NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Your grandfather’s ugly plaid golf pants are at the height of fashion right now.

The National Association of Men’s Sportswear Buyers says the hottest new fashion trend for men is golf-style apparel like pastel polo shirts, plaid pants and socks printed with golf ball logos.

Even men who don’t hit the links are donning Izod alligator shirts, saddle shoes and brightly-colored windbreakers in order to look hip.

The fashion trade group claims stylish men are wearing the golf threads everywhere from offices to trendy nightclubs, and top fashion designers like Tommy Hilfiger are incorporating the “golf look” into their clothes.

Media attention on Tiger Woods helped start the fashion trend, and it’s expected to become as popular as the baseball jersey/football team jacket trend seen in years past.
