FrontRunners: Dressed to a Tee

<< Back to Robb Report, December 2007

Dunning Golf Performance Apparel (www.dunninggolf.com) cannot fix your swing, but it can improve your appearance on the course. For a fee beginning at $10,000, Ralph Dunning, a tailor in Markham, Ontario, Canada, offers a bespoke service that several PGA Tour players use. Dunning will travel to the location of your choice and fit you for a variety of the brand’s pieces, including polo shirts, mock-neck shirts, pants, and sweaters. If you are concerned with shots and rounds of another kind, consider a Burberry Classic bulletproof trench coat from Fortier & Co. (www.fortierandco.com). The double-breasted coat features a zip-out wool warmer, a checked lining—and four ballistic panels. Fortier, which bills itself as the "premier provider in bulletproof fashion," rel="nofollow" also can customize the coats and jackets already in your wardrobe with ballistic panels or lightweight trauma plates that, the company claims, can stop a round from an AK-47.
