Otter Wax, waterproof your fabric:
Thanks to Frederic for bringing my attention to Otter Wax. Waxing natural fibres to make them waterproof is not a total new invention, more a forgotten practise. Probably the only company who still does it until now on a large scale is Barbour. But actually you can waterproof your shoes, backpack, jeans or jacket with a bar of Otter Wax quite easily.

Available is Otter Wax via their webshop in the US and in Europe via Warenmagazijn.

After about 2 month of constant wear of the Tellason chore coat, now called Tellason Coverall jacket I have to say it performs very well. The big tool or utility pockets are perfect to store gloves, dust masks and other stuff. The seams, pockets, denim and rivets are all without any damage. As you can see on the images, I´m right handed by the marks of the grey nautic paint. Thanks again to Amtraq & Tellason for the “donation”.

Here the earlier post about the Tellason Chore coat / Tellason Coverall jacket.

Ecke 32 Manufacture Store Konstanz:
After a too strong coffee I decided to cycle to Konstanz for a visit at the Ecke 32 Manufacture Store. Lars Nehren was able to get some of the finest brands available to the lake of constance (Bodensee) area for what I´m and others are really happy about. Labels like Tellason, Red Wing, Momotaro, Merz beim Schwanen, Schiesser Revival, LVC  and Wolverine just to name a view, are presented only a view metres away from the Konstanz Cathedral. First thursday in the month from 7pm to 9pm he hosts the possibility of private shopping upon appointment. Thanks Lars for your time, even on a very busy saturday!

Last week the guys from Amtraq were at the lake of constance for half a week.  After reading my post about “stuff that works at work” they decided to sponsor a Tellason Chore coat / Coverall jacket which I had to promise to use at the shipyard. I agreed,  but knowing that paint, hardener,rasin and all the tools will be tough on the great jacket made me somehow sad.

Wonderful details, I especially like the huge pockets, the reinforced buttons and the possibility to close the collar tight around the neck – this will somehow restrict the itching fibres finding their way to the skin.

It´s no summer 30 C usedforworkalldayjacket but as soon as the days get colder it will be used more often.

It´s an all time classic and it took me a while to get a not too overpriced one. This one should be from the 60th/70th. What I found out is that the age can be dated by the label and the lining, so if some expert has a hint I would glad. A label in the right inside pocket has the number 9037318 if it helps. At first glance i thought the lining at the cuffs was damaged. But at a closer look, it is just the way they attached the lining jacket to the outer denim jacket.
