ATLANTA — The PGA Tour has chosen Bobby Jones and Hickey Freeman to outfit both the U. S. and International teams for the 2007 Presidents Cup at the Royal Montreal Golf Club Sept. 24-30 in Montreal, Canada.
The President's Cup is a team-matched competition held every two years featuring 24 of the world’s greatest golfers. The two teams are comprised of 12 members each, with one team consisting of players from the U. S. and the other of international players from countries around the world, excluding Europe.
Each day of the tournament, Hickey Freeman and Bobby Jones will dress both the U S. and International teams for the opening ceremonies, their daily outfits, and closing ceremonies. The teams, captained by Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, include Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Adam Scott, Vijay Singh and many other world class golfers.
Both teams will be dressed in custom tailored clothing and dress furnishings from Hickey Freeman, as well as knit shirts and sweaters from Bobby Jones. Each team’s apparel reflects their respective flag colors. The U.S. team will wear red, white and navy, while the International team’s apparel colors are royal blue, camel and black.
Committee members and honored guests, including former President George H.W. Bush, will be sporting custom-made cashmere sport coats, wool trousers, silk neckwear, and dress shirts. Custom suits for the teams have also been chosen for the dinner with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. In addition, the rules officials will each have unique Hickey Freeman outfits for the opening ceremony. Volunteers working the event will also be in Bobby Jones knit shirts.
Replica team knits will be available for sale in the merchandise shop at The Royal Montreal Country Club in Canada. Authentic team knits will be available for customer purchase in all five Bobby Jones and Hickey Freeman retail store locations, as well as online at www.bobbyjonesshop.com.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
