ALFRED DUNHILL
 
 

 

 

In 1893, at the age of just 21, a young gentleman inventor, Alfred Dunhill, inherited his father’s saddlery business on London’s Euston Road. The entrepreneurial Alfred quickly responded to the growing passion for automobiles and developed a luxurious line of accessories called Dunhill Motorities. This first collection included car horns and lamps, leather overcoats, goggles, picnic sets and timepieces. Alfred’s claim was to provide everything but the motor to his discerning clientele.

Over one hundred years later, Alfred Dunhill has become the leading maker and purveyor of English luxury goods for men.
