(The letter broadcasted at 08/03/2017)
It is with great sadness that I am announcing the closure of the IJP Design online shop, the golf clothing business I started with my business partners in 2006. The business will cease to trade from its website (www.ijpdesign.com) on 2 April 2017.
It has always been our aim to run a unique and high quality product business that reflected my personality and passion for the game of golf, and my love of fashion both on and off the course.
Ultimately, however, we have been unable to justify its continuation after many years of investing in the business and a number of attempts to reshape it against an ever increasingly competitive landscape.
We do not want to close without giving all of our loyal customers and friends, one last chance to enjoy our products and I would encourage you to visit our website to check out our final sale offers.
I would like to sincerely thank you all for your custom over the years, and give you my very best wishes for all your future endeavours both on and off the golf course.

Renowned for his iconic tartan trousers on golf’s biggest stages, IJP Design follows Poulter’s mantra of ‘look good, play great’ by combining style and functionality to create contemporary collections that perform to the highest standards and stand out on the golf course. Over the years IJP Design has established a unique and exciting golf and lifestyle brand with a fashionable edge. The brand philosophy is to ‘lead with the legs’ by designing the trousers first and then coordinating the rest of the outfit around them.
IJP Design are known for the signature Poulter Tartans worn by Ian James Poulter, the collections are created around the four colours in these tartans to perfectly co-ordinate our golf goods.
"It's hard to say goodbye."
“Sad day, own more IJP clothes than normal clothes! I'l'l keep the brand going in my society!”
"Going to miss it. Only brand of clothing I would wear. I've made sure I've got some more before stocks go."
"Always loved the gear and enjoyed playing in it. Will miss it."
"I will keep my tartan trousers as I treasure. Thanks for all!"
