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 (36mm), the highest-grade cotton in the world. Uniform cotton fibres make for a smooth and consistent fabric 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.
We never compromise on quality, but we always try to find fabrics that are unique and sustainable. The cotton-wool fabric is exactly that. Using recycled wool makes a unique blend that is not only ultra-comfortable but also sustainable.
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, lightweight 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. Use our Cashmere Discipline Kit and your cashmere pieces will be with you for many years to come.
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.
Mercerized cotton is a special kind of cotton yarn that is more lustrous than conventional cotton. It is also stronger, takes dye a little more readily, produces less lint and is more resistant to mildew. We use the ‘Rolls-Royce’ of cotton for all our RD Eyelet T-shirts.
