The Chap (magazine) is leading the battle to bring back the pipe in fashion (along with hats, doffing and the likes).

Due to high prices Reed, loose tobacco is getting rather popular in the UK and those European countries where cigs are expensive.

Loose tobacco does smell fantastic.

My maternal side grandad used to smoke a pipe, he did crown green bowls too. Those two things go hand in hand.

I used to smoke a pipe. For non-tobacco smokers it was generally the only alternative...

Croute has the most wide-ranging reading habits of anyone on here: Fortean Times, The Chap, Supertifo, Le Temps. It's genuinely impressive.

In the unlikely event that anyone will be interested in the resolution of UA and AdC's discussion on the spelling of happy / happi, the Hepburn system.

Pipe tobacco tastes pretty nice, I think, though it's not been near my gob since I tried it in about 1982.

See, I reckon I could easily smoke a pipe, if it didn't make you look like you were from 1958 (or worse, make you look like you were trying to look like you were from 1958). I don't think I normally make "lifestyle choices" on that kind of basis, but pipes are an "I don't care what this looks like" too far.

if that is what tobacco smells like, what exactly do they put in cigarettes?

Factory made cigs have saltpetre in to keep them alight (and a whole bunch of other chemicals I'm sure.)

Brookes And Brookes, Rotherham's leading tobacconist has just shut down, after a hundred years of business.

A sad but inevitable side effect of smoking's decline. Our tobaccanist in Old Stevenage was run by a jolly little Belgian called M. de Pienne who sold us kids clay pipes to blow bubbles with. On trips to London I loved going to the custom tobacco shops in Burlington Arcade. There was one at the top, across from Savile Row, that specialised in pipes and pipe tobacco maybe its still there I dunno. I scored my Dad a green stained briar once. Buying him anything unusual is always a risk, he's tragically conservative in his habits, but he really liked that pipe. He generally had two or three at different stages of mellowing, and that one one was with him for ages.

In the days when I smoked myself I'd go and sample the custom made and exotic cigarettes in the other stores. Occasionally splashing out on a packet of these:

Really they were all about the picture and the name, made a statement doncha know. Or, if feeling even campier, a box of Cocktail Sobranie were totally fab:

Good God, Amor.

I haven't seen Cocktail Sobranje for 25 years . . .
