The only weapon of mass destruction I''m concerned with is Obama with the flat stick. Roll that rock 44! Can't think of any better way to take a breather from the wild world of Washington than stroking a few on the White House lawn. O has to be worried about the Vice taking the chips though; Biden's 7 handicap trumps the LOTFW's 16. Obama has got the build to wear alot of what we feature on the KC. Someone send that man some cardigans...

If you are a frequent reader of the KC, you probably know how much I love blue. David Toms put on a how-to-pair blue with blue clinic in the first round of the Zurich in New Orleans with his powdery tones. David is from Louisiana, so you know he likes the blues...or maybe he doesn't. But that would really ruin this post so stop being an a%*& about it...
I absolutely love this combination of yellow belt and denim colored pinstripe pant. As I was posting this, I realized this was the first time a lady had graced the pages of the KC, so congratulations are in order for Ali Miyazato. Rarely do I see something that I like this much, I just think the tones are perfect for one another and the light belt brings out the pant/short detail beautifully.
This is the second time in a week I've made a mental note of yellowish/orange belts, in the Style section of the NY Times there was a cool web belt this color paired with a dark suit I believe. I was also at Lindeberg the other day and saw a trouser almost exactly this color. Is my sartorial instinct trying to tell me something? I don't know, but I like it...

And you were wondering why they called it a reverse "C" finish... Well played Mr. Faldo. Simon Hurd's interview below got me thinking about Nick and I nabbed this photo of him in the Open Championship in '84. Like the fit of everything alot here. Stylish fellow in his day for sure, got progressively relaxed as he grew older, the bad sweaters came out, the windbreakers. No one looked better in a turtleneck and a V-neck sweater than Nick did at his height. Loved the socks last year at the Ryder Cup opening ceremonies. For those that missed it, Nick had his Brit-whimsy turned all the way up, sporting socks the color of the EU flag, which really set him apart next to 'Zinger's dull getup. Here at the KC, we like whimsical things. I mean we do spend an awful lot of time discussing golf clothing. We aren't your average blokes. If we were, you wouldn't like us...You do like us right?

Simon Hurd, Creative Director at Druh Belts and Buckles and Asian Touring professional, attended his first Masters this year. The KC tracked down the globe-trotting "Hurdy" for a few quick reflections on the trip.
KC: What was your favorite thing about attending the Masters? Who did you come over with?
HURDY: Just appreciating how hilly the course is and how hard the greens are to read.I stayed with Ian Poulter in his house all week, 8 lads good fun. And luckily flew on Justin Rose's jet back to Lake Nona.
KC: Did you meet anyone you'd been hoping to meet? Who were you rooting on?
HURDY: I was there to see Robert Karlsson to give him some belts and speak with him.I met Arnold Palmer also that was a thrill to chat with him.Rooting for all Europeans but mostly Poulter and Rose
KC: Other than Druh belts and buckles, what is the most stylish/smart accessory you saw players wearing at Augusta?
HURDY: There is a company that makes belts in the USA, (House Of Fleming) they are $500 each and they are fantastic but only a very few can afford them.
KC: Before you became a professional golfer, what golf apparel brands did you buy?
HURDY: Pringle was the style 18 years ago, because of Nick Faldo, so i was wearing that.
KC: Masters Champ Angel Cabrera, stylish player?
HURDY: He has ordered some belts from DRUH so a bit of style. Stylish? No, not really just looks like an [average] golfer not a stylish one.
Thanks to Simon for the time. Cheers and good luck.

My man Ryuji is playing in his first Masters this week and keeping a diary for ESPN. Although, Ryuji, I must say that Am Runner-up Drew Kittleson's diary is kicking your diary's a**. Sorry buddy. Make sure to check that out.
But back to Ryuji, as most readers are aware, I love the experimentation. This look is an example of why. He wears all different kinds of pieces, some, like the trouser above (notice the button-flap) you won't see on anyone else. He does different variations with his belts - braided etc. But what I like most about the look above is everything looks good together without matching. Nothing kills me more than an overly matchy outfit, which is fairly prevalent on tour in the last few years. I don't need the color of the stripe on your shirt to perfectly match your pants, show me a little knowledge of the color wheel here.
