Dunhill: Dress (2109) (2019) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6669
For those who prefer more petite pipes but still enjoy the classic English style, Dunhill's Group 2 offerings fit the bill perfectly — they present enough chamber space for a variety of blends yet feature lightweight proportions, making them excellent travel pipes and hands-free smokers. Such is the case with this "09" Canadian. The reduced size adds even more sleekness to the elongated, oval shank, poising the Billiard bowl on the end, and its more abbreviated shank provides a lightweight persona for comfortable clenching, here presented in the inky stain of the Dress finish.
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
