Team USA Ryder Cup Outfits 2014

How to Dress Like: Team USA at the Ryder Cup
The Ryder Cup at Gleneagles was a quite stunning showcase of golf and ever since, we have had multiple requests for the specific items of clothing that both teams wore across the weekend. In truth, the actual USA x Ryder Cup branded attire provided by Ralph Lauren RLX was never available for purchase here in the UK, although incredibly similar garments from the regular Fall 2014 collection can still be found. Featured in this article are also a list of very similar alternatives so that you can still achieve the same looks as worn by Team USA at Gleneagles.
The RLX Quilted Wool Jacket - Friday
This was, without a doubt, our favourite part of any Team USA outfit at the Ryder Cup. Their special edition version featured that iconic red zipper and USA branding on the right shoulder, but the exact same style of jacket can be found in full French Navy right here. The quilted front combined with a tailored fit is a great look and one which all of Team USA carried incredibly well; the less said about the crew-neck sweaters, the better.
The RLX Fleece Gilet - Practice Rounds
This piece wasn't part of the three official team USA outfits, however we saw Rickie Fowler and a handful of others wear the fleece gilet during the practice rounds on Wednesday and Thursday at Gleneagles.
The RLX Cypress Pants - Practice Rounds
Again worn during the practice rounds in combination with the above fleece gilet - the Cypress pants are some of the most popular golf trousers on the market and we love the Foster Blue/French Navy colour co-ordination.
The RLX Explorer Down Jacket - Tom Watson
As team captain, Tom Watson had to wrap up warmer than the rest of his players at Gleneagles and on Sunday we saw that pure white RLX jacket with the quilted, down finish. Only available in black in the UK - but it's still a great jacket in terms of style and warmth and is also much easier to maintain!
The Tartan Golf Trousers - Saturday
Team USA all wore a very subtle tartan trouser on Saturday and the best alternative on offer is certainly the Oscar Jacobson Drew Winter trousers. The Green/Navy tartan look is a winner and the fabric is also perfect for this time of year - heavyweight, warm and comfortable.
The Red Golf Trousers - Sunday
Now, whilst the RLX Cypress pants are not available in red in the UK, you can still get the look with either the Adidas flat front pants in bold red as the best alternative. What might be even better for the Autumn/Winter season in our opinion, would be a pair of Galvin Green August pants in Electric Red. Red can be a tough colour to pull off on the golf course, but we believe wearing brightly coloured waterproofs is far easier than a pair of regular golf trousers!
The USA Inspired Golf Shoes - Rickie Fowler
And finally, Rickie Fowler showed his team colours through his Puma footwear throughout the Ryder Cup. The shoes he wore were the highly rated Biofusion golf shoes finished in white, blue and red - available right here >>
