From big baggy plus fours to pink and chocolate checked Pringle jumpers, golfers have been going out of bounds in the fashion stakes since the game was invented – and getting away with it. Tartan trousers, gigantic wing collars, comedy sun visors... out on the fairway anything goes!

Diamonds are Forever! is a photographic celebration of golf gear that's so far out it's brilliant. Charting the chequered history of golf fashion from Victorian times, through the 'flare' players of the 70s, to modern fairway icons like the late, great Payne Stewart, Britain's union jack trousered Ian Poulter and Norman Wisdom hat-wearing funster Jesper Parnevik.

And in 'outing' golf gear-wearing celebrity superstars like Sean Connery, Samuel L Jackson, Missy Elliot, Robbie Williams, Justin Timberlake and, er, George Bush, Diamonds are Forever! proves that somehow fairway fashion has always been, and always will be, cool.
