Hmm. I wonder if part of the perception of douchebaggery comes from the fact that--as I'm grokking from this thread--pipe smokers really like to talk about tobacco brands etc. as part of the ritual of pipe smoking.
I can't quote chapter and verse (my wizard hat is off to you) but it was really about Gandalf with his pipe between his knees in the Mines of Moria... taking the time to try and figure out what to do next.
Because that's what smoking is, and what non-smokers will never understand. It's reflection, it's a pause in the moment, a break in the timeline. It's unbelievably relaxing (probably due to the drug) and gives you something to do while you think.
