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.

Hawleywood’s Barbershop


Hawleywood’s Barbershop:
I guess if we had a Barbershop like this one, I would start growing my hair again. But most Barbers are like taxi drivers on speed, who ruin your Saturday morning by talking bullshit and asking questions which has been asked by them before. I rather prefer a max. of 3 mm hair and safe the money – be-cause.

Wait! I guess there is a barber around. Eric from Life Time Gear has a friend Olli Wegerich, I guess he would be the guy around Darmstadt to get a haircut.

As promised I took some images of the smaller or lighter Swiss army salt and pepper backpack from 1963 made by A. Mosimann. As you can see it lacks the stronger and reinforced carrying system and the closing flap with the leather buckles. This makes it about 2 kg lighter and a lot slimmer when not filled. The materials have the same strength and the reinforcements of the stitches are pretty much the same. Absolute superb craftsmanship I have to say, not one single weakness I could find on the construction of the backpack. All buckles or leather parts have got reinforcements on the other side of the canvas. The canvas itself is very strong but does not tend to break. I guess if you treat it with some wax it will be waterproof like a barbour jacket.

Speaking of the comfort I have to admit the bigger and heavier rucksack feels a bit more comfortable esp. when you plan to carry a lot of weight. But at the same also quite heavy and bulky even when empty. The closing method of the lighter one is quite strange at the beginning but quick to access and if you fold it it should be keep most rain away. So I would say a quite clever design. So if you need a stylish vintage backpack with rugged leather I would say there is no better one on this planet for around 30 Euro / 40 USD. Grab one as long as they are available.

For an earlier review of the bigger and heavier backpack have a look here:

Yesterday we were on an antique, classic, retro, vintage or heritage (whatever) ski team race cup in Fischen close to Oberstdorf in the Allgäu region. Each team consisted out of 4 athletes. A nice atmosphere, a lot of fun and great cloth and equipment. They raced down in a group of 4 and the time was stopped when all of them reached the finish line. Just close to the start the competitors had a stop to have an energy drink – Schnaps.  With only wooden skis some sportsman and sportswoman showed great skills. It was a relaxing event with kids, families, clubs and workmates competing against each other in a funny way. We definitely will have a look again next year.

This week I saw an auction with a fixed price about this boots and it was instantly sold, luckily the seller had another one and I was quicker this time.

The seller got this boots right out of an barn from a friend in Sweden.

Amazing craftsmanship and I guess after some wear and break in he will look awesome. The only thing which troubles me is the leather sole and the iron  parts on it. See the image of the heel, it has a iron rim like a horseshoe. I think about putting a rubber sole onto them, what do you think?

I managed to get some more of this boots, a model from 1943 a bit different design,  leather and I modified it now with a rubber sole.

The only reference I could find about a similar boot is:
Swedish army boot from 1943 on Fedora Lounge. 

If you are interested in this boot, check this seller on ebay.
