Dunhill: Dress (3406) (2016)

Product Number: 002-015-5519

The second number in Dunhill's four-digit shape stamp refers to the type of stem. Most commonly the "4" stem is paired to the English marque's "07" Prince design — the mouthpiece slightly elongated and elegantly bent, per the classic Prince form. Here, however, the slightly downturned stem extends from the "06" Pot stummel. Contrasting the shank and stem's lithe curvature and comparatively slender disposition, the Group 3-sized bowl is broad and upright in profile.

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.
