TOILET PAPER BY “GOLDEIMER” | THE COOLEST AND MOST SUSTAINABLE “KLOPAPIER” EVER

For sure this is not a Life Time Gear piece because of its short use, but it is made for thousands of people not just to have a better life but to survive! Entering the supermarket I saw this cool designed and named toilet paper: “GOLDEIMER” … the english meaning is “Golden Bucket”. Interesting. An illustrated tattooed sailor on the package of toilet paper with this message: “For small and big ones” … “Just sitting down and wipe away? As if! With GOLDEIMER toilet paper you support worldwide sanitarian projects and our vision is jacks for all”. More than a half of the world population has no access to a safe sanitarian support. This means the death of nearly a million people year by year. GOLDEIMER is a social project that gives all future assets to Viva con Agua and Welthungerhilfe. With every GOLDEIMER toilet paper you buy, you support all projects that give access to people worldwide to toilets, water and soap. The toilet paper is certified by German environmental seal “Blauer Engel” which means most power and water saving; for sure this special toilet paper is made of 100% recycled paper. And don’t worry: the sheet covering all the toilet paper rolls is made of 30%  chalk which reduces the CO2 emissions to 30% compared to conventional plastic packages. The sheet is 100% recyclable. And the best and really important: beside all the social benefits GOLDEIMER toilet paper is comfortable in use. Three-ply and tender to your rear;) Life Time Gear tested! And the design of Germany’s first social toilet paper is just perfect!

THE GREASER “MICK T-SHIRT” | THE SELVEDGE YARD x NICK THE TAILOR COLLABORATION

Yesterday I went to the customs to pick up my “Greaser Mick” collaboration t-shirt. Following TSY “THE SELVEDGE YARD” from the first days on I am interested in checking cool blogs, I was so happy to get this extraordinary t-shirt. What a cool motive for me as a great DISNEY and Rockabilly aficionado. The illustration was made by NICK THE TAILOR a Philadelphian artist and tattooist – very well done Nick! The shirt is high quality printed in Philadelphia on a 100% cotton American Apparel stuff made in the USA. Because of a good working networking I saw this great shirt the first time at DON SCHWEDEs Facebook site linked to his great blog “THE LAST DON” – thx. pics | LTG

MR. LIFE TIME GEAR HAS A NEW JOB? AS A BARBER?

yesterday evening i joined the football match of my 1. FC KAISERSLAUTERN vs FSV FRANKFURT. WE won 1:0 and went to second place of german BUNDESLIGA 2. funny, i was asked by two people if i would be the barber in the FCK movie the team released 2 months ago to present their new jerseys. you must know: FCK goes ROCKABILLY this season. this topic you’ll find in all the press and f.ex in the new team collection catalogue. this is one is not so bad – it could have been a bit more authentic but it’s okay. so overall not a bad idea and it is really great to hear the STRAY CATS and other favorite bands of mine before the match rockin’. this is really something new for german football stadiums. enjoy the video … me as a barber hahahahaha … pics & vid | 1. FC KAISERSLAUTERN

No, I am not a Barber!My Barber is OLLI, Olli The Barber.

RED WING SHOES AT WORK | CARPENTER CHRISTIAN WITH HIS RWS #8130

this week we got our roof-deck renewed. when our carpenter CHRISTIAN came in i noticed at once his rugged RED WING boots. i asked him if this is a #8137 and he told me that it is a #8130 with a rebuilt black sole. he always wears his RWS boots a couple of years before he use them for work. these are about 3 years at work. these boots are really nice broken in. as CHRISTIAN says there are no better boots for work than RED WING BOOTS. pics | LTG

BOOT OF THE DAY | #180 | VANS VAULT OG Sk8-Hi DONALD TRUE BLUE

okay, this is definitely not a boot but a wonderful sneaker for me as a great DISNEY fan. found this classic VANS VAULT SK8-HI @ TRÉS BIEN. the sneaker is a collaboration style with DISNEY and features all the things a SK8-HI stands for: “Front section and tongue in smooth suede with side sections in contrasting patterned canvas. Leather and textile lining. Contrasting laces. Suede back section. Leather details on the sides. Sits on a customized white waffle rubber sole …” wonderful. maybe they will do one day a FANTOMIAS SK8-HI – then i had to make a decision: buying or not 😉 pics | TRÉS BIEN (shoe), LTG
