The guys from TELLASON Pete and Tony – the makers of the one and only denim I wear since 4 years: GUSTAVE 14.75 oz. Sometimes I think that this thing was just made for me 😉 – did a new Shirt, which also could be an absolute favorite of my Life Time Gear collection. The CLAMPTON SHIRT is a TELLASON icon. It is a classic workwear styled shirt not only because of the look and the aesthetic but also because of its functional details. It is made in San Francisco of finely woven “Salt & Pepper” 7.5 oz Japanese selvedge – raw and unwashed. This CLAMPDOWN has so nice details like the triple needle stitching on the sides and underarm seams and these wonderful selvedge details at the side gussets and under the pocket flaps –I love this! Don’t forget the Corozo buttons and the TELLASON pencil you’ll get with the shirt. A great addition is the new BANDANA-3-PACK including a red, white and navy one, made of 100 cotton in the USA and printed in Oakland, California. The size is 21″ x 21″. Every bandana has another printing: The “CLASSIC” in navy, the „GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE” and the “FLETCH” dedication. This one shows quotations from the film “FLETCH” … an interesting idea and good looking too! I like the typography on the bandana a lot … this is something different compared to a “normal” bandana. The same with the GOLDEN GATE motive – quite nice design! Curios? Check the AMTRAQ site for dealers where to buy this nice stuff or contact Kami @ B74.
last week i got my awesome LTG buckel made by FEINSCHMUCK back with a new dark chocolate brown leather belt. this was well done by ALEXANDER v. BRONEWSKI who is doing the great BECAUSE blog. now the belt is perfect. it is made of a very nice and strong SCHACHENMEYER leather and ALEX did the perfect size for me: best fit! and he put a really great surprise on to the belt: inside the belt he embossed my initials EJ and LTG with two stars. great idea! thank you so much ALEX! pics | LTG
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
long time ago OLLI THE BARBER and me had the idea to develop something in collaboration for maybe selling or just give away to good friends. so OLLI did this lanyard for long wallets or knives out of goatskin. i love it. the pieces you see in the photos are just samples. we think about other possibilities for fixation, f.ex. fishhooks. the project is still in progress but i think it looks very good right now and believe me, the lanyard is so strong but flexible at the same time – and very well looking. the knot technic is absolutely perfect. no adhesive is used, the leather holds itself. never saw this before. great idea OLLI! and thank you so much to do a little lanyard for my little LEVI’S REDMOON wallet. see you tomorrow morning for my hair cut refreshed talking about our OTB vs. LTG projects … pics | LTG
