Natural Indigo Scarfs by Indigo People

Probably the first time I came saw the first natural indigo dyed scarf was at “The Low Show” in Amsterdam about half a year ago. Since then I regretted to not have been able to obtain one. By luck I found Kiat from Indigopeople and his natural indigo dyed scarfs. I contacted him and he was kind enough to sent me the Otobe and the Abira scarf be-cause i was not really sure which one I like more. Honestly I still don´t know. Both are really nice masterpieces with a “basic” traditional ikat pattern made by a master artisan. While the Otobe is a much bigger an thicker scarf, the Abira is of a thinner material. So actually both have a bit of their “advantages” regarding the style you plan to wear them or the season. I will probably have a bit of a hard time to decide which one will be my favorite one. Thanks Kiat for the great and quick service and I´m really looking forward how the scarf will look like, after it´s worn for a while to develop it´s unique look.

Ceccarelli waxed cotton and down coat style 7005

One of my favorite highlights 2014 and I finally closed one gap in my wardrobe. The Ceccarelli waxed cotton and down coat with a hood called Style 7005.  My pea coat by Armor Lux was never warm enough when it´s really cold. A Barbor Jacket can be worn with a thick woolen Pullover but I rarely do this. Most down jackets are made from some kind of Nylon, close to a fire or a cigarette and you got a hole in it – nevertheless you look like a Micheline figure.

So when I saw this Jacket at the Amtraq Distribution PortfolioI knew I have to have it. It is made of high class thick waxed cotton, goose down (90/10) YKK heavy duty brass zippers and superb constructed and crafted and with well thought of details. See the leather reenforced buttons or the pull cord with the leather stopper and particularly the “cosy” lined pockets and cuffs.

It´s not a jacket its a coat about 3/4 so its even good to wear when cycling. No kidneys or back is exposed and gets cold. So from my side a great brand which definitely should get your attention  and Amtraq Distributed Stockists are already being delivered with Manifattura Ceccarelli goods.

A last comment to this jackets and goods produced by M.C.
They might look familiar to you be-cause M.C, designed and produced for Filson Europe for more than 10 years and is also producing for Pendelton.

 

 

Tellason Sheffield Raw Denim 16.5 oz

Exactly 2 years ago I got my first Tellason Jean the Ankara in 14.75 oz, and now there is a time for a change. Or at least to start to break in a new pair of Jeans. Thanks to Amtraq and Tellason for this great new pair. The Ankara needs some patching in the crouch area which probably was caused by cycling quite a lot. Apart from that there is a lot of life in them, but quite sad to realize some time they will just fall apart ( and I do not will use them as a underwear ;-).

The reason I choose the Sheffield in favor to the Ankara was just to try a slightly different cut. The Sheffield is quite the same pattern as the Ankara with enough space for having a comfortable fit for guys with bigger legs and a bit more tampered to the end. The 16.5 oz fabric woven by White Oak Cone Mills Denim for Tellason fells like a tank but I might have forgotten how the 14.75 oz felt at the beginning. I´m really looking forward to see the development of this pair after the first wash – which won´t take too long since muddy dogs or myself are quite good in not avoiding dirt to well.

Stählemühle open day 2014

Luckily we made our reservation for this great event way in advance. Only every two years you have the chance to visit this great place of Spirits. Just the images tell enough to say it was a perfect event with superb presentation of the Stählemühle by Christoph Keller in Eigeltingen-Münchhöf and his team.

A glimpse into the vintage crypt of Red Wing Frankfurt

Yesterday I had the chance to get a glimpse into the vintage crypt of the oldest Red Wing store in Europe. Kami Hashemi the owner took the time at the Munson Ranger 8012 release party to guide me trough his personal Red Wing Collection. Some of the oldest Charles Beckmans, Pecos, Moc-Toes and Frankfurter are lined up there. Another personal highlight was to have a look of a Red Wing Catalogue dated back to 1949. The new Munson Ranger is amazing I can tell, but for more on that head over to Life Time Gear he will post soon.

Impressions Bread & Butter Summer 2014

I attended with Feinschmuck the Bread & Butter Summer 2014 and was part of the Amtraq Dist. stand in the Fire Department area. A great event with so many good brands. Unfortunately I did not have the time to wander around and take more images. Here just a quick glimpse into some of the brands I was close to or really caught my eye.
