Luke has been wearing alot of black on tour so far this year, this lavender stripe on black from Thursday is such a great combination - it really produces a rich and powerful shirt, almost regal.
It must be hotter than Hades in Bali right now - as you can see from Magnus Carlsson (right) sweating it out - but Anton Haig's shirt caught my eye for the detailing. (Not to mention the faint pinstripe on the trousers, I really like his whole look) The polo looks alot like Phil's red shirt from last week - kind of that utility polo vibe that is kind of a nice way to switch things up. I've never been opposed to throwing a chest pocket (even two, a la JL's Brantley Fieldsensor) on a golf shirt - it makes things a little more exciting.
Just a few thoughts...stay tuned for the Friday throwback.

I love this shot. It's crazy to think this was 9 years ago now. I remember Jesper winning that Byron Nelson like it was yesterday. He still stuck out in a delightful way at that point. My favorite thing about this shot is the juxtiposition between Davis (who is the stalwart of classic American golf dress) and Jesper (who at the time was ruffling feathers with his too hot for TV JL gear) Great piece of golf history and an awesome testament to tastemakers who are truly ahead of the class. The skinny Swede with the pink pants in the heart of Texas. That'd make a good country song. Enjoy your weekend.

Anthony: "Look KC, what's that up there??"
KC: "Easy AK, that's just GolfWRX on their high horse..."
GolfWRX, the hugely popular golf forum, which, prior to this incident, I was greatly enamoured with, has banned the KC for posting in a few chatrooms (ok maybe 20) about how people should come visit my blog (shameless self-promotion) and mentioning that if they had any golf style questions for Tony Q'aja they should come by and ask them. (Not selfish at all - in fact, quite damn nice of me...) Anyways, the evil dictators over there banned me from all chat rooms and ALL access. So I can't even get on the site or access my profile. Pretty rough I know. I wrote several emails asking to be re-instated, but I've gotten nothing in return but the oh-so-cold shoulder of disregard. If any KC readers would shoot an email to the administrators (and I use that term loosely and with a healthy dose of disdain) over at GolfWRX, I'd greatly appreciate it. Although at this point they probably won't let me back. That, ladies and gentleman, is why I am golf's bloggin' bad boy. Come and get me.
In my last post with the new JL gear, I forgot this Zoan Paclite jacket, which is probably the most badass rain jacket I've ever seen for golf. Granted it doesn't have the cool accents that they've done in the past, (Like Camilo's a few posts back) but the design is phenomenal (Tons of pockets, military shoulder styling, high-zip neck, light button detailing) and can be worn on the course or off. Plus you'll make all your friends with their baggy short-sleeved rainshirts envy you. I think it runs about $250, which considering how long you'll have this thing isn't a bad deal. Comes in black or white.

Since the KC will be taking a little hiatus tomorrow and through the weekend, I had to bring the Friday throwback out on Thursday, which actually sounds a whole hell of a lot better anyway. (I just fired my entire marketing team in a whirling blaze of glory) Anyways, I was checking out this really cool photo of Payne and I realize that it would be commonplace to see Poulter wearing this today - in fact we probably wouldn't even bat an eye. Poulter has that exact shade of blue in his new collection. Perhaps inspiration? Imagine Payne and Poulter in a Ryder Cup match; something we should all have the pleasure of experiencing, but won't. I was also amazed with this photo, because I don't remember Payne's clothing fitting him so damn well. I wish I was older so I could have watched Payne in his younger years. He could have easily looked like he moonlighted at Medieval Times, but he didn't because all this stuff fit him so precisely. He was very serious about his clothing and very interested in upholding the traditions of the game. It never hurts to have another guy like that around.
