Since 1893, dunhill has been synonymous with a very British type of masculine elegance.
Innovative products and uncompromising quality were the accomplishments of the young businessman Alfred Dunhill and these values are central to the continued success of the brand. Today, the house remains faithful to the enduring spirit of its founder, and has for many years been associated with the highest craftsmanship, delivering the finest in luxury menswear and accessories.
The brand has a firm foothold in London’s luxury quarter, including a shop on Jermyn Street and its flagship store Bourdon House on Davies Street. Once the home of the Duke of Westminster, Bourdon House embodies the full brand lifestyle going far beyond just the traditional retail experience. There is a traditional barber’s shop, shoe shining, a humidor, a café with seating both indoors and outdoors in the courtyard and a bespoke workshop where one of Savile Row’s master tailors heads up the bespoke service offered.
With a proud history of creating the very finest in gentlemen’s tailoring, the definitive bespoke cut from Alfred Dunhill is a masterclass in understated elegance. Referred to as the British dunhill cut, the style is a modern suit that eschews the trend-driven nature of high fashion and is designed to be worn on any occasion. Unmistakably British in its cut and presentation, every part of the suit is hand cut and hand finished in London by Alfred Dunhill’s master tailors. Working exclusively with only the best mills, an extensive choice of over 4,000 of the very best tailoring fabrics include high twist weaves with fantastic natural crease resistance, super 260 cloths and incredibly luxurious blends such as vicuña and silk.
Alfred Dunhill Homes in London, Shanghai and Tokyo have an in-house, dedicated specialist joined every season by the London Master Tailor to host trunk shows and meet with the customers. The in-house tailors represent the best of Savile Row tradition, translating it into a personal service for clients. The truly bespoke suit is built through a dialogue between client and master tailor, with every detail and decision made to ensure a product of unparalleled quality and fit.
Evening events are also a key social occasion to dress for, and the brand offers an unparalleled range of black tie and opera suits. Business suits are a more day-to-day affair, but no less important to get right, and both classic and contemporary cuts are available in all dunhill stores. Alfred Dunhill is proud to have dressed many leading men for films, premieres and Oscar appearances.
dunhill’s bespoke services extend beyond menswear to include leather goods, an enduring signature of the brand’s heritage. A team of craftsman based at dunhill’s workshop in Walthamstow take consultations for bespoke leather goods for clients worldwide. With materials sourced from the top tanneries across the globe, as well as exotic skins from the best sustainable farms, a bespoke leather product from dunhill is a product for life.
Recalling the traditions of English country pursuits and elegant city dressing, the latest ready-to-wear collection shows an evolution of the British masculinity inherent to the brand’s aesthetic through an innate sense of wearability; luxurious cashmere knits are appropriately layered for purpose under a motoring-inspired leather blouson or a traditional military-inspired overcoat, while classical British tailoring is offered in sumptuous wool cloths. Accessories in the collection include hand-finished ties and pocket squares, elegant cufflinks and tie bars, and business bags and exquisitely crafted small card cases and wallets, from vegetable-tanned and printed calfskin leathers.
