The Biggest Golf Fits from the Vegas Desert
I have a 72-hour rule for Las Vegas. Get in and get out within 72 hours or you may not have any money in the bank account and/or a functioning liver. The PGA Tour tempted fate with an extended stay on the Strip. The good news is all players, caddies, entourage members, and officials seem to be accounted for. Another positive was two weeks of killer golf fits. From fall florals and joggers to hoodies and a sneak peek at some new Jordans, the fashion scene in Vegas came up aces.

Sam Burns (Adidas Golf)
If there was a fashion theme for the past two weeks, it was transitional pieces that take us from the warm summer vibes to the crisp fall feels taking center stage. Of course, hoodies are the trendiest layers in the game right now. Not only does this COLD.RDY hoodie from adidas make the transition between seasons a breeze, it also effortlessly moves from the course to the street.
Erik van Rooyen (Greyson Clothiers & ECCO)
If you have been on the fence about joggers on the course, this is the time of the year to give them a go. You get the extra warmth when dew sweeping on cool mornings, yet your ankles can still breathe as the temps rise. There is no better ambassador for joggers on the course than EVR. His Greyson Montauk’s are cut slim and tailored to the perfect length. Dress them up with a luxurious cashmere sweater as van Rooyen did here, or take a more casual and athletic approach by pairing them with a hoodie.
Collin Morikawa (Adidas Golf)
An alternative to joggers is this Pin Roll Pant. There is a bit of late ’80s retro flair with these in a modern carrot-shaped silhouette.
Cameron Tringale (Greyson Clothiers & FootJoy)
When it comes to colors, jewel tones are your go-to’s this time of year. They hold on to the vibrant hues of summer, but in a heavier, more saturated way for the cooler weather.
Justin Rose (Bonobos & Adidas Golf)
Florals aren’t just for summer. Justin Rose proved they remain in bloom even into October. We’re not talking about shrinking violets here, either. The bigger, the better this fall.
Keith Mitchell (Sid Mashburn & FootJoy)
No doubt that the fashion breakout story on the PGA Tour this year has been Keith Mitchell and his classic looks and natural fabrics from Sid Mashburn. Not surprising to see K-Mitch layer up in a sophisticated cashmere v-neck in Vegas. Also, peep the tabbed, wider-leg trousers cuffed to hit just above the shoes.
Tony Finau (Nike)
Wait, what? Tony Finau casually posted a few pics of these Air Jordan 1 Lows in an icy blue colorway. Not surprisingly, they sent shockwaves through the social media world. If you believe the rumors, they will be coming to retail but will likely sell out in seconds and be on the resale sites for 5x the price. I’d stand in line, pitch a tent, and roll out a sleeping bag for these, though.
Rickie Fowler (Puma Golf)
Mapping out a comeback. These topographical prints are getting a lot of play this season. This one from Puma includes outlines of greens, fairways, and flagsticks.
Kyoung-Hoon Lee (JDX)
Speaking of comebacks, we haven’t seen polos with asymmetrical color-blocking on the shoulders for a while. Extra style points for matching the inner placket with the color-blocking.
Patrick Reed (Galvin Green & FootJoy)
From comebacks to redemption. I’ve taken plenty of sartorial shots at Patrick Reed over the years. All of it deserved as he never seemed to give a crap about his appearance…until this year. I’m not saying he is one of the best-dressed guys out there, but he has stepped up his game. He’s also done it by digging into his own pocket and buying apparel and shoes like the rest of us. Granted those $100 polos make less of a dent in his bank account than mine, but you catch my drift. While he has favored G/FORE for most of the season, this is the first time I can remember him rockin’ Galvin Green, and what a great choice. The Maddox looks like a laid-back Hawaiian print at a distance, but it is actually a pixelated design.
Jaekyeong Lee (Descente)
Descente is creating so many interesting fits. Unfortunately, they are nearly impossible to find here in the U.S. It’s time to find that Japanese proxy service.
