Welcome to The Pipes Magazine Radio Show Episode 505! We have two guests tonight. In our featured segment we have Fred Hanna returning. Fred is a well-known pipe collector, author, and speaker at pipe shows. He has a PhD. in psychology and teaches the same at the Chicago Campus at Adler University. He is also author of the book, “The Perfect Smoke”. This is the seventh in a recurring series with a long form discussion of pipe and tobacco questions sent in by our listeners. In the opening “Pipe Parts” segment, our guest is Ash from The Chap’s Guide YouTube Channel. This will also be a recurring series with practical tips on things like dressing sharply, hats, watches, journaling and many other areas that tend to cross over with pipe enthusiast’s interests. Tonight, we will chat about tailoring. Sit back, relax with your pipe, and enjoy The Pipes Magazine Radio Show!

  • Ash’s insights and suggestions are always both informative and useful to the gentleman who wishes to dress well. My own “bespoke” suits are made by Omar, best known for crafting creative campsite canvas canopies.
    I completely agree with both Fred and you with regard to the impact, positive and negative, of the internet on the pipe smoking community. I think the most harmful aspect is that of its impersonal human contact. There is a warmth in “face-to-face” interaction, and a necessity to be civil, that is completely lost “on-line.”
    Guy Clark’s “Cornmeal Waltz” was just wonderful.

  • I greatly enjoyed the show. I really liked Ash’s explanation of the difference in “bespoke” suits versus the garments we normally by. Bespoke wear you can recognize instantly. The higher quality of fabric is amazing and how they fit is simply amazing. Unfortunately I get mine at the same place Homer Simpson does. I can’t afford to shop at Omar’s.
    Great interview with Fred. He is just a joy to listen to. Fred has never been snobbish about his pipes. He has his preference in pipes (which he is fairly militant about) but doesn’t bother him in the least what others collect or accumulate. I agree with Fred that the loss of civility on the internet is devastating. While I occasionally chafe under the system that Kevin employs, I fully agree that people display amazing tolerance of each other on the Forums pages.
    I loved the Guy Clarke (sp?) song. It was done in an old 30’s or 40’s style. Very refreshing and very enjoyable. He’s not for most people who want to listen to five guys plugged in to a wall.
