Red Wing leather work gloves:
I´ve been yesterday for a quick visit to Munich and as most of the time visited Burghard Pflug´s Gasoline Alley. Hard to leave his shop without finding something. This time I got a pair of Red Wing leather work gloves. With the right jacket or trousers a man hardly needs gloves but sometimes I wished I had one. So they had to be constructed well and this pair fitted my requirements as I can say now.
– Thick cowhide leather
– Reinforced patch on palm and thumb
– A leather which will develop nicely by it´s use in time

A weekend in Munich and esp. the saturday “morning” isn´t complete without a visit at the Gasoline Alley. So last saturday I was there around 2pm, just to come back again 2:55pm (5 min before closing) be-cause of this seaman trouser/pants. Burkhard Pflug created this trouser with a lot attention for details and I have to say It is perfect. The fabric and the cut feels very comfortable and areas which more stress are reinforced.
I´guess there is no real excuse not to have one. You can chose between navy blue and beige.

Aero Leather Highwayman horsehide jacket brown:

Last spring I ordered a Aero Leather Highwayman horsehide jacket at a visit in munich, from Burghard Plug – Gasoline Alley. The process of finding the “right” jacket took years. Aero leather jackets are regarded to be the “Rolls Royce” of all. I totally have to agree, the craftsmanship and the quality of the materials used are hard to top. Regarding the price I even would say it is a bargain. Endless options to customize your own jacket which you have to deal with the next decades need some advice. So I strongly recommend to visit one of the Aero Leather dealers for advice. For good images beside the original Aero Leather website check Kentaurus by Stefan Laskowski in Cologne.

Three month later I finally got a call from Burghard and he told me the jacket arrived. I have to say at the beginning the leather jacket did not fit very well but because of the extremely thick leather it takes a bit of break in time. The true character and fit of the jackets develops over the time. The jackets weights around 4-5 kg with heavy front quarter horsehide. At the beginning it was hard to lift the arm and to touch the back of the neck collar – just to give you a picture. The jacket still feels like a body armor but the resistance has decreased a lot. Nice abrasion marks and “folds” are creating and the jacket is “falling” more naturally.

If you wonder why the jacket has no cord or chain for hanging it on a hook. No way! The weight of the jacket would deform the jacket, just throw it on the floor, thats it. I will post more images over the time to trace the changes.
