The members of Greyson’s Wolfpack are hitting all the right notes this week. Outfits are either built around tops and bottoms. In this case, Kraft started with the Icon Trousers and went from there. The pin dot pattern is made from small navy blue wolf heads, which sync nicely with the braided belt. The pale pink polo balances against the vibrant blue pants. Peep the navy blue inner collar band which ties back to the belt and trousers. This is next level stuff.

While we are on the topic of tops and bottoms, Sam Ryder traded his Magic Emporium Polo for the same mural print on a pair of trousers in the second round. By now you know this is a must-have print for the season, and it makes an even stronger statement when worn as a pair of pants or shorts. Take a page out of Ryder’s book and keep the rest of your look quiet to showcase the pants.

Matt Wallace (J.Lindeberg)

Is there a more iconic logo in golf fashion than J.Lindeberg’s Bridge logo? I have a closet full of these polos with the big JL logo on the back and I still want more.

Justin Rose (Bonobos)

J-Ro hit on two of our big trends for the season—blue-on-blue and jacquard patterns. The triangle jacquard pattern gives the high-tech M-Flex Polo an element of sophistication.

Gary Woodland (Puma Golf)

Speaking of jacquards, the 3D Knit construction of Gary Woodland’s Alterknit Radius Polo from Puma highlights technological advancements in fabrics. Rather than printing the tonal pattern on the fabric, different threads are woven together to create the pattern. Not only do these knits look cool, but they also have mad stretch and breathability.

John McLaren (Paul Casey’s Caddie)

No looper on Tour can compete with John McLaren’s footwear game. Smurf blue Air Jordan 1s + The Players 17th Hole View Socks by Stance = mic drop.

J.T. Poston (Vineyard Vines)

J.T. Poston is making a lot of friends here at GolfThreads with the Titleist Rope Hats and Vineyard Vines X Smathers & Branson Needlepoint Belts. This is how you combine retro flair with classic preppy style.

Ryan Moore

A-B-C. 1-2-3. It sure looks like Ryan Moore is wearing Lululemon’s ABC Pant to me. He must have read our post on the best 5-pocket pants. Ry-Mo is one of my favorite guys to watch on Tour because he marches to his own beat. He has often played without an apparel sponsor, opting to wear what he wants to wear. I just wish he would bring back some of those cardigans and ties.

Justin Thomas (Ralph Lauren & House of Fleming)

If you don’t have a grey belt, get one. It will be one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe. I prefer a lighter weight elastic or canvas for the warmer months, but you can never go wrong with a luxurious exotic skin from House of Fleming.

If you already have a grey belt, grab a brown one. Coffee, chocolate, tan, whatever. Brown belts are trending and the best-dressed dudes on Tour are working them into their wardrobes. Yesterday, Billy Horschel deployed a brown strap with green pants. Today, Cameron Smith gave these navy blue trousers a fresh look by pairing them with a light brown belt.
