Yes, the Phil Mickelson dress shirt is actually comfortable to golf in

Published

on

When Phil Mickelson arrived for his practice round ahead of the Masters at Augusta National earlier this year in a Mizzen+Main dress shirt, there were plenty of questions.

One that was asked jokingly in the social media sphere: Was Lefty running late for his tee time, unable to stop in the locker room to change into a polo?

Actually, that’s kind of the idea. I mean, not exactly, but Mizzen+Main wanted to make a dress shirt that you can comfortably play golf in…if you want to.

And while some might think Mickelson, a partner in the company, was part of a mere marketing stunt, I can confirm that you can actually comfortably wear these shirts on the golf course.

Really.

Mizzen+Main sent me a light blue solid “Nelson Mickelson Edition” shirt, and I put it through the paces on course. It stretches more than you’d expect, is plenty breathable, and still looks like a dress shirt, rather than athletic wear masquerading as a dress shirt (important for the whole “off-course wear” thing).

Alan Bastable hit on what Mizzen+Main is aiming for in a May article for Golf.com.

“Despite Mickelson’s marketing clout, it’s hard to imagine dress shirts sweeping the golf world by storm. But that was never the point, [CEO Kevin] Lavelle said. His hope is that when consumers see that the shirt is comfortable and flexible enough to play golf in — it’s 85% polyester and 15% spandex — they’ll be confident that it will also hold up when they’re grinding out spreadsheets or expense reports.”

So, maybe you don’t love Phil’s dress shirt look (although the company says sales of the Mickelson Edition shirts have exploded). Maybe you would never wear a dress shirt on the golf course (I personally probably never will again). But–as I found out–you can do so comfortably in a Mizzen+Main shirt.

So, to that end, we say.

Don’t @ me, GolfWRX members.

    DAMN 150 + bucks each ! people would think I’m rolling on dough at my course. They would want me to buy em’ all drinks and pay for their lunch. Might wanna stick to the cheap Nike or Oakley shirts so I fit in with the rest of the sheep

    Comes with a free bowl of soup.

    How about we stop trying to make this happen, like those blade collars or mock turtlenecks. I know this looks stupid. Phil knows it looks stupid. Ben knows it looks stupid. Everyone knows this looks stupid. It’s not going to catch on. It’s very easy to change from the “boardroom” shirt to the polo shirt. You can do it at a red light on the way to the course.

    I feel very sorry for Mizzen & Mast for putting so much money into the production of this stupid thing, and spamming comments sections, but the faster the Mizzen & Main sink beneath the waves, the better.

    You could probably play golf comfortably wearing a tu-tu also, but that doesn’t change how bad the look is. Same with this, it looks ridiculous on a golf course.

    I own over 10 of these shirts. They are stretchy just like a Nike performance polo. They are the real deal.

      Don’t you feel clammy wet and/or burning hot in a 85% polyester and 15% spandex shirt. Polyester is a cheap fabric too …..
