Golf apparel has never looked better. While the beauty of the game has stayed the same, fashions have experienced a reinvention that marries function with style.
The traditional players uniform of heavy knit polo shirts, chinos and clunky golf shoes are a thing of the past, in favour of attire that’s both comfortable and helps you keep cool in warmer temperatures.
We’ve rounded up some of our favourite polos so your style points stay high, while your handicap stays low.
Made with Silverescent® technology, this performance polo is made from the same material as your favourite work-out gear that prevents odour causing bacteria.
