But what prompted Ian Poulter to leave other apparel companies and create one of his own?

Ian Poulter was unhappy with mainstream golf pants

Over the years, we’ve seen plenty of unique pants worn by Ian Poulter. All of those designs are the brainchild of his company IJP design. Not all of the designs might captivate a viewer, but if it does one is bound to look it up on the internet! 

“In the early years when I was playing golf, I wasn’t happy wearing products that people were telling me to wear. So early 2005, 2006, we had the plan to look into developing our own brand. IJP design was created shortly after that and what it enabled us to do was show my personality out on the golf course. Create designs, create clothing that I was very comfortable to wear, that I think other people would be comfortable on the golf course wearing as well,” Poulter tells in a video. 

“I saw a niche in the market. I thought the clothes that were available online and available in the shops were really bland and boring and I thought it was time to change it up. What’s very different about IJP Design is nobody else in the marketplace is doing it from a player business perspective,” he mentions. 

Ian Poulter has got a major point there. His IJP Design company is the only one on the market working from a player business perspective. Poulter knows everything about the fabric that a golfer needs to wear in order to feel comfortable on the course, and he’s doing just that! 

The designs are made in Great Britain, and the team does an incredible job of creating unique pants that entice a viewer. Ian Poulter is never shy of experimenting with his pants, and they’ve almost always ended up getting massive interest from the public.
