Thorogood Work American Heritage Moc Toe – after 1 year:

After I saw the very comprehensive article from Thomas – Denimhunters about the Thorogood Union made American work boots I decided to take some images of this boots I use now for 1 year at work. Thorogood / Weinbrenner boots are widely unknown in Europe and for a retail price of about 280 Euros hardly used/abused on work.

They have performed very well during this time. Getting hit by raisin and paint they get cleaned with aceton or sandpaper on a regular basis. Probably the resoling will be the first reason for a “repair” so no complaint by me and a real recommendation if you get them for a good price from the USA.

Here images of the boots after 3 month or when they were new. 

Quote of the Day – Woody Allen

Woody-Allen-by alex de brabant

A great quote by Woody Allen to start the day…

“In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people’s home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm!”

Hiking – Schröcken, Biberacherhütte:
After a feast with friends on some excellent roasted ducks at Gasthof Traube plus dessert it was a must to vaporize the calories the other day. One hour from home, after Schoppernauwe went straight to the Biberacher Hütte and continued the path in a superb mountain panorama to SchröckenUnfortunately no cake since off season has already started. The weather was outstanding, no autumn at all.

Can someone identify the jawbone i found? Teeth are sharp as it is from a carnivore but no fangs?

No they will not replace the original Amor Lux buttons on my caban jacket. I had to buy them, but haven´t found a real use for it. Will come, will come. Accompanied are the buttons with a Long John anchor button, this will stay. Drop me a mail (check “about me” for the my email) if you interested in the cheap source for these buttons.

Mountain panorama this morning:
What a great panorama view on my way cycling to work.  The water in front is the lake of constance (Bodensee), behind the newly snow covered alps and the big one is the Säntis. I better hurry up to make some more hiking trips this autumn or snow shoes are the other option.
