Masters Fashion Dimes & Crimes: Day 2

Prediction: Tiger Woods will win the 2019 Masters. It is the only logical explanation for this time warp we seem to be in. Big Cat is rockin’ mocks (while getting slide tackled by a security guard), Adam Scott is sporting double pleats, Ian Poulter is wearing Sansabelt-like trousers, and Nike Air Max 1s are the most talked about shoes. I won’t even mention Zach Johnson smacking one off the tee marker on a practice swing or the Jon Rahm hosel rocket. I was recently on a plane. Am I trapped in that Manifest show?

Anyway, here are the Fashion Dimes & Crimes from round two at The Masters. Of course, you’ll only be able to read this if you are in the same weird dimension as I am.

Fashion Dimes

Billy Horschel (Ralph Lauren)

Seersucker and pique; both are perfect for warm and humid days. The puckered fabric and wrinkled texture cause the fabric to be held away from the skin. This allows heat to escape and air to circulate. The same can be said for a pique’s open weave. Horschel combined the two (and added a modern, technical twist) and the result was a smooth aesthetic. He looked like he could be sitting in a rocking chair on the back porch of the Augusta National clubhouse while sipping an Arnold Palmer after his round.

Brandt Snedeker (Peter Millar)

Sneds continues to hit all the right notes. The danger with mixing pastels is possibly looking like an Easter egg gone bad. Brandt is executing it to perfection, though, and nailing the accessories along the way.

Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf)

These triple color-blocked polos are a strong trend this season. The black belt was a smart choice. It made for a smooth transition from the shirt to the pants.

Justin Rose (Bonobos)

Yesterday, we talked about Kevin Na’s windowpane pants feeding into the ‘90s-retro trend taking place at Augusta. Today, it was Justin Rose’s turn to give us a window into his fashion soul with these trousers from Bonobos. I give the nod to J-Ro. The bright blue is a better choice for Spring.

Ian Poulter

We’ll consider this the return of Ian Poulter, Golf Fashion Icon. After shuttering his IJP Design apparel brand a few years ago, Poults moved away from his show-stopping plaids and tartans for a few years, but today he was back to his old sartorial tricks with a slightly different take on the windowpane pattern. Not only that, but he went with the side-tab, Sansabelt-like pant.

Haotong Li and Dustin Johnson (Adidas Golf)

Haotong Li and Dustin Johnson are those tall, lanky dudes that look good in everything. Some guys get all the luck.

Satoshi Kodaira (Admiral)

Simple, great-fitting kit. Sometimes that is all it takes.

Rory McIlroy (Nike Golf)

Of the Nike athletes sporting the ‘90s-inspired Nike Polo, Rory is wearing it the best. You can never go wrong with a basic navy blue and white outfit.

Cameron Smith (Original Penguin)

Everybody is diggin’ Cameron Smith’s looks this week. How fun is this vacation-inspired print?! Perfect for traveling to the alternate dimension that we seem to be in.

Pink trousers can be a bit daring for many guys, but what about a dusty red? We’re ‘all in.’

Fashion Crimes

Adam Scott

It was going to happen sooner or later. I talked about it on the At the Turn Podcast back in 2017 and again while on the Fashion Show Panel at this year’s PGA Show. Pleats are back and we have Adam Scott to blame. It takes a lot to upstage a Tiger mock turtleneck on social media, but Adam Scott managed to do it. I could maybe get behind a single pleat with a tapered carrot-shaped leg, but Scotty went full double pleats on us. Smh…

Tiger Woods

While Adam Scott is stuck in the ‘90s, Tiger Woods is reliving his glory days with these mock turtlenecks from 2005…and IT IS ACTUALLY WORKING! As Tiger raced up the leaderboard, I had an internal debate. Is it worth seeing Big Cat get another Green Jacket knowing that the local muni will be filled with a bunch of middle-aged dads in slim-fitting mocks? Ugh…

Brooks Koepka

Did Brooks get a free bowl of soup with that hat?

White belt victims of the day, Hideki Matsuyama and Justin Harding.

Why does Langer have mustaches on his shirt?


  1. I’ve always supported Nike and thought they were innovative in their fabrics, textures, designs, and even colors over the last few years….but at the years first major and arguably the biggest, they have really really been a major let down. I do appreciate the return of the TW mock neck as a middle aged dad…but between Jason Days window pane shirt, Brooks’ hats, and the lighter snake pattern shoes, I’m very disappointed in the swoosh.
