Cocktails, heaters, seersucker, and no bull. Yup, sounds like a weekend in NOLA to us, and we’re just talking about the golf apparel. Tour Editor Michael Ruuska recaps the fashion scene from the Gulf Coast.
Cameron Smith (Original Penguin & FootJoy)
Champions, Cameron Smith and Marc Leishman were the life of the party at the Zurich Classic. If you want to be the life of the party consider this cocktail-themed design by Original Penguin. The allover shrimp print brings happy hour to the course. Not only will you look good but you can feel good knowing it is from their Re-Original Collection (sustainable apparel made from recycled polyester). Cam created great balance with this kit by keeping the party up top (hair and shirt) and business on the bottom (a smart pair of herringbone tech pants and the elegant FootJoy Premiere Packards).
Marc Leishman (Kjus & Callaway Footwear)
Our friend, Sam Jones (aka The Golf Fashion Guy) recently did a Kjus unboxing video and highlighted some new fashion-forward styles from Kjus that I was super excited about. Sadly, I learned that they are only available in Europe. Fortunately, there are a few new releases available in the U.S., including this Motion Printed Polo and the Savin Structure Polo.
Pat Perez (William Murray Golf & Jordan Brand)
The Seed Spitter shirt is classic William Murray Golf; a design consisting of watermelons, tequila bottles, shot glasses, and margarita glasses is as laid back as it gets.
Keith Mitchell (Sid Mashburn & FootJoy)
White belts. SO UGLY. The worst combo is a white belt and khakis.Keith Mitchell
That was Keith Mitchell’s response when I asked him his fashion pet peeve. Keith’s partnership with Sid Mashburn has been one of my favorite fashion stories of the year and has all but earned him a spot in our year-end Threadies. No need for a “white” belt (or any belt) with this “stone” Sid Mashburn Seersucker Side-Tab Sport Trouser.
Brandt Snedeker (Peter Millar & G/FORE)
No issues with this Peter Millar belt and pair of khakis. As much as I love the camo version of the G/FORE MG4+ kicks, I felt like it was a curious pairing with this outfit. A simple pair of Gallivanter shoes like these would’ve been a much better choice.
Adam Schenk (Under Armour & FootJoy)
And if you are looking for a killer braided belt to wear with navy, follow the lead of Adam Schenk and pick up something like this one from Druh Belts.
Wyndham Clark (Nike Golf)
Hopefully, Wyndham Clark’s muddy polo shirt doesn’t give the designers at Nike any ideas. Clark received a pair of Montauk Joggers from Greyson Clothiers so he could match playing partner, Erik van Rooyen on Sunday. Methinks a “Thank You” card is in order.
Jon Rahm (TravisMathew & Cuater)
The TravisMathew Heater was one of my favorite polos for the heat and humidity last summer. I love how lightweight and quick-drying it is for a cotton/polyester blend. According to the gang at TM, it has quickly become the go-to for Jon Rahm, too. I was super excited to see that they released the Heater 2.0 in a classic TravisMathew chest-stripe design.
Scott Stallings (NO BULL)
Fitness fanatic, Scott Stallings is fittingly wearing NO BULL apparel and shoes on the course these days. Perfect partnership for my fellow Red Sox fan. This golf collection will be available in June.
Danny Willett (Descente & Puma)
The color blocking on this Descente polo creates a really cool gradient effect.
