Dunhill: Dress (5120) (2019) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5522
Offering a gently inflated, smooth rim and a forward cant to its cylindrical bowl, this "20" Cherrywood from Dunhill is sleek and refined, retaining an appreciative gracefulness despite its Group 5 size. The high-set transition and elegantly downturned stem lend the profile a softer disposition than some of its more firm-lined, rigid brethren, while still maintaining the classicism of the marque's standard shape chart. The stummel is commended by Dunhill's iconic Dress finish, leaving the Briar stained an inky black to match the stem, while a trim band of gleaming silver along the shank end provides a handsome contrast, sure to liven up 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
