LTG BOOT & SHOE COLLECTION | 26 | VIBERG SERVICE BOOT 1950 WITH VIBRAM 4014 WHITE CRISTY SOLE

2 months ago i did a post about my VIBERG SERVICE BOOT 1950 in black with a DAINITE SOLE. todays #26 boot of my collection is the same boot just brown colored with another sole, the WHITE CRISTY VIBRAM 4014. as the pics show, i did not wear this boot so often. i prefer the black SERVICE BOOT with its DAINITE SOLE much more. i think this sole fits the look of the boot much better. the #4014 is comfortable but it looks like a contemporary compromise to me. when i wear this boot sometimes i think if i wear a hybrid between a RED WING BOOT and a VIBERG. for sure this VIBERG SERVICE BOOT is a really perfect and best made boot but not my favorite one. if it might be yours, you can get it @ volls.de.  pics | LTG

10 MUST-HAVE-X-MAS-PRESENTS | #09 | TANNER GOODS WORKMAN WALLET

i love my wallets from TANNER GOODS. so i needed these in black and oxblood. as you see in the pics below the oxblood colored is my favorit. i own it now for a year and since i got it, i wore it nearly everyday. just changed sometimes to the black one or the TANNER GOODS card holder. the wallets are made of 3.5 oz HORWEEN CHROMEXCEL, feature four cards slots in which you can put easily more than just one card, two interior pockets for cash and receipts, one zippered coin pocket, which i do not use because of avoiding my cards crashing. each wallet is burnished, dyed, waxed and stamped with the TANNER GOODS signature maker’s mark by hand. the oxblood wallet i usually combine with the original LONG TETHER and sometimes with a lanyard from PETER FIELDS. the black one i combine with an OBBI GOOD LABEL wallet chain i got from BURG & SCHILD. AMTRAQ does the distribution for TANNER GOODS in germany, austria, switzerland, netherlands and belgium. please check this link where to get this perfect wallets: AMTRAQ stockists. pics | LTG


TANNER GOODS x WOODLANDS | EXCLUSIVELY INDIGO TANNER GOODS STUFF

what a nice found @ wonderful woodlands site: the INDIGO WOODLANDS promotion, watching at some really nice blue colored TANNER GOODS stuff. here is what WOODLANDS say about their promotion: “Spring time in the Northwest means we can look forward to a few of our favorite things, all in shades of blue. Fresh wild blueberries from the slopes of Mt. Adams, the clouds parting for periodic blue skies [a welcome sight this time of year.] or coming up on a clean copy of Donald Byrd’s Blackbyrd [Blue Note Records, 1975] at our local digging spot. In the spirit of blue, we’re excited to offer our Standard Belt and Key Lanyard in an Indigo Chromexcel colorway, exclusive at The Woodlands and both make for the perfect companion to a new pair of denim from 3sixteen, Tellason and Rogue Territory. Additionally for the next week,  we are offering a special Indigo package. Simply navigate to the Indigo collection page to purchase a brand new pair of denim,  and an Indigo Standard belt of your choice for a specially discounted package price.” i like this bklue leather stuff: is something different than all these tan, brown or black, redwood pieces. maybe UWE c/o AMTRAQ DISTRIBUTION will bring this navy stuff sometime to germany. pics | WOODLANDS
