This week was all about pants. Plaids make a comeback, Nike previews its ‘Pale Vanilla’ and Billy Horschel’s fit was peachy keen.
Billy Horschel (Ralph Lauren & FootJoy)
Thank you all for the wonderful feedback on the Billy Horschel Q&A. It was a lot of fun to do. It will be hard to top, but I am working on lining up a few more interviews this season. Drop a line if there is someone you would like us to target.
Billy won Zurich last year and looked like a champion on Saturday wearing these terrific peach trousers. If you haven’t checked out the offering of Ralph Lauren Golf pants, I highly recommend you do so.
Martin Laird (Galvin Green & Adidas)
Martin Laird might’ve one-upped Billy Horschel’s slacks. His Galvin Green Ned Trousers were spectacular and my favorite of the tournament. The key was pairing them with a simple white polo (which allowed the pants to become the centerpiece of the outfit). Normally, I would’ve recommended a more classic looking footwear choice, but I thought the Silver Metallic colorway of the Adidas Tour360 XT paired nicely.
Troy Merritt (Galvin Green & FootJoy)
Troy Merritt wore the same pants as Martin Laird but I thought the red polo was too much with the plaid bottoms.
Ollie Schniederjans (Matte Grey & FootJoy)
At the end of the day, you don’t need flashy pants or a bold polo to look like a million bucks. Sometimes a simple, yet properly fitted get-up (and a nice head of hair) is all you need to get a GolfThreads shout-out. Ollie Schniederjans killed it in the Matte Grey Wetherby polo. I love the all-over-micro-print on this shirt. The well-tailored polo transitions beautifully to the tapered navy slacks as a result of the matching navy belt. Finishing it off with the FootJoy Tour-S? Money!
Cameron Tringale (Greyson Clothiers & Nike)
Speaking of tapered pants, the Wolvestooth Trousers by Greyson Clothiers are the real deal. I never would have thought to wear the Nike Tour Premiere with these pants, but again, another example where it all came together and looked fantastic! The Greyson Wolfpack Polo in Arctic isn’t too shabby either.
Cameron Champ (Nike)
Cameron Champ rocked the Nike Slim Fit Flex Pant in the soon-to-be-released ‘Pale Vanilla’ color option. It is a slightly muted version of their ‘Club Gold.’ He also went with my favorite version of the Air Zoom Victory Tour.
Jason Day (Nike)
Many fans of the Nike Air Max 1 G have commented that they prefer the contrasting swoosh option that Jason Day was wearing. I heard that they were briefly available on Nike.com last week. My understanding is that they will be back soon.
Henrik Stenson (Hugo Boss & FootJoy)
Henrik Stenson continues to pop his collar this season and I am a fan.
Brian Gay (G/FORE)
G/FORE and Brian Gay know that pink is hot right now. Brian looked fresh in his G/FORE polo and Gallivanters with the matching pink soles.
Jon Rahm (Adidas)
Congratulations to Jon Rahm on his victory at the Zurich Classic. For what it is worth, I think he looks best in a 5-pocket pant. It is a better style for his body type.
