We are back with the second edition of U.S. Open Fashion Crimes and Dimes. Who nailed it from a fashion standpoint? Who was cited by the fashion police? Here are the best and the worst looks from Day 2 at the U.S. Open.

Darren Clarke (Dunlop)
If Miguel Angel Jimenez is The Most Interesting Man in Golf, then Darren Clarke is the James Bond of the Links. Nobody can shoot 17 over par and look as cool as 007. (P.S. — Clarke has been sporting J.Lindeberg trousers throughout 2015.)
Ryo Ishikawa (Callaway Japan)
Wait, what? A puffy jacket? Talk about effortless style that crosses over the menswear. Ryo looks like he could be hanging out in San Francisco on a crisp June day, rather than a golf course. (San Francisco residents may be the only ones who get that joke.)
Henrik Stenson (Hugo Boss)
Stenson was at it again in this clean, crisp look. The jacquard print added some interest and texture to his well-tailored polo shirt. The grey belt was a smart choice, too.
Alex Noren (Hugo Boss and FootJoy)
Here at GolfThreads, we are suckers for a pair of killer brogues. Wear them, and you’ll likely find yourself on this list.
Jason Day (Adidas Golf)
Our thoughts are with Jason Day as he battles a bout of vertigo. Hopefully, he can answer the bell on Saturday. What a story it would be if he made a run at the championship, and what a pullover he wore early in Friday’s round. The Climawarm Prime Hybrid Pullover from Adidas blends a sporty look with a high-fashion sophistication. Those functional elbow patches are a unique twist, and the two front pockets are a great place to stash hand warmers. Add this pullover to your ‘must-have’ list for fall.
Rory McIlroy (Nike Golf)
Overall, I wasn’t that impressed with Rory’s look today, but these custom Lunar Control 3 kicks were pretty dope. I want a pair.
Brian Campbell (TravisMathew)
Brian Campbell was the sartorial amateur of the day. Campbell is from Huntington Beach. TravisMathew is headquartered in Huntington Beach. Looks like a perfect match in more ways than one.
Danny Lee (Chervo)
These teal striped trousers are the real deal. We’re all in.

Waaaaay too much contrast between the highlighter yellow shirt and white pants.
2004 called and it wants its golf clothes back. I really thought we got past this look.
Fujita was one of our Dimes from yesterday, but his white belt was his downfall today. It broke up the continuity of his look and cut his outfit in half.
Another look ruined by a white belt. Substitute a navy blue or a tonal granita-colored belt for the white belt and this look is a winner.
