Polo Shirts outdated according to Wife


Recommended Posts

Yep, she is correct. Your current golf attire looks exactly like mine did two years ago. Time to upgrade my friend. For whats its worth, we are close to the same age as well - I'm 50. I went the moisture wicking material route for all my new polos and much happier. The 100% cotton was to darn hot.

Your wife seems very wise, and also seems to have your best interests at heart. Hang on to her, but lose the shirts.

I would post a picture of my golf shirts, but can't find a way to get them all in the frame. Let's just say that if it wasn't for golf shirts and shoes, and golf clubs, I could comfortably live in a Tiny House.

The last with the red pocket isn't good looking.

 

It's fun to add a few new shirts each year and get rid of a couple that are showing age or not fitting well.

 

If you play a lot, it would also give you more variety if you had more shirts, if that that is you golf collection.

Try some wicking shirts for hot weather and wear some of your plain cotton shirts in cool weather.

Cotton polos are for the birds in my opinion. They fade and even after you iron them they only look good until you sit down one time. I haven't worn a cotton Polo since I was in my mid 20's and I just turned 40!! I would possibly wear a cotton polo off the course...maybe. But yeah you should probably get online and pick up a few upgrades !!

I tend to buy new polos every season, especially if my wife and I do a golf trip since I like to buy polos with course logos. That said, I sorda understand what the OP is going through. I have a hard time letting go of older golf shirts too.

I have two stages to my polo "retirement" process. Stage 1 is it gets removed from the hangers in the closet, and moved into the back corner of a dresser drawer. That's where it sits until stage 2, which is when the wife says "Goodwill is going to be doing a pickup of donations, get some of your stuff ready". If the shirt sat through the entirety of stage 1 without even as much as a glance from me, that's when I know it's time to go to a new home.

That said, I still have a Ralph Lauren RX polo that I bought at Pebble Beach in 2013. It's made of the good moisture-wicking material, but it's looking a little out-dated. I am having a very hard time letting go of it, mostly because of the logo on it. Fortunately my wife and I are planning on going back to Pebble later this year, so my intent is to replace it with a newer model.

You never be one of those guys where you can tell just by the clothes they wear, what year they retired from working. Used to see it all the time in the 80's and 90's from the seniors. They stopped buying new clothes the day they retired.

Nike, FJ, Adidas, and UA all have nice, sythentic blend, moisture wicking shirts with a modern modern look. I became a lot more partial today to FJ due to the XL being a perfect size as well as a great choice in colors and decent designs. If you’re a little chubby, do yourself a favor and stay away from anything with horizontal stripes.
