Keeping the statement piece in check
For the pants of the team’s practice look, Canali has resized the tour’s official tartan to a sophisticated check. Popularized by daring dressers such as Seve Ballesteros and 2014 European team member Ian Poulter, the patterned golf pant is always memorable and easy to pull off the look by following a few simple rules.
Be confident. Patterned pants are attention-grabbing, and they’re supposed to be. So make sure to stand up straight and walk with purpose.
Press carefully. Tartan is made of criss-crossing parallel lines, making the presence of wrinkles particularly unsightly.
Wear a hat. Sporting a matching golf cap will vertically balance out a patterned pant and draw eyes upwards towards your face.
Mix patterns. Make sure to give onlookers some respite by pairing your patterned pants with a white or plain colored shirt.
Play for laughs. Leave the comedy to the professionals and choose a pattern that genuinely suits you rather than something that makes you chuckle.
Wander off the course. Patterned pants look great on the 18th hole, less so in the hotel lobby.
