This 1ST PAT-RN jacket is for sure one of my most beloved pieces. It is manufactured in Veneto, Italy, from the iconic and exclusive “Cavalry di Maglia” fabric, the backbone of 1ST PAT-RN. They offer an alternative woven knitted fabric which keeps the shape due to a special jersey instead of a woven lining. I love the mix of the casual fabric and the timeless, classic cut with these wonderful copper buttons issued from Italian Navy supplier on the front and cuffs. – inspired by heritage workwear and military style. Some more facts: 100% Cotton | Hopsack Di Maglia Knitted Fabric | Naval Copper Buttons | Three Front Pockets | Two Internal Pockets | Working Button Cuff | Made in Italy. I know that you get the VITTORIO VENETO Jacket @ superdenim, cultizm, kafka, The Bureau Belfast, Franz und Emil und B74. pics | LTG


yesterday i got a mail from MARKUS SCHLEICH. i met him first @ MÄNNERABEND in illingen last year and we talked a lot. he is a creative man with best taste and a lot of ideas and very friendly. MARKUS send me some pics of his beloved MAMNICK CHIPPE FORK / BOTTLE OPENER to show this the LIFE TIME GEAR readers, because he is absolutely hooked by the small gimmick. he combines it with the “CAMPBELL COLE – SIMPLE KEY WRAP”. seems to be a perfect duo. here some facts about the MAMNICK thing: “… Laser cut and hand-finished from hardened and tempered Sheffield stainless steel the Mamnick multi-tool is an essential piece of man kit! It can be kept on a key-ring (included) or put on a chain (not included) and if your a festival goer you’ll find that this is the only piece of kit you’ll ever need to take. This product comes in a hand-stamped box made from recycled materials wrapped in a piece of black irish linen …” both, the fork and the key wrap are made in england. for more details check the links above. and thanks MARKUS for the beautiful pictures. i will do my order later. pics | MARKUS SCHLEICH


italian high-end eyewear and sunglasses manufacturer L.G.R. did a collaboration with KLAR, my favorite optician at my hometown DARMSTADT, germany. AKRAM, owner of KLAR, send me a short video teaser of the collab – really interesting! so i did some pics of this special sunglasses handmade in italy. L.G.R. and KLAR did a strictly 20 limited pieces model which has a special color combination just used for this collab. every piece has its own product number from 1 to 20, a special case and a cleaning cloth with a L.G.R. X KLAR print. the glass is made by BABERINI, polarized in grey/blue – one of the best real glasses you can get today. beside these sunglasses KLAR sells certainly other collections from L.G.R. f.ex. the wonderful and although limited SAFARI COLLECTION. pics | LTG
