Sweet Holy Jeans!
One thing I noticed when I was trying to smoke in the car was that I have never ever ever burned a hole (even partially) in jeans, while I have in every other type of material, with a leather jacket (the hard leather kind) I have noticed the same thing. It looks like a leather jacket and jeans are impervious to this as it has never happened (not even discoloration) in a whole year. Has anyone else noticed this or am I just getting lucky?

I've never burnt jeans, even standing in a fire. I have ripped them though.
As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

I suppose one could burn heavy denim or leather, but it would probably take a concerted effort.
I have burned leather (it now has a burn mark) -- a lit cigar that was in the ashtray rolled onto it and I didn't notice it for a while -- apparently long enough to burn it. It doesn't look pretty, but it's just a surface mark.
Hmm, I wear khakis and usually a wool coat in the winter while driving to work. Have never burnt anything (yet!!)
How is it you are burning your clothes?
When I smoked cigs I managed to burn just about every bit of clothing I had. Since I switched to the pipe, not a thing...
Once in awhile I'll get an ember from my pipe that jumps out and singes something. When I smoked cigarettes I burned everything including between my fingers as I tried to pull it out from my lips and the cigarette stayed glued to my lips and the cherry burned me between my fingers. SOB that hurt. That is a very tender part of the hand.
@jpberg I typically wear synthetic work-out clothing a lot and polyster and nylon apparently burn extremely well... Hot ash will fall out of the pipe from puffing wrong every once and a while and melt my clothing. I fixed this by wearing a leather jacket and jeans and just realized I've never had it happen to them. I am also using a large cob in the car called "The General," so I don't have hot ash comming out so much as I don't fill it up all the way while in the car.
Maybe get one of the metal wind caps for your pipe if you drive with the windows down while smoking. They're cheap and they work.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.
I have burned a couple holes in some of my shirts...

The cheap metal windcaps are very difficult to put on and remove, there's no hinge for easy use.
Dress slacks burn nicely....
