Closest to the Pin?


(Property of AP Photo/Morry Gash)

--Phil, along with his stellar play this week, is the undisputed king of pinstripes. I love the solid polo with a pinstriped trouser look for golf. Both narrow and wider pinstriped fabrics are equally fantastic. It is really an elegant way to go and will set you apart from the khaki'd hordes.

--The struggle for amateurs is getting a great pair of tailored pants and heading out to the course, only to ruin them trying to find an errant tee shot or trudging around in a wet area. For that reason, the KC suggests sticking to darker colors: black, charcoal gray, even a nice rich brown. Unless you want to look like Michael Jordan, stick to a trimmer silhouette and go pleatless like Phil, regardless of your waist size.
--One thing I've noticed about Phil's custom trousers is they are the perfect width and drape when you see him from the side, but still offer plenty of room and comfort that you can see when looking at him from head-on. That's where a good tailor can give you the edge...That being said, there are plenty of places to pick up off-the-peg, inexpensive, trim pinstripe trousers suitable for golf. Get creative.

Mr.KC,

I agree. Phil looked awesome this week. How does one acquire the "stellar" Michelson look?

Best,
Prez

All the best,

Phil may have been the Kingpin, but toward the end the pins got to him a bit, not to mention the needles.

Not that there's anything remotely wrong with "khaki'd hordes." Right, Khaki Crusader?

Just curious, KC. How long does it take before Phil starts to feel uncomfortable by your looking at him from head-on?

I only ask cuz I seem to bug him after about 20 seconds or so, but I get really close.

I couldn't agree more. This is a look that really works for Phil. I LOVE IT--with or without a white belt.
