With the Nike and Puma guys decked out in tie-dye this week, we’re hearing a lot more outfit-driven commentary at the PGA Championship than we’re used to. But there’s one golfer catching more flak than even the craziest tie-dye combinations.
Adam Scott has been wearing tonal neutral looks every day so far, and I am here👏🏼for👏🏼it👏🏼.
Twitter, on the other hand, is not.
As we all know, fashion is cyclical, and Scott is by no means the first player to catch heat for wearing head-to-toe brown. Sergio Garcia a la 2006 takes the cake there. Although I’m not going to lie, dressing like a stick of butter is actually a thing, and Garcia was ahead of his time.
Truthfully, I’d argue that Scott’s look is right on trend too. Tonal dressing isn’t a breakthrough idea — in fact, it’s been dominating the menswear runways since 2016. Yeah, his maroon-ish sweater isn’t the same exact brown as his pants, but they’re in the same family of colors, and they’re different textures, so it works. That’s the key to pulling off a tonal look.
This is an extremely easy trend to master even if you’re not a fashion expert. Take a nod from Scott and find items in your closet that have the same tone — it’s easiest with neutrals, but any color works, really — and pair them together for a trendy, eye-catching look for golf and beyond.
