Fashion Dimes

Viktor Hovland (J.Lindeberg)

About 15 years ago, J.Lindeberg was the brand that got me into golf fashion and had me reassessing my on-course wardrobe. Some of my favorite JL pieces from the era were Merino sweaters with deconstructed argyle patterns. I still have a few of them. It was cool how the brand put a modern spin on a timeless look.

Argyle has all but disappeared over the last few years, but JL is once again bringing it back with this modern interpretation and there is no better time or place to reboot it than the 150th Open Championship at the Old Course.

Sheesh! There was no shortage of opinions on JT’s opening round joggers and camo hoodie look. No matter which side of the fashion fence you found yourself on, it was difficult to find fault with his Friday fit. The blue-on-blue kit looked sharp and was topped off (or bottomed off) perfectly with the navy and white FJ Tarlows.

I’m usually not a big fan of yellow but this fit hit different for me. If you are going with yellow, navy blue is the only color pairing IMO.

Bringing California cool to the Scottish shores. Just wish I could snip an inch off the bottom of those pants.

Sergio Garcia (Adidas Golf)

There are bounce-back birdies but how about bounce-back fits? After looking like a human q-tip in round one, Sergio pulled it together for round two, although I give the credit to Adidas. At the U.S. Open, the three-stripes brand’s Legacy Indigo colorway was the best of the tournament. Turn the page to the next major, and this Shadow Green is stealing the show at St. Andrews. I’m digging the green and yellow Baller Cap, too.

Harris English (Onward Reserve)

A slightly different shade of green but equally eye-catching. Harris English puts a contemporary spin on a traditional look with the 5-pocket trousers. Extra points for the matching green belt.

Sam Bairstow (Peter Millar & Nike)

Lessons in layering. If you ever need some layering inspo, the Peter Millar players and their scripts are a good place to start.

Billy Horschel (Ralph Lauren & FootJoy)

No words needed. Just your daily BillyHo appreciation post.

Marc Leishman (Kjus)

Much like Ford’s Model T cars back in the day (and I mean way back in the day) there was a time when you could get golf waterproofs in any color you wanted as long as it was black. Reminder: those days are over. Add some color to your rain gear.

Richard Mansell (Adidas Golf)

Earlier in the week, I mentioned that Adidas usually debuts some fresh layering options for fall at The Open. This Hooded Vest hasn’t hit the shelves yet but should be on your must-have list for those cooler days.

Garrick Higgo (Macade x GolfPoser; FootJoy)

Garrick Higgo showed up and showed out with another stylish fit from the Macade x GolfPoser collab. Macade is an emerging brand that has my attention. The looks are modern, sporty, and a bit edgy while maintaining a healthy respect for the game. Fingers crossed that a few pieces from this collab are in transit to GolfThreads HQ so stay tuned.

Fashion Crimes

I feel like I’ve been one of Poult’s biggest apologists over the years, but he is now a guy that has completely lost the plot. As Michael pointed out yesterday, an all-over print with the logo of your cryptocurrency sponsor is a bit cringy.

No matter what you think about the orange Hooters pants, there is no doubt they are 2-3 inches too long.

White belt plus black base layer. No explanation needed.
