More dress shirts on course for Lefty: Mickelson signs with Mizzen+Main



Remember that dress shirt Phil Mickelson wore during his Masters practice round with Tiger Woods? Well, Lefty will be sporting Mizzen+Main’s wares more often.

Mickelson signed on as an official Brand Ambassador of the performance menswear line. Described as a “long term partnership that makes Mickelson an equity holder in the company,” the terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Mickelson is expected to wear a Mizzen+Main performance fabric dress shirt during the second round of The Players Championship.

“I was waiting to find the perfect apparel partner that allowed me to move from the boardroom to the golf course. Mizzen+Main’s performance dress shirts enable me to do that. A big part of why I’m so thrilled to partner with them is I know all my endorsement partners and the thousands of professionals that work at those companies will love this shirt for their day to day too. These dress shirts not only look incredible but are so comfortable and versatile I can actually play golf in them. It’s remarkable to have a dress shirt I can wear from a meeting to the course. The game has changed,” Mickelson said.

Speaking with ESPN, Mickelson said he likes to “be a trendsetter,” and whether you love or hate the look, it’s certainly eye-catching, as evidenced by the discussion Mickelson’s Mizzen+Main shirt garnered at Augusta National.

“Phil is one of the most well-known golfers of all time and loved by virtually every fan in golf,” Mizzen+Main founder Kevin Lavelle said. “Having someone at this level demonstrate so clearly the performance capabilities of our dress shirts while competing is absolutely phenomenal.”

Lavelle also indicated the shirts Mickelson will wear are the same the company sells at retail.

    Golfer used to play in collared shirts and tie in early days, it would be very cool for a retro look, I don’t think he would blame the shirt for a 79

    I wear their shirts to work most days. Probably won’t be golfing in them, but they are great in these Texas summers. Only dress shirts that I know of that can handle the heat very well. Reminds me a lot of Dri-Fit.

    Hideous. Pathetic. You are golfing, not at work. Not that he ever worked a day in his life.

    I have no problem with it. As long as you can swing unrestricted and it’s comfortable, why not? It’s not like he’s wearing a tank top or football jersey . . .

    I predict that this shirt will be shelved rather quickly. If he is worried about sun exposure slap on some sunscreen for gods sake. Cannot ever see this as a new look for golf. Shooting a ton in the Players won’t boost sales either. Definitely a head shaker

    Phil has never been a trend setter. Black shirt black pants black shoes sure gets a lot of attention. Now a white dress shirt wow am I excited. He likes the shirt because it covers the pouch.

    Wife is RN and says that people that convert suddenly like this most likely has had a scare from dermatologist that he is on the verge of skin cancer and not to provoke it by continuing with exposed skin…. melenoma is pretty much a death sentence. If you notice Phil has veins very close to his skin which is usually a sign of someone with a skin type that is susceptible to scarring.

      The gentleman whose wife is an RN is spot on. I had a skin cancer scare about 6 years ago on one of my arms.
      I was watching an LPGA event and I saw the Asian players wearing sleeves. So I bought a pair and tried them and they are great. I just slip them on before I play. They cover your complete arm. They are not at all hot. And I live in a climate that often hits 100*. I have six different colors. I would much rather put sleeves on than sunscreen.

    Not only did you play poorly, you looked dis-disheveled in that shirt.

    Pitiful ugly out-of-place shirt, doesn’t fit correctly. Looks like it binds and is uncomfortable. Maybe they should call it a +7.

    He looks like he’s just finished a shift supervising the fries counter at McD’s.

    There is nothing about that horrific shirt that says “trendsetter”.

    Is it that hard or time consuming to change shirts in the locker room? Does Phil take that many meetings that cut so close to his tee times? This was a fun thing one time for a Masters practice round. Today he shot a million wearing one.

    Add a tie and a Kangol cap for that retro look …. oh, and golf shoes with a kiltie over the laces … 😀

    Phil has never been a great dresser. With that being said, his new outfit will look wonderful with the after work white collar crowd, banging a small pail of culls, and sipping Nattie Lights. From the boardroom, to the bedroom to change into something that’s actually comfortable.I can’t wait to see the new on course PJ’s for the winter months.

    I’m headed out tomorrow with the regular foursome. Will be sporting a dress shirt. And a tie! I would say more but I’ve got to go polish my shoes.

    Just when you thought he couldn’t get any goofier…

    A hideous look that will fail even with the “trendsetting” Mickelson out front. And talk about a shill: it’s 85 degrees today in Florida and there’s Phil in his long sleeve dress shirt, complete with short-sleeve UNDERSHIRT. Good luck selling THAT look.

    Has anyone noticed that Jason Day has packed on the pounds?

      Big time. I do recall him saying around the Masters that having kids doesn’t help.

      Yes, Jason looks a little puffy these days. Too many McDonald’s fries I suspect. Wife is still looking good though.

    $85 for a polo or $125 for a button down. Not in my budget.

    Those shirts are absolutely awful.
