Resole of my Red Wings 1908 by bespoke Shoemaker Werner Sibla

This saturday I finally could pickup my pair of Redwings 1908 after they have been masterly redone by bespoke shoemaker Werner Sibla.

I did an interview about Werner Sibla about a month ago be-cause I really liked his shoes and the way he incredibly resorted or redid some shoes for customers. We spend about 4 hours of talking and he was very open to share some of his skills and tools he uses. A couple of days later he agreed to have a look at my ruined Red Wings 1908. The sole was ripped off and overall the leather, the rim and the heel suffered quite a lot within the last 4 years.

I just told him that I wanted an extra layer of leather in the sole and the heel and left the rest of the job to him. It turned out superb. Just let someone who knows his job do his job. His main business is to make bespoke shoes and he also got a very good reputation for restoring premium shoes like Alden, John Lobb or Crocket and Jones just to name a view.

I guess he really liked to work with my boots and also liked the result.  So when I asked him if I may publish his name and website to friends and readers, he agreed to. Im really excited what further projects will be shown on his Instragram or on his recent job section on his website.

Seil Marschall – an overview part 1

Seil-Marschall sign in front of the shopSeil-Marschall shop housefrontSeil-Marschall Backpacks OverviewSeil Marschall Neckties and ShoesSeil Marschall Shoes and ShoecareSeil Marschall Hardware and ToolsSeil Marschall Ropes, Cords and StringsLast Saturday I had an appointment with Thomas Fressle owner of the Seil Marschall company in Ravensburg – Germany. A true gentleman who continues the company tradition in its 4th generation, which was founded 1896.

This is just an overview of the shop / warehouse and part 1 of several posts. The following ones will go more into details about their own products like the backpacks, shoes and jackets.

Apart from the Seil Marshall products which are crafted not to far from Ravensburg, you can find other items in the shop which complete the range of products very well. Shoes from Alden or boots from Red Wing, jeans from the Pike Bothers, and lots of other exclusive menswear brands.

Find below the statement from the Seil Marschall website, which really describes the company philosophy very well and it’s quality standards.

“We still make the quality worn by our grandfathers”

We are making the finest quality since 1896.

In the most companies the quality has changed into quantity. We are still a small company in the modern sense and haven’t changed to much.

Our quality is not possible to produce in big quantities.”Our best machines are still our hand”. We take the finest natural materials and accessories available and take us enough time to manufacture long lasting products. In all our goods we put in many time and functional details to protect you in the extremest conditions – “we still make the quality worn by our grandfathers”.

More than 100 years we are still a family business ( in the 4th generation).
