Since 2021, a Todd Snyder x FootJoy collab has been an annual highlight for us at GolfThreads and we hope there are many more for years to come. This is a partnership made in golf fashion heaven.
For 2023, Todd Snyder and FJ have teamed up again to create a stylish and modern take on classic golf fashion of old-school legends from the ’60s and ’70s. The collection, titled “The Back Tees,” borrows from the traditional codes of American menswear and places them in performance technical fabrics. It features a palette of blacks, blues, olives, and geometric and jacquard prints, as well as two new premium pebble-grain leather golf shoes based on FootJoy’s Wilcox and Field Premiere Series models.
“I am so excited to be working with FootJoy again to create a collection worthy of the pro tees, we’ve taken some of our favorite design details from the golden age of golf–including the luster of mercerised cotton sweater polos and the brogueing on a bespoke golf shoe–and combined them with state-of-the-art technology and modern style,” says Snyder. “Because one thing that I’ve learned in my years on the links is that you can’t always be the best player in your foursome, but if you’re wearing our collection you can certainly be the most stylish.”
Premiere Series Wilcox & Field
The Premiere Series Wilcox & Field Shoes are Snyder’s take on FootJoy’s elite-level performance footwear. The shoes feature a combination of stability, comfort, and traction features, with hand-selected premium full-grain leather from Pittards that offers unparalleled beauty, fit, and resistance to stretching. Premium patent leather accents, orange lace tips and stitching, and the hit of camo on the midsoles deliver a juxtaposition of styles that blends iconic and ultra-modern looks.
A classic polo inspired by 1960s style, made from stretchy, sweat-wicking ProDry Pique fabric with anti-microbial technology. The Pique Polos feel right at home on the fairways, the clubhouse, or that backyard barbecue.
The Sweater Polo
Sporty meets sartorial with the retro-inspired Sweater Polo, which was inspired by Todd Snyder’s best-selling Riviera Polo. Made from mercerized cotton, it’s more durable and mildew-resistant than traditional cotton. The front body features a seamlessly integrated stripe and subtle zig-zag texture, while the back is solid. Perfect for layering on and off the course, this is the vibey-est piece in the collection.
Seersucker Traveler Short
The Todd Snyder x FootJoy collaboration brings back a popular piece with the Traveler Short, now available in comfortable stretch cotton seersucker. This versatile short offers a balance of polished and relaxed styles, featuring an elastic waist and adjustable drawcord for a comfortable fit. Ideal for days when golf is on the agenda before or after work. Add this to the top of your shopping list because this short sold out quickly in years past.
Seersucker Camp Jogger
Another popular style from previous collabs makes a return. These pants are inspired by a military camp design, with a modern twist of an elastic waistband and cuffed leg opening. Made from luxurious stretch cotton seersucker, they’re a stylish addition to your casual wardrobe or on-course rotation.
Camo Shoe Bag & Crossbody Bag
This sturdy shoe bag with a navy camo print protects and keeps those Wilcoxes and Fields looking their best. The bag features handles, side vents, and a two-way zipper with a leather pull. The interior has a tonal FootJoy logo pattern. The trendy crossbody bag has the same camo print and two-way zipper with the added convenience of a quick-release strap.
The classic bucket hat has been updated by Todd Snyder to be fully reversible with seersucker on one side and plaid on the other, both featuring a tipped grosgrain band and an embroidered FootJoy x Todd Snyder shield patch. It also includes ventilation eyelets and a wide brim for comfort on the golf course. Don’t sleep on the seersucker rope hats and visors, though. That’s where my money is going.
How to Cop
Max Homa, Webb Simpson, and Davis Riley will debut select pieces from the collection at this week’s PGA Championships. The rest of us can get in on the action when it drops on Thursday, May 18th at ToddSnyder.com, FootJoy.com, and select Todd Snyder retail locations. The line starts behind me.
