San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2012
Bows-n-ties.com, a reputable retailer of ties and men’s accessories, today announced plans to publish a series of articles relating to the best-dressed golfers in the PGA. The series will highlight five PGA golfers who have gone to great lengths to look their best each time they step out onto the course, as well as in their downtime.
“The PGA is interesting, because golf is one of the few sports where athletes are basically allowed to dress however they please,” says Hendrik Pohl, founder of Bows-n-Ties.com. “We figured this would be the perfect opportunity to take a more concentrated look at how golfers choose to put themselves together before heading out onto the course. Not surprisingly, PGA players are some of the best-dressed athletes in the world, so we were able to have a lot of fun with this series.” It is not the first time that Pohl took a look at how athletes dress on, and off the court. Earlier this year, he wrote about Best Dressed NCAA coaches - an article that received lots of attention from readers, NBA fans, as well as fellow style critics.
Among those who were highlighted in the series for their penchant for fashion are Ryo Ishikawa and Ian Poulter, both of whom are well-known for their over-the-top appearances and eye towards pastels. Davis Love III also made the list, and is considered by many to be one of the most “American-looking” golfers on the scene. Finally, Camilo Villegas made the list for his overall stylish appearance and well-known appreciation for men’s fashion.
“All of the players who made our best-dressed list are adept at dressing in an attractive manner, regardless of whether they’re on or off the golf course,” says Pohl. “These are men who are helping to make it clear that fashion still matters, and that there is really no reason to take shortcuts when it comes to the way one puts themselves together each morning.”
Fashion in golf has historically been poked fun at, with loud and obnoxious looks being omnipresent throughout the 1970s & 1980s. In recent years, however, golfers have become far more fashionable than they once were, and are now considered to be some of the leading athletes in men’s fashion.
“There’s no getting around it; fashion is here to stay in golf, and that isn’t looking to change anytime soon,” says Pohl. “Caddyshack fashion may have had its place in the sport at one point, but those days are gone. Today, all you have to do is look to the golf course to find some of the most well-dressed men in the world of sports, even if you aren’t fond of the sport yourself.”
