GQ Magazine - The Golf Commandments
This month in GQ, the article "The Golf Commandments" on page 76 lists their top ten thoughts on how to improve the game of golf. One guess who the first commandment is about.
"#1 No Double Pleats - Back in Arnold Palmer's heyday, golfers used to dress like breezy Rat Packers on holiday. Now they dress like assistant managers at OfficeMax. It's time to ditch those pleated khakis and oversize polo shirts. You can mix it up, fellas. Try a white belt, try some slim-fitting pants, and try wearing a shirt with sleeves that fit."
During the late 50's and 60's, Arnold was not only admired for his feats on the course, but also his cut clothes and charismatic charm. Look for Arnold's 1960 look to be taking the course again soon.
