In the corporate world, there's not a lot of ways for men to work some color and personal flair into their wardrobe -- that's why there's a big market for flashy neckties and quirky socks.
On the golf course, you can naturally go over the top with color and flair everywhere -- think John Daly's pants or Rickie Fowler's Sunday orange -- or pretty much every PGA Tour player in the 1970s.
But if you want to add a flash of color without blinding your playing partners, one of the best ways to make a fashion statement is to coordinate some colorful belts with your shoes, shirt, or cap (or all three).
Mission Belts has a vast selection of sleek, chic leather belts, including their Solids 40 line ($40). These bright, bold belts will add an eye-catching accent to any outfit.
And the no-holes, ratchet fastening system assures an excellent fit no matter how many hot dogs you scarfed down at the turn.
Best of all, for every Mission Belt sold, the company donates $1 towards fighting global hunger via peer-to-peer microlending. The socially responsible company has made more than 8,000 loans to date.
So pick up a bright golf shirt at the next member-guest and check out the Mission Belt Web site for the perfect match. Sartorial splendor might not help your score, but it certainly won't hurt.
And those dollars add up to help a lot of needy people around the world.
