Pipe and Slippers - Traditional Appeal
The second in our occasional Pipe and Slippers Man series. If the Porsche pipe was a bit too space-age for you, we've a more traditional offering from Blakemar this time round. A more traditional pairing. Not to say you can't build up a collection and mix and match as you see fit. No rules at The Tweed Pig.
Incidentally pipe lovers, I was in Amsterdam last week and popped into Hajenius, the cigar and pipe retailer and lounge, a couple of times. They have a serious collection of pipes. I'll try and do a Condensed Amsterdam (in the style of Condensed Madrid and Easy Weekend in London) soon and we'll delve into Hajenius a bit more.
Blakemar Vest Pocket Pipe
Hand-made in the UK, Blakemar's Vest Pocket is from the De Luxe range. Designed with portability in mind, you can twist the mouthpiece and pop it into your weskit pocket.
Tricker's Churchill Slipper
The version of Tricker's Churchill slipper you see here, perhaps surprisingly, was sold through asos—out of stock now. It's an Albert-style slipper, embroidered with gold thread, and has a velvet upper, leather sole and quilted lining. Tricker's do slippers with leather and quilted linings. You may find, as I do, that the quilted lining is better suited to home slipper-wear than leather lining. A handsome slipper indeed. I must look into slippers with a pig embroidered on the front.
