I've seen items on Sierra Trading Post by Alfred Dunhill. Is Alfred Dunhill the same as Dunhill, like the store on Fifth Avenue in NYC? If not, what type of brand is it?

Nice global luxury brand, not a lot of personality. They deal with good makers. There was some late 80s merger or deal in NYC between Alfred Dunhill, which was originally a tobacconist of course, and the venerably classy Dunhill Tailors. This was the resolution of a trademark dispute. Shirtmaven or the search engine could tell you more.Originally Posted by mack11211
I got a Dunheel (Dunhill, Alfred Dunhill, and Dunheel, in this context, are all the same) suit from Sierratradingpost. It's made by Zegna, and quite good in my opinion. Very comfortable.Originally Posted by Earthmover
What context?Originally Posted by barbatruk
Dunheel is a styleforum bastardization of referring to Dunhill, started by a rather interesting Frenchman. .Originally Posted by Earthmover
New & Lingwood has not been known for their bespoke shoes since Cleverley & co. left around 1991. Their Russia calf shoes are sold at a huge markup and made, I believe, to benchgrade standard by C&J. Cleverley gets right of first refusal on the hides, which Cleverley only uses for bespoke. The surcharge for Russia calf from Cleverley is only a few hundred dollars -- nothing like the thousand-dollar surcharge N&L wants on its RTW.Also, I was in their NY store this weekend, and I noticed that they were selling New & Lingwood Russian Reindeer Calf shoes for something like $1500, which I didn't know they made RTW. It was pretty cool.
Actually, it was started by an eccentric Japanese milliardaire taking the piss out of said Frenchman. Ironically, Earthmover, you were replying to that same Frenchman. Ca baigne, ernie?Originally Posted by RJMan
