Scene setting: The Savile Club in the heart of Mayfair was Dunhill’s location of choice for a presentation imbued with so much elegance that we almost felt transported to the creative club’s 19th century heyday. Divided in a handful of rooms, the space displayed the finest pieces for different occasions.

Best in show: The country weekend styles suited the top floor leisure room the best: looking seriously relaxed in velvet and corduroy suits, the Dunhill gentlemen engaged in quiet conversation or an absorbing game of chess, to the sound of a piano player accompanied by a saxophone.

Finishing touches: Ultra-thin socks in nude to brown hues were worn in each type of shoe: Oxfords, Derbies, slip-on loafers and driving shoes included.
