Pipes and Berets
A man without a pipe is like a man without a beret, as the old saying goes and South Pacific Berets now offers a small collection of traditional pipes to make that perfect accompaniment.
In a time and age where smoking is frowned upon (to say the least), it is good to remember that smoke from a pipe is not inhaled and instead of fulfilling a need for nicotine, pipe-smoking is all about enjoyment, contemplation and achieving a few moments of serenity.
The very act of lighting the pipe, holding and smoking it will take the mind of troubles and induce a relaxed frame of mind.
And yes, these qualities mix very well with the sentiments behind wearing a beret; even the old beret labels testify of this relationship.
