Dunhill: Dress (4109) (2019)
Product Number: 002-015-5347
A rare combination from Dunhill, this winsome "09" Canadian is dressed in the marque's regal Dress finish. A traditional piece, the solid Billiard bowl is rendered in Group 4 size, while the classic oval shaping of the elongated shank and short, tapered stem form a lovely, elegant balance. Pair that with the deep black stain of Dunhill's stately Dress series, and you've got a briar with all the charm it could ever need, the dark palette contrasted by a trim band of silver around the shank end, sure to make it a highlight at any black tie formal 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.-Angela Robertson
