From Dad 'Fits to Swag 'Fits: A Look at Michael Jordan's Iconic Golf-Course Style
After spending the last few weeks obsessing over Michael Jordan's legacy and his portrayal in The Last Dance, it's hard to imagine him wearing anything other than a Chicago Bulls jersey. But as it became so evidently clear through the 10-part docuseries, Michael is as passionate and competitive about golf as he is about basketball, so we decided to look back at some of his most iconic ensembles while on the green.
Let me first start by saying this man has swag. I'm not talking about someone who lackadaisically Happy Gilmores his way onto golf courses wearing flannels and jerseys (though we know he has plenty of the latter). Even while he was still in the NBA, Michael took his golf game seriously, and that was beautifully reflected in his meticulous polo and sweater vest pairings, his collection of sleek white Nikes, and of course, his plaid pants.
His affinity for bucket hats and striped shorts in the late '90s was basically replicated by every girl on Instagram last summer, and how he was onto the tiny-sunglasses trend in 2001 just shows what an icon he is. The man was ahead of his time. Ahead, check out 12 times Michael's golf course style was a hole in one.
