Impressions Bread & Butter Summer 2014

I attended with Feinschmuck the Bread & Butter Summer 2014 and was part of the Amtraq Dist. stand in the Fire Department area. A great event with so many good brands. Unfortunately I did not have the time to wander around and take more images. Here just a quick glimpse into some of the brands I was close to or really caught my eye.

Ordershow Frankfurt Feinschmuck @ B74 / Amtraq

Last week I traveled with the Feinschmuck collection to Frankfurt to attend an ordershow which was hosted by B74 & Amtraq. Some impressions I was able to capture a lot not. It was a great event in an even greater setup. Thanks Kami and his team & Amtraq to make this show happen. It was amazing to be part with a quite exclusive set of labels/brands there. Visited by some of the best german stockists who had all the time to choose their goods for 2014.

Ecke32 Manufacture Store Visit Konstanz

We did not visit Lars Nehren and his Manufacture Store Ecke32 for nearly a year, so it was great to see him again and the transformation/change of his store. Some brands have taken over others since then. The former, let´s call it the “peak performance” room is now for womens wear only, which goes very well with the stuff for the dudes. Lars Ecke32 made it quick to the shops you should see when you are in the south of Germany, the “Dreiländereck” (Lake Constance surrounded by Germany, Austria and Switzerland). Ahh and I should not forget to add, he is restocked with some Feinschmuck items now!

Brands quite evident there are: Momotaro, Filson, Tellason, Dehen 1920, Trickers, Red Wing, Schiesser Revival, Pike Brothers, Levis Vintage Clothing, Merz b. Schwanen, Gitta Plotnicki, Feinschmuck, Edwin, Wolverine, Nabholz, Nigel Cabourn, Canada Goose and Inis Meáin just to name a view. The full brand portfolio you can view here.

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.

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!
