About Golf Pants

In the past, golf pants were done in brightly colored plaid. In the 1950s golfers such as Arnold Palmer were seen clad in these pants. They attracted much attention and were the common wear for golfers on the links. Then the trend of wearing classic styles of pants became the norm. Golf pants are done in a style that resembles a regular pair of casual slacks. Most popular in khaki or a basic navy, they are done in a cotton blend that makes them both comfortable and breathable.

No longer hidden away, plaid pants have made a comeback among the younger golf set and anyone wanting to make a fashion statement on the course. Not only are plaid pants popular once again, but pants done in wild prints and colors are as well. There are no rules on what to wear when golfing, express yourself in what makes you feel comfortable. Try a pair of plaid golf pants the next time you want to wear something bold!
