the weather forecast told us, that there will be rain and thunderstorms today in middle germany and that the next days will be about 20°C. okay, there was some rain and low winds that blow the 37°C from this morning away. for 1 hour we have had about 22°C, and now at 5 PM it is nearly 30°C again. so the next days i think it’s good to know some colored short sleeved shirts in the cupboard. here some of my favorites. as you see: i love patterned shirts. pics | LTG

vintage DUKE KAHANAMOKU hawaiin shirt


vintage  HILO HATTIES, the hawaiin original



just a short visit @ this morning. back from hiking last sunday it is really terrible at the office: a lot of work, no time for nothing. but after getting my hair cut refreshed this morning @ OLLI THE BARBER i went to because KLAUS has had a surprise for me. damn, what a surprise!!! i’ll post later this week. beside he showed me some new stuff in a nutshell. i can tell you, the new GITMAN VINTAGE stuff is so nice. so i had to take this smart flannel shirt with me – perfect for colder winter days, so smooth, great color, old school pattern … just awesome and there are much more great shirts. the GITMAN VINTAGE stuff isn’t online yet, because it arrived yesterday afternoon. check out the next days for updates. pic | LTG


yesterday i have had a photo shooting for an upcoming campaign i am not allowed to talk or write about. the photos below were made before the shooting at casino, wiesbaden, germany, in between light and position tests. the shooting was made with a client of me and a german celebrity. it was really cool and smooth and the results are perfect. AND i got back home for the kickoff GERMANY vs. NETHERLANDS just to the point. why showing these photos? it’s funny, because of a complete outfit: NIGEL CABOURN oiled aircraft jacket, GITMAN VINTAGE shirt, JOHNSON MOTORS bandana, FILSON paded laptop bag, EDWIN ED-A1, POST OVERALLS vest … damn, the advertisement sticker is missing. i should talk about sponsoring with KLAUS, just joking, … and WOUTER, you found the LONG JOHN tag? pics | christian grau
