Imada Money!

Our man Ryuji has been struggling this year, no top tens and just 700k in winnings. All those greenbacks must be going towards hair gel instead of clothing, because he's been a chronic repeat-look offender. (Yes, we know he gets his clothes for free and they aren't costing him any $$, it just made for a good line.) Quick, what's different about the above photo from the linked photo at the British?!.....Yep, you got it - the visor. Good eye. We're looking for interns...

In seriousness, however, this does happen to be that oh so fickle time where players are holding a bunch of the clothing they've worn the previous spring and summer and sponsors have yet to ship them their fall stuff - so naturally we may see some repeats. Ryuji, like all of us, has his favorites and he wasn't shy about bringing some back out - even on the major stage. 

This brings up an interesting point and something that we here at the KC try to live by: help yourself by having a versatile closet, heavy on neutrals, that can easily be worn interchangeably without notice. Of course you'll have your patterns and your more memorable brights - but if you wear the powder blue trousers over and over, people will know it's the same pair of pants - whereas you could fool folks with repeats in black, white, khaki - even gray, etc... Just something to think about. And your versatile golf wardrobe will match those fancy new JL kicks, so we've just answered that question for you too...You're welcome...

Four colors of performance shorts and pants are essential - white, black, gray, and khaki. Any combo of belts and shirts can make those options pop, but they are musts. Must be well fitting though to work. Then any other color options you find are bonuses. Gray has been working for me, whether is a sportier white belt and red polo, or a more trendy lighter shade of gray top with white or black belt. Not to say I don't love my red Polo shorts but like you say KC, that can't be done week in and week out.

One other thing, why does Ryuji's clothing always look to be falling off of him? Is he sagging there? The fits are trim but pull up the pants! Maybe he just has a long torso?

I think Rooj enjoys a little sag. He's a short guy with short legs, so like u said, it may be a visual thing.
