Fashion recap of Day 2 of the U.S. Open at Winged Foot
FootJoy’s fire shoes, DJ’s vest, Rickie’s hat, and fall colors. We break down the best and worst looks from Friday at Winged Foot.
Billy Horschel (Ralph Lauren & FootJoy)
The biggest fashion story of the week is FootJoy’s new classic-looking kicks. We’ve seen a few players sporting them since the restart, but FJ seems to be in full pre-launch mode with these at Winged Foot. Horschel, who has laced up Icons for years, has been giving these new shoes some serious love on social media this week. This navy and white colorway is striking and puts a modern spin on a traditional spectator style. We can’t wait for them to hit retail.
Dustin Johnson (Adidas Golf)
We are definitely in vest season and no one wears a technical vest better than Dustin Johnson right now. The tailoring is on point and his colors sync up beautifully. If you are using DJ’s look for inspiration this fall, make sure your navy blues match perfectly. This may sound easier than it is as different brands have different shades of navy. The slightest variation can throw off an entire fit.
Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf)
Best lid of the day goes to Rickie and Puma for this Mamaronek City Cap with a vintage script across the front. If you were alive during the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, you likely rocked a Starter cap of your favorite sports team with this font. And, if you were really on-trend, it was corduroy. Safe to say we’ve been on board with Puma’s caps since we saw them at the PGA Show in January. In fact, we a dished out a GolfThreads Style Award to the Puma team for the concept.
Rafa Cabrera Bello (FootJoy)
Lately, we’ve been talking a lot about how to execute monochromatic looks. They are trickier than they seem. (See Phil below.) The danger with monochromatic kits is that they can feel a bit flat. As a result, a little texture, such as the checked pattern on RCB’s placket and white rope on his Titleist hat, goes a long way.
Andy Ogletree (Peter Millar & FootJoy)
I’m always curious to see what the amateurs wear. Most just rock their templated college kits. On the other hand, Andy Ogletree brought a professional-level suitcase to Winged Foot. Both days he unpacked stylish fits from Peter Millar and those new shoes from FootJoy. I can tell this guy has some fashion sense.
Adam Hadwin (Levelwear)
Autumnal hues are in full swing and Adam Hadwin brought some serious fall feels to the course on Friday. If olive green and charcoal don’t get you in the mood for some pumpkin pie and bourbon, I’m not sure what will.
Justin Rose (Bonobos)
Sticking with fall colors, Justin Rose dialed up a great fall fit, too. I’m diggin’ the checked pattern on the chocolate brown pants. Of course, a brown belt would have been a better option than the white one.
Kevin Kisner (Peter Millar & Fresco)
An easy way to elevate a neutral-toned kit is to accessorize like a boss. Rolling out in an exotic belt from Fresco is a boss move.
Troy Merritt (Galvin Green)
In case you haven’t heard, we are all in on Galvin Green’s prints for fall. The Morris, with an all-over print-on-print, is eye-catching for all the right reasons.
It was another howler for Fairway Jesus. Can this be more boring? It looks like butter on Wonder bread.
We’re not sure about Waldo, but we found Jason Day and he borrowed Fleetwood’s getup from yesterday.
Navy blue is the hot color right now, but Phil proves that you can have too much of a good thing. A lack of texture makes everything blend together and look flat…much like his game this week.
Nothing fits correctly. Nothing.
