Ed-Meier store Munich:
When Uwe from Amtraq told me the Topo Design stuff arrived at the Ed-Meier store and fits just perfectly in the tasteful shop, I had to have a look. Ed-Meier is know for their handmade goodyear welt shoes since 1596 but you will find more than that in the flagship store. A great mix of traditional products and accessoires in classic colors and patterns but enriched by lively and newer ones as well.

Particularly the fine selection of pocket knifes I did not expect or the skull & bones suspenders. They have their “Gamsbar” close by which I somehow missed to see. But for sure this shop will be on the agenda for future visits in Munich.

Kaweco Sport fountain pen:
Thanks to Thomas Dirk from Merz b. Schwanen who brought my attention to this great pen, while having lunch together at the Frontküche. Later that day, I found the Kaweco Sport fountain pen @ Manufactum in Munich. Kaweco produces these pens for Manufactum based on the design from 1935. With only 10,5 cm long, a good addition to your EDC. For a very detailed review for this pen check this site.

Red Wing leather work gloves:
I´ve been yesterday for a quick visit to Munich and as most of the time visited Burghard Pflug´s Gasoline Alley. Hard to leave his shop without finding something. This time I got a pair of Red Wing leather work gloves. With the right jacket or trousers a man hardly needs gloves but sometimes I wished I had one. So they had to be constructed well and this pair fitted my requirements as I can say now.
– Thick cowhide leather
– Reinforced patch on palm and thumb
– A leather which will develop nicely by it´s use in time

munich coat of arms belt – Münchner Stadtwappen Gürtel

Münchner Stadtwappen Gürtel - city arms munich belt1 Münchner Stadtwappen Gürtel - city arms munich belt münchner kindl Münchner Stadtwappen Gürtel - city arms munich belt münchner kindlMünchner Wappen Gürtel – Munich coat of  arms belt – Münchner Kindl:
Yesterday Manfred from Feinschmuck gave me this belt buckle made after a 13th. century coat of arms (Stadtwappen / Stadtsiegel) from the city of Munich. 

Can someone make out the full text on the buckle and figure out the meaning?

Below something from Wikipedia the full story here: Münchner Kindl.

The coat of arms of Munich (Münchner Wappen) depicts a young monk dressed in black holding a red book. It has existed in a similar form since the 13th century, though at certain points in its history it has not depicted the central figure of the monk at all. As the German name for Munich, i.e. München, means of Monks, the monk in this case is a self-explanatory symbol who represents the city of Munich. Appearing on a document of May 28, 1239, the oldest seal of Munich has a picture of a monk wearing an open hood. While all seal impressions show the monk with the book in one hand and three outstretched fingers in the other, the monk has varied slightly, appearing in profile, then later full-faced and bare-headed. By the 19th century the figure was portrayed as youthful and became known as the Münchner Kindl or Munich Child. The coat of arms in its current form was created in 1957 and is still an important symbol of the Bavarian state capital.

Ventilator vintage shop in Dornbirn Austria:
The Altwarenhandel Ventilator shop for vintage stuff is one of my favorite shops. A great selection of stuff from all kinds of interests, nicely presented. Top quality with reasonable prices. So if you are in Austria, Vorarlberg region have a stop here in Dornbirn.

Gasoline Alley – München

Gasoline Alley München / Munich a true shop for dudes by Burghardt Pflug. A must see if you are in Munich. The few photos I shot are only a glimpse of the treasures he has hoarded in his shop. And they are even for sale. The collection of old and new leather jackets and red wings are in the back of the shop and are not shown here.
