London-based international leather goods store Alfred Dunhill is the perfect place for guys who hate to shop—and guys who love it, too. Known for fine business bags, wallets and precision watches in a range of leathers and exotics, including ostrich foot, the midtown boutique is also something of a glorified toy store, with retro gadgets, tiny cars, license plates and airplane parts scattered through the displays of well-made satchels, 007-worthy leather briefcases and handsome clocks. For those who love browsing, shelves and cases line the walls and floor; for those who prefer the grab-and-go method, attentive help make shopping a painless, and quick, experience. Women seeking gifts for hard-to-please gents (or a little something for themselves) will not be disappointed. The lighting is bright enough to see exactly what you’re buying, and to bounce the gleam from the high-beamed ceilings on the shiny hardwood floors.
Sure, you can get a pipe here, but the cuff-link selection is bar none. You’ll find such varied options as classic gold-and-mother-of-pearl combos and versatile black-onyx rectangles, not to mention memorable groomsman gifts like lighters and money clips.
