TOM MORRIS 1848: THE LIFESTYLE COLLECTION
Old Tom Morris would be right at home during the Ryder Cup. As the founder of the modern game, Tom was a four time Open Champion and one of golf’s best innovators. Morris designed some of the world’s greatest courses; manufactured the modern golf ball; and maintained iconic links courses, most notably the Old Course at St. Andrews (Scotland). It was his commitment to the game, standardizing rules and ultimately bringing golf to the common man, which is his greatest legacy.
Old Tom’s legacy and values have moved from the fairway to the fall/winter fashion runway, reflected in the lifestyle clothing bearing his name. The Tom Morris 1848 Collection is an award-winning British lifestyle apparel brand for modern, fashion conscious men who see golf as more than just a game but a gentleman’s heritage and lifestyle. Tom’s values are reflected in the very fabric of the brand. The collection features keen attention to details, striking patterns and the traditional tartan. The new Autumn/Winter 2014/2015 offering showcases the very best of Scottish textiles, knits, stylish blazers, outerwear and accessories.
“We have had Tom Morris’s legacy at the forefront of our minds, his contribution to the game remains prevalent not just in Scotland but across the world. With a nod to his enduring legacy, the unique golf lifestyle brand, reflects what we hope Old Tom would have been proud of,” says TPD International Sales Director Tim Dally. Tom Morris International have partnered with TPD International to launch the brand, which debuted last year. TPD International have designed and developed iconic British brands such as Burberry Golf and Aquascutum Golf.
