2009 Midseason "Look of the Year" Nominations

It's incredibly tough to pick the best looks of the year so far on Tour. First off, it's easy to complicate everything - moving past whole looks and dissecting down to individual components. We find ourselves doing that a lot here...


Then you have the dilemma of choosing particular looks from your favorite players, when usually the best-dressed guys out there are looking great most of the time. What makes certain looks stand apart? What makes them more powerful or memorable?


Ultimately, it comes down to preference. Are you a fan of simplicity; clean, crisp looks that mean business? Do you prefer the loud colors and graphics of a guy who dresses busier? Do you like more classic, full cuts, or modern, trim designs? Wow, I'm getting winded already.


I know immediately what I'm looking for when I'm thinking "Look of the Year" - it has to be something interesting, a step-up even for a probably already smartly dressed individual. The look has to have a component that is utilized in a new way, a bold accessory I can't take my eyes off, perfectly paired (not matched) colors, fantastic layering techniques - it has to be provocative in some way, exciting and most important of all, inspiring.


The looks I chose made me go to my own closet and ponder how I could get a similar effect; made me rethink my existing habits, and sometimes go and purchase a much-needed piece to fill the gaps.

Good review, KC. You're obviously in midseason form.

My sister Naria thinks I'm just trying to be funny, but I'm serious.

The other day, my daughter mentioned as I was trying to leave the house, "Dad, lately I have noticed you do not use perfectly paired colors and fantastic layering techniques. Also, your clothing style is not in least bit provocative nor is it inspring. I recommend not leaving the house for a few years until you come back in style."
