Well, it looks like we’re going to be here for a while. And by ‘here’ I mean our dens, guest rooms, and garages. If you are lucky enough to have a job during this crazy time, you are likely zooming from video call to video call in a makeshift home office space.
By now you have heard all the keys to working from home from all the working from home experts—get out of bed, take a shower, get dressed, wear pants, etc.
Personally, I’ve been gravitating towards my favorite golf gear during this wfh era. The lightweight, stretchy fabrics deliver all the comfort of loungewear, but I still feel like I got dressed for the day ahead. Plus, throwing on a stylish polo, pullover, or hoodie will earn you best-dressed honors on any video meeting these days.
Beyond the obvious comfort qualities of the fabrics, I’m also finding much-needed happiness in throwing on some of my fairway faves, even though I have no idea when I’ll tee it up again.
With that in mind, we put together five golf-inspired work from home fits. That’s a week’s worth of looks that will guarantee you’re the most stylish dude in the Brady Bunch tiles on that Zoom call.
More good news; many of the pieces in these outfits will easily transition to the course once we are set free from our quarantines. Even better news; there are deals to be had out there.
Linksoul: The Low Stinger
Not only are Linksoul t-shirts the most comfortable ones in the pro shop, but the graphics are also wearable works of art designed by Linksoul co-founder Geoff Cunningham. Known as @parnography on Instagram, Cunningham posted the Flatten the Curve artwork to the ‘Gram. So many people doubled tapped on the post that Linksoul decided to turn it into a tee to benefit the Center for Disaster Philanthropy.
With 100% of the proceeds going to the organization, over $125,000 has been raised to support the most vulnerable populations affected by this crisis, including hourly wage workers, the elderly, and those with disabilities. The center also connects with NGOs to provide desperately needed supplies to those on the front lines in our hospitals.
Everything we love about Linksoul’s Boardwalker Shorts can be said for the Boardwalker Pants—lightweight, slim-straight fit, and a five-pocket design. The earthy sycamore colorway pairs well with the navy tee.
Completing the look is the casual, yet on-trend Pocket Crewneck and the True Linkswear x Linksoul Slip-On in charcoal.
Devereux: Zoom Style Perfected
Casual, yet stylish. With this ‘fit from Devereux, you’ll look like you have the whole work from home vibe effortlessly figured out.
Leave the blazer in the office and layer up with Devereux’s Echo Technical Jacket. Big, bold prints are dominating the outerwear scene this season and the large-scale camo pattern will certainly make your co-workers take notice when you pop up on their screens. Besides, the point collar offers a fashion upgrade over basic pullovers.
Even if you ditch the jacket during the day, the Short Sleeve Slub Crewneck brings an element of style to the mix. And, combining two dusty pastels through the t-shirt and the Gravity Pant creates a refreshing pop of color for spring.
Speaking of the Gravity Pant, it is one of the lightest, most comfortable pants you will find. With a hybrid stretch fabric and mesh pockets, the Gravity Pant feels like a longer version of your favorite boardshorts.
Of course, lacing up a pair of SeaVees is always a smart way to complete a casual look.
Greyson Clothiers: Spring Refresh
Let’s face it; we can all use good vibes these days and this outfit delivers plenty of positive energy. It is also the most golf-ready of the bunch, so once this mess is over, you can stroll out of the home office and onto your home course.
What I like about this outfit is how various styles come together to create a cohesive look. You get the modern fit and eight-way stretch of Greyson’s Montauk Trousers in a fashion-forward orange (koi) colorway. This is then balanced against the classic good looks of the Saranac Polo with a traditional feeder stripe. And, wow! How great does that indigo color look with the koi.
Bringing an athletic attitude to the fit is the Cokato Hoodie. The bold botanical print finds itself on-trend while also being a touch whimsical with hidden wolves, bears, and tigers. Oh, my! This setup is the epitome of athletic luxury and bounces between fun and serious.
The only way to complete the look is with a proper trainer-style shoe, like the new Saxon from Royal Albartross.
Adidas Golf: Smooth Crossover
Go-anywhere, do-anything crossover collections are all the rage these days. Adidas’ Adicross capsule has captured back-to-back GolfThreads Style Awards our favorite crossover collection. Little did we know, we’d only be crossing over from the kitchen to the home office in 2020.
This fit nails that tricky balance of comfort and professionalism that is so difficult to navigate in the new work-from-home era. The short sleeve Adicross button-up is the perfect substitute for the in-office dress shirt. It says you respect your virtual co-workers and clients enough to upgrade from a wrinkled t-shirt. At the same time, you are laid-back enough to embrace the new normal.
While no one will see your Adicross Warp Knit Pants, they will keep you comfortable as you try to make it through your fifth video call of the afternoon. These pants have a modern carrot shape with a roomy fit in the thighs and an aggressive taper around the ankles. Plus, the slim utility pocket is the perfect place to stash your phone during those long, meandering walks through the neighborhood.
For a bit of fun (and we can all use some of that), the Adicross Anorak brings a ‘90s streetwear flair to those virtual happy hours. Besides, the color-blocked design totally works with the tiled Zoom layout.
To complete the look, lace up a pair of Ultraboost 20 kicks. This colorway, with an iridescent blue and purple midsole, is the result of Adidas’ partnership with the International Space Station. That’s right; not only do they complement the navy blue Warp Knit Pants, but it is safe to say they are out of this world. Quarantining in outer space? Hmmm…
J.Lindeberg: Back to the Future
Casual Friday has become even more relaxed now. Here we combine two of J.Lindeberg’s capsule collections for the season—the Future.Archive and Double JL— into one comfy and stylish look.
J.Lindeberg has one of the most iconic logos in the game. The flowing ‘JL bridge’ is a symbol for golfers who appreciate fashion, function, luxury, and athleticism, and both of these capsules pay tribute to the history of the logo.
Together, Jesper Parnevik and J.Lindeberg led the golf fashion revolution in the 2000s and the Future.Archive takes us on a trip down memory lane. The Rubi Polo, with the unmistakable center seam, was one of JL’s classic golf pieces. The brand archived it in 2017 only to give it a reboot this season with a technical pique fabric, elongated three-button placket, and the signature JL logo on the collar.
The Rubi looks great layered under the JLJL Crewneck with a hint of the collar showing. Crewnecks are trending in the golf fashion world and the double JL Crewneck is clean and fashionable while feeding into the current athleisure movement. Consider it a refined streetwear piece that can go anywhere.
With haircuts falling into either the DIY or not-at-all categories, hat days are becoming commonplace. To cover your dome, we return to the Future.Archive Collection and the hip and technical York Micro Poly Cap with a retro version of the JL logo done in a dot pattern.
Greyson never misses. This was a fun article.
