Fashion Recap of Day 1 at The 150th Open
JT’s polarizing kit, Cam turns back the clock with a 90’s style anorak, Keith wore ’em best, and more. We break down the best and worst looks from Thursday at St. Andrews.
Billy Horschel (Ralph Lauren Golf & FootJoy)
Billy Horschel’s Liberty Blue RLX Washable Cashmere Hooded Sweater really popped against the biscuit brown fairways at St. Andrews. He was a ray of sunshine in an otherwise drab field.
Marco Penge (Peter Millar & G/FORE)
The black-watch tartan pattern on Marco Penge’s Peter Millar jacket was very apropos for the Old Course.
Justin Thomas (Greyson Clothiers & FootJoy)
I received lots of texts about this kit. It was either love it or hate it. No middle ground. Clearly I am in the former category. I appreciate Greyson’s modern camo black-watch pattern on the Cokato Hoodie. I do think JT would’ve looked even better in white FootJoy Premiere’s with black accents, however.
Cameron Smith (Original Penguin & FootJoy)
If you want a good laugh (re)read Greg’s 200-word rant on 90’s fashion at the end of his recap of the Scottish Open. It was brilliant. Cam Smith’s Original Penguin pullover has a 90’s anorak vibe. In fact, I am pretty sure I had one from L.L. Bean in the early 90’s that looked just like this! And how about this FootJoy x Harris Tweed shoe collaboration? Wow!
Keith Mitchell (Sid Mashburn & FootJoy)
No one wore the limited edition FJ x Harris Tweed Premiere Series Shawbost Packards better than Keith Mitchell. There is just something about theses shoes paired with Sid Mashburn high-twist dress trousers and a cashmere sweater that went together like peanut butter and jelly. Except much classier than peanut butter and jelly. Not that there is anything wrong with peanut butter and jelly….
Kurt Kitayama (Chervo)
Kurt Kitayama’s color-blocked Chervo crewneck looked crisp and clean against his white slacks. Love it.
Garrick Higgo (Macade & FootJoy)
The bomber style collar on this Macade x Golfposer quarter zip is modern, athletic and stylish. And the fine ribbing on the body adds an element of texture that really makes this pullover stand out.
Max Homa (FootJoy)
The all-over print on this FootJoy polo tastefully pays homage to the 150th Open. Like everything FootJoy has been doing lately, it is thoughtful and classy. Bravo.
Want to know the opposite of a tasteful and classy all-over print? Check out Poulter’s pants. Apparently he plans to wear OKX-branded apparel for The Open at St. Andrews. OKX is a cryptocurrency platform. Whatever.
And I thought that Poulter’s pants were horrifying. John Daly’s are downright frightening!
Sergio looks like a walking Q-tip.
What a shot! Next time, however, hang on to the club and toss the sweater!!
The Open Spectators
Hahaha. These two deserve a category all to themselves. Where does one get a shirt like that? Let alone two?! I am speechless. And this couple is amazing!
