A LUXURY FABRIC UPGRADE
Ron Dorff re-imagines iconic menswear staples from the past. An important part of this lies in the fabrics we use. We continuously search for new, premium fabrics whether pure or innovative blends which will make our iconic products even more comfortable to wear.
PREMIUM PURE COTTON
The longer the cotton staple, the higher the quality. For our Premium Pure Cotton, we exclusively use long staple cotton. We use dense cotton with a compact weave that has an incredibly soft hand-feel, which becomes softer over time.
ORGANIC PURE COTTON
Organic Pure Cotton has a shorter yet classic staple (30 mm) and is made without varying chemicals. The spinning method of the yarns is compact and the grammage higher than the average which gives it a more robust appearance and a quality quite similar as classic cotton. We will leave it up to you to decide which one to go for.
The “Piqué” is a durable cotton knit fabric covered with a tiny, textured pattern. The cross-tuck knit construction creates a unique and subtle effect evoking the sport. We use a touch of elathane for more comfort ans tapered fit. Cotton piqué is a durable and easy care fabric.
RECYCLED, LIGHT-WEIGHT, QUICK-DRYING POLYESTER
The polyester used in our swim shorts is 100% recycled and also 100% recyclable. A perfect example of a premium, light-weight fabric being used, offering high-tech qualities such as UV and chlorine protection, but also has a recycled past and a recycled future.
PURE SPORTS CASHMERE
This 100% pure sports cashmere comes from Mongolia and is produced by our French cashmere partner in a state-of-the-art atelier in Hangzhou, China. Our cashmere doesn’t have to be sent off to the dry cleaners, but can simply be washed by hand or in the machine and dried horizontally on a towel.
A blend that has become a Ron Dorff must-have. The perfect mix between cotton and cashmere to offer classic sportswear pieces in a breathable, highly-comfortable and chic fabric. Ideal for early Spring and early Fall seasons.
When we decided to launch our RD Polo with an original front zip rather than the traditional three front buttons, we also wanted to upgrade the standard polo with a new, luxurious fabric. The result was a unique, breathable blend of 70% cotton and 30% silk. It has since become an RD Essential.
Gassed cotton is a special cotton yarn that has a brighter finish than conventional cotton. The process removes all the excess material to make room for a cleaner fiber, stronger and silkier material. We use the "Rolls-Royce" of cotton for all our RD eyelet T-shirts.
Merino is a fine, delicate wool from sheep mainly bred in Australia, South Africa and North America. A dense, curly fleece produces abundant, ultra-comfortable wool which is also stretchy and hard-wearing. Three times finer than traditional wool, it is soft and silky thus perfect for even the most sensitive of skins. Merino wool is also highly insulating and temperature-regulating keeping you warm without making you sweat. Due to its antibacterial properties, the wool does not trap odours. All these qualities make Merino wool the ideal fabric for a warm but mlight feeling all year round.
Modal is a natural fibre manufactured in an environmentally-friendly way. Similar to other natural fibres such as cotton and viscose,however, different from cotton because of its high degree of elasticity and durability and from viscose because of its strength and smooth texture. Because of this, the fabric is pilling-resistant and has a fine finish, making it ideal for everyday casual-chic use. Modal is also a very breathable fabric, making it particularly suitable for the warmer months of the year. And with its high absorbency, durability and breathability, the fabric is ideal for for on-body, chic sporty looks.
