Mr. Style weighs in on tour players' vintage get-ups

By now you may have seen photos of of the seven PGA Tour players decked in vintage clothing prior to last week's Zurich Classic. If anything, it was a departure from the standard get-up of logoed golf shirts and plain-front chinos. Whether they pulled it off, however, is a better question for Golf Digest's Fashion Director, Marty Hackel. So we asked, and here was Marty's take.

Keegan Bradley's Tommy Hilfiger clothing made him look like he just stepped off the campus green; Graeme McDowell was dressed so well in his Kartel Apparel, he looked like a character out of Oliver Twist; Rickie Fowler's Puma outfit was elaborate enough he was sweating profusely, and yet somehow he made it look cool; Luke Donald in RLX/Ralph Lauren's black-and-white outfit looked and fit so good he should consider wearing it at the Open Championship this summer; Ben Crane's Hugo Boss outfit featured a really cool vest and plus fours with fabric that coordinated well with his bowtie and newsboy hat; Camilo Villegas looked great in J. Lindeberg. The cardigan sweater really made the look and wearing a necktie tied everything together; Justin Rose looked perfectly at home in his adidas clothing, which were smartly kept in a neutral tone.

What did you think of the group last week? Did they look cool? Did they look ridiculous? Maybe somewhere in between? Let us know in the comments section below.
