On a recent visit to Dunhill’s archive in Walthamstow, northeast London, I was so enthralled by the sight of Pablo Picasso’s lighter, personally engraved with a sketch of his muse and lover Dora Maar, I all but began smoking on the spot. Almost as exciting was the carefully preserved bespoke dinner suit made by Dunhill for Truman Capote’s seminal black and white masked ball of 1966, its grosgrain peak lapels worn thin with love. Dunhill is currently producing equally covetable dinner jackets in a midnight-blue barathea (£1,425), which would look sublime with black wool trousers (£265) and white dress shirts (£275), as well as some cracking velvet dinner jackets (£1,490) in Japanese cotton velvet that come in black, navy and an arresting dusty coral.
