keep your eye on our blog. See you on the course!
