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.

Superior Labor Bread & Butter Summer 2013

Hardly you see a brand who manages to combine canvas, leather and solid brass hardware so well together – for sure a Japanese Brand. I hope they will be at the Bread & Butter January 2014 for a closer look. Thanks to Takao for pointing me to Superior Labor Website.

I´ve met Fabian from Pike Brothers at the Bread&Butter two weeks ago and my intentions was to tell him how I honor his/their products which are authentic, durable and affordable. His statement was more or less that his roots are within the classic hot rod scene for which he developed cloth where “form follows function” those guys wear his garments at work and are happy they are worth the price by outlasting cheaper stuff they bought before by far.

And another thing was to check their Elephant skin fabric which they use now in trousers, vests and jackets but somehow I became hooked by the texture of their new
1937 Pike Brothers Roamer mohawk check Shirt. 

If would not have seen that shirt at their stand I would have guessed it has Japanese roots. (see it as a compliment). What a great fabric, soft, nice in detail and breathable. For sure perfect at temperatures to wear which we have right now (+30 Celsius).

Kiki Fritz – Cartridge ring and cufflinks

Just a small glimpse into the cartridge collection of Kiki Fritz who we met at the Bread&Butter in Berlin. Kiki Fritz is a gold- & silversmith from south Tyrol – Bozen. Inspired by finds of old rifle cartridges from WWI + WWII she started to cut off the bottoms and integrate them into rings and cufflinks. Since the state of decay of those cartridges and the id marks, all works by her are unique.

Saint James + Twothirds naval shirt:
Walked by this great shirt at the Bread&Butter Summer 2013. Did you know that striped shirts were so popular by sailors be-cause they tend to be easier to be spotted when the went overboard + that classic marine striped shirts got 13 stripes. The shirt can be ordered for 100 Euro here. Enjoy to watch the Movie “UNE HISTOIRE D’EAU — MADE IN FRANCE” or the History of the sea/water.

pure blue japan & Syoaiya:
Im far from being a denim expert, but the denim i saw at the stand of pure blue japan & Syoaiya was the most extraordinary in color, texture and look for me. Not much to say about it, i hope the macro shoots speak for himself.  The uneven weaving caused by old looms and the rich indigo color will result in a great development which you see on the  worn samples at the end of this post.

Thanks to the Bread&Butter to bring companies like this to Berlin.
