Dunhill: Dress (5128) (2020) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-6959

One of Dunhill's scarcer shapes, this "28" Diplomat combines several elements of other shape-chart standard pipes. The rotund bowl is reminiscent of the elegant "07" Prince, whereas the broad, curving shank-stem arrangement inspires comparisons to the "21" Zulu. These elements combine to create a hearty, organic shape that appears here in hand-filling Group 5 size, which provides a vast space to display Dunhill's distinguished 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.
