Alfred Dunhill is a British design house specializing in men’s clothing, luxury goods and accessories. The business began when Alfred Dunhill, just 21 years of age, took over his father’s saddlery business, in 1893. The automobile was an exciting new piece of technology being developed at the time, and Dunhill transformed the saddlery into an automobile accessories store. Among the company’s first offerings were such non-standard (at the time) accoutrements as horns, lamps and dashboard clocks. Dunhill also made leather overcoats, goggles and other accessories for drivers.
