Throwback Photo of the Day: Babe Ruth dressed to the nines while golfing with his daughter

I knew that Babe Ruth was a golf aficionado. I had heard about his exploits on the links, including a hole-in-one. But for some reason, I never put it together that Ruth would also dress like a golfer. I just imagined him golfing in his baseball uniform, the way Honus Wagner fished in his. But the reality, as shown in the above photo of Ruth golfing with his daughter Julia, is so, so much better.

Look at those baggy golf pants tucked into his socks! Look at his sweater! THE SWEATER.

Babe Ruth was a fashion icon.
