Tellason Clampdown Denim Shirt

Somehow it seems that taking a new Tellason piece with me on vacation turns into a habit. While the images of the Tellason Ankara on the coast of Liguria at the end of Summer 2012 were somehow cheerful and sunny, the weather and the hills in Piedmont now were mostly nebulous (thats what the famous Nebbiolo (Barolo) grapes got their name from).

The weather fitted the planned use for the Tellason Clampdown 10.5 oz Denim shirt too well. While I would rate the Tellason Topper 7,5 oz Denim shirt as the perfect warm/all weather shirt, the Clampdown fills the gap when the temperature drops. Hardwearing denim, double and even triple seams, solid buttons and front pockets. As an upgrade to the topper shirt the clampdown got additional to the pen holder in the breast pocket an additional a knife holder. If you already own a Tellason Jean you might not having trouble to carry your knife in one of the spacious pockets but If you own a really nice knife – now you got the chance to show it.

Otter Wax(ed) the Rising Sun Outdoor Vest

Yesterday I decided to try some Otter Wax to treat my brand new Rising Sun Outdoor Vest in Raw Brown Duck Canvas. It took me about half an hour and 1/3 of this XL bar of Otter Wax. I strongly recommend to watch the Otter Wax Video on Vimeo for some hints. Working the wax into the fabric with your fingers is the way to do it right. There is the option to treat the fresh waxed fabric with a blow dryer for a deeper saturation and a more even distribution. The wax gets more fluid then, but I liked the contrast of some hard to reach areas (see the image 2) and also the not too perfect applied look.

At the beginning of the treatment the wax is a bit sticky but this has changed already within the last 10 hours. As mentioned in the Video by Otter Wax it is settling in for up to 3 days. I hope the development and difference between the two vests is clear. To describe the waxed one, I would say it looks a bit like some “well broken in greasy suede leather vest”. I´m sure this vest will develop a nice character within the next month – stay updated here.

Thanks to Amtraq Distribution and Otter Wax Distribution Europe for the samples.

Rising Sun Outdoor Vest Brown Duck Canvas

Today I received a sample from Amtraq, the Rising Sun Outdoor Vest in raw brown Duck Canvas. A sold crafted piece of garment which is well suited for your daily use. I especially like the two huge “Chest kill pockets with a curved opening” (as Rising Sun describes them). To show the size of these I used my Stanley as a reference. Nearly it fits in – not when worn,  if you wear the vest tight. but I guarantee your home office will for sure got stored in them. For the sizing, I´m 187cm and for a slim fit a medium is perfect for me. If you plan to wear multi layers of garment beneath (eg. for autumn/winter) or for a serious outdoor use, then upsize.
If you can not wait for your own worn look to develop then this vest is also available in the “stocker wash”.

Here the detailed specs:

– Traditional 30’s sportsman detailing.
– 100% cotton, American made brown duck.
– Chest kill pocket with curved opening.
– Small chest utility pocket.
– Large 4 hole American made melamine buttons.
– Two roomy front bottom pockets.
– Back cinch for adjustable fit.
– Contrast twill internal pocket facing.

I own this shirt now over a year. Definitely ranked as the No1.of my shirts in terms of usage, style, toughness and comfort. I thought I did already a post about this great denim shirt but I was wrong. So today when the  Manufactum Montatsbrief September 2013 was in the mail I was very happy to see that this piece of garment got its well deserved attention. I took some quick detail images of the shirt, have a look at the real nice buttons and the nice worn in development of the denim. Believe me its softness and comfort after a few washes is hard to match by another fabric.

Manufactum has listed it as a piece for your autumn wardrobe but it is definitely with its soft and not to thick 6.5 oz White Oak Cone Denim a good pick for summer as well.

What a combo Alex! You see a lot of belt, but this one is really special. The countless skulls in various sizes and materials, the leather structure and the buckle itself. Combined with a Tanner Goods Workmen Wallet  on a Long Tether and a Tellason jeans.
