Back by popular demand is the Outfit of the Week. Since the early days of GolfThreads, I’ve been posting my on-course outfits to social media. Looking back on those first outfit grids from 2013, they were a bit raw. Seven years later, they have evolved to something slightly better.
In addition to posting the Outfit of the Week to social media, I’ll also be posting it here to the site. This gives me the opportunity to showcase the brands I’m wearing on a weekly basis and profile some of the new gear arriving in shops. Like most amateurs, I rarely hit the first tee in the same brand from head to toe, so the Outfits of the Week offer a lesson in how to mix and match pieces from different brands and collections.
To kick things off, I offer you this week’s Outfit of the Week called Green In Regulation. It pulls inspiration from our Style Editor Janice Ferguson’s recent post on the color green and the fact that it is the trendy fashion color in golf apparel this year. With Tour players struggling their way around Bay Hill this past weekend, it also offers a tip of the cap the King, Arnold Palmer.

Greyson Montauk Trousers (Sage)
Don’t let the Spiritchaser print on the Comanche Half-Zip fool you; the sage green trousers are the focal point of this outfit. Greyson’s Montauk Joggers have been receiving a ton of buzz thanks to Erik van Rooyen’s recent success while rockin’ them at the WGC-Mexico Championship. The brand’s Montauk Trousers, though, are likely to appeal to a wider audience. There is so much to love about these pants. You can dress them up or dress them down. They combine sophisticated good looks with an athletic eight-way stretch performance fabric. Warning; once you buy one pair of these, you’ll be looking to get them in every color.
This sage colorway was part of the Greyson Fall 2019 Collection. The soft green hue stands out from the sea of grey, navy, and black that everyone is wearing this time of year, yet it is very easy to wear.
Adidas Ultimate365 Polo (Black)
At the foundation of every well-curated wardrobe is a range of essentials. Adidas’ Ultimate365 is the perfect polo to grab in several solid colors. The fit is on point and the performance is top-notch.
Greyson Comanche Half-Zip Hybrid (Spiritchaser)
As you know by now, Greyson is cranking out some amazing prints and patterns. The Spiritchaser, with wolves and wolves’ heads and teeth, is one of the brand’s most iconic. The Comanche Half-Zip is a glorious mashup of a water-resistant jacket and a sporty pullover. The top panel is windproof and protects against those light spring rain showers. The bottom portion is constructed from an eight-way stretch fabric that is silky smooth. Reflective branding elements and taping on the back give the Comanche a modern and sporty vibe.
Puma Golf Limited-Edition IGNITE NXT Arnie Camo Shoes
Puma took the colors in Arnold Palmer’s iconic umbrella logo and turned them into a unique camo design on the outsole, heel, and collar of these limited-edition IGNITE NXTs. The green in the camo syncs surprisingly well with the sage green pants. The camo pattern is colorful enough to add a bit of pop without overwhelming the outfit.
Bonobos Clubhouse Stretch Belt (Black)
Be prepared to see this belt in a lot of my Outfits of the Week. In the past, I saved belts like this one for the summer since they offer a lighter look and feel. Now, I’m wearing them year-round. Black is really the only option for this kit. It blends nicely with the black polo to create a smooth transition from top to bottom.
Asher Golf Premium Collection Glove (Pine)
More green! My first experience with Asher Golf was with the brand’s Managing Partner Matt Smart at the PGA Show a few years ago. It didn’t involve any products or a booth. Instead, it was me, Matt, his iPad, and some coffee in the lobby of the Hyatt. Granted, this sounds very Silicon Valley-ish, but I was intrigued by Matt’s vision for the relaunch of the brand, including a new logo and sketches of hats, t-shirts, and colorful gloves. The proof would be in the pudding, though.
A few months later, those concepts came to life in the form of products that were hip and cool, yet also refined. I was most impressed by the brand’s line of Premium Gloves. They felt great, performed on the course, and were available in an array of colors. This pine colorway was from a previous collection and works well with this setup. The dark, rich hue is perfect for winter.
Asher just dropped its new Spring Collection with gloves in three muted colors—canary yellow, flint steel, and nimbus. All three add a touch of flavor to your looks without being over the top.
The Golfer’s Journal: No. 11
I only subscribe to two print magazines these days—GQ Style and The Golfer’s Journal. It’s no coincidence that both feature a large format, top-shelf writing, and amazing photography. What I like about The Golfer’s Journal is that it doesn’t get bogged down in traditional golf magazine stuff, like swing tips, club reviews, and lists of best courses. Instead, it taps into the soul of the game by telling thoughtful stories about unique people and places in the world of golf.
I’m just digging into the latest edition, but the in-depth interview with sneakerhead and YouTube personality Jacques Slade has been the highlight so far. The interview is timely as current trends have blurred the lines between sneaker culture and the game of golf.
GolfThreads Prototype Fitted Hat
This was a one-off hat I had made a few years ago. Stay tuned as we have a limited-edition run of GolfThreads rope hats on the way for spring.
