Practice Range Style: Improvised Knickers Edition


When your practice range is in the heart of New York City (or rather the heart of the East River, on Randall’s Island), you’re bound to see the occasional fashion statement.

This guy yesterday certainly caught my eye. He was tall, had a great swing, and then there were those pants. I asked if he were wearing actual golf knickers, and he explained that they were in fact just pants from Uniqlo that he bought four inches too short, then rolled up to just below the knee (in the photo it looks like they’ve rolled back down a bit).

I thought he carried it off great, and the slim, chino-like fit of the pants kept them out of retro-eccentric territory. Baggy plus-fours should probably stay with the hickory-shaft crowd.
