i usually dont care what people dress like but for some reason, jeans on the course just doesn't seem right to me.  It's like the people who wears jeans to the gym.  I look at golf as a sport and wearing jeans to work out, play sports, etc. just doesn't seem right or comfortable for that matter.

but then again, i've worn boardshorts a few times and I'm sure some of you probably think wearing boardshorts is worse then jeans.

But my preference is for athletic pants, like windbreakers or rain pants.

+1 here. I never have wore jeans to the course.  However, if the course allows it, I am not offended by others who do.

I did it today, never done it before, probably will never do it again. My club allows them after Nov 1st because it's cold to us Texans and this morning it was 40 and windy so I said to hell with it and wore some nice designer jeans. I can't swing worth %$^T$% in jeans, no room to move because I actually wear jeans that fit. I'll just play in the afternoons when it's cold from now on.

Jeans are crap for golf - they get wet and stay wet, they don't stretch enough, and they aren't that warm compared to proper water/windproofs. Other than the fact that they look naff on the golf course (and quite often off it), they serve no practical use other than to use up 63 pages of bandwidth on Golfwrx....

My course doesn't allow jeans, so I don't wear them 95% of the time.  However, when I go play other courses that aren't as nice and do allow jeans... and it's cold outside.. I'm likely to wear jeans.

jeans just doesn't look right or appropriate at a golf course.  the only time that it may look ok is if its on a hacker at a muni course with a towel hanging on his side with a mustache....then i can identify trailer trash better.

I prefer a good par of hip hugger jeans, cowboy boots with spurs, chew, and a western shirt with a Texas tie for the course.

Depends on the course. Wear shorts 90% of the time, but I have wore jeans once or twice.

Those look like "winter camo" ?.  Anyways, I was doing some Xmas shopping for my bro the other day at a Factory Outlet Wrangler strore, and was curious about their nice looking more brown camo jeans/trousers.  They would be "summer camo" if I recall from my hunting days a million years ago in High School.

I might get some for kicks, and if it is really cold, I'd sport them on the course as well.

those ones aren't winter camo, they are for places with lots of brown, the grey is supposed to break up the solid shape of a human. I've been caught in the open before and the deer just stared straight through me, no idea I was there. Kuiu also make a nice pattern that is more green based if that is what you are looking for.

Jeans and any 100% cotton trousers such as chinos are impractical for sport in my opinion. Retain moisture and soak up rain like blotting paper

No chance in hell would I wear jeans or cargos to the range, club house bar or the course. I own no cargos and very few pairs of jeans. I'm not snooty, it's just tradition, respect and manners.

this topic is tired. "why can't i wear a dress when i play basketball?" i suppose you could, although you'd look like an idiot.

if you don't mind looking like: a) a redneck, b) a 120+ golfer, or c) you just don't care, than go ahead and wear jeans.

There is that word "tradition" again!  If your idea of tradition of a polo shirt and trousers then it is traditional as far back as the 1950's, that's all.

Unless of course you play in full highland dress in a 14th century tradition?

I live in a rural area where people are not as formal. Most of the better players around here are not concerned with what they are wearing and are there to play golf and not impress anyone. I like to wear nice clothes to play, but will wear jeans and not worry about it on occasion.

Never have, but it is more of a personal preference.  In So Cal, you can almost always wear shorts, so there is no need for pants even.

Never have, but in the far North of Scotland its perfectly acceptable at most clubs.

I actually find them uncomfortable and useless in our unpredictable weather, but no issues with those who do.

I am new around here, and don't want to ruffle feathers, but why so much hating on jeans? If the course doesn't have rules against them, why would you care? I play at a muni course in the Portland area, and quite a few of the better players wear jeans. We are Americans dammit. The director of Portland golf wears jeans sometimes, along with several club champs. Before you try to slam our club, we have one of the most competitive clubs in the country, according to a GolfWorld article awhile back. I would much rather see jeans than Loudmouths, anything plaid, or lycra infused crotch enhancers. Hating on jeans is just another reason for people to think this is a snobby, elitist game, but maybe that's what some of you like about golf.

I agree with you bro! As I stated a few posts above yours., the better players around here aren't concerned with dress, but with just the game of golf. Now I'm not talking about ragged jeans and a tattered t-shirt, but nice looking jeans and a collared shirt.

no one is worried about who is wearing jeans, except the guys on the style and fashion page of golfwrx. so about 1/2 percent of all golfers.

No I do not wear jeans and most places I play do not allow it. I would think it would be not pleasant wearing jeans but everone has their own opinions I guess as to whats comfortable. It does not mind me seeing others in jeans if it is allowed so more power to them if they enjoy it.
