New luxury cigar accessories from S.T. Dupont, Padrón and Rocky Patel that were on display at this summer’s International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers trade show are available now. The high-end cases and tools were part of a partnership with cigar accessories maker Brizard & Co.
S.T. Dupont has launched the Vintage Alligator Collection, a new line of leather cigar cases and accessories crafted from the hides of buffalo, alligators and crocodiles. The collection includes two large carrying cases called Havana Travelers and three smaller cigar cases. Each case is individually numbered, and only 99 pieces of each S.T. Dupont accessory will be made available to the public.
Inside each Havana Traveler case is a leather-wrapped version of the Le Grand S.T. Dupont lighter, which is capable of producing both a soft flame and jet flame, an interior five-count protective cigar case, a flask and pockets for carrying additional cigar accessories. The cases are available in two color schemes: chocolate and Cognac, and charcoal gray and electric blue. The Cognac-hued Havana Traveler is priced at $9,965.40. The eye-catching electric blue version is $11,985.40.
The three smaller alligator cases are available in three color formats: chocolate and Cognac, gray and electric blue and a third, dark-brown option made with juvenile alligator hide with vibrant orange calf leather accents and piping around the case. The Cognac and electric blue three-finger cases are both priced at $2,950.80. The dark brown and orange case, however, is valued at $5,103.80.
S.T. Dupont accessories are distributed by Davidoff in the United States, and orders for the Vintage Alligator Collection can be placed at Davidoff of Geneva 1911 Flagship stores. S.T. Dupont notes that the production timeline for all pieces in the Vintage Alligator Collection is three months upon receipt of order.
Padrón Cigars has also released a three-finger case called The Little Hammer. It’s crafted with burgundy leather and adorned with a tiny, 18-karat gold hammer—the insignia of Padrón Cigars. Each piece is priced at $350 and only 350 cases have shipped to retailers.
Rocky Patel has two limited-edition cigar cases that are only available for purchase at Burn by Rocky Patel locations in Pittsburgh, Naples, Florida, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Called The DBS Collection, the first case features quilted leather with diamond-shaped stitching and orange piping accents. The second showcases exterior leather stamped with the Rocky Patel crest accented with cream piping. Both options are topped with perforated leather. The first case retails for $110; the second costs $130. Only 100 of each case are available to consumers.
