This DeLorean concept is maybe the most beautiful Electric Car I’ve ever seen. The “DeLorean Motor Company (DMC)” became famous because of its star role in the blockbuster “Back To The Future”. Car designer Angel Guerra did “a tribute to this icon that marked his childhood” with this concept. Next year “Back To The Future” will celebrate its 40th anniversary. Guerra did the best birthday present to DMC and the fans of this outstanding car and iconic film. Find much more pics at Guerra’s Website and Instagram account … and don’t forget to follow him!
In 1976, Banzai Inc. released one of the most timeless skateboard designs in the culture’s history. Made entirely from anodized aluminum and featuring one of the world’s first double kicktails, it went on to become an icon of sidewalk surfing. 43 years after its initial release the original Banzai is back with a limited edition rerun. Limited to 50 pieces per color and size, two board sizes (23.5” & 28.5”) were reproduced in collaboration with the rights holder of the original Banzai trademark. Each Banzai skateboard comes in a high-grade collector’s box featuring signed art prints by David Carson, Jay Nelson, Nathaniel Russell, Todd Glaser or Cole Barash. All boards come with grippy urethane wheels, custom ceramic bearings, lightweight trucks, stainless mounting parts and a respective tool. Due to their hand-brushed finish the boards can be skated without grip tape and can be considered nearly water-proof. Maybe the most durable collector’s item of all time. I was no Skateboarder at any time, but I saw this beautiful collectors case at Amtraq who will distribute Banzai … and this box fits perfect to one of my office walls.
these are great moments: taking an envelope out of the postbox with an absolute unexpected surpise. THE LAST DON, one of my most estimated blogger buddies did a pre-x-mas present to me. i got the one and only LTG LEATHER WALLET STRAP hand made by THE LAST DON. great: what a nice look and what a smooth leather. when i hold it for the first in my hands i knew at once which of my wallets would fit best … take a look at the pics. if DON SCHWEDE knew this? … intuition? … whatever, DON made me happy. pics | LTG
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
OLI BREMERICH is what BONIFATIUS was for the catholics: a missionary. something like a missionary for all those guys in the sticks around ILLINGEN, SAARLAND, germany, who do not know what good denim and boots mean. ILLINGEN? where the f*** is ILLINGEN? okay, found it on the map: it is a small village 20 km in the north of SAARBRUECKEN just a spy away from the french border in the west of germany. it is really small with around 16.800 people who live there. and one of them is OLI. he runs the shop i do not know, but i think in third generation. the store was founded in 1934! BREMERICH JEANS sells japanese denim, american workwear, heavy boots and all the other stuff we like. in ILLINGEN?, you may ask – yes indeed, and it works! so it will get exciting visiting his 8TH “MAENNERABEND” tonight. a lot of clients and friends were invited and the guys from EAT DUST, PASSIONFRANCE®, RED WING SHOES, THE ONE GOODS and ME. my copywriter PETER will join the event too. i think it will be a relaxed evening with good talks, drinks and typical “MAENNERABEND” food. more to post the next days. the EAT DUST STUFF for today came on time with a special personal deliviery some days ago; check the video below. vid | BREMERICH JEANS || pics | LTG
a friend of mine send me the pics of this wonderful RWS boot. and the best is, that you can get it actually via eBay for your lady! it is a EU size 37 – check the tag in the pic below. this boot is absolutely rare and you can’t get it anymore, anywhere. the RWS leather is combined with waxed canvas – what a nice combination. we hope that this boot will go to a girl or a lady who knows and loves the special feature of this boot – this is definitely a life time gear piece! pics | HS
2 weeks ago i picked up my new brown BOWLER hat @ SCHMITTHUT. and sorry to say so, but it is true: STETSON, BRIXTON, BORSALINO and all the others, you do a very good job but there is no hat better than one made by hand especially for your own head. it is the same with a made-to-measure suit. SUSANNE made again such a great job and the hat fits more than perfect. it is the third hat she made for me and i love’em all. the next bowler is in progress: made of straw for summer. pics | Susanne Schmitt, LTG
