Loudmouth Golf Clothing...

In the summertime during my tween years, I would work for my father in his golf pro shop taking golf tee times, light book keeping, picking up golf balls on the driving range (ugh!), and keeping the golf carts clean and charged up. I would also sell golf accoutrements such as golf balls, golf gloves, golf shoes, golf clubs, and of course golf apparel...and do displays and merchandising in his shop.

My father disliked “loud” golf clothing—bright colors, busy patterns, and especially any cute patterns…ie whales. He sold Lacoste in his pro shop, but never wore anything himself with logos or branding. He didn’t want me wearing any “advertisements” either—that’s what he called any clothing with obvious logos and branding.

Above: My dad, second from left, wearing tailor made trousers—sans belt loops in the late 1970's.

As an adult, I understand where my dad was coming from about logos, and by choice I seldom wear anything with logos or obvious branding. However, I’ve always liked patterns (plaid, polka dots, paisley), colors, and even the occasional kitsch wardrobe item. I guess I’m rebelling against my father.

When Mr. Peacock first became acquainted with Loudmouth Golf clothing—I had to chuckle. It’s everything my father disliked...

bright colors and...

...loud patterned pants!

Above: Loudmouth also has shorts.

Loudmouth offers various trouser cuts. The plaid and patchwork pants are 100% cotton, and the printed and striped pants are a summer poplin (97% cotton and 3% spandex).

Above: Loudmouth even has patterned golf grips for a customized look on your golf clubs.

It’s nice to see an alternative to drab sportswear. Loudmouth clothing may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but Mr. Peacock thinks you can wear “loud” clothes and still look chic.

Above: Alice Cooper wears Loudmouth, and has always been an avid golfer.

Wear one “loud” or patterned piece of clothing, and pair it with a solid color such as white, black, gray or navy—and wear it with confidence!

The US Open Golf tournament championship is this week. My father played in this tournament in the 1960’s—wearing only black, gray or navy trousers, with white, powder blue, and pink polo shirts. Let’s see if anyone is wearing Loudmouth at the US Open.

Do you wear any “loud” clothes—bright colors or patterns?

Stop! I’m having a Rodney Dangerfield Caddyshack moment!

Does having an closet full of Peach Berserk clothes count as loud or just colourful?

Not to mention the odd Betsey Johnson piece.

I love Alice Cooper- he is forever immortalized by his turn in Wayne's World.

I have to admit to owning a pair of vintage navy blue IZOD silk trousers in a loud foulard print. I love wearing them to fancy places and watching people stare. The trick is to be totally unaware of the distraction.

Okay, frankly, I would absolutely give those aqua plaid numbers a go!

I dress, sadly, more conservatively theses days than 10 years ago (I LOVED the "loud" back then!) but I'm hoping to see a bit more "noise" in future wardrobe choices. ;) (And this is the best place to be inspired for that, Mr. Peacock! Swooning.)

Hmmmm, I think it all comes down to the person who gets to wear the clothes. Bright clothes like that suit the person best if they can radiate or complement the kind of energy within the colors and patterns. In any case, loud stuff like those clothes can be pretty fun 'round the golf course.

As I had observed with all the sports, golf is the most fashionable. Since the beginning you can see the development in the outfit or clothing. Every era has its own style. You can also visit here to learn more about Golf Apparel.

I like the color contrast of a peacock golfer in Loudmouth plaid pants. I think golfer's should have to wear bright colors in daylight.
