WHEN Robbie Williams was snapped on the green, he had the golfing look off to a tee.

He was there in a pink diamond patterned V-neck jumper and matching shirt which could easily have come from Jimmy Tarbuck's jumper drawer.

Let's face it - golfing gear has never had the trendiest image.

We can understand him wanting to get into the swing of things but does he really need to put on the dodgy pullover, too?

Don't worry, Robbie hasn't struck a false note on the fashion front any more than he has with his string of hit singles.

He's merely part of a trend for golfing chic - in all its pastel-shaded glory.

Thanks to the turn-around in the fortunes of knitwear manufacturer Pringle, it's now the height of fashion to be seen with the trademark diamond patterns emblazoned across your front.

Even David Beckham, one half of showbiz's most fashion-conscious couple, has been seen sporting the distinctive design.

Pringle has pulled off a 'hole in one' type feat by revamping the line to make it sexy.

Branching out from the traditional V-neck, Robbie was seen sporting to a men's collection which includes the latest vest tops, tank tops and bold emblems.

The women's wear features the trendy turtleneck, batwing and pussy bow styles in lambswool and spun-silk and the body shapes are more closely fitted for a sexier, more feminine look.

Meanwhile sportswear manufacturer Lyle & Scott has a carefully designed collection to ensure you don't fall foul of those notoriously stuffy dress codes laid down by some golf clubs.

They say their gear is 'comfortable, durable and smart enough for the clubhouse'.

Perhaps they should now add trendy enough for the club.
