Adam & Eve Lifestyle Accessories – Lindau Bodensee:
We were around 8 years old when Jeff and I were chased by a angry dog – we made it. More than 30 years later my friend Jeffrey Robertson bailed out of the IT-Business and started his own shop last month. A fine selection of high quality, colorful and innovative products. The focus is on bags, handbags, backpacks, wallets and accessories.
Ed-Meier store Munich: When Uwe from Amtraq told me the Topo Design stuff arrived at the Ed-Meier store and fits just perfectly in the tasteful shop, I had to have a look. Ed-Meier is know for their handmade goodyear welt shoes since 1596 but you will find more than that in the flagship store. A great mix of traditional products and accessoires in classic colors and patterns but enriched by lively and newer ones as well.
Particularly the fine selection of pocket knifes I did not expect or the skull & bones suspenders. They have their “Gamsbar” close by which I somehow missed to see. But for sure this shop will be on the agenda for future visits in Munich.
The Heritage Post No. 4 1/2013:
Exactly a year ago the first issue of The Heritage Post came to my attention at the B&B. Im glad to had the joy of going through another 3 Magazines published by Uwe van Afferdensince then. His foreword about the mainstream getting into “Heritage” hit´s the spot very well. Hurry up and grap your copy @ the stores or order it online!
Amtraq and Merz b. Schwanen Showroom visit Munich: Yesterday we visited Uwe and Alex fromAmtraq, and Dirk fromMerz b. Schwanenin theirtemporarily 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!
Meeting the Amtraq Distribution guys: I had the joy to meet Uwe and Alex from the Amtraq Distibution Team after and at the Outdoor fair 2012 in Friedrichshafen this week. The setup of their stand was without doubt the coolest of the whole fair. The products they represent, the chevy and Uwe and Alex themselves. From the Dehen baseball jackets, the Topo Design backpacks, the Tanner Goods leather stuff and bags or the Swim-ology swim shorts. All brands shown there were carefully selected by their style and quality. I hope they will come down again next year to represent their portfolio.
