damn, so much work here the last days. sorry for the blog post delay, but it’s even better: it’s more than 4 weeks ago i picked up these 2 great motive shirts made by BRACK CUSTOM GRAPHICS @ vollls.de. i didn’t have the time to take off the price tags. okay, i decided to do a blog post before i will remove the tags … so it happened this evening – finally. you must know, i’m not really a friend of motive shirts, but there are some exceptions like the one – for sure not all prints! – from f.ex. JOHNSON MOTORS, FAT BOY CLOTHING, CXXVI CLOTHING CO or THE REAL McCOYS. when i saw these special drag race retro shirts for the first time at a facebook post done by my buddy KLAUS VOLL, i knew i must get these as a huge us car and custom culture aficionado. the shirts are made by HARRY BRACK, a graphic designer „who grew up in the 1970s surrounded by Hanna Barbera, Hot Wheels and monsters. Influenced by artists such as Robert Williams, Jim Phillips, Jim Flora and others, his greatest inspiration today comes from the subculture, particularly the car and motorcycle clubs, garages and the racing festival he is organizing. He is specialized in illustration and silk screen printing. Since 1993 he’s creating custom designs for rock bands, clothing brands and for the hot rod and motorcycle culture. In 2009 he opened the Harry Damson Speed Shop in Berlin together with his buddy FRANK DAMSON as a hotspot for designers and enthusiasts of the classic car and motorcycle culture. HARRY DAMSON started as an outlet for his t-shirt brand BRACK KUSTOM GRAPHICS and fellow artists who create fine art, clothings and crafts.” the art work and the contents of this are really great. the blue shirt shows the famous 1965s MELROSE MISSILE, PLYMOUTH and the natural white one DON COOK’S DAMN YANKEE CUDA who was driven by PAT FOSTER. beside, the quality of the shirts is amazing … available @ volls.de, not online but just give KLAUS an email or a call. pics | LTG


that’s what social media is good for: i met ROY VAN CREIJ at facebook. and some day i saw these handmade crocheted bow ties that he posted. for me as a bow tie lover an absolute must-have. yesterday i got a letter from the netherlands with these two really nice looking and well done pieces for a nice price. it is easy to fit the ties with the two buttons in the back. i think the orange one has to be ordered too! isn’t that a wonderful gift for christmas? beside the bow ties ROY offers different sorts of bracelets at the MONSIEUR BOJANGLES etsy store. pics | LTG


great stuff – i think to remember a blogpost where i rad that
FREEWHEELERS is a company from people who worked for
THE REAL McCOY. it is a bit confusing because they call
themselve BOOTLEGGERS REUNION, too. anyway … they
do great clothing from the turn of the 19th century to the early
40s. the next days i will show some amazing pieces starting
today with two work pants.
