    There is a lot of great information and examples of pipe restorations at dadspipes.com if any of the pipes need a bit more than a basic clean.

    James Fox opposite Trinity gates or Peterson further up in Nassau street. Fox’s used to do a selection pack with a couple of pipefulls of each of their most popular brands.

    It's cheaper to buy petersons or j fox tobacco online from US stores (including shipping) than buying from the store.

    Shop local. If footfall sales decline to the uneconomic level shops close and we are all the poorer. I'd be interested to see a price comparison and examples from your experience, especially if you only want a tin or two!

    I bought my last few (2nd hand) pipes on eBay. There is a good selection of them, but it happened my purchases came from the same seller over the years.

    I also got one custom made a few years ago. Like it a lot.

    I don't know if you have got them since, you probably have but sometimes they take their time in customs so I wouldn't worry. If customs keep them, they will send you a letter.

    Anyone buy pipe tobacco online since the new VAT rules came in? Has there been anything different?
