DUNNING APPAREL: PURPOSEFUL DESIGN FOR PLAYERS

Aug 21, 2019

Dunning apparel didn't get it's start where you may think. In 2001, Founder Ralph Dunning took his expertise in performnace sportswear for cycling and applied it to the golf industy. Their stated goal is to "become the most techincal player specific apparel company in golf." Let's look how they do it.

Dunning Design Philosophy

Dunning's design philosophy is summed up in this quote:

"From start to finish, our emphasis is on fit, playability, and true performance."

They use a unique blend of fabrics in their tops and bottoms that provide movement and comfort without sacrificing fashion.

Dunning Golf Shirt DNA

Each Dunning polo has the same traits that make up their DNA:

  • Fit: a traditional, precision fit that's not too baggy or form-fitting. The fit allows you to move throughout the swing.
  • Fabric: Premium fabrics, like COOLMAX®, are used to make the shirts perform on the course.
  • Feel: The polos have a soft feel, not what you'd expect from a technocal polo
  • Moisture management: Sweat doesn't stand a chance with these shirts. The fabric moves moisture away from the body to keep you cool.
  • Airflow: The fabric also helps promote more natural air to flow through it, further cooling you down.
  • Durability: The COOLMAX® is built into the fabric, meaning it will last the life of the polo.
  • Design: Dunning describes the design of his shirts as "clean, classic, and timeless".

Dunning Golf Bottoms

Dunning shorts and pants are lightweight and are set apart by features like:

  • Single-Needle Stitching: a technique that keeps seams neat, clean, and durable.
  • Four-Way Stretch: move freely with confidence
  • Fit for all body types: Built to look great on everyone
