Customized iconic Red Wing #877. Found – where else – on a Japanese Twitter Account (MaH @MaH53137643). I like this kind of customizing with that fat soles and higher heels a lot. But beside soles and heels there is another fine custom thing that looks great and is very practical at these 8-inch Classic Moc: speed hooks! What a perfect #877 … pics | MaH @MaH53137643
Hi guys, first of all, I hope you start 2017 well! I will start this year with one of my most favorit topics: CHEVY CAMARO. Found this crazy concept just some days ago at “superchevy.com”. How does Keith Kaucher write to the point: “How many poor souls have lost their prized Camaro because of a new arrival to the family? Admittedly, the Camaro has never been at the top of the list when it comes to a practical family car.” It is the same with me today with my 5th gen. Mostly I drive my orange beast alone, but that’s for sure okay ;-))) So this concept from 2009 could have been the solution for a hybrid between a Camaro and a Sport Wagon. The 68 front is combined by 68 – 72 GM mid-size wagon roof narrowed to fit the F-body.
KAUTCHER CUSTOMS brought this concept to real with a 69′ Camaro. Isn’t it awesome?!

Always nice to get a present. Even nicer when it is like this – great! Olli The Barber gave me the wonderful LIFETIME LEATHER CO mug when I got my haircut refreshed one week ago. LIFETIME LEATHER CO produce all their stuff by hand in Arizona. This style is named LINE 19. The Mason Jar is a 16 ounce glass, lid included. The cover and the saddle stitched hand hold are made of durable American saddle leather with an embossed LIFETIME LEATHER CO logo. They do different sorts and sizes of bags, belts, key chains, wallets … the complete leather range and all things can be customized f.ex with your name or initials. Visit the LIFETIME LEATHER CO shop @ ETSY. pics | LTG
As a passionated CAMARO lover I got touched so much by this news. It sounds quite simple what CR SUPERCARS® does, but it is so amazing and much more than just putting some high-tech stuff to an older car. NO – CR SUPERCARS® never loose the responsibility for the classic and heritage look and philosophie of the original they work with: „CR Supercars is a new division of Classic Recreations and is dedicated to building turn-key supercars with styling from classic American muscle cars mated to the latest high-tech engine and chassis components. The result is an incredible pro touring car with desirable lines of the most classic muscle car in history.” Right now they presented their 1969 CAMARO project “CR1” @ SEMA. The look of the blue „recreated“ CAMARO is damn nice but you can choose between 7 colors. My favorite? No discussion: orange. You can upgrade this beast with a LS9 GM Performance to 685 H.P! There are a lot of specs which make your Chevy or Muscle Car heart beat so fast … the price also, but I am sure the money is better invested in a CR1 CAMARO than in so many todays soulless f***ing expensive sportcars which look so similar … pics | www.crsupercars.com
damn, so much work here the last days. sorry for the blog post delay, but it’s even better: it’s more than 4 weeks ago i picked up these 2 great motive shirts made by BRACK CUSTOM GRAPHICS @ vollls.de. i didn’t have the time to take off the price tags. okay, i decided to do a blog post before i will remove the tags … so it happened this evening – finally. you must know, i’m not really a friend of motive shirts, but there are some exceptions like the one – for sure not all prints! – from f.ex. JOHNSON MOTORS, FAT BOY CLOTHING, CXXVI CLOTHING CO or THE REAL McCOYS. when i saw these special drag race retro shirts for the first time at a facebook post done by my buddy KLAUS VOLL, i knew i must get these as a huge us car and custom culture aficionado. the shirts are made by HARRY BRACK, a graphic designer „who grew up in the 1970s surrounded by Hanna Barbera, Hot Wheels and monsters. Influenced by artists such as Robert Williams, Jim Phillips, Jim Flora and others, his greatest inspiration today comes from the subculture, particularly the car and motorcycle clubs, garages and the racing festival he is organizing. He is specialized in illustration and silk screen printing. Since 1993 he’s creating custom designs for rock bands, clothing brands and for the hot rod and motorcycle culture. In 2009 he opened the Harry Damson Speed Shop in Berlin together with his buddy FRANK DAMSON as a hotspot for designers and enthusiasts of the classic car and motorcycle culture. HARRY DAMSON started as an outlet for his t-shirt brand BRACK KUSTOM GRAPHICS and fellow artists who create fine art, clothings and crafts.” the art work and the contents of this are really great. the blue shirt shows the famous 1965s MELROSE MISSILE, PLYMOUTH and the natural white one DON COOK’S DAMN YANKEE CUDA who was driven by PAT FOSTER. beside, the quality of the shirts is amazing … available @ volls.de, not online but just give KLAUS an email or a call. pics | LTG

yes, yes, yes – this is it! i love the #101 – the POSTMAN. my first pair was a present from KLAUS c/o VOLLS.DE. i know this post is something special for shoe nerds … but sorry, this is a RED WING SHOE for real RED WING LOVERS and not for fashion pussies! and the best: the customized #101 means for me one step further. hm, what do you think? would you prefer the one with the original cushion sole or the customized #101 one with the nitrile black cork sole, you may know f.ex. from RED WING’S black IRON RANGER #8114? i love the #101 look with this heel construction. it reminds me a classic U.S. navy officer shoe. but i like both and i won’t give one of them away because for me they are different shoes. KAMI c/o RED WING SHOE STORE FRANKFURT/GERMANY made the customized #101 for me. i can’t remember if the first miles with the original #101 hurt so much as they do with the customized one. damn. everyday i wear them just a few hours indoor and i am happy to get them off. but … it’s okay. the day will come when they got broken – this shoe is worth the trouble! pics | LTG
damn, when i saw this pics i thought it was a joke, a 3D-illustration … but, but, hm, f*** it isn’t. this car is real. it is driving sorry, for me this CAMARO SS is a pure “BLING BLING” nightmare made byRIDING CLEAN and 813 CUSTOMS in florida, usa. horror on wheels. this car is so f***ing ugly that you must watch the pics and the video which is named KING CAMARO. so poor … believe me: it is unbelievable … pics & vid | RIDING CLEAN
half a year ago i did a blog post about a KUDU INDY BOOT by ALDEN for BUREAU BELFAST and i was really fascinated about this great looking antelope leather. BUREAU BELFAST right now got 2 other KUDU styles from ALDEN: a BLUCHER and a WORK BOOT. both fitted with a custom vibram sole, dark brown eyelets, flat cotton laces and a reverse split welt. the rare KUDU leather has an oil finish. certainly is this ALDEN stuff hand made in the USA. what a wonderful footwear! pics | The Bureau Belfast
