This Week’s Object of Lust: Dunhill Shark Cufflinks


I tend to dress fairly conservatively. Despite this, I love to have a bit of fun when I dress for work. When I can dress conservatively, but in some small way add a tongue-in-cheek detail, that is the best of all worlds. This is why I’ve had my eye on Dunhill’s “Shark” cufflink since I first took notice of them. As a lawyer, this is the perfect way to add something that is both an inside joke as well as visually interesting to an otherwise conservative outfit while remaining unquestionably appropriate for any business situation.

Dunhill is famous for their tobacco products, but also their accessories, which have been made since Alfred Dunhill transformed his family business specializing in horse harnesses into one of the world’s foremost companies specializing in men’s accessories in 1903. Dunhill’s first product was known as the “Bobby Finder” which were goggles meant to spot policemen while driving one’s car. It’s invention was spurned when Alfred Dunhill and his chauffeur were ticketed 1 pound sterling by a Bobby (English slang for police officer, for those that may not be aware)  for driving at 22.5 miles per hour, which was speeding at the time.  From there Dunhill has created some of the world’s most interesting and beautifully masculine accessories, including their famed Rollagas lighters, cufflinks, pens and watches.

So, if you happen to need a gift for that lawyer you know, here it is at Dunhill.com . Believe me when I say that the joke will be well received and the perfect balance will have been struck between sophistication and humour.
