Bill Murray has a Golf-Centric Lifestyle and Apparel Brand that’s as Cool as He Is

No, this is not a classic Bill Murray deadpan joke. Trust us on this one.

A known golf-lover since childhood (Murray and all his brothers were all caddies growing up, and all were inducted into the Caddie Hall of Fame) and recognized as an active golfer since his beloved portrayal of Carl Spackler in Caddyshack, Murray recently teamed up with his brothers and Resignation Media (owners of entertainment website The Chive) to bring you William Murray Golf, a line of golf-wear and apparel created with the goal of bringing a little Murray Family fun and irreverence to a traditionally staid and sedate sport.

As Murray’s youngest brother Joel explains, “”Growing up caddying helped us learn about strict adherence to rules and subservience. Caddying also helped us learn we had no interest in either.”

And it’s that indifference to the formalities of the golf world that can be seen in the design elements and styling of William Murray Golf. With a full roster of polos, t-shirts, shorts, hats, and the world’s first golf button-down—which Bill loves and employs as his signature course style–Murray’s apparel line covers all of golf’s sartorial selection with an off-the-cuff mentality and flare. But, just because the clothes are fun and fresh doesn’t mean they aren’t full-on sports wear.

The Murray Tartan button-down—available November 15—is made with the tartan pattern found on the Murray Family Crest and is cut in such a way that it won’t affect your golf swing. With moisture-wicking fabric to keep you dry all day on the links, wrinkle-resistance, four-way stretch, and an ultraviolet protection factor of 50+, the Murray Tartan can easily go from the the office to the fairway without looking amiss at either. The rest of the line–shorts, hats, and t-shirts–all feature many of the same design characteristics, such as breathability, sun protection, and that four-way stretch that allows for supreme ease of movement.

The logo on William Murray Golf clothes is none other than Bill Murray himself, in silhouette and tossing a golf club–taken from his infamous golf-club hucking meme. Other playful design additions include a polo featuring Old Fashioneds, with a few spilled here and there for that true Murray spirit.

As William Murray Golf mentions on its own website, “Golf can be stuffy and somewhat boring. William Murray Golf is about infusing the game with energy and a little irreverence, while still respecting the game. Who says you have to wear a striped polo and play the traditional 18 holes? A new tradition begins.” So snag a button-down, toss in a great cigar, and head out for the green in Bill Murray style. Just try to avoid any gophers.

What is old money style? (Plus, how you can achieve the look)
Adopt Grandpa Core with Old Money Style

There is a new trend hitting the style industry that a surprising amount of young people are driving. While the war between Gen Z and Baby Boomers rages on in social issue and economic discussions, a bridge is being built with their clothing. Grandpa core is beginning to land with the youngest group entering the work world as they adopt pleated pants, suspenders, double-breasted jackets, and loafers. While they may rage against the elites online, Gen Z is adopting the old money aesthetic in an attempt to take it for themselves and change the narrative.

Old money style screams class, sophistication, and luxury. While trends may be full of pieces that adhere to the newest looks that go in and out of style, the old-money look sticks to classic pieces that never age out. It invests in basic pieces that may seem boring and plain but combine together to elevate every ensemble to the likes of JFK, Jay Gatsby, and countless others who defined our style in the 20th Century.

These silver rings for men should be added to your accessories arsenal
Our top picks for silver rings for men

Silver rings for men have always felt like some kind of relic from rebellious '90s rock icons like Steven Tyler, or even early-aughts singers like Chad Kroeger (regardless of where you fall on the "Is Nickelback a good band?" question.) Either that or they usually appear as simple engagement rings under a quick Google search. But, silver rings for men have made a comeback, and they're now seen as the ultimate mark of "fashun." From simple, minimalist designs to intricately carved pieces, there is a silver ring to suit every man's taste these days, whether you just want to add a high-end vibe to your outfit or actually draw attention with an eyebrow-raising accessory.

In terms of affordability, silver rings for men perfectly bridge the gap between stainless steel and gold, meaning you can still look stylish without the ensuing buyer's remorse that usually comes with a hefty price tag. So, what if you don't want to be able to knock someone out with all the accessories that the frontman of Aerosmith sports, yet need something a little more noticeable than a simple silver ring with nothing on it? We've got you covered.

This Tag Heuer F1 watch collab might be our favorite nostalgic throwback yet
TAG Heuer partners with Kith for Formula 1 watch
TAG Heuer x Kith Formula 1 watches

In its heyday, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection was a sensation, with the '80s and '90s seeing commercial success with over 20 vibrant colors. Ronnie Fieg, founder of Kith, a streetwear brand known for items that take us back to the days when life just seemed simpler, is resurrecting these TAG Heuer watches, though they will cost more than the previous timepieces, with the originals selling for between $130 and $390.

With over 3 million sold, these colorful watches carry a deep sense of nostalgia for millennials, who to this day are a generation seemingly obsessed with the past, and that is why these new TAG Heuer watches will probably sell well once again. Plus, Max Verstappen recently wore one at the Miami Grand Prix, and with the 2-time World Champion's face on something, it always sells big.
