If my recent posts on Alfred Dunhill have proven anything, it is while the company is steeped in tradition and history, there’s another side to it that’s no less current and modern. Take the Alfred Dunhill London Single Document Satchel for instance, a handsome leather briefcase that will be a better fit for a strapping young man, as opposed to his elderly father whom everyone still thinks the brand is best suited for.
Made in England by skilled craftsmen, the 38 cm by 32 cm tanned cowhide leather briefcase is finished off with brushed palladium hardware. And that’s not all. I read somewhere that when you buy the satchel, it will come with the craftsman’s name card on the inside, and if you ever need any repairs, the same craftsman will be responsible for it. Which is really neat, right?
Priced at GBP760 (under SGD1500 after conversion), it comes in Tan as well as Bordeaux (shown above), which in my opinion is modern, sleek and even a tad bit sporty. You can even get it online if you like, where they do ship internationally.
And speaking of sporty, do check out the new S/S12 ad campaign which stars a trio of British Olympians over on Alfred Dunhill’s Facebook fan page, and celebrates the achievements of these brilliant men and their inspiring stories.
