Dunhill: Dress (3110) (2021) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-5794

Dunhill's "10" shape code designates one of two shapes, either a classic Liverpool, or a Bing's Favorite Billiard, with this piece falling comfortably into the latter category. As such, this is a sleek, svelte pipe, with a shank and stem combination possessed of a charming thinness, the shank itself transitioning quite low on the bowl. Said bowl is pert and upright, standing atop a rounded heel with walls that take on a very ginger taper to the rim, its slight curves lending it a comfortable feel in hand. One of the few examples of the shape that have come as a part of this series, this pipe comes paired with the Iconic Dress finish, pairing a glossy black stain with an elegant silver band and jet-black stem.

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.
