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.

Some more images can be found @ Eric´s Life-Time-Gear blog.

Just to name a few:
Tellason, Scarti Labs, Otter Wax, Passion France, Filson, Merz b. Schwanen, Blue Blanket, 3sixteen, Fidelity, Levi´s vintage Clothing, Made and Crafted, Feinschmuck, Croots, Tanner Goods, Topo Designs, Midori, Knowledge Cotton, Reds (shame on me if I forgot a brand).

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.

Some images of a former visit @ Ecke32 here.

On our way to Konstanz we finally visited Jeanslife in Winterthur, which was on the agenda for a long time. Roger runs his shop for a more than 2 years now. He managed to hoard some of the finest brands within it. A wide selection of denim/jeans (Jeanslife!), leather jackets, boots, belts … you can walk out there fully dressed from head to toe or just add something to your wardrobe which isn´t that hard in there.  2/3 of his goods are menswear in the ground floor and an excellent selection of 1/3 for your lady at the ground floor.  For sure one of the top stores we´ve been into lately and will return soon.

Some of the brands we spotted were:
Indigofera, Tellason, Merz b. Schwanen, Dukes, Passion France, Levis Vintage Clothing, Schiesser Revival, Red Wing, Nigel Cabourn, KOI, Kiki Fritz, Scarti Lab, Penfield, Dehen 1920, Filson, American Optical ….the full list of brands here

Kaweco Sport fountain pen:
Thanks to Thomas Dirk from Merz b. Schwanen who brought my attention to this great pen, while having lunch together at the Frontküche. Later that day, I found the Kaweco Sport fountain pen @ Manufactum in Munich. Kaweco produces these pens for Manufactum based on the design from 1935. With only 10,5 cm long, a good addition to your EDC. For a very detailed review for this pen check this site.

With Uwe and Eric we went to the short fashion show at the B-74. It was helt for the int. press, which was guided trough the city of Frankfurt to selected locations before the MTV Awards the following day. The B-74 by Kami Hashemi is a bit hidden in a backyard. But a shop connected with the Red Wing Store Frankfurt which Kami runs since 1998 gets attention. Once you entered, you will see why customers are doing the pilgrimage to this shop. Top brands with history and quality are presented in a unique way. Just have a look at the cabriolet inside the shop, the counter, the flipper or the antique Hamburger Schapp filled with Filson bags.

Here an overview of the brands: Aero Leather, Atelier LaDurance, Converse, Dockers K1, Dehen, Dukes, Edwin, Filson, Johnson Motors Inc., Knowledge Cotton, G.R.P Firenze, Levi´s Vintage Cloth., Merz b. Schwanen, Nigel Cabourn, Red Wing Shoes, Rin Tanaka, Schiesser Revival, Stetson

Yesterday we visited Uwe and Alex from Amtraq, and Dirk from Merz b. Schwanen in their temporarily Showroom in Munich. What a great combination, just a bit hard to handle all that great stuff in one place, too much to see. The Dehen jackets, the indigo dyed Merz b. Schwanen shirts, the Rising sun stuff … Thanks for the great time!
