Jon Rahm’s star-spangled assassin Wimbledon attire floors Thomas Pieters. Rightfully so?

Published

on

Thomas Pieters tagged in the Twitterian wit that is Eddie Pepperell (and several fashion houses) for his assessment of the comportment of one Jon Rahm as the Irish Open winner took in the action at Wimbledon.

While golf Twitter’s sharpest needle is yet to weigh in, and while we can’t see the full look, Rahm makes some decidedly bold stylistic choices.

  • Black dress shirt? Bold.
  • Black dress shirt with stars? Bolder still.
  • Black dress shirt that (appears to clash with) gray-black jacket? Taco Bell Fire Sauce bold.
  • Patterned blue tie apparently selected at random? Carolina Reaper Madness stuff.

That said, I’m no menswear expert, and my thumb has certainly slipped from the pulse of fashion. Rahm’s look is, however, well…it’s a look.

What say you, WRXers? (and as always, if you don’t care, why did you click through?)

P.S. The concerned will be relieved to see the plague of sartorial madness has not as of yet affected other top European golfers.

    He clearly put on those dark shades first then dressed himself.

    Still not as insulting a look as Danny Willet in a Master’s Green Jacket.

    Golf commentators writing about fashion is almost as bad as fashion experts writing about golf. Grasping at straws? Click bait? Slowest news day ever?

    Black and grey do not “clash”.

    Blue does not clash with black and grey.

    Patterned shirts worn with patterned ties has long been “acceptable” in fashion.

    If this is “shocking” or “news-worthy”, it adds to the argument that the internet is one vast waste of time. And that Golfwrx continues it’s slide into tabloid-ism.

    Also – as many others would point out – if a golfer (or anyone) dresses conservatively, they’re called “boring” and “clones”. If they then dress more interestingly, they’re called out for that. Ultimately, none of it matters to real life.

    Please, for the sake of humanity, find something better to write about.
    Alternately, please leave the internet blank.
