Second day @ B74 ORDERSHOW. Not such a smooth start as yesterday because of f***ing Frankfurt city traffic – a lot of road works: too much. Orange Beast brought me in under 15 Minutes from DA to FFM, but then it took me about an hour from the first FFM road sign to B74. Breathing … calm down … and then the sun went up, blue sky, just some cool clouds, the banking towers, the B74 sign, beloved SPIDERMAN: what a view, when you reach the parking lot of B74! This view compensated all trouble before. After the first espresso I started my daily tour and met a really good friend: Oli Breitwieser from RIDERS ROOM in Hamburg, Germany. It was 2 years ago we met the last time – damn. And it was an absolute pleasure to meet Sven Eden, the owner of RIDERS ROOM. Seen so often @ social media but today for the first time live – great! Some impressions from today. Enjoy – I did! For sure!! See you tomorrow! pics | LTG
This morning B74 ORDERSHOW started. For me a smooth start cruisin’ 30 kilometers with the Orange Beast straight to my parking lot directly in front of B74 – thx for this comfort, KAMI – this is f***in great! While getting my equipment ready it was really busy at the stalls around me … here just some impressions. There was such a great mood and really good vibes there @ B74 today … see you tomorrow … pics | LTG
The next days I will be @ the B74 ORDERSHOW in Frankfurt/Main, Germany, to stay in contact with good friends, meet people and check all this great new stuff from the labels which will be presented. Even today while the set-up was done I find some really nice and interesting stuff. The whole day it was really busy around B74. The empty and clean area got filled hour by hour – exciting. So Kami owner and founder of B74 told me: “We are ready to rumble!” I am happy to be part of this ORDERSHOW the next 4 days. pics | LTG
on monday i joined the ordershow s14 @ B-74, FRANKFURT/MAIN, GERMANY. it was nice to check some new stuff and meet a lot of friends and people i never saw before. as every visit at this special ordershow it was amazing and it’s quite simple because you must not rase one label: all the distributors show great stuff. so here just some impressions. pics | LTG
not only 2 more for my cap and hat collection: these 2 TOPO DESIGNS caps. they are special because of their classic look and because of made in the USA. most caps you get today come from anywhere … f*** … i owned these last december when UWE E. MAIER c/o AMTRAQ did a sample sale @ b-74. the red one i nearly wear every day since i bought it. great fit, cool looking. you know that TOPO sponsors KIAM, son of KAMI owner of RED WING STORE FRANKFURT and B-74? one of our best BMX artists in germany. check this out: KIAM pics | LTG | pics KIAM UWE E. MAIER or KAMI himself …
this is what i call a successful collaboration. this TOPO DESIGNS MOUNTAIN BRIEFCASE looks wonderful in that special color combination and features certainly all the practical benefits you know from TOPO DESIGNS or expect from a good bag with this size: Dimensions: 11″h x 16″w x 4.5″d, Volume: 792 cu. in./12.9 L. for details please check the doane paper® site.
between all the heavy work these days i took the time to visit good friends and checked up some new stuff at wonderful arranged new showroom B-74 SHOWROOM FOR SELECTED BRANDS in frankfurt/main, germany, yesterday evening. f***! so great stuff. AMTRAQ (Tellason, Tanner Goods, DEHEN1920, TOPO Designs, Rising Sun, REDS, Golden Bear Sports wear, Croots England, L.I. Sounders, FEINSCHMUCK, Kay Heldsdörfer, Rancourt & Co), Levis Vintage Clothing, Levis Made and Crafted, Otter Wax, Merz b. Schwanen, Gitta Plotniki, Scarti Lab and Blue Blanket show their stuff for ordering in a really great atmosphere. KAMI’s B-74 is the right location for these brands and i think this won’t be the last time. it is difficult to tell you about my favorites. but really impressing were: RISING SUN, SCARTI LAB, Merz b. Schwanen, Blue Blanket and Golden Bear. the awesome FEINSCHMUCK stuff i knew and a lot of UWE E. MAIER’s AMTRAQ stuff too. most surprising was OTTER WAX. KAMI told me a lot about the different stuff they offer. from saddle soap to fragrances and beard oil. i was really impressed and i know that the beard oil and the forest smelling fragrance will find their way to my cupboard – damn good smelling! exciting was the new LVC collection: very-cowboy-look-a-like. but not traditional old school but for the 70s and 80s urban cowboy. difficult, but with some nice pieces. KAMI, Uwe, Dirk c/o MBS, Stefan, Andy … arranged a well tasting barbecue with a lot of cold drinks and so i’ve had a short but really smooth evening over the roofs of frankfurt. pics | LTG
