Dunhill: Dress (4112) (2022) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-015-7381

This "4112" from English marque Dunhill is a sleek-lined and lightweight Stack that features a tall, deep-chambered bowl paired to a rounded shank and a tapered stem that terminates gracefully at the lip button. The low-set transition further accentuates the bowl's height without being too dramatic or excessive, fostering a bowl-forward aesthetic that's still rooted in classic pipe design. This piece's traditional appeal is cemented thanks to the deep, inky stain of the White Spot's Dress finish, elegantly accented by a silver band at the junction.

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.
