Does the green jacket awarded to the winner of the Masters make as much of a statement on the runway as it does on the fairway? We consulted fashion expert Richard Blackwell, the author of the annual Worst Dressed List, who rated for us some of the best and the worst jackets given to tournament winners.
Perfectly cut and tailored, the legendary grassy-green Masters jacket is a standout. Simple, stylish and sporty, this flattering coat is a classy and coveted fashion statement that masters the winning moment with traditional flair and finesse.
Would flatter: Pierce Brosnan, Alec Baldwin, Michael Jordan.
To be blunt, bold plaids like this look better as ties or trousers; coats become too busy and loud. yow should wear the jacket, not the other way around. The bottom line is, this is a fine, old-fashioned fabric but a disastrous choice for a jacket. (My apologies to the British, who invented this difficult-to-wear look.)
Would flatter: The Windsor family, most dramatically the Queen Mum.
