JT mixes and matches brands to perfection, Justin Rose leads in more cool blues, Poulter’s plaid, fire footwear, and more. Greg breaks down the best and worst fits from the second round of the 2021 Masters.
Justin Thomas (Greyson Clothiers, Kjus & FootJoy)
It has been fun watching Justin Thomas mix and match brands throughout his apparel free agency the last few months. Although he has been leaning heavily into Greyson, he has quietly worked in pants and outerwear pieces from Kjus. Friday, he paired Kjus trousers with a classic striped polo from Greyson. Keep in mind, a couple of years ago, Kjus was acquired by Acushnet, which also owns FootJoy and Titleist, two of JT’s sponsors. If you haven’t tried Kjus pants, they are incredible—high tech, stretchy, and resist dirt and water.
Abraham Ancer (Black Quail Apparel & FootJoy)
This isn’t the first time we’ve highlighted Black Quail’s La Flecha Azul Polo. The micro arrow print brings depth and texture to this sophisticated monochromatic look while the pop of mint green on the inner collar adds another level of dimension. The Todd Snyder x FootJoy Premiere Series shoes were the perfect way to complete the look. Ancer gets the award for Most Underrated Fit of the Day.
Justin Rose (Bonobos & Adidas Golf)
Friday was a ho-hum day on the course for J-Ro, but not in the fashion department. For the second day in a row, he turned to marine blues and greens to find a spot on the style leaderboard. The small, geometric print is comprised of mini sailboats and completely on-trend.
Billy Horschel (Ralph Lauren & FootJoy)
Giving a well-dressed dude more options to work with is a sartorial dream come true. Such is the case when Billy Horschel started adding Polo Golf pieces to his RLX wardrobe a couple of years ago. This paisley printed top from Ralph Lauren’s Polo Golf Collection moved the fashion needle and those FootJoy Premiere Series Tarlows are sick.
Ryan Palmer (Columbia & Jordan Brand)
Footwear continues to dominate the golf fashion scene. Bubba has received a lot of attention for his custom Jordan 4s this week, but peep Ryan Palmer’s bespoke 11s with a dark green elephant print.
Lanto Griffin (Galvin Green & FootJoy)
Galvin Green is known for bold and fashion-forward looks. This one, though, is more sporty and athletic but still hits all the right notes. The fit of the polo and trousers is on-point, too.
Victor Perez (Greyson Clothiers & FootJoy)
We haven’t seen nearly enough green apparel and footwear at The Masters this year. Victor Perez answered the call with Greyson’s Montauk Trousers in (what I believe is) the Eastern Fur colorway. This pant in this color has been my go-to over the past few months. The greenish/blue hue works nicely with navy, which is why Victor’s choice of belt is spot on.
Bernd Wiesberger (FootJoy)
Pink is the color dominating Augusta’s fairways this year and this bubble gum hue from FootJoy is one of my favorites. The all-over print on the Lisle Weather Polo features a mix of sun, clouds, and rain. Here’s hoping for warm and dry conditions for the final 36 holes.
Max Homa (FootJoy)
Same color, different print. FootJoy has really upped its fashion game recently with slimmer fits and on-trend designs. Having young guns like Max Homa sporting your threads doesn’t hurt, either. The latest example of FJ’s apparel rise is this floral print number. A smart choice for spring.
Matthew Wolff (Nike)
There’s more to a fit than a polo and a pair of pants. This is essentially the same look that earned Brooks Koepka a style misdemeanor yesterday except for the hat and shoes. So, what’s the difference? Wolff kept it simple with black shoes and a black hat while Brooks’ outfit turned arithmetic into algebra.
Zach Johnson (Kjus & FootJoy)
Checking out ZJ’s script a few days ago, I knew this had the potential to be a dime-worthy fit. The print pushes Zach a touch out of his fashion comfort zone, but what really makes this look are the grey saddle shoes that sync with his trousers.
Ian Poulter (Custom Apparel & FootJoy)
I get it; Ian Poulter has one of the most polarizing personalities and wardrobes in professional golf. At times, his outfits border on being costumes. The Masters is golf’s biggest and brightest stage, so why not make a bold statement. Besides, there is a time and a place for certain statements and these pants and shoes play nicely at Augusta.
Plenty of celebrity sightings this week, most of which have been NFL quarterbacks. Call me biased now that Ryan Fitzpatrick was just picked up by my Washington Football Team, but this is a strong spectator fit. Leave the golf clothes at home when you roll out to the next tourney. No one is going to ask you to play. Instead opt for a seersucker button-down in a colorful spring pattern, a Yeti trucker cap, and casual Adidas kicks. Glorious facial hair is optional.
You could lop off three inches from the bottom of Brian Harman’s trousers and they would still be too long. Not to mention, the legs are as wide as a 747, and the rise is too low. Did he grab these from the 1998 section of his closet? Brian, hit me up. Give me ten minutes and a good tailor and I’ll have you back on track.
The only things more awkward than watching Brooks read putts this week were his outfits. Friday was another miss with a (mostly) monochromatic white get-up finished with flat grey shoes and a highlighter pink cap. Cringe. In all seriousness, I hope Brooks continues to recover well from his recent knee surgery.
It’s official; Adam Scott has the style yips. On any day, he can bust out a dime-worthy fit, but the first two days at Augusta have been shaky, to say the least.
