I guess my favorite workjacket is in use now since about 3-4 years. Recently I did not wear it too often at work, since I´m want to preserve it as long as possible in it´s condition. But the good news is I got a 2nd one as a backup. See the last image as a comparison between the fabric when it was new and now.
What shall I say about this jacket? It´s typical german “Blaumann” style appearance is just a trick. This superb material, the fine details and it´s design makes it so unique – for those who take a closer look. Inspried by a vintage workwear jacket and refined/designed by one of my favorite designers Cristiano Berto. Cristiano´s 1st PAT-RN collection is always a surprise and not just garnments, they are collector items. Items you find in selected stores around the globe.
Have a look at Eric´s website to see some more image about this jacket in the new condition.
Time for a change – A new pair of Tellason Sheffield 16.5 oz Raw Denim Jeans arrived:
Exactly 2 years ago I got my first Tellason Jean the Ankara in 14.75 oz, and now there is a time for a change. Or at least to start to break in a new pair of Jeans. Thanks to Amtraq and Tellason for this great new pair. The Ankara needs some patching in the crouch area which probably was caused by cycling quite a lot. Apart from that there is a lot of life in them, but quite sad to realize some time they will just fall apart ( and I do not will use them as a underwear ;-).
The reason I choose the Sheffield in favor to the Ankara was just to try a slightly different cut. The Sheffield is quite the same pattern as the Ankara with enough space for having a comfortable fit for guys with bigger legs and a bit more tampered to the end. The 16.5 oz fabric woven by White Oak Cone Mills Denim for Tellason fells like a tank but I might have forgotten how the 14.75 oz felt at the beginning. I´m really looking forward to see the development of this pair after the first wash – which won´t take too long since muddy dogs or myself are quite good in not avoiding dirt to well.
At one of my favorite drift shops, again I found something useful. An old clay form for a Swabian dessert called “Pfitzauf”. I guess I will give this traditional recipe a try sometime (never heard before). But my intentions were to put some sweet yeast dough, filled with plum jelly or other fruits and top it with a giant amount of brown butter, bread crumbs and caramelized sugar. The first try happened about 4 hours after I bought the form, be-cause I already had some dough for bread in the kitchen to rise, which i altered with milk, vanilla sugar and butter. They were ok for a first try but for sure I need even more butter (150g+)! Topped with lots of vanilla sauce could turn out to be an all time favorite.
I own this shirt now over a year. Definitely ranked as the No1.of my shirts in terms of usage, style, toughness and comfort. I thought I did already a post about this great denim shirt but I was wrong. So today when the Manufactum Montatsbrief September 2013 was in the mail I was very happy to see that this piece of garment got its well deserved attention. I took some quick detail images of the shirt, have a look at the real nice buttons and the nice worn in development of the denim. Believe me its softness and comfort after a few washes is hard to match by another fabric. Manufactum has listed it as a piece for your autumn wardrobe but it is definitely with its soft and not to thick 6.5 oz White Oak Cone Denim a good pick for summer as well.
Stitches, Leather Structure and Soles:
After a glass of Gin Tonic (Hendricks) I got the idea to take some macro shoots of Stitches, Leather Structures and Soles of my boots. Thats the outcome. Have a nice weekend!
