If it is not broken, don’t fix it. That is the sartorial strategy for Jordan Spieth and Under Armour as he tees it up at the 2015 U.S. Open.
We’ve become accustomed to seeing Spieth in cool, confident and well-tailored looks this year, and there was no greater example of this than the blues, purples and grays that he sported during his Masters victory. These flat grays make an appearance in his apparel script again at Chambers Bay, and they form the foundation of positively patriotic color palette.
If you are looking for a showcase piece in Spieth’s U.S. Open gear, then check out his waistline. On Saturday he will sport a new braided belt from Under Armour that he has worn from time to time this year — most notably during his victory at the Valspar Championship. After receiving many questions about this belt, I’m happy to say that the long wait is almost over. Under Armour plans to release it on July 1st, and it will retail for $40.
One other note on Spieth’s belts for the U.S. Open. He will not wear the camo printed UA Range Webbed Belt on Friday that is wearing in his apparel script image. He will replace it with the same white Webbed Belt that he will wear on Thursday, which is unfortunate. That camo belt would add texture and a lot of interest to his look.
These braided webbed and elastic belts are a strong trend in menswear and golf fashion. I particularly like them as a way of accessorizing summer outfits, as they offer a lighter look and feel for warm weather months. If there is just one thing to borrow from Spieth’s U.S. Open looks, make it the webbed and braided belts.
Look for Jordan to complete his look every day with Under Armour’s new Limited Edition Drive One shoe. Unfortunately, if you don’t have a pair, you are probably out of luck. Under Armour briefly sold these the week of the Masters before quickly running out of stock. We have in-hand pics, though, and a complete rundown of the shoe’s features here.
