Back in black, JT does JT things, and why Tiger needs a
mock Mach 3. Tour Editor Michael Ruuska puts a wrap on our 2019 Masters coverage with this final edition of Fashion Dimes & Crimes.

Dustin Johnson (Adidas)
Dustin Johnson killed it in his grey and black ensemble. The Adidas Ultimate365 Heathered Blocked Polo Shirt was dynamite in its simplicity. Props to DJ for always wearing well-tailored apparel and for pairing it with this gorgeous House of Fleming belt and the ever righteous Tour360 Knit Shoes.
Henrik Stenson (Hugo Boss & FootJoy)
Sometimes I feel like I am too predictable, however, if I am going to give a shout out to a tall, well-tailored alpha-golfer, I better include DJ’s Scandinavian monochromatic rival, Henrik Stenson. This guy always looks money. The subtle pops of color on this kit, not to mention the exceptional fit, make Henrik a Dime in my book.
Patrick Cantlay (TravisMathew & FootJoy)
My 11-year old son has recently discovered ’80s metal bands like AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses, so maybe I should dedicate this to him. Here you go, Wade, “Back in Black” it is…Patrick Cantlay might’ve been the only true monochromatic cat in the club. You cannot go wrong with an all-black get-up, as long as the fit is on point. Patrick, you, my friend, were on point Sunday. Watch out, because the guy from Long Beach is a playa’.
Justin Thomas (Ralph Lauren Golf & FootJoy)
Justin Thomas never looks bad. There is a reason he gets as much GolfThreads love as he does. Speaking of “love,” if you are looking for golf fashion tips, or style advice in your pursuits as a “gentleman caller,” dress like JT. Seriously, either way, you cannot go wrong. Finally, how about Thomas following up Jon Rahm’s near hole-in-one on 16 with an ace? So awesome!
Rickie Fowler (Puma)
Rickie’s signature “Vibrant Orange” seemed a bit muted to me on Sunday. Maybe it was as a result of seeing so much “Victory Red.” In reality, I think it was the heathered-effect added to the very fun, Patch Snapback Cap and the accompanying Rotation Stripe Golf Polo. The Gray Violet colorway version of the Ignite Pro Adapt Golf Shoes might be the sharpest looking golf-sapatos I have seen this year.
Fashion Crimes (sort of)
OK, I might get roasted for this, but what the heck, it is a fashion blog after all. Tiger Woods needs to shave his head. That’s it. I am also follicly challenged so I feel empowered to say this. Furthermore, I will never again say anything negative about the mock neck. Tiger rocks it and I don’t ever want to see him wear anything else. Thank you, Tiger…..
I liked Rickie’s light gray shoes. the Mono kits are always solid but its amazing how different body types wear it better than others. RLX and Peter Millar seem to always win with their scripting. Thanks for doing 4 days of this, it was so much fun to read!
I’m with Jim here…this was a fun read for the week. Saw lots of “wow that’s a sweet kit” and too many “? What the heck is he wearing?” That’s why I love Augusta! Thanks for a great week!
Great work as always. Basically (for the most part) just pick your flavor between RLX, Hugo, Puma, Greyson, Adidas and make sure it’s a tailored fit and you can’t go wrong.
