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.
Squale Professional Divers Watches: Back in 2000 I did about 130 drysuit dives in coldwater in one year, nearly all decompression dives. Maximum depth was more than 70m for 10 minutes and then 50m for another 10 minutes. So I was quite interested in having a closer look at the Squale Professional Diver Watches that Amtraq is distributing now. A non fancy divers watch with all the classical features. A bezel for keeping track of the time (can be alternatively used for backing bread as well) auto eta clockwork, saphir glass and the watch crown later than 4 o´clock. Alternatively equipped with an Nato watch strap or a leather one by L.I. Sounders.
I´ve seen this vest/waistcoat the first time about a year ago when I first met Uwe and Alex from Amtraq.Last week I got the chance to have a closer look at Dirks vest No. 17/18.Worn now for about a year and already showing nice signs and patterns of it.
AO – American Optical is still the most favoured eyewear/sunglasses of the US Military. The company history goes back 1826. The AO sunglasses have been worn by Commander Neil Armstrong on the moon, Tom Cruise in Top Gun and Dennis Hopper in Easy Rider. So I guess they are appropriate for me as well. Since the glass of them are rather dark when you go indoors (as a sunglass for protection should be) the upgrade to make them perfect and easy to stow away will be the L.I. Sounder Leather Sunglass Strap.
Raw vintage western buckles from Feinschmuck: These raw bronze belt buckles will soon be fitted with some of the finest bridle leather from Tanner Goods. But before there is a lot of work to be done. Check the images of the final product from the Distributor Amtraq.
What a nice collaboration between my family and one of my friends Uwe from Amtraq.For my anniversary I had the joy to unwrap this great jacket which was on my wishlist since seing the first time.
What a bomb proof construction with some of the best materials around. My favorite is the structure/surface of the american bison leather. Its like a bigger scotch grain but not as much as ostrich leather. Best of all, it looks great from the beginning, no big break in time.
