with a look at the Bonobos Golf Fall 2019 Collection.
Bonobos & The Rat Pack
There is no denying my love for Bonobos golf apparel. They’ve taken golf function and fashion to a new level. Earlier this summer I wrote, “In my imagination Ol’ Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra and the rest of the Rat Pack would’ve worn Bonobos while hanging out on the Las Vegas Strip prior to heading to the Sands Hotel to perform in the Copa Room. Now that is style.”
The Rat Pack were classically cool. Not just in their style but their persona. They were legendary performers who always seemed to have a good time under the bright lights of Vegas.

Their moniker came from “Den Mother,” Lauren Bacall, who after encountering her husband, Humphrey Bogart, and his friends return from a night in Las Vegas said, “You look like a goddam rat pack.”
Kings of Swing
Bonobos recently unveiled their Fall ’19 Golf lineup. The new release has further elevated the vintage-cool styling ethos that reminds me of the Vegas Strip in the 1950s and 1960s. Although we aren’t talking Sharkskin suits and fedoras hats–tilted just so, Bonobos has given us something equally cool for the course this season.
Bonobos has created golf apparel that can make you look like a playa on the course or in the lounge. Regardless of your size or build, they have the fit that is right for you. Shirts are offered in Slim, Standard, and extended sizes. Most pants come in Tailored, Slim, Athletic, Straight, and extended sizes.
Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr. were showbiz’s unrivaled kings of swing from the late Fifties until the mid-Sixties. Likewise, Bonobos’ latest lineup has them in contention as my golf fashion kings of swing for 2019.
