Brand personality plays a critical role in customer loyalty, and also has profound effects on a companyâ€™s brand performance. This study seeks to investigate the influence of brand personality dimensions (sincerity, excitement, competence, sophistication, and ruggedness) on brand loyalty in the Malaysian sportswear industry. A total of 958 respondents from six different parts of Malaysia participated in this study. A survey using non-probability sampling was used in this study. Findings of this study provide empirical verification of the link among brand personality dimensions and brand loyalty. In addition, â€œruggednessâ€ is found to be the most contributing factors for brand loyalty.
