Style Code: Stylish Layering Tips for Fall

Fall golf apparel is a must when the temperatures start to drop. What’s the one thing that is constant in fall? That there is no constant when it comes to the weather.

Being prepared in terms of your attire is the name of the game if you want to ensure your autumn golf round isn’t a bust. When you learn how to layer, you’ll find that you are prepared for whatever the forecast throws at you—from September through December.

Our team at FairwayStyles will take you through the proper way to layer your fall apparel as well as highlight brands that excel at designing certain layers—it’s not just about golf pullovers, though they are a key player. Here are our top-performing men’s golf outerwear items.

Step 1: Establish Your Golf Base Layer

FootJoy PhaseOne Base Layer

While a golf base layer is essential for a cooler fall day, you might be surprised how helpful they can be at regulating your body when temperatures are dropping. When it comes to the best in base layers, FootJoy Golf is a favorite, and for good reason.

With multiple options, including thermal, FootJoy’s base layers promise to keep you warm and comfortable with its HexaTherm technology. HexaTherm regulates your body’s temperature through advanced thermal conductivity.

The brand’s ProDry Base Layer Fabrication aims to fit you like a glove, conforming to your body to keep warmth in and ensure your swing is never restricted. Best of all, the base layer’s anti-microbial finish means you don’t have to worry about any odor should you break a sweat.

Step 2: Find a Top-Notch Golf Polo

TravisMathew Prestige LifeStyle Performance fabric is wrinkle-resistant and features enhanced stretch ensuring you supreme comfort. Best of all, these golf shirts are easy to care for as well—wash and wear just how you want them.

Another option are TravisMathew’s golf shirts featuring Prestige Pure Performance fabric. Designed to perform in extreme conditions, the fabric is lightweight so it feels comfortable, but it also has advanced quick drying technology to prevent sweat buildup. Finally, the fabric is super durable and resistant to shrinking and wrinkles. These designs also come in long sleeve options.

Let’s face it, fall weather can be indecisive—starting cool in the morning with temperatures that creep up before noon—which is why layering with a golf vest is the ideal solution. RLX Golf vests provide a host of options. They have fleece, wind-resistant and techy options.

Looking for a vest that has stretch and fights sweat buildup with moisture wicking? RLX Golf has you covered. When a stiff fall breeze is the concern, RLX Golf has a vest offering wind-block material in the front and natural merino wool for additional warmth. Whatever you choose, a golf vest is a great layering choice when the weather can’t make up its mind.

Galvin Green has some great golf vests featuring an athletic fit and are constructed to provide high breathability, wind protection, softness and stretch for easy movement, as well as a waterproof GORE-TEX membrane for rain protection.

For those who like their apparel more sustainable, Radmor has a lightweight, recycled polyester three-season vest made from a recycled nylon and elastane blend, with a recycled plastic bottle fill insulation.

Step 4: Get More Coverage with Golf Outerwear

Of course, some fall days call for some real layering, and that is when you would be smart to toss a quarter zip jacket from into your bag.

Quarter Zip and Half Zip Golf Jackets

Thanks to a generous amount of stretch, RLX Golf’s quarter zip golf jacket designs, for example, as well as RLX half zip jackets, will move with you, stretching however you need. Built-in moisture-wicking properties keep sweat buildup at bay, too.

Johnnie-O takes their quarter zip jacket designs one step further by engineering UV protection into their fabric. And yes, their designs still are machine washable and resistant to shrinkage. Plus, they include stretch for ease of movement and are able to wick moisture away from your skin.

J.Lindberg has full-zip, lightweight jackets that are made from Ripstop fabric for wind protection and PrimaLoft filling for warmth. They won’t leave you feeling weighed down, and these options are a breeze to pack.

Devereux also has a full-zip jacket, featuring a raised collar, a chest pocket and adjustable draw cords. The design is finished with DWR treatment, offering water resistance to keep you dry during any pop-up rain showers you may face.

Cool Golf Hoodies

But maybe you’re more of a golf hoodie guy? The RLX hoodie for golf has four-way-stretch, moisture-wicking hoodie options as well as more classic jersey designs and washable cashmere if you like to get fancy. Greyson’s cashmere hoodie offering is a wool and cashmere blend that offers breathability, durability for machine washing and natural moisture wicking.

Golf hoodies are a rising trend that won’t be stopping anytime soon. Grab a comfortable hoodie for the golf course and keep wearing it no matter where the day takes you.

Step 5: Stay Dry with Today’s Best Golf Rain Gear

To help you play out the storm, Galvin Green rain gear has a range of pants and coats featuring GORE-TEX Paclite technology. After all, we know you are committed to your golf game, and would never let a little rain stop you from finishing a round.

These designs are lightweight with stretch, so you can move freely during activities. But they also provide protection from wind and water without sacrificing breathability.

Step 6: Golf Pants Complete the Look

 RLX Golf Tailored Fit 5 Pocket Pants

Golf pants and golf joggers have come a long way, something that RLX 5 pocket pants exemplify. After all, you want golf pants that don’t hinder your game, whether you walk your 18 holes or ride. No matter your preferred mode of transport, RLX golf pants offer four-way stretch to keep you comfortable and moving with ease, as well as those nifty five pockets, allowing you to stash essentials for easy access.

For those that want to stay on trend, Greyson golf joggers are constructed with a blended knit fabric and a comfortable stretch waist. No matter what your day brings you will be able to move with ease thanks to Greyon golf pants.

Another brand that takes pants seriously is J.Lindeberg. And they have your back when it comes to cooler temps as well. Their bonded micro high stretch fabric lends their golf pants extreme comfort and easy movement. But that isn’t even the best part—J.Lindeberg golf pants also have fleece inside the pants to keep you warm on cooler days.

Golf pants are where Bonobos got its start, because the company’s founder could never find any that fit properly. The solution: design his own with lightweight fabric for comfort, water and UV protection built in and a curved waistband that conforms to the natural shape of your waist.

Rain or shine, chilly or warm, windy or still—no matter what Mother Nature cooks up for your next round of golf this fall, you will be prepared when you layer with the latest golf trends.
