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," 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.
