Dunhill "popper cufflinks" in sterling and enamel. I am a collector of this type of American snap cufflinks from the 1920's. Dunhill was the first contemporary company to have produced replicas of these types of cufflinks. I heard about them from fellow cufflink collectors and flipped out. I paid full retail ($295) for a pair. Ends up they didn't sell well and were quickly discontinued. They show up on Ebay now and can be easiliy found for $40 or less. No pride in overpaying.......................sob
$40 dollars or less?. Yowsa... I've never seen them that low. I've bought several on ebay, but usually somewhere around $100. I agree with you: those are great links, and I'm surprised that they were so quickly discontinued. It's taken me a while, but I think I now have all colors/versions of the Dunhill snap links... :-) JV

I've got this one too. Cashmere blend, right? It's a lovely piece. Got it for next to nothing on ebay a year or so ago... :-) JV

Navy 120s blazer (SB) made by Zegna. Not bad at all, but I'm probably resentful that I paid the excessive full price. Wallet and credit card case-nicely made with good leather, in Italy. Don't see the Dunhill name as anything that distinctive-except I remember that the little gold lighter (lost many years ago) and the pipes with the white dots (remember my straight grain) were special.
In my opinion, the watches and pens (and, perhaps to a lesser extent, the cuff links) are certainly distinctive. The faceted watch face is quite distinctive. Dunhill, too, was among the first to make carbon fiber pens -- again, very distinctive looking. JV

I bought J his Dunhill lighter while I was in Japan. Paid full retail for it I believe - but I've never really been the kind of guy to skimp on gifts. It's pretty nice.

Isn't this interesting? Three bloody pages of replies about Dunhill stuff, and not a single damn tobacco pipe--the very product on which Dunhill's fame was based. A sad commentary on the decline of pipe smoking--a gentle, philosophic and soul-satisfying practice properly performed. "A man with a pipe is at peace with the world," I like to tell people. I suppose the day is coming when Holland & Holland and Beretta will primarily be known as clothing companies. That will not be a better day.

I know I have a few Dunhill ties, all probably from Filene's Basement; the only one I can think of at the moment is a horizontally ribbed silk in solid pink that I just trotted out earlier in the week for Valentine's Day. (Though I love the color red, I hate most red ties, for whatever reason.) There was a Dunhill shop on Newbury Street in Boston in the '80s to early '90s. Its wares never greatly appealed to me. Although the color sense was keener than that at, say, Aquascutum, the styling always seemed to me very conservative--and not in a good way. Just dullish and suburban.

H&H is a firearm company first and foremost, I'd be interested in knowing who makes there RTW. I personally own quite a bit of dunhill, items include: --Silver on black with black banded faceted watch. (I get positive comments on this watch every time I wear it.) --Gray cashmere slim fit turtleneck --Dunhill motories navy blue with baby blue stiching wool crewneck sweater --Two pair of cufflinks; one navy, black, silver, one light blue and silver --Several dress shirts; favorite is a gray bengal stripe with 5% lycra. --Several ties; mostly blue but favorite is a light purple with small green boxes.
