MR. STYLE: FASHION CRITIQUE FROM THE BRITISH OPEN
WHO WORE IT BEST?
There are three guarantees in life: death, taxes and a plethora of gray hues at the British Open. Beyond that, however, a few players sported looks at St. Andrews that caught my eye. Here
are my best and worst from the week: ( 1) A cool
trend on display was quilted and knit tops, like
Jason Day wore the last two rounds. Tom Watson’s blue sweater is an example of simple color
worn effectively. ( 2) A big pet peeve of mine is a
short-sleeve shirt on top of long sleeves. Louis
Oosthuizen looked good other days (see red
shirt under Best Color), but this was sloppy.
Nick Faldo’s throwback sweaters felt a little too
old. ( 3) Luke Donald is an example of the right
way to wear bright colors. ( 4) John Daly has more
fun than anyone with his outfits, but this St. Louis Cardinals jacket seemed out of place. Bubba
Watson is capable of loud looks, but this was too
much gray! —Marty Hackel
