Presidents Cup - Day 1 - Apparel Watch

Day 1 team looks - quick recap: slight edge to the Americans, which is rare in recent years. I liked the professional look of the gray pinstriped trouser with the bold, red sweaters. Classic.
The International's polo shirts were a bit busy for my taste and I think, in team events, simplicity is going to succeed every time. The Sunday yellow shirts look really clean and fantastic - looking forward to those.
Obviously, fit varied by player and remained fairly consistent with their usual wardrobes on Tour; Camilo had his trademark shorter, bicep-hugging sleeves, Tiger could fit Y.E. Yang in his pants with him, Anthony Kim favored trimmer, younger cuts, Ryo's personal style continues to shine through, etc. etc.
Play-wise, the Americans look tough, but part of the reason why these team events are so thrilling, is you can just never tell...

I liked the Internationals argyle. A little more fun, but still classic IMHO.

I'm with you on the idea, Heather. It's definitely more exciting. I just think the follow through could have been better-looking. Let's face it, captains are putting so much more emphasis on team uniforms now than they used to and that is great regardless of the outcome.
