Every now and then there comes an event that requires one to put almost everything else on hold. For me right now that is the 2013 US Open at Merion Golf Club. I am in the fortunate position that I live only a few miles from the course and I am also volunteering as a hole marshal so I have spent considerable time on the grounds this week. On Monday I pretty much felt like I was on the set of Jumanji, torrential rain started the day off. You can see in the photos below how strong the storm surge was, the water only continued to recede. Upon conclusion of the storm an army of groundskeepers descended upon the course pumping out bunkers, squeegeeing off fairways, clearing debris etc…
And then in contrast, the weather on Wednesday was flawless…
But enough of the mise en scene of the legendary Merion Gold Club. Onto the style.
And now for the spectators. Oh, there were some gems… A little disappointing, to be honest. But luckily, there were some people who actually dressed well. I’ll throw in a few comments here and there.
I may only be 15 but these people appall me. I grew up in a poor home, I dont get alot of fancy clothes, but at least I can match. I dont think 90% of these people can do that. And to the pic labeled “white trash pt 2” I think she should get a couple brownie points, that was Dale Earnhardt’s number. Dale Earnhardt was the man.
I must say there was some beautiful ladies wearing Burberry rain boots. Both stylish and practical for a muddy gallery.
There were attractive ladies in such boots, but such boots are not so attractive.
Its such as you read my mind! You seem to grasp a lot about this, like you wrote the guide
in it or something. I feel that you just could do with
some % to pressure the message home a bit, but instead of that, that is great blog.
An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.
Great post, saw you’re in the mainline area, any recommendations on tailors? Got an indochino suit that needs touched up or remade and would love to get a great tailor’s opinion.
Paris Tailor in ardmore. Birhan, I believe is his name. His english is not great, but his work and rates are superb, as far as I’m concerned. He gravitates toward a more conservative style so keep that in mind when asking alterations, be assertive with your requests if you need to be. But obviously be kind, he is a very nice man.
