Hoodies are the trendy thing to wear these days. Whether hoodies are appropriate golf attire or not is a debate I hope fades away faster than this trend began. I love a good hoodie, and I’m often found wearing one. Not to be undone, Crewnecks are having a resurgence. B Draddy took the traditional design one step further with a front pouch on its Russ Crewneck. Now, I can’t take it off.

This concept is one I didn’t think would work, but it does. It just does. My hands are always cold. I’ll chalk it up to bad circulation. On real cold days, I tuck them away in my heated pouch. If it’s a cool day, the Russ Crewneck is the perfect outer layer with a front pouch my hands call home between shots. 

I’m not going to hate on the hoodie. It’s a great look and a staple in my closet. There’s also a time and place for a hoodie. Like it or not, it doesn’t work for every occasion. The crewneck lends itself to more settings. I can’t explain why that is or that I entirely agree with it, but it’s true. If I’m looking to accomplish a look between wearing a hoodie and “dressed up,” the Russ Crewneck is getting the call for me. 

I don’t want to lump this in with standard crewneck offerings. It’s not. You get what you pay for with its price tag – premium quality. There’s a flexibility that’s perfect for a golf swing with a style well-suited for a night out.
