Let’s get this straight: Casual dress codes do not give you a pass to look like a slob after the round. This Italian merino-wool-blend sweater from Adidas will stand up to the elements on the course and critics in the clubhouse. Moisture-wicking fabric and a looser cut ensure a comfortable round of golf, and the baseball collar and ribbed hem create a clean look beyond the course. It’s versatile enough to be worn alone, under a jacket or even thrown over a t-shirt for a quick ensemble upgrade.
When a jacket is required or highly encouraged at a club, opt for a sport coat that adds style, not stuffiness. Unconstructed blazers have become more popular because they’re versatile, lightweight and easily elevate casual styling. The Peter Millar jacket takes cues from the soft-jacket trend while maintaining a noticeable level of elegance. Because it’s partially lined, it’ll look great layered over a sports shirt in the summer or a sweater in the winter. Details like mother-of-pearl buttons, high-end pick stitching and a barchetta chest pocket add to the luxe finish of this 100-percent merino-wool jacket. It’s also wrinkle-resistant, stain-repellent and water-repellent to ensure a clean look through dinner, drinks and even a few swings.
