I think people that wear khaki should need to break 70. Black pants like TW? Better be able to win a Major.

Jeez. Put this one right up there with the deep and meaningful conversations on white belts.

I sometimes think that if I went into some futuristic time capsule and came back 100 years from now there would still be some guy expressing an opinion on white pants or belts.

I own one pair of white pants. The Under Armours from two years ago maybe. Got 'em for a song.

Anyway, I only wear those when I'm in a situation or at a facility where protocol dictates I should wear pants and it's also late spring or summertime, which in the lower Midwest is 85*-90*+. But they also get dirty or dusty very quickly, hence why I hardly wear them. And in cooler temps, I'll wear a darker color. I love them, but I don't wear them past September. Not that I feel a need to conform to societal fashion norms, but because there are better options once the weather cools down a little bit.

Life is too short to not do what you want as long as it doesn't adversely affect the people around you. If you want to wear white pants, go for it. Wanna do it in December? Go for it. Who cares?

I actually rocked white pants for golf league last night. Was a little unsure of it leaving the house, since league isn't exactly the final stepping stone before the PGA tour, but figured I bought them I may as well wear them.

Actually received quite a few compliments and no criticism. It probably helps I shot 36 (that could've and should've been a 34...damn putter).

I didn't feel one bit uncomfortable wearing them. Most of the guys in our league are between an 8 and a 16 handicap, and you wouldn't find them dead in white pants.

The only joke/comment I heard was "dang man, you better shoot scratch to be wearing those!"

i love white shorts, wear them all the time. not a huge fan of khaki though i have a pair. to me white shorts (and black) go with any shirt.

I wear white pants every now and then... but man they get so dirty its almost not worth it.



I also wear a white blazer to work every now and then. gotta keep it loose!

I genuinely don’t understand why color of clothing should denote one’s playing ability.  Can someone please explain it to me? Maybe I’m not sharp enough, but I’ve never seen someone and thought, “Nice red/green/blue shirt, hope that sumbitch can break 70 if he’s going to wear that color”!

Better wear them under the white shorts/pants or people will see your fruit-of-the-looms.  Go performance though.  No cotton undies on the course for me anymore.
