If the temp is above 10 degrees C, I find the Hoggs jacket can be a bit too warm to wear with a shirt AND jumper/suit jacket...particularly if you're moving round a lot (remember, they're not breathable like GoreTex or other modern synthetic fabrics).
Does anyone have any experience of Dremel's Plunge Router attachment?
My good lady wife has started asking what I'd like for Christmas and I'm currently well stocked for the Shavepocalypse! :thumbup1:
I've been thinking about upgrading my (very) basic multitool to a proper Dremel (so I can...
I've got something similar to a Barbour, but mine's by Hoggs Of Fife...a fraction of the price and it's what the farmers and gamekeepers wear here (which is a pretty good recommendation given the weather in Scotland).
Go for a jacket that hangs below your hips. If it's properly maintained and...
Always carry a handkerchief (cotton, 14" square approx) in my front pocket for the nose...just grab a clean one everyday from the sock drawer.
If I'm going "formal" (suit or dinner jacket), I carry an extra one as a pocket square. I used to use silk ones for this but a fresh, ironed cotton...
I'm not a cigar smoker (apart from an occasional one at "special events") and have only been smoking pipes for just over 3 months...so I'm not a good source for recommendations.
However, before you buy any more baccy, check out TobaccoReviews. It's not ideal for browsing by variety, but if...
A very nice, very collectable, selection there Brad.
There is a big market for genuinely unsmoked "estate" pipes...particularly Petersons.
Have a look on ebay for completed listings to get an idea of prices for estate Petersons, then add on some extra for the fact it's boxed! The Pete looks...
So far, I've got all my estate pipes from ebay...you just need to be careful with your maximum bid and watch seller's feedback (as with any ebay purchase).
Mark at Pipecraft has a good range of new and estate pipes. Was very helpful with my recent enquiry and happy to answer all my...
Some of the Savinelli range (Porto Cervo definitely) and Petersons (Dublin and some Killarneys) take the 9mm filters. Also have a look for Big Bens. A lot of the European makers carry filter ranges as well as Denicotea from Israel (although the shipping might be a killer for you).
Don't have that problem here (apart from the bad weather)...Mrs Pumpkin is much more accepting of pipe tobacco than I ever thought she'd be :thumbup1:
Personally, I'm finding the GLP blends a bit too heavy on the Latakia for my (current) taste.
Been enjoying Dunhill DLNR and C&D's...
I've only been smoking a pipe for 3 months (after 25 years of cigs) and I've seen more pipe smokers in that time than I ever remember seeing...It might just be that I'm more aware of my fellow lovers of the briar :001_smile
Welcome to the civilised world of pipe smoking gentlemen :sailor:
I'm not personally drawn to rustics myself, but that's a nice looking pipe.
Yes, PAD (and TAD) are pretty pervasive...I've got over a dozen after just 3 months! :lol:
Have a look for "estate" pipes on ebay. They clean up...
If you're particularly looking for an aromatic, my wife really likes Peter Stokkebye Kentucky Nougat...she always says I taste of chocolate if she kisses me whilst I'm smoking it :thumbup:
I'm finding EMP a great smoke at any time of day (we've got Dunhill in stock here in the UK).
