The last month I presented some stuff from RINOUMA MADE IN JAPAN available @ B74, Frankfurt. Different wallets, brass hooks, leather and brass card cases –  today I will show you the classic RINOUMA bags and a simple but so beautiful belt. The “CITY BAGS” are from RINOUMAS flagship leather combination line named RNBL featuring 20oz. paraffin coating water-resistant canvas, vegetable tanned leather, 2.0 mm-thick cotton tape, #10 YKK Japanese metal zipper with golden brass color, and premium brass metal parts – all materials 100% Japanese. The “CITY BAG” is available with strap and without in 3 different sizes. The leather RINOUMA uses for bags and this beautiful belts is a 4 mm thick grade steer hide which is tanned in one of the highest quality Japanese tanneries since 1937. The Japanese Craftsmen need 20 steps making this leather. It is a very old saddle leather making process with a lot of hand made processes. At first the leather is put to a light tanning pit, than to a little deeper, and so on. It takes about 3 months for a real deep tanning – without any chrome additions. So the leather soaks the maximum of tannin and the density of this gets very deep. Another effect is that the weight gets much heavier compared to normal leather. If you are interested in RINOUMA stuff don’t hesitate to write Kami owner of B74 – info@b-74.de – or give him a call +49 69 293329. B74 has a nice and fine selection of RINOUMA stuff in stock. pics | LTG


What a lucky break. When visiting KAMI c/o B74 in Frankfurt some days ago, i found this nice little wallet lying in a glass cabinet. Didn’t noticed this TANNER GOODS classic before. It is their so called “WORKADAY WALLET” with enough space for many banknotes and a lot of cards. Great to put this little thing in the back pocket of your denim or chino. It is combined with waxed canvas and smooth leather. KAMI told me that there was a special edition which combined leather with this f***ing nice flashy orange hunting canvas. If anyone still has one of these please send me a message – thx. Isn’t the combination with my vintage TANNER GOODS card holder great? I wanna use the WW just for notes, not for cards. The other WW is owned by KAMI. He has his WW in use for about one year. Kami has left some wallets – if you can’t get your WORKADAY WALLET there please check the European distributors website: www.amtraq.com pics | LTG

when i sold my cargo BULLIT bike i had to check another possibility to transport larger shopping stuff when i am on the road with my SCHINDELHAUER. so i remembered me the days before i got my BULLIT: yes, in the closet there had be a big CANOE PACK from DULUTH. i knew why i did not sell this wonderful backpack. it’s unbelievable what you can put into this 19H x 18W x 6D pack. when i shop food i use a special basket which i bought with the pack. believe me, this is really practicable and easy to carry. the #2 CRUISER COMBO is made in the usa & guaranteed for life. by standard it is made in olive drab or waxed 18-ounce canvas but a lot of other colors from blue to orange are available too. for more information check the DULUTH site. be careful there are a lot of other must-have bags and packs … pics | LTG


this pretty thing isn’t mine. UWE E. MAIER c/o AMTRAQ DISTRIBUTION gave it to me filled with new TELLASON STUFF just borrowed. this charcoal colored EVERYDAY TOTE by TANNER GOODS is so nice worn in and broken in that i had to take some pics before giving it back. the bag is constructed from a strout of waxed 18 oz. filter twill canvas and HORWEEN RICH CHROMEXCEL leather. all components are secured by solid brass rivets and four button studs. it has external pockets, a zippered pocket inside and adjustable straps. the dimensions are 15″ tall x 13″ wide x 6″ deep. so nice – UWE, you own a wonderful tote bag. pics | LTG


found this shop because of a post from a BootOC (Boot Owners Club) member. the SNAKE OIL PROVISIONS exclusive POINTER BRAND DOUBLE NEEDLE CHORE JACKET made of duck canvas is so nice. check the details: green double-needle stitching, white contrast breast pocket with snap, antique brass buttons and a pen pocket. the jacket is hand-sewn in bristol, tennessee. with the indigo chore jacket and the navy duck canvas one it is the same: just simple as nice – great. and with the price it is the same. the S.O.P exclusive is 155 $, the indigo denim 135 $ and the navy duck canvas 90$.  pics | Snake Oil Provisions

a friend of mine send me the pics of this wonderful RWS boot. and the best is, that you can get it actually via eBay for your lady! it is a EU size 37 – check the tag in the pic below. this boot is absolutely rare and you can’t get it anymore, anywhere. the RWS leather is combined with waxed canvas – what a nice combination. we hope that this boot will go to a girl or a lady who knows and loves the special feature of this boot – this is definitely a life time gear piece! pics | HS


one of my absolute favorites of my boot & shoe cupboards: the 1912 introduced MAIN HUNTING SHOE. this boot was LEON LEONWOOD BEAN’S very first product. it is a pity, the one i own is just a bit too small. the boot fits only with very thin socks and so the comfort is not the best when walking some time. i think i had to change the boot in a one size up bigger one. good to know that this boot isn’t so expensive at all. an absolutely must-have boot: an american icon which is still handstitched and checked for quality right there in MAINE! pics | LTG
