It's time to find your white-belt replacement. Plenty of guys on tour, including An, the surprise BMW PGA champion, are syncing the color of their straps with their shirts and/or trousers to create seamless looks from top to bottom. Your next belt should be blue or gray, and it should match your shirt -- not your shoes.Nautica, Hugo Boss, Ashworth Golf, Footjoy, adidas golf
In a very literal interpretation of a motif that's been trending all over the menswear market for the last few seasons, Boo broke out this camo-accented polo Friday at the Crowne Plaza Invitational. I'm not sure how I can applaud guys for wearing modern interpretations of this print, then fault Boo for rocking the real deal. Styling aside, however, this polo is enormous and makes the man look bigger than he is. Your sleeves should not reach your elbows no matter what size you're wearing.adidas golf
I like the polo and I like the pants. I just don't like them together. Orange and red are tough colors to work into one outfit. Keep both shades in your closet, but save them for separate days.Hugo Boss

How does the world's most interesting golfer celebrate his record-breaking 10th European Tour hole-in-one? With 10 bottles of bubbly of course! Well played sir, well played.Bobby Jones
Remember the magic-eye designs Na wore at the Valero Texas Open? Well, he showed up in yet another odd polo on Sunday at the Crowne Plaza Invitational. This time he wore a Spider Man motif that crawled three-quarters of the way around his polo. I'm actually not sure what's weirder: the web design itself or the fact that the pattern cuts off three-quarters of the way across the shirt?Elrod
Not to pick on Na, but ... his pants here are based on a white ground, which creates a very sharp contrast with the rest of the colors in the design and makes an already eye-catching look almost too loud. If you feel like turning the volume up in your own game, but aren't quite ready to go up to 11, try smaller statements based in dark blues or grays for a subtler style that will still turn some heads. Don't sleep on the fit, though; Na's trousers are tailored to perfection.ElrodFootjoy
We talk a lot about how cool dudes like Dustin Johnson and Adam Scott look in monochrome set-ups, but Lowry owned the look just as much as those human clothes hangars ever did when he cued up this all black outfit for the final round of the BMW PGA. This is a solid, strong look from a powerful guy and further proof that you don't have to be a rail to rock this look on and off the course.
Uniqlo was built on the idea of the beauty of basics, so you're never going to get lots of color and pattern from the brand's only golf ambassador. But that's never stopped Scott from being one of the most dapper dudes in golf. Color blocks continue to trend all over the menswear market, and this basic paneled look focused around the blues is one of the best I've seen.UNIQLO, FootJoy
If there was a Week in Style equivalent to kickball's mercy rule, I'd have to stop writing about this fashion MVP since he's so far ahead of his colleagues. Fortunately, no such rule exists. Yes, we've seen those paisley pants before, but the slim sleeve, mini button-down polo feels very new. I've always felt that part of having great style was about re-imaging classic ideas, and Ryo does that in a cool way with this shirt silhouette.Callaway Apparel**Custom Japanese design project for Ryo Ishikawa.
Poulter is another Week in Style stalwart who always works up some cool details to elevate his look and stand out from the crowd. As I've said several times previously, some of Poulter's best looks are his most sophisticated ones, and this is another example. The sweater vest creates a cool tonal layer with a classic reference, his fit is perfect with little excess fabric around the waist or arms and the colorful tipping on the sleeve bands and collar give the whole look a younger, active edge.IJP DesignFootjoy
