Through a hint by a follower I came across this furniture designer / carpenter. A great and probably a very comfortable chair to grab a good book and chill. Check also the other products Phloem Studio crafts.

FHB Corduroy Walz Jacket / Sakko

FHB in Bielefeld also referred by themselves as the “Original Bielefelder” is producing since 1894, 100% of their goods in Germany. You might have spotted the craftsman doing their Walz/Waltz after their apprenticeship. This tradition is still proudly done in some crafts where you travel with minimum belongings, have to hitchhike, shall not come close to your hometown for some years and other “rules”. (check here for some more detailed info about the tradition).

Said that it´s is logic that those guys wont travel with an improper wardrobe. FHB´s aim is to provide those craftsmen with a sturdy, high quality wardrobe so they can fulfill their job and journey. A really tough Corduroy is the basic of their products. Lined with a strong canvas and tough buttons. There is no fault spottable in the construction. Another fine detail is the “Z” like sewn on buttons which stands for “Zunft”, a registered trademark of FHB. The more traditional two row jacket/sakko has 6 buttons who stand for the workdays and the vest/waistcoat underneath got 8 buttons for the work hours on every day.

When I first saw this company and their products I was happy to finally spot a german/european company who can keep up when it comes to heritage brands on the globe. This jacket is an overseen classic which will add well to a wardrobe with style. Rugged, no flimsy details, so easy to take care after and long wearing which will pay off after a while. Thanks FHB for working dedicated to maintain your standards.

Where to get FHB outside Germany?
Manufactum has some of their pants and Winkelbediende Warenmagazijn is selling FHB since 3 years. Within Germany e.g. you can order it at Zunft.de.

And last but not least a Walz/Waltz inspired song by Tom Waits.
