It’s been a while ago when I did my last post … damn … more than one year … There are a lot of reasons for this – too many to list. From today on I will try to publish regularly again @ LIFE TIME GEAR.
TSPTR launched its “SPACE RACE 1969” collection just a few days ago. So nice t-shirts and sweater with Snoopy prints dedicated to these days in the spring of 1969. Here some historic facts which made the new special collection happen. TSPTR ›› “Just before the first man landed on the moon, Charlie Brown and Snoopy soared through space with NASA’s Apollo 10 mission in May 1969. It is difficult to imagine the excitement that the race for the moon invoked fifty years ago. As the decade of the 1960s was coming to a close, America and the rest of the world waited with great anticipation to see if NASA could achieve President John F. Kennedy’s challenge, put forth in May 1961, of putting a man on the moon by the end of the decade. Consequently, it was a very great honor, indeed, when the crew of Apollo 10 chose to nickname their command and lunar modules Charlie Brown and Snoopy, respectively. The flight of Apollo 10 in May 1969 was the “dress rehearsal” for the lunar landing that was scheduled for July 1969. Astronauts Thomas Stafford and Eugene Cernan piloted “Snoopy” within 50,000 feet of the lunar surface as they scouted the landing area for Apollo 11while John Young orbited the moon in the command module “Charlie Brown.” Charles Schulz’s involvement with NASA began a year earlier than the 1969 flight of Apollo 10 when he was approached by NASA with a request to use Snoopy as their safety mascot. The Silver Snoopy Award program was instituted to improve the safety record of NASA employees and contractors. It proved to be a huge success with the astronauts and the employees. The Silver Snoopy pin is a much-coveted award. Snoopy has been on the job for 50 plus years and continues to this day in his role as NASA’s safety mascot.” The stuff is available @ the TSPTR Webstore. Check it, because the stuff shown at LTG Blog is just a small selection. For me as a great Snoopy fan – I own a Snoopy in real 😉 – a must have: the “First Beagle On the Moon! Flight Safe!” t-shirt and sweater.
For sure one of my absolute favorites from my cap collection: the TSPTR x EBBETS POPEYE BALLCAP. It mus be one of my favs because of being a great POPEYE fan since a child and EBBETS FIELD FLANNELS are my most beloved caps – what a perfect collaboration! And so special, so limited. As all EBBETS Caps this one is for sure made in the USA. It is an authentic 1960’s ball cap reproduction built of 14oz indigo dyed denim, featuring a high quality embroidered POPEYE badge, a horse hair buckram crown, satin taping, a cotton sweatband and an adjustable leather strap. Available exclusive @ TSPTR. This site is a trap because you’ll find so much more nice great stuff. As I remember I got my stuff really fast last spring – so maybe you can get on of the best caps ever right in time before Xmas. pics | LTG
As a constant reader of LIFE TIME GEAR blog you must know that I am a great fan of EBBETS FIELD FLANNELS caps. I own a lot of because I love this heritage, classic and authentic look. Beside, the fit is perfect. When I order a 7 1/4 it is a 7 1/4 – every cap has the same fit and believe me this isn’t the norm i f you compare to other labels. Some days ago I discovered the woolen CHARLIE BROWN baseball cap which is the result of a collaboration between 60s counterculture-inspired brand TSPTR – which stand for Truth, Symmetry, Pleasure, Taste, Recognition – and EBBETS FIELD FLANNELS. Certainly made in the USA of a grey melange wool with an adjustable leather tab and calf leather trim. “CHARLIE BROWN” is constructed with the same soft wool which is used for EBBETS’ vintage baseball uniforms – great, isn’t it? This is my first EBBETS which is not made to size and the fit is perfect too. I know it from the moment on I took it out of the parcel which came from CALIROOTS: this is a new Life Time Gear piece. pics | LTG
