Dunhill: Dress (2109) (2019) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5344
Dunhill's Group sizes take overall size into account, which sometimes results in incomparable chamber dimension across the same Group. For example, this "09" Canadian in Group 2 presents an efficiently compact profile — perfectly pocketable at just about five inches in length. The bowl and subsequent chamber, however, are on par with typical Group 4 pipes, making this the perfect on-the-go pipe for when lightweight ease is preferred but chamber depth prioritized. The elegant form of this pipe is further elevated by Dunhill's application of their dress finish, pairing a deep, inky stain on the stummel with a broad band of silver at the shank end, making this Canadian a perfect choice for any black tie event.
One of the most fashionable finishes in all of pipe making and one that inspired an entire aesthetic, Dunhill's Dress finish was first introduced in 1973 as the Black Briar — renamed "Dress" in 1979 with the addition of silver — and is 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
