- As the FedExCup Playoffs kick off in the fashion capital of the Western Hemisphere, some of the most stylish players on TOUR are showcasing the biggest trends to hit the fairways this fall. (Photos courtesy of respective brands)
Justin Thomas (Polo Ralph Lauren)
This is classic American style at its best (see image above). The preppy stripes, soft pastels, and wingtips are in vogue anytime, anywhere. If you think all the young stars on TOUR are into tech fabrics and athletic looks, guess again. Justin Thomas is standing out from the crowd sporting classic looks and natural fabrics.
Billy Horschel (RLX Ralph Lauren)
Horschel usually saves his patterned trousers for the final round of tournaments, but he is making a bold statement for the opening round of the FedExCup Playoffs in these Santorini Foulard pants. The last time you saw this pattern was probably on your dad’s neckties, but it makes a strong, business-like statement on the course, too. While other players are already favoring subdued colors for autumn, Horschel is dialing up his looks with vibrant hues and nautical stripes.
Morgan Hoffmann (Greyson Clothiers)
From the eccentric to the understated, Morgan Hoffmann shows us how to make the complex look simple. He will certainly turn a few heads with the camo pattern on Thursday and the intricate forest print on Sunday, but his best look may come on Saturday. What appears to be a simple white polo actually features a subtle zigzag pattern all over the body and the sleeves. At a distance, this polo will wear like a solid. Up close it brings an added dimension to this super clean kit.
Camilo Villegas (J.Lindeberg Golf)
Remember when Camilo amped up the fairways with high-octane colors and fashion forward designs? Well, recently he’s toned down his looks with more classic colors. At Glen Oaks Club he’ll play in a very black and white palette, but Thursday’s polo with a double chevron design is vintage Camilo. Also, check out those iconic J.Lindeberg belts. They are just as cool now as they were 15 years ago.
Ryan Moore (Linksoul)
Easy and effortless is the best way to describe Ryan Moore’s script. These cotton blend polos and chinos can easily transition from the course to the city without missing a beat. He also has many of the major trends for the season covered with a printed pocket polo, a tonal geometric pattern, and deep merlots and navy blues.
Charl Schwartzel (Kjus)
Charl Schwartzel brings a collection of high tech pieces with classic looks to the course. The best example of this is Saturday’s polo with a modern mélange print, old school tipping at the sleeve hems and chest pocket, and a fabric made from a cutting edge Japanese yarn. Schwartzel rounds out his looks with contrasting sleeves and saturated blues and pinks.
