Mother Nature may have thrown the U.S. Open into disarray, but that hasn’t stopped GolfThreads from dropping a few Fashion Dimes & Crimes on the field.

Fashion Dimes

Luke Donald & Matteo Manaserro (RLX Ralph Lauren)
Ralph Lauren is doing stripes better than any other brand right now, and Luke Donald and Matteo Manaserro proved why.

Scott Piercy & Matthew Baldwin (J.Lindeberg)
J.Lindeberg has always elegantly worked its iconic ‘bridge’ logo into its designs, and this all-over print shirt that Scott Piercy and Matthew Baldwin sported was the latest example of this.

Lee Slattery (Hugo Boss)
Those of you on this side of the pond may be unfamiliar with Englishman Lee Slattery, but he is one to watch. The guy can flat out dress.

Billy Horschel (RLX Ralph Lauren)
Horschel has never shied away from bold pants and this pair ranks right up there with his most daring of selections. Love them or hate them, these macro floral prints are dominating menswear, and BillyHo found himself on trend once again.

Dustin Johnson (Adidas Golf)
The gradient print on DJ’s polo offered a subtle texture that elevated his overall look. The tonal belt was smart and his sleeves were tailored to a perfect length.

Danny Willett (Callaway Europe Apparel)
This asphalt color from Callaway is great for summer. It isn’t as dark and heavy as black, but it has the same effect.

Romain Wattel (Nike Golf)
Great texture and fit on this knit layering piece from Nike. Wattel seems to know a thing or two about style.

Rafa Cabrera-Bello (Oakley)
Speaking of fit, RCB showed us how a golf polo should fit.

Harris English (Peter Millar)
Using color below the waist always has a greater impact. These 6-pocket pants from Peter Millar have a cool, casual feel and a modern fit.

Danny Lee (Devereux)
Danny Lee put it all together. The polo had a nice oxford texture and a ‘not-to-tight-not-to-loose’ fit. The braided belt was on trend and creatively worked in red, white, and blue.

Fashion Crimes

Patrick Reed
Reed gets his pants custom made (and not by Callaway), so all responsibility falls on him for the billowy fit. If you are going with a loud pair of pants, it is best to eliminate any excess material. The white belt isn’t doing him any favors, either.

Wes Short Jr.
Between the stripes and the sleeves, there are a lot of asymmetrical elements that are creating a busy look. The khakis don’t help the overall look, either.

Hideto Tanihara
The white belt victim of the day is Hideto Tanihara. The easiest way to mess up a smooth monochromatic look is to wear a white belt. The hat is pretty fresh, though.

Other News & Notes

Bubba Watson (G/FORE)
Bubba broke out G/FORE’s new Crusader high-top. The shoe is now available for pre-order in an Onyx (shown here) and a Snow colorway. (See also: Bubba Watson Is Rockin’ High-Tops From G/Fore at the U.S. Open)

Adam Scott (Uniqlo)
Adam Scott debuted Uniqlo’s answer to Nike’s blade collar with this shirt that looked more like a henley than a golf polo. We’re guessing that if Adam showed up at Oakmont for the Member-Guest he would have been politely asked to find a more appropriate option.
