Ian Poulter’s IJP Design is billing its Autumn/Winter 2012 collection as its most advanced to date. The collection, which is available now, offers a variety of golf apparel from classic tartans in hues both subdued and vibrant to more modern form-fitting European styling.

"We know we make clothes that 'look good' and feel good,' and more importantly, for those who want to 'play great,' our Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection has technical and functional elements designed expressly for golfers and their distinctive movements," said Poulter.

Four different colored tartans are created for each seasonal collection, all of which are licensed under the Scottish Tartan Authority and unique to IJP Design. These tartans are the foundation on which the IJP collections are developed and the basis for which "IJP leads with the legs."

The new collection is the first to promote interchangeable color palettes, enabling golfers to create their own unique outfits by using any combination of styles.

The Poulter Tartans offer a stylish and functional choice with a straight leg shape, signature side splits, internal waistband fastening and bias cut trimmed pockets. The trousers are half-lined in a soft anti-static lining for comfort and are available in Cornflower Blue, Porcelain and Fuchsia.

The Diamond In The Rough sweater offers a new take on the traditional Argyle outerwear. Fashioned from soft, durable merino wool, the sweater's distinctive patterning is available in Grey Cloud, Ink or Ox Blood. Also made from 100 percent merino wool, the slim fit Roll With It roll neck is a distinctive yet understated take on the classical roll neck sweater. Available in stylish Black Watch, it features turn back cuffs.

The IJP Design Tour polo shirt uses Scotchguard technology to wick away moisture and provide lasting softness and breathability. Combined with a slim-fitting design, a long four-button placket and IJP Design branding, the Tour shirt offers a contemporary take on the classic club tour shirt.

Available in the same three colors as the Diamond In The Rough sweater and made from a lightweight, comfort stretch fabric, the Thunderbird shirt offers a unique color-blocked design guaranteed to catch anyone's eye on the course.

The classic golf chino is given a new twist by IJP Design's Performance Slacks. Incorporating a comfortable straight leg fit and IJP Design branding throughout, the trousers are made from a lightweight, water repellent, stretch fabric, ensuring that traditional style is fused with cutting-edge performance, comfort and technical features.

IJP Design has also included in its Autumn/Winter collection a range of items specially designed for the seasonal conditions. The F-1's bonded fleece fabric (available in Pillar Box Red, Jet Black, Midnight Blue and Onyx) is both water repellent and windproof, and comes with a shaped collar to protect against the elements.

The lightweight Aqua-Tech trousers feature an elasticized waistband, Velcro adjusters and full-length side zips, allowing the wearer to suit up without removing his golf shoes. Aqua-Tech shields against harsh conditions and are fully waterproof. And IJP Design's Bionic Base long-sleeved base layer, available in black or white with colored body mapped seam features, ensures comfort and warmth.
