Taylor Moore B your D(r)addy, Cody’s cool khaki’s, how to tame tie dye, the perfect gift for when you act like a donkey, and horrifying tales from the Snake Pit. Grab yourself a martini (shaken, not stirred) and an old-school neon yellow marker to take notes because GolfThreads is dropping all the golf fashion highlights from the Valspar Championship.
Taylor Moore (B.Draddy & FootJoy)
Taylor Moore is very underrated from a style standpoint. The fit of his clothing is always on point. Moore takes a simple approach to his golfing wardrobe (I’ve never seen him in a printed polo) preferring B.Draddy’s striped and plain tops paired with perfectly tailored Redvanly Trousers. Mix in an exotic skin belt and the FootJoy Tarlow’s with their calfskin leather and Moore B your D(r)addy.
Cody Gribble (B.Draddy & FootJoy)
Off-course my personal style is conservative. I prefer sweaters, golf shirts, loafers, and khakis. Although being from Dallas, I do like my cowboy boots, too.Cody Gribble
Oddly, I’ve got a pretty discerning eye for this stuff, and I can say with confidence that Gribble wears khaki pants and striped polos almost exclusively. James Bond said in Skyfall, “Well, I like to do some things the old-fashioned way.” Cody’s adopted an old-fashioned country club style with his khaki pants and preference for apparel that is “classic, elegant and timeless.” It works for him. Cody’s cool in khakis. You know what else is classic, elegant and timeless? The B.Draddy 007 Cashmere Crewneck. You know who else is cool? Bond. James Bond.
Brice Garnett (Donald Ross Sportswear & FootJoy)
Back in the day, if you wanted to get your hands on Donald Ross Sportswear you had to hope that your pro shop carried them. Not anymore! If you love the Archibald Monstera Print Polo you are in luck. Donald Ross Sportswear now sells direct to consumer.
Matt Wallace (J.Lindeberg & FootJoy)
Hypothetically, if we got into an argument on the golf course and you sent me the J.Lindeberg Joel Polo (size Large) as an apology for acting like an ass, I would forgive you.
Gary Woodland (PUMA Golf)
The horizontal stripes tame the tie dye print on this Puma Dye Stripe Golf Polo. If you have yet to try the Puma CLOUDSPUN fabric, I recommend you do so. It is as soft and buttery as anything I’ve ever worn.
Erik van Rooyen (Greyson Clothiers & ECCO)
Is EVR teasing us with new colorways of his signature ECCO BIOM H4 shoe?
Doc Redman (Ralph Lauren Golf & ECCO)
I cannot confirm the above speculation, but I can confirm that ECCO is releasing a new traditional shoe that offers a modern twist to a timeless look. It is the ECCO Classic Hybrid and it might look “old-fashioned”, but it has all the performance you expect from a modern golf shoe. I can’t help but think that Doc Redman would look cool in these…
Also in the news, the second drop of RLX’s Golf Spring 2023 Collection is now available. And for those of you who have been asking, only the Ralph Lauren ambassadors get the double logo, as seen on Tour.
Tales from the Snake Pit
Ryan Moore (TRUE Linkswear)
The legend of the dead golfer and it’s everlasting pursuit of par. A harrowing tale for many of us.
I’ve defended Spieth this season as I think he has stepped out of his comfort zone from a fashion standpoint and looks much better. But this? He looks like a human-highlighter. I know he was given a slow play warning but that doesn’t mean he needed to rush getting ready in the morning. Spine-tingling sartorial selection.
A t-shirt under a polo is a horrifying look!
Want to hear the most terrifying tale? I have never broken 90. I would be honored to be called “Mr. 89.”
