Proud 90: Comfort and Style in Pinehurst

There’s no better time to rock new gear than on a golf trip. It’s vital to approach a trip well-prepared, with an array of outfits that are comfortable, breathe well and look good. If you love the game and enjoy traveling, you need to bring your A-game both from a golfing and fashion perspective to maximize the experience and create the best memories.

Proud 90’s motto, “Golf is Fun,” is the reason why we enthusiasts go on golf vacations in the first place, and its apparel couldn’t be better suited for golf travel.

On WiscoGolfAddict’s recent excursion to Pinehurst, we were thrilled to hit the links with fresh new polos, hoodies and quarter-zips from Proud 90. As Contributing Writer Troy Giljohann explored in his review last year, this up-and-coming brand features really fun and wild colors and designs, with comfortable and stretchy fabric that ensures a less sweaty experience on the course. Less sweat and bright, vacation-themed shirts made for the perfect enhancement to an already-epic buddies trip in the North Carolina sandhills.

The Quarter-Zips

When I first tried on my Proud 90 quarter-zip, I felt blissfully comfortable in its smooth, stretchable material. They wear large, so my medium-sized piece turned out to be a little baggy, but not so much that it hindered my swing or felt hot. The mornings at Pinehurst were quite chilly, but it warmed up considerably in the afternoons. While my Q-Zip provided ample warmth in the morning, the lightweight material breathed well enough that I didn’t feel the need to rip it off the moment temps topped 60.

The Q-Zips come in Breezy Blue, Baton Rouge, Azalea and Deep Ocean, four unique colors that each have “vacation” written all over them.

The Hoodies

Similar to listening to music in the cart, wearing a hoodie on the golf course is a relatively new craze embraced by the younger golfing generations, much to the dismay of the old guard. Some may disagree with hoodies being acceptable golf attire, while many others find their comfort and look appealing for a laid-back, cool-weather experience. My take is that anything that makes you feel more comfortable and less uptight will likely help you play better, and if a hoodie does the trick, then all the power to you!

Regardless of where you stand on hoodies on the golf course, I think most would agree that Proud 90’s hoodies look sharp and provide a level of comfort that’s perfect for relaxation (whether that’s on or off the course). Their hoodie line comes in four colors – Deep Blue, Sunday Red, Blue Marker, and Caribbean Coral – another lineup of bright, easy-going looks.

The polos

Proud 90’s extensive polo line includes fun vacation-themed patterns as well as bold solid-colored options, ensuring you can dial in your wardrobe selection for the nature of the occasion. For the Pinehurst trip, we had the opportunity to choose a polo style that best spoke to our golfing selves while fitting in with the overall vibe of the trip.

The light, stretchable material of Proud 90’s polos provided for maximum comfort and removed any inhibition (both physical and mental) that could negatively impact the golf swing. On a sunny, 70-degree Carolina afternoon of a multi-round day, I hardly sweated at all in my Clover Green polo, even though I’m known to sweat a lot. After an excellent round at Mid South Club in my “good luck” Clover polo, I can’t wait for Wisconsin weather to warm up enough to wear it on the course again.
