I´ve seen this vest/waistcoat the first time about a year ago when I first met Uwe and Alex from Amtraq. Last week I got the chance to have a closer look at Dirks vest No. 17/18. Worn now for about a year and already showing nice signs and patterns of it.
Element – Emerald Collection launch shoe care set giveaway: Elements new Emerald Collection was launched during Bread & Butter in Berlin. At the launch party the first 100 guests received a special gift (made by Seil Marschall), thanks Kiki for the invitation.
The collection launch of this new brand was a success. Not just the gift was great, the party with lots of interesting folks from all over the world and lots of Jameson Whiskey was outstanding.
Ha just found a video posted by Highsnobiety of the event (sec. 9 you can see me in the background near the entrance.)
Seil Marschall – backpack – mini canoepack – ogange
Here some detail images of the small rucksack by Seil Marschall. The design and the creating of the backpack is really well thought of. Good strong seams, strong leather, thick canvas and to add the copper rivets. I also really like the “fast exit / opener” which you can see on pic 4. The backpack comes also in other and more decent colors, check the product page for more details. A rucksack to last a lifetime which makes the choosing of the color quite hard.
Last Saturday I had an appointment with Thomas Fressle owner of the Seil Marschall company in Ravensburg – Germany. A true gentleman who continues the company tradition in its 4th generation, which was founded 1896.
This is just an overview of the shop / warehouse and part 1 of several posts. The following ones will go more into details about their own products like the backpacks, shoes and jackets.
Apart from the Seil Marshall products which are crafted not to far from Ravensburg, you can find other items in the shop which complete the range of products very well. Shoes from Alden or boots from Red Wing, jeans from the Pike Bothers, and lots of other exclusive menswear brands.
Find below the statement from the Seil Marschall website, which really describes the company philosophy very well and it’s quality standards.
“We still make the quality worn by our grandfathers”
We are making the finest quality since 1896.
In the most companies the quality has changed into quantity. We are still a small company in the modern sense and haven’t changed to much.
Our quality is not possible to produce in big quantities.”Our best machines are still our hand”. We take the finest natural materials and accessories available and take us enough time to manufacture long lasting products. In all our goods we put in many time and functional details to protect you in the extremest conditions – “we still make the quality worn by our grandfathers”.
More than 100 years we are still a family business ( in the 4th generation).
