    A) My mother worked in the fashion industry (in NYC) and every story she has involves everyone smoking.

    B) I no longer live in the city.

    Okay with those two pieces out of the way (even if NYC is your only frame of reference) is there class status/fashion-able status attributed to one brand or the other?

    I like Nat Sherman cigarettes. But that has never really impressed anyone :run:

    But then again I don't start shouting "OH FUCK THAT IS LOW CLASS" if someone starts smoking Black & Milds at a party...so maybe people just don't care either way.

    Your thoughts?

    i think that as long as they're any of the mainstream brands, no one will think anything of it. but yeah i dont think anyone's going to look at your Dunhill cigs and be very impressed

    i've found Parliaments to be very popular with people my demographic (young professionals)

    and regardless of brand, i think menthols have the reputation of being 'ghetto'

    Most people I know smoke Marlboro Light, Benson or Lucky Strike.

    :dunno:

    But they'll smoke anything if they're craving.

    noticed a lot of marb lights, dunhill every now and then, and parliaments b/c you can sniff a bump out the filter divit.

    I thought I had moved to a redneck city but there is apparently an uppity cigar shop not too far from here that is a distributor of Nat Sherman....fingers crossed for them carrying the cigarettes in addition to the cigars....so I don't need to online order :greddy:

    Some of my friends used to sneak bumps of coke into clubs by putting it in the filter recessions.

    That's why Parliaments were so popular in my frat :hs:

    I didn't understand why.

    Until I saw....you know.

    All fucking cigarettes make you smell like ass. And you're just stupid if you think otherwise.

    in my experience, no one really says or thinks much of what brand you have (unless it's one of those 2 or 3 dollar a pack brands)
