We are very excited to introduce the first ever Luke Roper Golf Collection online and in-store! This fantastic line has been 18 months in the making and here we take an in depth look at the amazing range of golf shirts, knitwear, golf trousers and outerwear on offer from today!
Earlier this year we brought you the news that the hugely popular designer brand Luke 1977 had announced that their first ever golf-specific collection was set to be released for the Autumn/Winter 2012 season - and now it is finally here! The team at Luke definitely know how to throw a party and at the start of July the Luke Roper Golf Day took place to launch this top quality range of golf clothing. With celebrities such as DJ Spoony, Mark Albrighton and bands such as The Enemy all taking part at Calderfields Golf & Country Club in Walsall - the day proved a fantastic success with entertainment in the form of tribute acts, live DJs, a casino and the fire-breathing dancers as seen below! It was a fitting way to launch the new collection - which embraces the slogan 'Duri Mango Ad Percutiendum' or 'Strike Hard Go Large'.
We love the modern range of fashionable golf shirts, from the trendy colour combinations to the attention to detail in every shirt. The Moortown polo shirt is available in six colours and features a funky raised rubber golf ball print on the rear right shoulder and this micro dot print is a feature on every LRGO shirt, alongside the stylish black and red stripe on the right side of each collar. The fabric of the Moortown top itself is a cotton/modal textile mix - with the cotton allowing for fantastic breathability and comfort whilst the modal offers warmth and a resistance to colour fading/shrinkage which makes this a fantastic shirt for on the golf course this Autumn/Winter season!
Further shirts included in the LRGO range for AW12 include the Worcester and Pinehurst styles, each with funky pattern detailing. The Worcester shirt looks incredibly fresh in both the Black/Hot Coral and White/Hot Mint colour combinations and is made from 100% cotton jersey to keep you as comfortable as possible on the course this season. Again with the raised rubber golf ball print, signature collar stripe and famous Luke Lion Crest - the Worcester shirt is instantly recognisable as a Luke Roper shirt and this is sure to look great on the course and in your clubhouse this season! The Pinehurst shirt boasts a trendy all over argyle pattern which is very smart with the contrast collar and cuffs and also features the brand new Luke Roper Golf logo (also on every shirt) with an intricate button in the place of the golf ball of the logo.
The Ridgewood golf pants from Luke have been designed with input from both golf professionals and amateurs and this has led to some clever design features for these great golf trousers. The design team have pioneered a Swing Smooth waist band which shapes with your body as you swing for supreme comfort and freedom of movement, which works together with the added stretch of the cotton fabric to provide an unbelievably comfortable set of golf trousers. These Ridgewood pants also boast three rear pockets - designed wide and deep enough for scorecard holders - along with two side entry pockets to avoid any swing obstruction. Another intelligent feature is the concealable tee holder which can either be buttoned outside the pocket (as pictured) or concealed within the upper rear pocket. Finished with the Luke Lion on the front yoke, these golf pants are available in Hot Coral, Stone and Black and match perfectly with any LRGO golf top.
A piece much required on any UK golf course this season is the Luke Ganton Harrington style golf jacket, which is fully lined and waterproof and is at an excellent price for the Autumn/Winter 2012. With a full, concealed zip and a concealable hood - this golf jacket is a great piece of outerwear and shows off LRGO branding at the left chest, right arm and also left cuff where that famous Lion Crest is displayed. Again designed with the professional golfer in mind, this waterproof golf jacket is a regular fit to give you as much freedom of movement as possible during the golf swing, whilst the jacket is also light enough to pack away into your golf bag and throw on when those inevitable rain showers strike.
An excellent selection of knitwear is also available online today, such as the stylish Argyle patterned Wood Sweater Vests and Stiger V Neck Sweaters and don't forget you can mix and match this knitwear with shirts, trousers and shoes in our handy Changing Room function to build your perfect LRGO golf outfit for this season! Once you have decided on the ideal combination, simply click 'Buy Outfit' and your basket will be updated in one click!
Luke Roper have sponsored European Tour player Mark Foster for many seasons - who finished brilliantly with T5 at the Irish Open earlier this month playing alongside Padraig Harrington in the final round. Mark is a great ambassador for the Luke brand and you will be able to spot the all new Luke Roper Golf range worn by Mark in EPGA tournaments in the near future!

Luke Donald is in action at the 141st Open Championship this week - which is being held at the famous Royal Lytham and St Annes Golf Club in Lancashire - and you may have noticed the current World Number One wearing the luxury performance line from Ralph Lauren, RLX Golf. The brand new collection for Autumn/Winter 2012 has started arriving and the following is some of our favourite pieces along with a preview of what is still to come!
RLX golf shirts are made with highly technical fabrics and are excellent for keeping you as comfortable as possible on the golf course this season. The brand new Multi Stripe Tech pique is made with 95% CoolMax fabric and this features moisture wicking capabilities and a very high level of breathability to keep you dry all day long. This golf shirt is available in two colour ways of White and Black, each with stylish Red tones through the stripe detailing and RLX branding at the neck, chest and sleeve.
The Pocket Stripe Polo Shirt, as worn by Luke Donald, features thinner stripe detailing all over and a fashionable chest pocket which is finished with a classy RLX metallic ID tab. The fabric features micro fibre technology which will also keeps you dry and comfortable on the course and this shirt looks great matched with any golf trousers for a very stylish outfit. The third polo shirt style in the AW12 collection is the Solid Tour Tech shirt which is available in a cool Royal Marine Blue or a smart Grey and this shirt also features RLX's clever CoolMax technology.
Another player to don the RLX brand is the young Italian sensation Matteo Manassero, who is breaking records every other month such as the youngest ever EPGA tour winner and the youngest ever to make the cut at a Masters tournament back in 2010. Now, at the grand old age of 19, Matteo wears the RLX brand with pride and you will without a doubt be seeing more of this incredible talent in the coming years.
The golf outerwear range from the RLX collection which you may see Matteo wearing on tour this season is highly technical but also looks very fashionable. We love the Pocket Jacket which is finished in a classy Grey with trendy, moto-inspired detail down the sleeves in contrasting Red and White. With added stretch for freedom of movement during the golf swing and handy pockets at the front, this full zip golf sweater from Ralph Lauren is an excellent piece for this Autumn/Winter season.

We love the Full Zip Vest which is made in Italy with active Micro Fleece for extra warmth and comfort and three handy pockets at the front and chest. Another top quality RLX jacket still due to arrive is the wooolen Long Sleeve Jacket which is also made in Italy and features technical wool for supreme warmth this Autumn/Winter season.
