In a bit of sartorial triumphalism, the U.S. Ryder Cup team dressed like Tigers on Sunday -- red golf shirts and dark trousers, reminiscent of Tiger Woods's victorious style -- and it worked. Their horizontally pinstriped red shirts completed a subtle red-white-and-blue theme for the day.
Anthony Kim wore a white belt with his red shirt and navy pants (right, click to enlarge), completing the patriotic symbolism. But white belts look odd when worn with dark clothing top and bottom. They cut the silhouette in half, calling attention to the waistline. Fashion faux pas notwithstanding, Kim played beautifully.
The European team wore zippered, rather than buttoned, polo shirts all week. For the final day, they chose white shirts with color inset panels, kind of like swooshes under the arms. These looked great on young athletic golfers but a little strange on more grizzled vets, like Miguel Angel Jimenez. (Photo: Fred Vuich/SI)
