It’s this time to hunt for special present ideas … almost for people who own everything. So what’s about the NASA Original Blanket found @ COOL MATERIAL? I love it! Most people dream some day of going to space. Mission impossible. So take a little NASA home! Rumpl’s NASA edition of the Original Puffy Blanket and Stuff Sack was created in honour of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 13 mission. This spacy blanket combines modern comfort with space age technology: Nylon shell and 100% post-consumer recycled polyester insulation. Heat-reflective 20D nylon shell. DWR finish for stain and water resistance. Cape Clip for hands-free use. NASA space suit inspired Tyvek product label. Water-resistant NASA stuff sack included. And if this will not be enough to live your dreams what’s about some Astronaut Ice Cream? Astronaut ice cream is an out of this world treat. Originally developed for space travel, this creamy-sweet freeze-dried astronaut food will give a taste of outer space right here on Earth. Ready-to-eat, yet shelf stable for up to 3 years, it’s made out of 100% real ice cream yet built to last the test of time.

When I stumbled about this news and some pics in an automotive blog I thought “Damn, what an amazing idea”. The Electric Ford Bronco was developed and is produced by Zero Labs, Cal. USA. They are “… a passionate team of entrepreneurs, technology investors, advertising and media experts, financial managers, advanced race vehicle engineers, electric vehicle prototype manufactures, composite engineers, aerospace fabricators, premium classic car manufacturers, high net worth support and global industrial designers driven by a single purpose.” Zero Labs’ premium classic electric vehicles “are restored and handcrafted to show car quality seamlessly powered by a covert all-electric drive system. They are designed to be low maintenance, environment-friendly at superior luxury and refinement. Their goal is to offer everything you love, minus everything you hate. To be enjoyed now and well into the future.” Only 150 Broncos of this first edition premium electric vehicles are available for reservation. It is expected that the price can be more than $ 300.000, but maybe you know the “ICON” Bronco (see LTG Post from 2011) which is $ 250.000 up. Check the list of specifications and available options of the ZeroLab Bronco – leaves nothing to desired and using just the best materials. Great Idea.

You all know that I am addicted to TELLASON. And I am so happy and satisfied with my beloved pairs of Gustave styles in different ounces, but, damn, this piece of denim Uwe E. Maier c/o Amtraq Distribution gave me last week is the best. I love this “Ladbroke Grove”, named after a quarter of London where The Clash frontman Joe Strummer grew up, slim tapered fit in 18oz pink selvedge denim from the mill Collect Kojima in Japan from the first wear on. What a perfect fit with this 18oz.! It is a limited edition made for the 10th anniversary of Tellason (TEN), made in San Francisco, Cal., USA. So special, because only 150 pieces were produced and just 115 pieces were shipped to Europe. And me I am a lucky one … because I got one! Be fast to get one of the 114 that are left … Get your pair at VMC Originals, Zürich, or ask Amtraq Distr. for more stockists ›› firstname.lastname@example.org. This is not just another piece of Life Time Gear … no, it is a really special piece of Life Time Gear!!!

Two weeks ago Red Wing Heritage released the new Wacouta Collection which includes 2 Boots, 2 backpacks and 4 pouches. Following in the tradition of the Wabasha, a widely-celebrated moccasin-style Red Wing boot from the mid 2000s, the Wacouta is an outdoor leisure-inspired boot. Five miles south of Red Wing, Minnesota, along the banks of the Mississippi River, Wacouta Township is the site of a cabin that has been in the Red Wing family for three generations.
The Wacouta Boot is a casual lifestyle boot that blends premium Red Wing leather with waxed canvas from the longstanding American manufacturer, Fairfield Textiles. The mixed materials combine to create a supremely comfortable moccasin-inspired shoe. Built on a Honeywheat outsole with stitch-down construction the Wacouta’s lightweight flexibility makes for miles of comfort.
The Backpacks are inspired by classic packs, with construction and material updates that provide modernized comfort and lasting durability. Red Wing leather waxed canvas and solid brass buckles and rivets create a backpack that’s visually striking and supremely functional. Designed to match Wacouta footwear styles the Wacouta Backpack is distinguished in its details. Waxed canvas and Oil-Tanned leather deliver water resistance and durability while reinforced stitching and heavyweight leather straps ensure each pack is up for the rigors of everyday hauling.
The Wacouta Gear Pouches blend striking form with everyday functionality. Red Wing leather and American-made waxed canvas and hardware make for years of reliable, utilitarian use. Available in 2 sizes each style.

If I would have the right place to park, I mean enough space, and if I would have some money to play with, this truck would be mine! This Jeep Wagoneer is such a beauty and it would be the perfect car for me and my dog “Toni”. The price is nice too and the condition seems to be perfect. It was built in 1979 and the speedometer just shows nearly 26.000 kilometers. V8, automatic, 4-wheel-drive, a lot of chrome and such nice colors in and outside with a smart wood application – classic! The car is located in Bonn, Germany, and it is sold by Alltagsklassiker. So check the site for more information.

Hi guys, I am back! After 6 months of working so much on different projects I will continue LIFE TIME GEAR blog. I am so sorry, that LTG blog was “sleeping” and I was really surprised, that a lot of people asked and wrote me, if LTG is dead and that I should keep going on the blog – I will do! Okay, one of these projects was the creative direction of the “TEN” magazine I did for TELLASON and AMTRAQ DISTRIBUTION because of the 10th Anniversary of TELLASON. It was a great pleasure to do this for Pete, Tony and Uwe –you must know, since 2012 I didn’t wear another jean than my two pairs Tellason Gustave. We have have had an exciting time with a lot of work and best teamwork with people around the world. Last week the magazine was launched at the “TEN” anniversary party during Selvedge Run 2019. Here just some pages to look at.

Because of the Pecos Post today @redwingfrankfurt on Instagram and Facebook I decided to do a more detailed post at LTG Blog. So you have some views how nice this great boot ages. The iconic Red Wing “PECOS” boot style has a long history. In 1930 this “pull on” boot was introduced especially at this time for ranchers, cowboys and drilling roughnecks. The Pecos features till today a simple but at the same time so nice and timeless design, has a very comfortable fit and the more it get rugged the better it looks – as you see in the pics below. This boot is still made the same way as in these early days with quality leathers in our factory in Red Wing. And the time when a Pecos was worn just for working is long ago. It is the perfect boot for the urban prairie, for biker or just to stroll around. At the end of the last year it was launched a very special Pecos: this limited #4327 Red Wing x Eat Dust Pecos in this wonderful Oro russet Abilene roughout leather. The nicest Pecos ever I think! The Pecos is available at Red Wing Shoe Store Frankfurt online and in-store. AND it is strictly limited! pics | LTG + Jelle Keppens for Red Wing Heritage
