Fashion Dimes

Collin Morikawa (Adidas Golf)

Favorite fit of the final round goes to Collin Morikawa. I know these pants are a burnt orange in this picture, but on my TV they were a brick red, which provided a unique take on a traditional red, white, and blue look. This had all the elements of a winning U.S. Open outfit. Morikawa just came up a bit short. Something tells me he’ll have his name etched on this trophy at some point in the future.

JT saved the best for last. Throughout the week, we saw many prints that pulled inspiration from Torrey pine trees, but the print on Greyson’s Crown Pine Polo may have been the best of the bunch.

Trophies and luxury timepieces seem to go hand-in-hand for Tour players. It is rare to see a top player pick up silverware these days without flashing some bling on his wrist. Rahm’s big face Rollie is the Oyster Sky-Dweller, which checks in at 42mm and carries a price tag of $14,800. The distinctive feature is the off-center disc on the dial. The inverted red triangle shows the hour at another location–certainly useful for a professional golfer who travels the globe.

Red and black worked well for another guy at the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines 13 years ago. I much prefer Mackenzie Hughes’ interpretation. The red pants created a bold look for Moving Day at a Major. Ping has quietly made some great apparel over the last several years.

Rory McIlroy (Nike)

It was a mixed bag for Rory this weekend. Saturday’s fit was on-point. The purple and navy blue went together as well as chocolate and peanut butter. The contrast sleeves offered a sporty vibe and the contrasting white placket and collar were balanced by the white shoes.

How do you put a modern spin on classic styles? It’s as easy as 1-2-3. Well-tailored 5-pocket trousers. Matching ribbon belt with an o-ring buckle. Trim polo shirt with sleeves that hit just past mid-bicep.

Then again, a modern classic doesn’t have to be limited to solids and stripes. The understated all-over print on Dunning’s Langford Polo is an easy way for the traditionalist to reboot his wardrobe.

Guido Migliozzi (Adidas Golf)

At every major, a relatively unknown player becomes a bit of a cult hero. That guy at the U.S. Open was Guido Migliozzi. I thought NBC was going to give him his own channel on Peacock at some point. “Tune into Peacock where you can stream featured groups and Guido Migliozzi.” The Italian looked sharp and sporty in Adidas’ threads. This apricot-orange polo really popped against the foggy skies.

I checked out the Frederick Polo on the johnnie-O site and I still don’t know if the print consists of orange slices, flowers, or a wheel with spokes. Whatever it is, it’s a fun, casual polo for summer.

Fashion Crimes

I’ve often said syncing navy blues is more difficult than it seems. Hideki proved my point.

You should never leave people wondering whether your shirt experienced a laundry mishap. Full disclaimer; I had several white shirts look like this after sending them through the spin cycle freshman year of college.

Brian Harman

Does Brian Harman just not care? He once again busted out the brown belt with black pants and shoes. That’s a Fashion 101 mistake.

Rory McIlroy

I was pulling hard for Rory to end his Major Championship drought, but this look had me scratching my head, too. It just wasn’t worthy of winning a Major. It felt too whimsical and light for the final round. Btw, was Rory channeling Doug Sanders circa 1987?


  1. I think you got it slightly backwards with Rory. The purple and navy shirt he wore on Saturday was just plain ugly-Nike-weird. It took us several views before we saw enough of the inside of the shirt to realize that he wasn’t wearing a vest. What is the point of a shirt that makes you look like you’re wearing a vest when you can just wear a vest??? The purple shirt on sunday was blah, and the grey in the inside of the plaquette seemed weird with the yellow, but the yellow pants were the best color out there all tournament bar none (CM’s brick red a close second). They looked way better with Sanders’ shade of purple .

    1. Good insights, Larry! I actually like Sanders’ purple better, too. It’s darker are stronger. I’m interested to see those Adidas pants in person to see what the true color is.

  2. Why did you consider Sergio’s day one look a crime based on the color choices? Isn’t Morikawa wearing the exact same color combo?

  3. Greg, did you see the size of DJs light purple shirt on Sat and the same for xander on Sun? It looks like adidas has gone “full fit” bc these shirts were massive and billowing over the belt and pants.

      1. Surprised to see Lee Westwood not on here. Anyone else think he’s been looking very good lately?

  4. Harman & Hideki failed again & I’m all in with Rory’s trousers, maybe I could word that better!😂 The best outfits mostly have the same thing in common- keep it simple. Great report as usual.
