ONDURA DURABLE GOODS | THE PERFECT HORN COMB COMBINED WITH ITS PERFECT LEATHER CASE

Every morning after I pulled on my Tellason denim, I put a knife into the right front pocket and a comb to the left back pocket. As using pomade daily a good working comb is a-must-have for me. And since decades I am looking for the perfect comb. Sometimes I thought I found the one I was looking for, but I was never perfectly satisfied. But since I got my Ondura Durable Goods combs I think I can stop looking for the perfect comb. The combs lie perfect in the hand and it makes me every time smile when I use one of these beauties, because they work best. Not to heavy, not to light – just perfect. The combs are made of real horn and each one is unique by its color, signed with a small Ondura logo on one side. And what I like most is that every comb comes in a special leather case. I can’t stop touching these … The cases are available in 3 color ways: tan, brown and black and I can’t tell you what I like most. They are made of 1.5 mm thick high quality natural vegetable tanned calf leather. Very nice! I am really excited about the patina the cases will show by using them hard. You can feel that this comb and case combination is made to last. And the size is perfect too: 15 cm x 5 cm x ca. 1 cm fits every back pocket very well. This is what I mean when I am talking about “LIFE TIME GEAR”! You’ll find these and other great stuff at: www.ondura.de

“STAY BEARDED” SNAPBACK CAP | by THE OLD STREET BARBER CO

I hate this f***ing and senseless discussion about having a beard or not, and even more talking about  being a hipster because having a beard … ??? A beard is just a beard! A sign of manliness, something you live with, something you have to care about … a part of you. I just feel sorry for those, who wear a beard as a sign of fashion or trend. Me, I wear different beard forms since the early 90s, but never without since this time. Everything started with a typical „GRUNGE” beard and I asserted that my head looked a bit smaller with it – an optical decision for the first time. I tried a lot of beard styles from the mustache over a “Coop” to this full beard today, sometimes shorter, sometimes longer, sometimes fuller, sometimes straight. So my devise is: “STAY BEARDED” and show the world that your beard however it looks like is YOUR statement, YOUR statement of personality and not a f***ing fashion trend. I was so happy when I found this great snapback at the THE OLD STREET BARBER CO website. They do grooming products for bearded men. I will test these soon. The caps are limited editions. At the flat peak I am working on, because I don’t like this style so much. It is high quality made, THE OLD STREET BARBER CO labeled inside and the 3D “STAY BEARDED” embroidery is awesome. And great they give me 2 pins with the caps that made my day already! pics | LTG

 

 

BYRD POMADE | HAIRDO PRODUCTS

At first just a “Must-Have-Thing” because of BYRDs the wonderful classic and simple design. Love this. But now – a “Must-Have-Thing” because of the perfect use and results. Found these great pomades @ Soul Objects, Berlin, Germany – where else? And my secret of the perfect use is to use both pomades at the same time – just mixed up. This is an unbeatable mixture in look and hold. Usually I don’t like water-based pomades so much because if you did your style, your pomp must last for the rest of the day. When you use a wax based one you always can re-style your pomp or hairdo, but sometimes you need the hold of a water based pomade … so … easy … mix’em up. And I love the citron smell of both so much. What a nice discovery! Thx soul brother Kornelius for offering this great shit made in California, USA, in Berlin and your Online Store! About the pocket comb beside its great look and design: These are made in collaboration with “FUTURE FINS”: “BYRD’S POCKET COMB IS DESIGNED AND MANUFACTURED IN CALIFORNIA UTILIZING A VERSATILE COMPOSITE FROM FUTURES’ LEGENDARY SURFBOARD FINS. THIS MATERIAL IS DURABLE,  FLEXIBLE AND COMFORTABLE TO USE WITH ALL HAIR TYPES.” What should I say? Perfect in use too. Men, get your yellow/black BYRD stuff … you will not have regrets … pics | LTG
