Now.  Nut huggers and capri pants on men, some showing hairy ankles.....I like me some DJ but not his stick and nads swinging to and fro.      

Now. Men's leggings (yes, it's a thing), hoodies, flat brim caps, floods, t-shorts, lemme wear wtf and f u.   The only thing saving it is women's micro shorts. Just sayin'. Word.

Whatever era you would say this represents

I don't know if there is a "bad" era, but certainly bad moments in golf fashion....and players who were poorly dressed in those brief eras. I remember guys like Rory Sabbitini, Woody Austin, Jesper Parnevik, Ian Poulter, Shingo Katayama and John Daly were horrendously dressed most of the time.  Actually...the monochrome polo's with outlandish color pants, that era was garbage.  Even some of Tiger's clothing early on was suspect.  Davis Love III had nice, albeit conservative styling with Ralph Lauren Polo. Payne Stewart was so uniquely dressed, it was fun to observe.

I'm 40 and I wear leggings out on the course on cold days.  Nothing wrong with wearing them especially when you have the legs to show them off, haha.  I also do pink shirts, white belts and hoodies as well.  Flat brim hats are meh and not my style, but I'm not going to criticize anyone for wearing them out on the course.  Btw, I grew up on a private cc.

Yep. It’s now for sure.  I’m a tall guy with a 35 inch waist.  You literally have to try on every single pair of shorts or pants to know what you have. Some are Capri pants.  Some shorts are trimmed below the knees. I hate long shorts and short pants. 

We are about the same size and I havent had any issues finding shorts. How tall are you? I am 6'3

Oh the humanity!

Is that you gramps?  I'm just messing with you bro.  Actually, I started wearing tights while golfing before it became a thing with the kids.  It's more functional more than anything.

I think there’s a big confusion between the Lululemon joggers and tights. I imagine some of the older gentleman are picturing men golfing in yoga pants... that’s not what it is. Just a more taper, tailored look. Joggers stop short of the ankle and some have a cuff there, but they’re a far cry from spandex leggings.

In it's own micro-climate: anything from the Pringle 'Faldo range' in the early 90's was pretty dire looking back. How on Earth i thought i looked cool as an aspiring Pro back then i'll never know......

I had a tasty mustard yellow Pringle sweater with Geometric George on it. I got rid of it a few years ago, but I bet there are collectors out there who would pay good money for it.

I just realised that Geometric George is a lefty, or at least he is in that top picture.

My blue argyle Pringle was snazzy. pattern in kelly green, white and yellow.

I still like the colorful stuff, using some bright tones in the wardrobe when possible.

Poulter in that gold shirt looks like he earned the Clubhouse Pass bonus item in PGA 2k21 😂

 

I thought Bob May when dueling with Tiger looked like he had to go back to his sniper position in Iraq after the round. Jeff Maggert, too, this Beige-Khaki-Brown Ping stuff was AWFUL. 


I like the 60s, Sam Snead in Shell‘s WWOG looked sharp. 
 

I do like the tighter cut pants nowadays, IF the person wearing them is athletic enough. 
The modern shirts- not so much. The best thing about them is the breathable materials, but I tend to buy shirts at Rockabilly stores. Gotta match the shoes then.

I played today with a set of Mizuno MS-7 irons (similar to the TP-9s), so I wore my only surviving Pringle to match. My wife took one look at it and asked "you didn't choose that, did you?"😒

For shoes, currently. Nothing compares to Footjoy Classic era. 

 

I think there are more good golf shoe options now than there ever have been as the running shoe platform (everyone) and casual looking models (like Ecco and Truelinkswear) gain popularity.  G/Fore Gallivanters are a fantastic updated option if you like the classic look.  I've found them to be very well made and very comfortable.  Of course, FootJoy still has the Icon and the 1857 line that are in that vein as well.  There are a few niche brands (Lambda and Stuburt come to mind) that do the classic stuff too. Never been better!
