Saint James + Twothirds naval shirt:
Walked by this great shirt at the Bread&Butter Summer 2013. Did you know that striped shirts were so popular by sailors be-cause they tend to be easier to be spotted when the went overboard + that classic marine striped shirts got 13 stripes. The shirt can be ordered for 100 Euro here. Enjoy to watch the Movie “UNE HISTOIRE D’EAU — MADE IN FRANCE” or the History of the sea/water.
pure blue japan & Syoaiya:
Im far from being a denim expert, but the denim i saw at the stand of pure blue japan & Syoaiya was the most extraordinary in color, texture and look for me. Not much to say about it, i hope the macro shoots speak for himself. The uneven weaving caused by old looms and the rich indigo color will result in a great development which you see on the worn samples at the end of this post.
Thanks to the Bread&Butter to bring companies like this to Berlin.
Fein und Ripp – Pike Brothers Party – Bread & Butter 2013:
At the Fire Dept. I had the chance to have a talk with Fabian from Pike Brothers and he invited me to Fein und Ripp at the party. Traditional Bavarian food and beer was served there by Fabian and it was the place to go at the wednesday after the Bread & Butter fair.
Fein und Ripp can be described as a well stocked Pike Brothers homebase. But as you can see it´s another unique shop far away from being normal which is surely worth a visit. The interieur is carefully selected and seems natural in there. Family run by father and his two sons with a great dedication to quality and deadstock items. Check their news section for keeping updated about their latest finds.
The Heritage Post – Feinschmuck:
One of the most anticipated things was to check the new issue of The Heritage Post as we knew some Feinschmuck products will be covered in an article. But we did not know how many items or pages. Needless to say we were more than happy to see that actually 3 full pages with lots of my images made it in the magazine. Thanks a lot to Uwe van Afferden, and Ronny Schröder and especially for the really well written article to Stefanie Kobayashi.
On the last two images you see Uwe having fun with our latest creation the ancient Roman dices.
Thanks to do you read me?! – Berlin for providing me with the new Inventory Magazine. I will not write too much about the content – buy it. But they´ve got a great article about the “mother of denim” the Cone Mills Denim Factory in it. ( (c) Images by Farhad Samari)
