After my tough time scrounging up ten lords-a-leaping, I decided to pretty much ignore the real interpretation of the pipers piping lyric, and go with smoking pipe-related wares. It’s not that I condone smoking, so, no real pipes here, please. But there’s something about the design that has a comforting vintage whimsy, much like my favorite moustache-themed gear. Also, I’m a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, so these picks are elementary, my dear Watson.
