Ryder Cup golfing tweed revealed at Gleneagles ahead of contest

A tweed collection created to celebrate the Ryder Cup tournament being played in Scotland has been unveiled.

Harris Tweed Hebrides has created a 25-piece range of clothing and accessories from hacking jackets and plus fours to cufflinks and a hipflask.

The company launched the collection on Thursday at the Gleneagles Hotel, where the world's top golfers will compete for the trophy in September.

The tweed will also be cut into the uniform for the junior Ryder Cup team, who will play in the run-up to the main competition.

Mark Hogarth, Harris Tweed Hebrides' creative director, said: “Our team was set the challenge of creating a tweed that complements the Ryder Cup livery and official tartan, but that also represents the unique blues of the Hebrides.

"Ken Kennedy, our head of pattern design, has created a stunning herringbone design with a colour spectrum of cobalt to aquamarine."
