impulse buy of the day. gloves.

Never let me go near a Dunhill store without taking my wallet from me; that’s the moral of the story.

As of yet, I have never been able to walk into a Dunhill store and not walk out with a bag in my hand, in fact my impulsive buying at that shop in particular is a bit scary.

The damage today wasn’t that bad….err, relatively speaking.  I’d been looking for a new pair of winter gloves for the past week or two, having even dismissed a pair i liked somewhere last week because they were “too expensive” ($100)…..fast forward to today, I was invited to the Audi Forum in Manhattan for some free drinks, a look around the cars they had, and a general social gathering.  The gathering was quite boring, so i swigged down 2 Amstels and decided to walk 9 blocks to go to the Dunhill store.

The damage?  Well the winter “Shearling” gloves i bought were $225.  But OH how they feel when i put them on……the inside is lined with mink fur, and the outside trimmed in leather and suede.  I drove home in the TT, and the gloves just felt EPIC.  Surely the fact that i’d just spent $225 on them made them just that much more beautiful.

    If you so the math, it’s almost 1 whole percent of the price of the 911R you mentioned the other day. If you are serious about that car, start ignoring the Dunhill shop!
