Another Short (At least for me) Riley :D

My Prefix is a famous man

Made many incredible things and I love them all

My Infix produces most of the stuff I wear

I think it came from the UK

My Suffix is what my prefix has done

It always soothes my mind

My Whole comes from the neighboring country of one of the most dangerous ones

What am I?

Hint :

I believe many have or had used the word

Hint 2 :

The prefix is only the first name of the famous man

I think the answer is

Samsung

My Prefix is a famous man

Made many incredible things and I love them all

Sam - which I think might be singer Sam Smith, but I'm not sure.

My Infix produces most of the stuff I wear

I think it came from the UK

M&S - short for Marks and Spencers

My Suffix is what my prefix has done

It always soothes my mind

Sung - This is why I think it is a singer

My Whole comes from the neighboring country of one of the most dangerous ones

As mentioned by AHKieran, Samsung is from South Korea, neighbour of North Korea.

  • $\begingroup$ Yep you are absolutely correct. Sam Smith is a good singer so I thought I would include him in a Riley riddle. Will accept tomorrow :D $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 10 '18 at 8:59
  • $\begingroup$ Ah well done! I wasn't sure of SK exports and had looked up car models but nothing fit :P Good spot! $\endgroup$ – AHKieran Sep 10 '18 at 9:45

Partial:

Whole:

I'm thinking the most dangerous country referenced might be North Korea, so the whole would then be a South Korean export, if they mean literal neighbour, or Japanese export, if they also mean across the water.

Prefix:

Shigeru Miyamoto is the head of Nintendo, who make lots of video games which OP may love, this may translate to the prefix of 'SM'

Suffix:

A nintendo product i.e. pokemon or gameboy, but initialised like the prefix.

    $\begingroup$ Well, the 'whole' section is on the right track but both the prefix and suffix is not :D $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 10 '18 at 8:22
