Here some preview images from some solid bronze items byFeinschmuck. Each single piece is unique by the traditional wax cast process. Skillful patinated and by so already unique in its look. Use the hooks to safely attach your wallet, keys or knife with a leash or chain to your jean. Right now they are available with cherry blossoms and surfaces from ray and ostrich.
Actually my plan was to walk over to our carpenter to pick up a device who helps us to burnishing leather belts but I found The Heritage Poston the steps. My name and address written nicely and skilled in ink and the Heritage Post stamp onto it (and a nice post stamp as well). A joy to receive post like this. The cover was released some days ago so I wasn´t that surprised but the preface is excellent as usual. The further content will be absorbed after this post is published.
Here just some quick and dirty images I shoot, it will give you an impression about the content but does not tell too much. Get a copy by yourself!
Red Wing 8128 Brogue Ranger brown Velva Retan leather
Last week I had the chance to finally see the Red Wing 8128 in the Jeanslife store in Winterthur. Roger got this model on stock since 3 weeks, quite about the same time when Red Wing Amsterdam released the info on their blog.I never liked the dark brown of the former and discontinued model and wished to have a more cognac leather. Like my Red Wing 9013 would have been perfect. The actual color of the Red Wing 8128 is hard to describe, it´s a more a “grey brown”. Definitely a bit darker as on the Red Wing Amsterdam images.
When you search for Velva Retan Leather you find out that this leather was also used for the industrial Red Wing Syle 952which tells you that it´s going to be a tough one.
Another info I found what exactly Velva Retan leather is, was this:
“Pioneer:A brand of oil retan leather. Also known as Velva Retan. After the initial tanning, the leather is subjected to hot steam in a tanning drum and then shot with hot oil and waxes. The open pores absorb these chemicals until they are saturated. This leather is primarily for work boots.”
