Dunhill: Dress (5103) (2020) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-015-6929
Perhaps no shape in the pipe making world is more iconic than Dunhill's legendary "03" Billiard. Possessed of a supple bowl and arrow-straight shank and stem, the profile of the "03" is as elegant as it is traditional. Furthermore, the perfect proportions superbly balance the composition, an indicator of why the Billiard shape is so timeless. This particular "03" is rendered in hearty Group 5 size and is dressed in Dunhill's 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.--Zach Podl
