Dunhill: Dress (3226) (2018)
Product Number: 002-015-4306
No other pipe rivals the jaw-hanging ease and comfort of an Oom Paul. Fully bent with a broad heel and hearty transition, Dunhill's "26" is a quintessential rendition, dubbed the "Hungarian" by the English marque. Dunhill's rendition can take on two forms: a more Egg-like bowl and the flat-bottomed, Billiard version seen here. As such, it sits sturdily upright, offering the balance of a bent pipe as well as the convenience of a sitter. Found here in Group 3 size, it's versatile of proportions, and wears the Dress finish — a particularly rare combination.
One of the most fashionable finishes in all of pipemaking and one that inspired an entire aesthetic, Dunhill's Dress finish was first introduced in 1973 meant to elegantly complement a tuxedo or similar formal wear, perfect for a night on the town. Characterized by its glossy, jet-black stain and sterling silver accent band, the Dress finish exudes class and imbues each pipe it adorns with a sense of refinement and sophistication. It's the progenitor of the term "dress pipe," now used to reference any black-and-silver pipe, and is one of the most distinctive finishes in all of pipedom.-Truett Smith
