Fashion recap of Day 3 of the U.S. Open at Winged Foot
EVR’s latest fashion flex, Billy’s blues, and stylish ways to wear technical vests this fall. GolfThreads breaks down the best and worst looks from Saturday at Winged Foot.
Erik van Rooyen (Greyson Clothiers)
We are running out of superlatives to describe this guy’s style swagger. Over the last couple of years, he has made joggers on the course a certified vibe and worn bold prints better than anyone in the game. His latest flex? A luxurious cashmere sweater with the silhouette of a stalking wolf. If you think this is strong, wait until you peep his fit for the final round.
Btw, Greyson’s color palette for fall is fantastic. If you are looking to escape the default navy blues, greys, and black for the season, grab a pair of trousers in an Eastern Fur colorway like van Rooyen did here.
Billy Horschel (Ralph Lauren)
We’ve talked a lot about mixing and matching blues. Typically, this is a rather straight forward move and involves pairing a lighter or paler shade with navy. Combining royal blue and navy is a bit trickier, but Horschel made it look effortless here.
Lee Westwood (Peter Millar)
I’m over white pants at this point, but Lee Westwood earns a Fashion Dime thanks to this pullover/hybrid vest combo. This is another example of how multiple shades of blue can be used to create a winning outfit. I love how the color of the zippers syncs with the pullover underneath.
Justin Thomas (Ralph Lauren)
Autumn brings unpredictable conditions and large temperature swings. JT showed us how to pack a golf bag for fall. A stylish color-blocked pullover and tech vest can handle a variety of conditions. You can wear them on their own or together when the temps drop later in the season.
Rafa Cabrera Bello (FootJoy)
We usually praise RCB for his ability to wear bright and vibrant colors, but his fit for round three proved that simple doesn’t have to equal boring. What made this dime-worthy was the subtle details. First, the tailoring is on point. Second, the grey belt matches the trousers to create a smooth transition from top to bottom. Third, the contrasting placket adds interest and matches the logos on his shirt. Fourth, the multi colored stitching on the Titleist hat logo adds an element of depth.
Stephan Jaeger (Criquet)
Another stylish polo/vest combo.
Troy Merritt & Christiaan Bezuidenhout (Galvin Green)
We have these Galvin Green prints on repeat this season.
A real head-scratcher. This outfit begs for a black or grey belt. The white belt draws the eye away from the graphic print on the polo, which should be the focal point of the outfit.
I’m sorry, but if you wear this hat, you will look like a strawberry.
