Dunhill: Dress (4113) (2020) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-6346

While many of Dunhill's shapes maintain their form and proportions across the English marque's various Group sizes, the "13" bent Apple takes on an Egg-like appearance at the larger end of the size spectrum. Traditionally, in Group sizes 1-3, the "13" presents as a squat, rounded shape, but in this plump Group 4 size, the design possesses a tall bowl with a wide, plump heel that tapers gradually upwards to the rim. Nonetheless, the shape is rather handsome, offering a stellar in hand presence and boasting a fittingly capacious tobacco chamber. The dark and glossy Dress finish lends this piece a classy air, augmented by a slim silver band.

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.
