A time for firsts in Augusta. South African Trevor Immelman won a green jacket AND our best-dressed at the Majors honor
What he wore: Nike Golf Tour Collection white sphere dry polo with olive detailing and khaki Dri-Fit flat-front tech pants and brown "jeans" belt paired with white and team red Nike Golf Air Tour TW 8.5 shoesWhy it worked: The first thing to notice about Immelman's look is that his clothes fit him. Properly. He's one of the best examples on tour today illustrating it's not what a guy wears, but how he wears it. Oversized polos do not make you a better golfer, but wearing shirts with shoulder seams that sit where they should and having the shirt properly tucked in can make a golfer appear in control.
What he wore: Tiger Woods Collection by Nike Golf UV debossed dark obsidian and sunburst polo with white Nike Golf Dri-Fit flat-front tech pants, signature swoosh-buckled white belt and white and black Nike Golf Air Tour TW 8.5 shoes.Why it worked: Performance polos are the biggest thing to hit golf in years, and here Trevor wears one that's playful--but in a lesson we should all learn--it is not bolder than his game. Immelman isn't afraid of bright colors, but like he shows here, you've got to keep the athletic statement going and dress the body like a piece of golf equipment from head to toe.
What he wore: Tiger Woods Collection by Nike Golf drop-needle polo in green bean and a black washable wool vest with Nike Golf Tour Collection black Dri-Fit flat-front tech pants and black "jeans" belt paired with black Nike Golf Air Tour TW 8.5 shoes.Why it worked: My colleague, fashion editor Annmarie Dodd, pointed out in a recent edition of Golf World that green was the freshest color in the field at The Masters and Trevor does not disappoint. Another big trend this season shown here is the pairing of a mega-watt color against black. And pay attention to Immelman's vest; it's also not oversized, a fit that keeps his look sporty and elegant.
__What he wore:__Nike Golf Tour Collection black Dri-Fit stretch polo with contrast collar stitching and a black washable wool vest with birch-colored flat-front tech pants and black Nike Golf Air Tour TW 8.5 shoes.Why it worked: The Man in Black, 2.0. Gary Player wasn't in the gallery to see his protégé, but he was there in mind and spirit. The neutral combination of black and khaki is classic menswear and golf wear because it's comfortable to wear and appropriate in nearly every setting. Including the Butler Cabin.
