PostSubject: Anyone in the same boat?   Mon Oct 26, 2009 12:54 pm

Hi golfers. I just wonder anyone shares the same boat. When buying golf shoes and gloves, I find I can't get the right adult size. I have to get mine from the children's section, really paiseh Embarassed . Glove quite ok cos footjoy fits me very well but shoes another matter.......so can't go for golf sales. By the way I find playing with one glove is better than two, get a firmer grip, though they say protects the ladies' hands. Any one same feeling?

Nothing to be pai seh about chillipadi. Most of the golf shoes and clothing are made for the ang mohs in size, although there increasingly sizes for asians as there are clubs. I'm guessing you are petite, a word not in their vocabulary. If you have noticed, they have specialty stores for the larger woman instead.

I myself have on occasion purchased clothing from the young adult section, like it can oredi.

Take heart, you are not alone and surely the sales people have seen many like you who have walked into their store. At least you are able to still find the right sized shoes to enjoy the game instead of flopping around the course like Ronald McDonald in oversized ones.

As for the gloves, I think the guys will agree with you more than the girls. But mostly we wear one cos it gives us more feel with the clubs. And the real particular ones will wear the thinner tour versions for even more feel even though they wear out faster and cost a whole lot more (up to $40+).

I almost fall to this category. When I look for gloves, I have to use 21" for FJ. Can't find suitable one from mizuno or any other brand, else, have to opt for ladies size.

For shoes, luckily I still can fit in to FJ's athletics size 6.5. I believe that's the smallest they have.

Dave, you are not alone there. I guess we can share both our gloves and shoes kekeke.... Sometimes consider lucky to be able to find 6.5 size for the shoes we like. lol!

hmmm i have trouble finding stuff that fits me too. i wear US 7, glove size 22, and the smallest men's NikeGolf polo is waayy too big for me. i have to wear a youth large for a good fit. only problem with that is the polo's way too short. can see my belly! haha i have a hard time finding pants too because i like them fitted but the pants out there are just huge and baggy. i'm those guys that wear the slim fit clothes and my body type is pretty hard to shop for.

golf shoes also tend to be a little big and chunky and when i wear them i look like i'm wearing combat boots. haha lucky i found some mizuno golf shoes that were a slimmer in shape.

Quite surprised to know that guys have this problem of clothes / gloves / shoes that don't really fit too!

For me, the problem lies with the clothes... too petite in size... and it seems that whichever "S" I fit into - for pants and berms - are still way too loose... the one time I found a skirt in the size "XS", I just had to buy it immediately... such a chance is really hard to come by!

Anyone has any suggestions where else I can get proper golf attire that fits for my size? If not, am sticking to my current plan B - which is to eat and eat and eat and gain weight so I can buy more clothes that fit... Razz

LOL same problem

hat = my head too big, bought many caps liao, all free size, all too tight and will fall out, finally solve with a Nike TW cap (XL size) bought from Lukewa. Even the GR Titleist cap only for souvenir, that y choose the more funky yellow Razz

clothing = Lukewa Nike XL shirts a bittttttt to small, still looking for cheap and correct size clothing. Cannot find those nice Nike pants in my size Mad

Glove = hand in between 23 and 24, 23 too tight, 24 get loose after a short while. Finally found a 23 FJ raingrip just perfect

Shoe = no problems Smile..only cannot afford to buy Sad

You can try Far East Shopping Centre. There's a shop there called Atmoshpere on the 2nd floor. Outfits are designed locally, so might have size for you. I've bought some guys outfits there and they are of the slimmer fit, pants and tops. Or try also Adidas or Oakley Japan which is under World of Golf.

I find these brands tend to have a slimmer fit. I'm only 1.68, shoe size US 7.5, and glove size 22/23 as well. Some of the tops I have to wear M, so you could have better luck with these three.

wow, we are from the near extinct bleed liao. I also have to go for FJ 21 but lately getting more and more difficult to find. I managed to get the largest FJ junior which fits me well.

As for shoes, same problem because hardly you can find 6.5. I have to go for size 7 and wear thicker socks. Damn....

But hor, the good thing is that I can buy jeans from the kids section in the US. Price is a lot cheaper too. lol!

hey chillipadi, i wish i can go children's section.. but bo bianz.. cannot. and me wear one glove too! i dunno abt the grip, but it's definitely more convenient to take things and take off the other glove during putting. abt my hands.. i've given them up for golf.. it's a choice u have to make.. hehe.. tongue
