The Tartan Trend gains momentum for Fall, Justin Thomas showcases late Summer florals, Rickie and Bryson play to the home crowd, and more. Tour Editor Michael Ruuska breaks down the fashion scene at The Northern Trust.
Justin Rose (Bonobos & FootJoy?)
Justin Rose did something Friday that he had never done in his golfing career; wore tartan pants! These Highland Golf Pants are part of the Bonobos fall golf line that was released on Thursday. We’ve seen more tartans popping up on Tour this season and this is a trend I am happy to see return. Justin also has been toying with new shoes for the past few months. We saw him in Nike Roshe G Tour as late as Wednesday at Royal Portrush and then he curiously switched to FootJoy for his Open Championship rounds. I haven’t been able to get any confirmation from FootJoy about what he is wearing but my guess is he’s demoing an unreleased version of the Fury 2.0. You can count on GolfThreads to keep you posted as we learn more….
Webb Simpson (FootJoy)
Last week I criticized Webb Simpson for regularly wearing oversized shapeless polos. This week he made me eat crow. His kits at Liberty National Golf Course were a much better choice for his build and the fits were on point.
Jon Rahm (Adidas)
Maybe, just maybe people pay attention to our fashion advice. I’ve said on multiple occasions that Jon Rahm looks much better in the Adidas Beyond18 Five-Pocket Pants. They are much more flattering for his body type.
Dustin Johnson (Adidas)
I haven’t worn the Adidas Adipure SP Golf Shoes yet, but I have been told that they are like pillows for your feet. If they do indeed feel as good as they look, then wow. Just wow!
Justin Thomas (Ralph Lauren)
Justin Thomas being Justin Thomas. One of the best dressed in the game, year in and year out. I love the RLX Golf Purple floral print polo. See how the blue braided belt really stands out against the white slacks? Perfect.
Adam Scott (UNIQLO & FootJoy)
The Adam Scott x UNIQLO Striped Kando Pants are ultra-light and ultra-awesome! He does simple, clean, and classic as well as anyone. And it doesn’t hurt to look like a movie star! Sometimes I think it would be fun to do an entire post pairing golfers with apparel and footwear brands, regardless of affiliation and endorsement contracts. I wouldn’t change a thing with Scott’s footwear. Those custom FJ 1857 Plain Toe Saddles he wore on Sunday are a thing of beauty!
Rickie Fowler & Bryson DeChambeau (Puma Golf)
Rickie and Bryson had a rough week. DeChambeau found himself at the center of a slow play controversy while Fowler was slamming his Mercedes trunk on Friday after a missed cut. Both tried to get a home-crowd advantage, though. Bryson (slowly) stepped out in a personal edition pair of Puma’s IGNITE PWRADAPT shoes with the New York City skyline on the heels. Rickie completed his look with the ‘Jersey’ snapback from Puma’s City Cap Collection. The cool throwback script was a reminder of those vintage sports caps from three decades ago. Look for Fowler to roll into Medinah this week in a ‘Chicago’ version. There’s no word whether DeChambeau will trade the Big Apple skyline for a Windy City silhouette.
