Presidents Cup Uniforms 2013: USA and International Team Outfit Photos

Presidents Cup apparel is always interesting because it gives the USA and International teams unified looks.

This year, the U.S. rocks a familiar alternation of red and white polo shirts, while the International side's clothing has a theme of various shades of blue.

Here is a look at some of the long-sleeved options the teams have, courtesy of the Presidents Cup's official Instagram account:

We'll break down each team's "swag" here. That's a term often not associated with golf, but it is now being used—at least by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick—to describe gear. So just go with it.

Although the red polos are pretty sweet, the black pants that go with them are a bit of a downer from a fashion standpoint. Plus, it's weird to see anyone other than Tiger Woods in a black hat, red shirt and black pants.

Perhaps it will be a rallying point for Sunday's singles matches—everyone rocking their Presidents Cup version of Woods' trademark "Sunday red."

Let's hope the Americans stick with the sweet red hat, white polo and metallic-looking blue pants combination for the most part. It's a hard look to beat.

Captain Fred Couples is pretty much the king of cool, so that only enhances the swagger factor of this USA team and the status of the less aesthetically pleasing uniform option.

On Thursday, though, the Americans have gone with a navy blue polo, which offsets the fashion edge they initially had.

Maybe the fall season will bring a little bit of briskness to Ohio for the Presidents Cup, although Weather.com indicates the highs should be in the 80s until Sunday.

For the sake of the International team's uniform, that might be a bad thing. 

The long-sleeved, sweater-like blue tops are much better than the somewhat depressing lighter shade of the regular polos. 

An alternate version would be ideal, but in both practice rounds and in the team photo, the International side hasn't shown a different look.

Not that captain Nick Price's bunch cares much about how flashy it looks.

On Thursday, the game was upped a bit with a tan sweater vest for some with a white polo and green pants that matched the beautiful Muirfield turf.

The International team is 1-7-1 in this biennial competition, having never won on American soil. No matter how the International squad looks while doing it, capturing the cup would mean more than having the superior uniform.
