Regardless of the temperature, you'll be able to find a combination of garments to suit your needs and your style preferences, assisted by the introduction of the Performance MT Lite Trouser (below left), which is geared to allow the wearer to stay cool and dry in wet and humid conditions.

It does this through being made from a lightweight stretch nylon fabric, offering comfort and breathability thanks to one-way moisture transfer fabric wicking perspiration away from the skin for improved comfort. An anti-microbial finish helps prevent odour build-up while a built-in SPF 50 UV offers protection on the course, too.

FootJoy Marketing Manager Richard Fryer gives you some outfit-choosing pointers
