    I was walking through Saks earlier today and I saw a section devoted to Alfred Dunhill suits. Is that new?

    The line featured some pretty outrageous stripes and windowpanes. Some were fused, some seemed canvas, some with pick stitching that looked irregular enough to be hand done.

    Is Dunhill trying to crack the men's suit market?

    don't know about cracking the men's suit market - Dunhill have been in that market for quite some time...

    I noticed that Dunhill section sometime last summer, but I believe it has been there for a while....

    Agreed. Dunhills been making English inspired clothes for a long while (hence the bold patterns). Good stuff.

    Richard James has started designing their tailoring for the Spring-Summer 2005-2006 collection.




    Rick James is still dead.

    Dunhill used to try to limit distribution to their own branded stores. However, they withdrew their US retail presence (except New York) a year or two ago and boosted their distribution at places like Saks.
