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.
Fein und Ripp – Pike Brothers Party – Bread & Butter 2013:
At the Fire Dept. I had the chance to have a talk with Fabian from Pike Brothers and he invited me to Fein und Ripp at the party. Traditional Bavarian food and beer was served there by Fabian and it was the place to go at the wednesday after the Bread & Butter fair.
Fein und Ripp can be described as a well stocked Pike Brothers homebase. But as you can see it´s another unique shop far away from being normal which is surely worth a visit. The interieur is carefully selected and seems natural in there. Family run by father and his two sons with a great dedication to quality and deadstock items.
