In the past few years we have seen a trend where more and more designer labels have looked to break into the golfing world with apparel. Brands like Ralph Lauren, Original Penguin, TravisMathew, G/FORE and plenty more make the best golf tops, best golf pants and pretty much every other piece of clothing.

These products often look great and give your game the confidence it deserves thanks to the premium, high-quality feel and aesthetics of the garments. But which models should you go for? Well we have taken a look at some of our favorites pieces of designer golf clothing below so hopefully you find something you like. Alternatively if you are after something else we also recommend having a look at some of our other buying guides below too. Such as the best golf shoes, best golf rain gear or best golf hats.

Why you can trust Golf Monthly Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.







How we test golf apparel

We test golf apparel in the same way we test all golf equipment, by using products properly. In relation to designer clothing this means putting them to the test out on the golf course to see if the products actually work and if they achieve what they are designed to do. We would also wear the products off the golf course as well because versatility to use a garment anywhere is a great way to get value for money. The final point we wanted to mention here is no manufacturer can pay for a good review because our thorough testing team tells it how it is. 

How to choose your golf apparel

There are several factors to consider when it comes to buying a golf apparel and here we have listed them.


What we mean here is what type of golf apparel are you after? Clothing is a vague term so have a think about your golfing wardrobe and see where your gaps are. That way you can inform your buying intent more. Obviously it is worth noting the time of year because in the selections above we not only have included jackets and hoodies for colder weather, but also polo shirts and shorts for the summer months. 


Linking with the above point, knowing what you are after will help you decide what material to go for. The fleece models above will keep the cold at bay whilst ones with more spandex in them will help you move easier and won't restrict the golf swing in any way. Additionally we have found the models with cotton in them are often the best for wearing out and about as well, and they are very easy to wash. 


One of the big things around golf clothing is freedom of movement and whether they can restrict or negatively impact the swing. From jackets to pants the apparel needs to move properly and not hinder your swing. As such, we would recommend trying on models and taking swings in them to see if you still offer the same range of movement.


This is an important factor to consider. Do you want to stand out or just have a more understated look? We think there is something for everyone above. 


Do you want to be able to use the clothing anywhere from the golf course to the pub to at home? This is an important factor if you want to get more for your money and this is where the designer brands really shine as well. 


Finally be aware of your budget so you can find apparel that fits into it nicely. Importantly there are models above which come with premium, and value price points so there is something for everyone.
