About IJP Design Ian Poulter launched IJP Design in 2007 after being unable to find clothes he wanted to wear on the golf course that both looked good and performed well, combining high quality tailoring with technical perfection. IJP Design has created a name for itself as a unique and exciting golf and lifestyle brand with a fashionable edge. The IJP Design brand philosophy is to ‘lead with the legs’ by designing the trousers first and then coordinating the rest of the outfit around them. As such, the Poulter Tartan is also one of the key elements of the IJP Design brand and all the bespoke Poulter Tartans are licensed with the Scottish Tartan Authority. The Spring/Summer 2013 collection is the label’s 12th collection and by the end of the year will be stocked in all 30 golf playing nations around world.
