When Mr Alfred Dunhill took over his family’s saddlery business in 1893, he dedicated himself to creating fine men’s accessories and clothes, as well as motoring goods. In the days before cars were sold with accessories, Alfred Dunhill famously provided “everything but the motor”, from dashboard clocks and horns to driving goggles and overcoats. In 1922 Mr Dunhill took out a patent for an interior light for bags, which he had developed to allow his wife to apply her lipstick with ease during ballet performances. Innovation, functionality and luxury have always been cornerstones of Dunhill, which has grown into a quintessentially British, men’s luxury brand. The focus is squarely on timeless, masculine clothes and accessories, all created with great care and attention using only the best materials.
