    Let's talk about cigar bands - but from a design perspective only. Forget the cigars that they're attached to. Don't concern yourself with whether the band influences your enjoyment or the likelihood of purchase or whether it's annoying to take off. This thread is all about looks - but not...

    What do you think is the most beautiful and/or handsome cigar bands out there? I just picked up a San Cristobal Revelation, and I gotta say: it's huge and very colorful. I also like the Eastern Standard Cream Crush Connecticut band, which is a drawing of an older bearded man in a Portrait.

    Hello fellow BOTL! So I started smoking cigars just over three months ago & I found myself saving my cigar bands. I was storing them inside an old cigar box that I also keep my lighter & cutter in. Well, I got to a point where I had to start sifting through the bands to find my lighter/cutter...
  5. Want to Sell/Trade (WTS)
    Hi folks, I'd like to trade a fiver or two for some cigar bands if someone has a bunch they wouldn't mind getting rid of. My Daughter is wanting to raise some Christmas money and is going to be building some cigar related items and I said I'd go try and scrounge up some bands for her. Looking...

    Give me a good reason & they are yours.
  7. Watches
    I'm looking for a casual watch that can take a beating (i.e. a watch for camping and other outdoors activities). I'm leaning towards a rubber or fabric strap since leather doesn't do as well when wet and metal just seems a little too formal for this use. My worry is that, while rubber will be...

    not the best picture but there you have it. So many bands buried in there, so many more bands tossed away, so many sticks w/o a band like a handful of Tat Face, TNT, etc. I would say that represents the past year & a majority of the cigars I've enjoyed. When I say I smoke a lot I meant it. the...

    I see in alot of cigar reviews that the reviewer hypes about the cigar band and always wonder how much this influences a buyer. I don't do much but identify a stick by the band but some times find one that I think looks nice. But I never spend alot of time studying them. How many here save...

    Whats the connection between Graycliff and Padilla having the same Edicion Limitado 2010 bands on sticks available through CI? Graycliff Platinum Edicion Limitado Presidente Padilla 1948 Edicion Limitada Robusto Rolled in the same factory for the same client?
  11. Cigar Contests
    Well, with the weekend over I decided Why not start the Monday off with a contest while I am in a position to hold one. The contest is simple.....Guess the bands! The one who guesses the right amount of bands will win. What will be won? A few good sticks of my choosing, nothing spectacular but...

    Hey everyone, I'm James from eastern Canada. Nice Site ! Straight up, I'm a non-smoker ... that confession out of the way (grin).... I am also "trying" to collect Cigar Tubes & bands for a hobby. You can see my problem already, right? I Love the designs and colors of the Tin Tubes -- and...
  13. Habanos Discussion
    I just read a post in another section where a member made a purchase and his order was shipped without the bands and the bands will follow. I watched a show on the USCustoms department where they stated that Americans go to Mexico buy cigars and try to bring them back by removing the bands. An...
  14. General Cigar Discussion
    Some consider me the "anti-snob" because I make it a practice to remove my cigar bands during my pre-light ritual. It's really not a statement against snobbery, but rather part of my minimalist philosophy. You see, when I go to a B&M, I always go with a full, three-finger case. Why? Simply...

    Hey guys does anyone have extra opus x bands laying around? I am a college student and for my art final I am painting a collection of opus x cigars and would like to line the frame in opus x bands/ use real bands on the cigars in the painting. Only problem is I have about 10 and need more...
  16. Habanos Discussion
    I have two different Bolivar bands: The left in a Finos and the right is from a PC. Now from info I've gathered these are just two different versions of the Bolivar band, the one on the right being the newest. My question; is there some sort of date that is indicated by the different bands? Or...
  17. Cigar Questions
    Okay guys. Like many, I keep the first band of every new cigar I smoke. Its fun to collect new bands. But the other 19 in the box go in the garbage. A friend and I have been putting together a cigar book with bands and reviews and I was wondering if anyone had any old bands laying around that...

    I received a box of DPG Serie JJ Madruo Selectos from C-Bid on Saturday. Of the 24 cigars, 20 have the current band and 4 had an older band. The box was sealed when I received it, which cuts out the possibility that C-Bid filled it with whatever singles it had around. There is a "packaged...

    Who has bought bands on the bay, and who does it regularly? I have never before, But recently I did take the plunge. Couldn't pass the deal up, and I couldn't find this size vitola anymore locally or online. I did do research on the seller, and he sells all sorts of harder to find Fuente...

    I'm a long-time LGC Serie R fan and have bought more than my share. Last time I was in a local B&M I spotted a box of Serie R #5s on the shelf with red ribbon foot bands. It seemed odd to me that after all this time LGC would change the presentation of these cigars. I don't know if it was just...
