No matter how many shirts you own, we all have a go-to shirt for every occasion. The go-to dress shirt, the go-to golf shirt and the go-to tee shirt. But what exactly is a go-to shirt? It is the one that when in a moment of hesitation you know you can pull down, put on, and feel great. While go-to shirts rotate over time, a good one will have a solid life span. Maybe it’s the Van Halen concert shirt or the polo you picked up at Pinehurst #2, but either way you know it’s money.
As a lifelong fashion slacker, my go-to shirts have included a tee shirt from my favorite watering hole, a golf shirt I picked up at the Masters and a Faconnable dress shirt my wife found at a thrift store (but no one is ever the wiser). However, since I began writing a golf blog a few years ago, my shirt selection has gone through a Jessica Simpson-like increase in size. Hence, I have ditched all of my go-to shirts for new models.
In complete honesty, I can say QED now totally dominates my go-to shirt collection. On the golf side, the Logan Polo gets the pole position for any big round I am playing. It is straight up money. Ridiculously comfortable, perfectly tailored and completely unique. Seriously, I have 45 really nice golf shirts, and I reach for the Logan every time I can.
As a general rule, I probably put on a QED Francis polo 2-3 days a week. I have about 5 that are logoed with Three Guys Golf so it is my defacto uniform. I love the cotton feel and the fact I don’t have to iron them (I don’t do well with irons and I am too cheap to dry clean). The Francis is great because it is hip without being out of place in an office. Hence I can go straight from work to catch a beer with my buddies.
What about shorts and pants? Yep, we all have a pair of those go-to’s as well and currently my QED Alpine shorts and Park City Trousers are in that mix but we will hit that topic another time. Until then, I will keep looking for those red numbers (phone numbers are now a thing of the past).
