How to Dress for Summer Sports

June 6, 2011

Whether you’re sweating your ass off or watching from the sidelines, you want athletic clothes that excel at both…

Dressing for Golf

The best thing you can say about golf clothes is that they don’t look like typical golf clothes. The second-best thing you can say about golf clothes is that they actually help you play golf–they ventilate and accommodate, and they don’t pull or tug or stick to your back at clutch times. Add these two things together and you get close to what Ralph Lauren is doing with his RLX Golf line. Take this fitted nylon jacket, with its strategically placed perforations under each arm for ventilation and comfort. Or this polyester polo shirt, wicking away sweat from the body and offering plenty of stretch. Or, hell, these cotton-spandex shorts, which fit perfectly and offer a little bit of give at the waist. They’re great-looking clothes that might just help your golf game. What more does a man need?

Golf: Game On

Start with dark shoes and a solid shirt and then work in color or pattern with your pants or shorts. These pants from Nike Golf, made with the brand’s Dri-FIT material, wick away moisture while offering some stretch.

Golf: Game Off

A good pair of straight-leg, flat-front golf pants can easily sub in for your favorite khakis.

Sailing: Game On

Keep it classic with fitted shorts and a polo shirt, and top it all off with a windproof and waterproof jacket. And if said jacket is of a bright color (say, orange or yellow), you’ll be that much easier to spot should you fall overboard.

Sailing: Game Off

Wear your jacket back on dry land but keep the rest of your outfit dark and sober.

Hiking: Game On

Resist the urge to dress in all brown — sure, it hides dirt, but so do some shades of blue or even red. Layer up and look for pants that zip in half to become shorts.

Hiking: Game Off

Throw on your lightweight windbreaker for nighttime barbecues.
