LVC Levi´s Vintage Clothing & Bing Crosby Denim Tuxedo

As with exceptional things, they get remarkable when they are connected by a good story they can tell. Thanks to Thomas for guiding me around a bit through the denim world @ the Bread & Butter Summer 2013. Before his tour I was just fascinated by LVC new collection and especially the yellow Western Shirt made of silk and so nicely done embroidery. But via Thomas I understood the story of the Bing Crosby Denim Tuxedo made by Levi´s. A limited edition of this Tuxedo will be produced by Levi´s,  an Investment and for sure it gets a well hunted collectors item.

Here the short story about this Tuxedo and Bing Crosby´s connection to it.
After he was told to be not dressed appropriate in his Levi´s Jeans by a Canadian Hotel Clerk and was nearly rejected to get a hotel room for the night, Bing told the story Levi´s and they went into action and crafted him a Denim Tuxedo. The President of the American Hotel Association even put a Label inside and granted him – Bing Crosby entrance to all Hotels in America in this Tuxedo.

Kiki Fritz – Cartridge ring and cufflinks

Just a small glimpse into the cartridge collection of Kiki Fritz who we met at the Bread&Butter in Berlin. Kiki Fritz is a gold- & silversmith from south Tyrol – Bozen. Inspired by finds of old rifle cartridges from WWI + WWII she started to cut off the bottoms and integrate them into rings and cufflinks. Since the state of decay of those cartridges and the id marks, all works by her are unique.

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.

Berlin belt buckle – Berlin Gürtel & Platz der Luftbrücke monument:
Just in front of the Berlin Tempelhof Airport there is the Platz der Luftbrücke with its monument. When we walked by to the Bread and Butter fair, I realized that the patina of the Berlin Feinschmuck Gürtel/belt goes quite well with it.
