Fashion Dimes

Billy Horschel (Ralph Lauren)

Best Dressed of the Day goes to BillyHo. The guy never misses a beat, and he mixes and matches his blues as well as anyone. He is also one of the few players to adopt the neck gaiter as a fashion accessory. Or in Billy’s case, maybe it is a neck ‘Florida Gator’.

Rory McIlroy (Nike)

Rory has been the best dressed of the Nike athletes, and I was stoked to see him break away from the drab olive brown. This berry color is one of the trendy hues for the season, and Rors owned it. While I prefer to pair this color with navy blue, the bone 5-pockets complemented it nicely. I especially liked the hit of light blue on the inner placket.

Abraham Ancer (Black Quail)

Not only is Abraham Ancer making a run at a Green Jacket, but he also joined the Berry Brigade. His traditional-looking polo received a trendy twist with pink and purple feed stripes.

Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf)

Except for the white belt, Rickie’s fit was on-point. While all eyes were on his Jackpot Pants in Amazon Green, he quietly laced up the prototype high-top we told you about a few weeks ago. These kicks appear to feature a Velcro strap on the back to prevent heel slippage and a “PUMA” print in the mid-foot area. Also, rather than a true high-top, they seem to check in at more of a 3/4 height. Stay tuned…

Ian Poulter

Speaking of green pants, Ian Poulter proved that there is a time and a place for everything. Any other week, these green, yellow, and white gingham checked trousers would look like a picnic blanket gone bad. On the fairways of Augusta, they look right at home.

Justin Rose (Bonobos)

Since inking Justin Rose to an apparel contact a couple of years ago, Bonobos has gone all-in on rose prints. The cool aspect of this one is that it looks like a pattern you would have found on a foulard necktie in the ‘80s. The rich burgundy color is perfect for autumn.

Matt Wallace (J.Lindeberg)

There is always room for the classics. J.Lindeberg’s Bruce Polo with a tipped collar and banded sleeves offers a modern take on an iconic design. If you are wondering how golf clothes should fit, follow Matt Wallace’s tailoring.

Shugo Imahira

A different colorway of the same print that earned Imahira a dime yesterday. If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.


Fashion Crimes

Hideki Matsuyama

What colorway of the referee shirt would Hideki wear today? If you had blue, you’re the winner! Hideki has committed so many fashion crimes that he is on the GolfThreads Most Wanted List (or maybe it’s the Least Wanted List).

Tommy Fleetwood

I wasn’t sure Tommy Fleetwood could do worse than yesterday’s getup. Guess I was wrong.

Dylan Frittelli

While this isn’t a full-blown fashion felony, it is certainly a misdemeanor. A grey, beige, and white combo lacks any creativity or inspiration.

Matt Kuchar

This isn’t one of Kuchar’s worst fits. I quite like the color of the sweater. The khakis are boring, and the black shoes weigh down the entire look, though.

  1. Really like the Nike berry colour, the rest of their scripting has been horrific. Billy ho never looks bad but Matsuyama never looks good.
