when i went to the post office yesterday i did a short turn to VOLLS, checking some new stuff KLAUS got the last days. i was really excited about the new SPIEWAK GOLDEN FLEECE jackets. especially the WAXED DECK JACKETS i like a lot. these DECK JACKETS were some of the most favorite jackets for the US FORCES in the 1940s. SPIEWAK was the official manufacturer of the us navy and air force and so the first maker of the nowadays famous and classic deck jackets. they are available in classic olive and navy blue with a shearling collar. both are made of waxed cotton. the camouflage jacket is an absolute damn f***ing must-have item. it is really special but so nice. i am sorry that i don’t have any more informations about it – i was flashed that i forgot to ask KLAUS about some facts. check volls.de, i think the jacket will be soon online in KLAUS’ shop – the deck jackets are online right now. the down filled AVIATION SNORKEL PARKAS are a contemporary interpretation of the famous and classic N3-B PARKAs from the 1950s. these are nice too but mainly useful with their TEFLON coated, wind and water resistant outer fabrics and a lot of other practically features and details. And especially the price is unbeatable for such a jacket. check the stuff @ volls.de for more information. pics | LTG
just surfing around i found these nice lookbook shots by swedish CALIROOTS shop. well done! and i must tell you, my waxed GOLDEN FLEECE SPIEWAK N3B SNORKEL PARKA is one of my absolute winter favorites: made in the USA, really authentic, practicable, warm and good rugged looking – at least for a good price. i wonder why SPIEWAK will be disposed so rare in germany. pics | CALIROOTS
it is still snowing and very cold in middle germany near frankfurt/main. my favorite parka
is still in revision but my buddy KAMI from B74 gave me another LIFE TIME GEAR piece:
a SPIEWAK N3A PARKA from the golden fleece series. great stuff: lightweight and comfortable
but very warm. it works great with the quilted POST OVERALLs vest. VOLLS got a lot of
POST O’ stuff two weeks ago. is there another shop in germany who sells this great stuff
from NYC? i don’t think so. but the best for deep snow walking are my WHITE’S HATHORN
SMOKEJUMPER with their heavy vibram trekking sole – these boots are what i call
LIFE TIME GEAR!
