Dunhill: Dress (6102) (2020) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-5959
The largest rendition of Dunhill's iconic "02" bent Billiard, this Group 6 offering ventures into house pipe size with its chamber dimensions and palm-filling substance. As such, it's well-suited for relaxing smoking sessions in a favorite armchair. When seen in such large size, the "02" draws attention especially to its sinuous profile, the shank and stem gradually flaring into the muscular transition to accentuate the robust bowl. It's an excellent example of Dunhill's traditional shaping style, ramped up to exceptional overall size.
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
