Tastemaker: Dunhill’s Kim Jones: Rules of Style : Details

October 19, 2010



Since signing on as creative director of Dunhill two years ago, Kim Jones has transformed the stodgy English house—best known for its traditional tailoring and fine writing instruments—into a contemporary style leader. Here, the buzzy Brit, 32, shares his advice on fall essentials, the understated suit, and why there’s more to life than black brogues.

Buy Wrinkle-Free Blazers /

“When I think of a blazer, I think of it more as a sportswear item than as something formal, because you can dress it up or down. We make one from a South African mohair called camdeboo. You can just throw it anywhere and it doesn’t crease. For someone who travels a lot, that’s a brilliant thing. You never need to press it.”

Bring the Outside In /

“The Dunhill man is a bit of an outdoor adventurer as well as a successful businessman. For me, using elements from the outdoors is key to making things look less formal. I love technical trousers or a nylon vest or hiking boots with a tailored jacket. Boots are really versatile, and they age well. I’ve gotten quite into boots of late. I’m wearing them virtually every day
