This brand is too expensive (but during sales you can find some good bargains).

So I picked up =

1) 1 pair of lamb/cashmere gloves (50%) = VERY NICE
2) 1 grey knitted cashmere scarf (53%) = VERY NICE
3) 1 navy woven cashmere scarf (60%) = NICE
4) 8 pairs of cufflinks (around 50% for most of them) = NICE
5) 1 belt + 2 buckles (40%+80%) = NICE
6) 1 beige turtle neck cashmere jumper (75%) = VERY NICE
7) 1 blue turtle neck cashmere jumper (75%) = NICE
8) 1 small leather travel bag (65%) = Good but heavy

And you? What were your discounts?

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

A PoW or glen plaid (can't remember) super 100s soft worsted jacket, 3 roll 2 button, full canvas, made in Italy - $10 (thrift shop) very nice.

Dunhill gold 'unique' lighter. - $0 (gift) also very nice.

I like Dunhill's stuff, just don't find much of it.

Nothing. When their Heritage Store goes out of business, as it certainly will, I will be there to mop up. For the moment, their shirts and ties as sold in the were not the equal of Hilditch; now that Richard James is "consulting" on their shirts, ties and tailoring I _may_ have a look. He's definitely too into the Persuaders though. Otherwise Dunhill has only stood out to me as a wannabe but not quite ueberpremium (sic) brand, expertly copied for its logo. Reversible belts with the d logo, you know the type.

They _do_ make some gorgeous stuff. They only have one store in the US now and there's nothing I need or want enough from there to pay full retail.

I don't like most of their cufflinks for the toggle backs. I think that breaks some rule that Manton would defend. I certainly would.

Poulsen Skone for Dunhill chocolate brown suede monkstraps at 70% off. And a tie at full retail. Very happy with both items.

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.

Is this your label of the moment?

What happened to Turnbull & Asser?

Or was it Hilditch & Key?
Not of the moment. I picked up my first cufflinks at 60 euros 4 years ago. I just found some good discount these sales (2 scarves+2 jumpers) so this brand was in my head these days.

I was been obsessed by H&K 6 months ago but now I have got 33 H&K. This is enough.

I have a black 6 on 1 double breasted tuxedo and a grayish herringbone/tweed type blazer with red and navy windowpanes. Both of them are great pieces. The latter I got during StyleStudent's Christmas giveaway, so if there's anything special I'm missing I'm sure he would know better than I.

I have their new cologne, I like it a lot. My Dad has a few of their turtlenecks and they are beautiful. And yes, the company was rescused from financial disaster by the Japanese obession for brand name luxury goods.
