This is why I wear the trousers
It’s not often you receive an email with the words: “I work with Ian Poulter and his golf clothing line IJP Design … and we would love to invite you to join our exclusive testing panel for his new women’s golf range ahead of the full launch in spring summer 2014.”
Well, that’s exactly what I did receive.
Once I had pinched myself to make sure this wasn’t a dream and then explained how I wasn’t exactly Zimbabwe’s golf swinging equivalent of Kate Moss, it wasn’t long before the IJP bundles of happiness began to arrive at the front door.
The very first IJP Design ladies collection was launched on the 27 September and here’s the thing … I’ve worn nothing else since.
Poulter’s signature tartan pants have been re-created for the women in four soft colours: Raspberry, Taupe, Ultramarine and Golf Ball White. They have taken the tried and tested elements from the men’s range and mixed classic pieces with a stylish feminine twist. And it really works.
I never had myself down as a tartan wearing Zimbo criss-crossing Surrey’s lush fairways.
Watch this space … it’s not just for Ian Poulter anymore.
