    Just purchased a few Dunhill items, a navy cardigan and a navy wool peacoat, both size small (NWT). Not sure if they're gonna gel with my style so they may end up on the B&S here. How is the brand regarded? Shoot me a pm if you wanna get first dibs, but I might end up keeping.

    Thoughts?

    It had prestige, but I think the consensus around here is that that has disintegrated and they started to take a more directionally SW&D approach to the cuts and designs. I would class it as "out of favor." However, your items sound like simple basics, so they could well be nice. I've seen a few items that looked solid -- sort of an austere, less futuristic version of Jil Sander.

    I tried it in store, really wanted to kop but it didn't fit perfectly . How much did it cost you, if you don't mind my asking? Thanks

    This is the impression I gathered as well...Cuts appear to be pretty slim, which I can get behind. Might just keep this stuff, but it's a bit pricey for a college student like me. The quality is still good then, right?

    It varies by garment. Mind the Made In label. Some stuff is fragile. You haven't really elaborated on the items you got, so it's anybody's guess. I remember liking some coats they had.
    By the way, since you are curious and we're on the subject, older Dunhill stuff is coveted to some extent (if eBay is any indication... which, frankly, I think is not) -- rolltop lighters and other desktop gewgaws.

    Had this custom bow made by Cordial Churchman for the holidays, the tshirt is a gift for my nephew. Bow is reversible with wool Blackwatch and black satin. Awesome on both sides!

    Keeping with the bowtie above, my fiance just happened to be in Chicago this weekend with some friends, so I got to take advantage of Paul Stuart's recent $50 in-store gift certificate. Each of her friends kindly printed a gift certificate for me, although I'm sure the sales women was not too happy about it.

    Picked up this glen plaid bowtie: [​IMG]
