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.

Get your Wallet or Keys hooked by Feinschmuck

Here some preview images from some solid bronze items by Feinschmuck. Each single piece is unique by the traditional wax cast process. Skillful patinated and by so already unique in its look. Use the hooks to safely attach your wallet, keys or knife with a leash or chain to your jean. Right now they are available with cherry blossoms and surfaces from ray and ostrich.

Ha! I totally forgot to mention the Indian Head belt buckle which will also be available soon after the Bread & Butter fair January 2014 in Feinschmuck supplied shops.

Superior Labor Bread & Butter Summer 2013

Hardly you see a brand who manages to combine canvas, leather and solid brass hardware so well together – for sure a Japanese Brand. I hope they will be at the Bread & Butter January 2014 for a closer look. Thanks to Takao for pointing me to Superior Labor Website.

LVC Levi´s Vintage Clothing & Bing Crosby Denim Tuxedo

As with exceptional things, they get remarkable when they are connected by a good story they can tell. Thanks to Thomas for guiding me around a bit through the denim world @ the Bread & Butter Summer 2013. Before his tour I was just fascinated by LVC new collection and especially the yellow Western Shirt made of silk and so nicely done embroidery. But via Thomas I understood the story of the Bing Crosby Denim Tuxedo made by Levi´s. A limited edition of this Tuxedo will be produced by Levi´s,  an Investment and for sure it gets a well hunted collectors item.

Here the short story about this Tuxedo and Bing Crosby´s connection to it.
After he was told to be not dressed appropriate in his Levi´s Jeans by a Canadian Hotel Clerk and was nearly rejected to get a hotel room for the night, Bing told the story Levi´s and they went into action and crafted him a Denim Tuxedo. The President of the American Hotel Association even put a Label inside and granted him – Bing Crosby entrance to all Hotels in America in this Tuxedo.

Natic Marine – Marine Uniform by Tadanori Domyo

You have to see and to feel the collection of Natic Marine designed by Tadanori Domyo. So rich in details and crafted so well. I had the chance to take some detail images of his naval/maritime influenced designs. Probably the most fascinating pieces was an oxford style shirt with southern crosses, mermaids and anchors woven into the fabric. But as with most of the Japanese Brands it is so hard to find them over here in Europe, but I really hope that their performance in Berlin @ the Bread & Butter June 2013 has payed of and we will see their garments being distributed here as well.

EDIT!
Takao Tsubouchi from Jayproject just contacted me, he is distributing Natic and other Japanese premiums brands and is located in Milano (Italy), so he is your contact over here.

Pike Brothers – Roamer Shirt mohawk check

I´ve met Fabian from Pike Brothers at the Bread&Butter two weeks ago and my intentions was to tell him how I honor his/their products which are authentic, durable and affordable. His statement was more or less that his roots are within the classic hot rod scene for which he developed cloth where “form follows function” those guys wear his garments at work and are happy they are worth the price by outlasting cheaper stuff they bought before by far.

And another thing was to check their Elephant skin fabric which they use now in trousers, vests and jackets but somehow I became hooked by the texture of their new
1937 Pike Brothers Roamer mohawk check Shirt. 

If would not have seen that shirt at their stand I would have guessed it has Japanese roots. (see it as a compliment). What a great fabric, soft, nice in detail and breathable. For sure perfect at temperatures to wear which we have right now (+30 Celsius).
