"Not for him were Fatimas, Chesterfields, Camels, or Lucky Strikes."

Fatima cigarettes featured a blend of Turkish tobaccos but were produced in the United States. They were phase out of production by about 1980.

Chesterfield is a brand of American cigarettes named for Chesterfied County, Virginia, and popular in the early 20th century. They are still being made.

Camel is a brand of American cigarettes containing a blend of Turkish and Virginia tobacco.

Lucky Strike is a brand of American cigarettes featuring tobacco that's toasted rather than sun-dried.

All these brands carry a certain amount of cachet, but they're evidently not good enough for Elliott, who prefers Egyptian cigarettes. However, by 1919, Egyptian cigarettes were falling out of fashion.
