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.
