Course of Style: Scott’s two pocket look and FootJoy’s latest rainsuit

Last week’s
WGC-Bridgestone Invitational winner, Adam Scott, wore an unusual
two-pocket golf shirt made by Aquascutum
Sunday. The two snap pockets were on the right, stacked, one above the
other like cargo pants pockets, giving them a bit of a youth-culture
twist.

What does Scott put in
there—gum, ball markers, mints? It’s a unique style we
haven’t seen before, but we’ll be watching for it again this
weekend at the PGA Championship.

Extra Dry
Like something out of Ernest Shackleton’s valiant
voyage
, FootJoy’s new
rain gear is being touted as “the ultimate all-weather performance
outerwear garment.”

Introduced this week, the DryJoys Premiere Rain Suit
features a proprietary waterproof system that, according to the
company, instantly beads water and repels it while still providing good
breathability. For additional comfort and versatility, the jacket has
removable sleeves, the pants have removable lower leg panels, and the
fabric contains four-way stretch nylon.

If the sun breaks out or the
wind picks up, three interchangeable layers or liners enable the player
to adapt the suit to changing conditions. The jacket even has a
waterproof scorecard pocket and a system for keeping your club’s grip
dry.

“The Premiere
Rainsuit is designed for players who put themselves and their equipment
to the ultimate test, under variable, often extreme conditions,
” said Whitney Trimble, director of marketing at FootJoy
Apparel.

Suitable for conditions in
Tierra del Fuego, the DryJoys Premiere jacket has a suggested retail
price of $700 with the trousers retailing for $300.
