The 44 Best Golf Clothing Brands Prove the Sport Is Genuinely Stylish Now

Golf style has inspired its fair share of cringe through the years. Ironically, the sport with the strictest dress code is the one that’s failed to nail fit, historically speaking. But recently, especially in the past couple of years, golf style has been making its long-awaited comeback (or, depending on your perspective, arrival). Sure, the OGs are still making clothes geared more toward performance than style, but with an influx of new brands like Malbon and Eastside Golf alongside household names like Adidas, Nike, and Polo Ralph Lauren hitting heavy in the golf space, the future looks mighty bright.

All the while, the socially distanced sport has been thriving throughout the pandemic. Play has increased at a rate not seen since the late ’90s, when a guy named Tiger took the golf world by storm. So, if you’re new to the game, and you care about the way you look, check out the 44 brands below and start building out your golf wardrobe with the same consideration you do your non-golf wardrobe. You might, after all, be wearing it a lot in the foreseeable future.
