Dunhill: Dress (4203) (2022) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6347
Many consider Dunhill's thoroughly traditional and classic "03" to be the archetypal straight Billiard from which all others are adapted. This Group 4 rendition pairs the full-bodied, poised bowl with an elegantly rendered saddle stem of vulcanite, which is hand-cut for supreme comfort. This combination of group size and shape is rather rare, and its proportions here are excellent without any one element being exaggerated or oversized. Its refinement is further accentuated by the deep hues of the Dress finish, the dark, glossy stain revealing some handsome grain and offering a classic, timeless look that's sure to stay stylish for decades to come.
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 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
