Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal had an article about golfers wearing knickers. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind when you think of knickers is Payne Stewart. The WSJ story talks about how golfers are looking to bring golf "back to the good old days."
I never see golfers wearing knickers down here in south Florida, but apparently golfers in cooler climates are wearing them. Web retailer GolfKnicker.com has doubled their sales every year since 2001 and this year should end with sales just below $1 million. WOW! That's a lot of half pants sold. It's not like knickers are cheap either, at $50 - $200 each, you really must want to wear knickers to buy them. The GolfKnicker site explains how to properly wear knickers, they sell matching socks, shirts, caps, etc...
I personally like the idea of knickers. Not because I think they are a fashion statement that will get you the ladies, but because you have to have balls to wear them. They scream "I could care less what you think, I'll wear these silly things if I damn well please."
Everything looks better with Hooters, even golf knickers.
