RCS Collection: The Tour Visor

The Tour Visor – a.k.a ‘high profile’, ‘old school’, ‘the windshield’, or the ‘crown visor’.  I’ve worn these for years – on the course and off.  Luckily I was blessed with a large head, so these don’t make it look like I’m wearing a hang glider.  I don’t like the low-profile visors, as they look […]

Very nice collection; I could use a couple myself. Did Lawrence talk you into you to wanting those camo ones?

Paul - June 30, 2011 - 8:50 AM

Goes best with a frat shag…

Harry - June 30, 2011 - 9:21 AM

Great collection–I spy The Ocean Course in there too!

Glenn - June 30, 2011 - 9:35 AM

Hey! did you catch the camo golf pants Bubba Watson was wearing at the US Open?

Justin T. Scott - June 30, 2011 - 10:30 AM

Headed to Kiawah for the first time at the end of July. I’m not a huge visor guy, but I’m definitely looking at picking up the 1991 Ryder Cup hat: https://secure.kiawahresort.com/orders/product.php?productid=16627&cat=254&page=1

Will - June 30, 2011 - 12:03 PM

JRS,
I’ve got three questions.
1. The Volunteer Traditions visor looks a little disheveled and flattened in their product shot. Does it come shaped right, or do you have to shape it yourself?
2. Should I feel bad buying these from a course I haven’t played?
3. What camera do you use to shoot the pictures? They are really nice and crisp.

Greg - June 30, 2011 - 7:43 PM

This is a great collection. I have been collecting the high profile visors for about a year now. check out the southern proper golf visor. That was my first high profile visor and it is still one of my favorites. It is difficult to find the high profile styled hats especially since I’ve herd Ping only costume makes them for their sponsored players such as Bubba.
Great post RCS

JRS - June 30, 2011 - 8:41 PM

@Trip – haha…but of course.

@Glenn – I did…not too shabby.

@Will – here you go: 1. The white VT visors are a higher profile than the navy/tan versions. I have experience with all three, and can attest to their quality. 2. Tough call – I freely admit that I haven’t played Augusta National, but wear the visor. 3. Thanks – it’s a Canon EOS Rebel XSi with a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 lens (details here: http://www.redclaysoul.com/?p=136)

@Greg – I do like the Southern Proper visors – especially the Kelly Green golf ones…the Navy blue one is nice too.

Daniel - July 1, 2011 - 11:47 PM

I just hope you are not like me and lost like 10 of these things. I have lost 4 on Bourbon Street alone, haha.

Hunter - July 14, 2011 - 11:17 AM

Huge fan of the tour visors and while I didn’t go to UGA, I like how you are now able to start finding college related ones! Strangely, about a year and a half ago, my sister and I teamed up to start doing some more classically inspired tailgate wear and one of out first products was: http://www.ollyoxen.com/Accessories/NCSU/Visors/visors_NCSU.html

Hopefully one day we can have a little collection going ourselves and can send one your way!

Chris - April 12, 2012 - 6:37 PM

The camo Bubba Watson PING visor is now on sale on Ebay….for $500

Adrian - April 14, 2012 - 5:06 PM

Hi, I would print such regulated visors but for me because they can give an address?

best regard
Adrian

Mike - May 8, 2012 - 1:13 PM

Great collection! I have found some vintage Texace visors at an Estate sale. One of them looks like a very old green Masters visor with a wool patch of the Masters logo and in great condition. I was wondering what you think that might be worth since you said it is like gold.

J Thompson - June 13, 2012 - 3:29 PM

Where can you find that Green Bridgestone visor. Thing is nice.

Ted - July 3, 2012 - 12:16 PM

I have been searching the internet for a Rolex tour visor to no avail. Any idea where I can find one?

Raymond Schwartz - February 19, 2014 - 7:48 PM

Checkout our new Player’s Visor. We have upgraded the tour golfer for the modern gentleman. http://www.southerncrown.co

Hey JRS,

Can we do an updated Visor collection? Maybe new links?

Awesome looking tie, never seen it before. Send it my way!

B. L. Davis - June 29, 2011 - 7:33 PM

If this doesn’t scream New Orleans, I’m not certain what else could. There is a fabulous men’s clothing store off of Magazine Street called Perlis that uses the crawfish as their logo. I used to go there all the time when I lived up the street! It’s a fantastic little gem where only the locals seem to go. If you haven’t found it, you simply must stop by on your next trip to the city. Drop me a line and I’ll let you know of some great little restaurants right around the corner that you just can’t miss either.

T Lundquist - June 29, 2011 - 7:35 PM

Rough Belts

Next time you’re at the course, get a belt instead of a golf shirt.  You can have too many golf shirts – but you can never have too many belts.

Harry - June 27, 2011 - 9:02 AM

You should get a Kiawah belt in there!

Eric - June 27, 2011 - 10:52 PM

Any advice on where to find that Masters belt?!

Josh B - June 28, 2011 - 3:32 PM

I agree. Golf shirts worn too often makes one look like a soccer dad.

JRS - June 28, 2011 - 4:10 PM

@Harry – I couldn’t agree more.

@Eric – Best advice is either in Augusta, or on Ebay.

@Josh – Well said.

BB - July 3, 2011 - 11:37 PM

vineyard vines puts out a great belt at burning tree golf club in md. if only congressional would jump on board. keep an eye out on the bay… there was a nice smathers and branson sea island belt on there a couple weeks back. btw some quality congressional us open polos on the bay now from the us open.

John - July 24, 2011 - 10:59 PM

I’m still kicking myself for opting to buy a shirt instead of a belt when I played Burning Tree, been trying to get one ever since.

The Must Have: A Pocket Knife

I don’t want to call this a ‘Southern’ thing, but carrying a pocket knife is something I associate with gentlemen in the South.  My Granddad always carried one – he wouldn’t leave the house without it.  My dad carries one, has one in his car, and another one in his golf bag (they rotate).  Carrying […]

Casey - June 24, 2011 - 9:01 AM

Buck knifes are my favorite, and in the past I have carried one on me at all times… I have gotten away from this habit as I travel alot (thanks alot bin Laden) but still keep my trusty Buck knife in my car at all times. The thing has saved my ass a couple of times….

Anonymous - June 24, 2011 - 9:42 AM

Love the idea of a post on pocket knives. You’re right, a nice knife truly is one of the marks of a Southern gentleman. Nothing against any of the knives you featured, but with your typical affinity for the finer things in life, it’s a shame that you don’t have a single German knife in the bunch! Then again, we all need a little educating on a few subjects:) Go check out some German-made pieces (watch out for manufacturers who have now moved to China) and I think you may want to do a second post. Take a look at German Eye, Hen & Rooster, and some of the old Kissing Crane knives that were made in Solingen. If you haven’t already been introduced to some of these, they may become your new addiction.

Sam - June 24, 2011 - 9:52 AM

I’ve carried a Leatherman Micra on my keychain for years now. Not only is it low profile (all stainless, pretty small), it actually has a serviceable pair of real scissors on it and a surprisingly strong blade for a knife its size.

http://www.leatherman.com/product/Micra

Gary - June 24, 2011 - 6:48 PM

Great post and I think it is a Southern Gentleman thing. My Grandfather and Great Grandfather never left home without a Buck Stockman style pocket knife. I have their last ones in my possession and treasure both. I’ve got lots of knives mostly Case, Buck, & SOG but it has been a small stag handled Case Eisenhower pen knife that I have carried every day for years. Two blades and very small, use one as a tool on everything keeping the second one sharp for cutting.

Allie - June 24, 2011 - 8:29 PM

Couldn’t agree more–all the Southern gents I know have them! My dad has one that is incredible with a hunt scene carved into it!

JRS - June 28, 2011 - 4:13 PM

@Casey – Buck makes a great product. Yeah – it’s important to leave it at home when heading to the airport. I can’t imagine what the pocket knife stash looks like at any airport.

@Anon – Thanks for the head’s up – I have a few friends that have Kissing Cranes, and just pulled the trigger on an older mini-trapper (hopefully not made in China).

@Sam – I had to dump a Leatherman Micra that I got as a groomsman’s gift when going to a Thrashers game a few years ago. I really miss that thing.

BB - July 3, 2011 - 10:39 PM

highly recommend buck knives. they keep a very sharp blade and were (up until very recently) only made in the usa. great bang for your buck. i currently always carry the standard double (regular blade and sheeps foot blade) in my pocket at all times. very manageable size when folded. the nice wooden finished handle adds some old school charm.

Michael - July 27, 2013 - 11:59 AM

Just like to add that if you are serious about knives you should invest in a good sharpening system, or learn to sharpen free hand. No knife stays sharp for long if it is actually used, even expensive ones with premium blade steels. They will all dull and eventually need to be sharpened. A sharp knife is much safer than a dull knife.

Yep.  My mom and my mother-in-law are the types that like to do their Christmas shopping early.  I get asked – ‘what do you want for Christmas?’ when it’s +90 degrees outside.  As of today, here’s what’s on the list: (L-R from the top left) 1.

I got the Tiffany Belt Buckle as a gift for graduation. Still don’t have a strap for it, any suggestions on where to look?

Jerry Grasso - June 21, 2011 - 10:37 AM

Have two pairs of the Oakstreet loafers. These are gold.

Brandon - June 21, 2011 - 6:00 PM

That Luminox Watch is awesome. I’ve been looking at Luminox watches in the 3000 original series and was leaning towards the blue 3003 but you may have just given me another option!

Casey - June 21, 2011 - 6:09 PM

Sick loafers!

Ken - June 22, 2011 - 1:55 AM

I’m sweating those loafers hard. A definite must-have.

Blanche - June 23, 2011 - 4:18 PM

Found your site @ Col. Littleton’s. Stafford’s, in Thomasville, GA, http://www.staffordscatalog.com, has your watch plus fox stuff. Just a thought.

James - June 24, 2011 - 11:13 AM

Have the watch in blue & couldn’t be happier to have it in the rotation. And the new MMJ album is ridiculous – highly recommended.

BB - July 3, 2011 - 11:43 PM

those loafers are very nice. another loafer suggestion is the classic bass weejuns. specifically jcrew had a very nice penny beef roll weejun out a couple years back from bass. just another thought for the bay. hstockton also has a reasonably affordable belt buckle and straps. right up your alley in atlanta. can never go wrong with brooks brothers straps either. just make sure the measurements are correct. a lot of companies offer 1″ versus 1 3/16″.
