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.

The idea to craft a dog collar for Tillmann with my mobile number on it was born be-cause he kept loosing the “id bombs” or making writings on the inside disappear caused by his rugged lifestyle. And the reason for an ID was also necessary by the fact that the call of nature and smells made him disappear from time to time. Once the “Jagdtrieb” / “hunting instincts” get hold of him it´s unlikely that he realize a command.

So within a very short period I was asked by friends to handmade at least half a dozen dog collars, with names on them and sometimes for the more active dogs with a phone number to call. Just make sure the dog collar does not outperform your own belt by quality and style.

During the last Bread & Butter fair, Holger Peckmann from Monomento – Hamburg tailored, took orders and showed some of his designs at Fein und Ripp Berlin. I saw one of his tweed vests in the shop and it took me a while to finally realize that the craftsman / tailor of this piece was just sitting in front of me. Holger uses mostly rare deadstock / vintage canvas or tweed for his jackets, vests or trousers. One of his latest designs you can see on the Fein & Ripp website or at his Tumblr Site www.TheRuggedGuys.com
