SELVEDGE DENIM NECKTIES | BY HEPVILLE CUSTOM CLOTHING

as you know i am a fan of bow-ties. 2 months ago i bought the first neckties ever. both patterned: one camo and one with anchors – what else –, i learnt how to tie the “AMERICAN” way and just some days later i discovered HEPVILLE's DENIM SELVEDGE NECKTIES at facebook. it took me 3 weeks more to think about if these are must-haves. and indeed they are. each necktie is made of 8oz. selvedge denim, has a loop strap with selvedge details, are 57 inch/144 cm long and 2 9/16 inch/6,5 cm wide at the end. they are hand sewn shut with a hidden slip stitch. the blue one has white and red selvedge at both ends, the khaki beige and green neckties have white selvedge at the ends. for sure this stuff is handmade in germany by BELA the man behind HEPVILLE CUSTOM CLOTHING. check his ETSY shop there is much more great stuff like caps, vests f.ex. pics | LTG

ENGINEERED GARMENTS x WILLIAM FOX & SONS | MULTI PATCHWORK BAKER JACKET x PATCHWORK BELLOWS JACKET ... IS THIS A COPY ACCIDENT?

30 minutes ago i got a newsletter from PRESENT LONDON: 15% off – outerwear – code XX. on the screen i saw a jacket which i really good know because last year i was thinking maybe to buy this one. this jacket from the newsletter looks nearly 100% as the ENGINEERED GARMENTS from SS2013. is this a sale? okay, when i checked the page i saw that it is WILLIAM FOX & SONS PATCHWORK BELLOWS JACKET from the actual SS2014 collection. okay?! so searched the EG jacket from SS2013. knowing that EG has a wonderful organized collection archive at their web page i found it in a minute. damn these two jackets look so similar. is there even a business connection between EG and WF&S? you know something about? pics | Present London, Engineered Garments, blog fashionbeans.com

RISING SUN MFG CO. | RANCH HAND DUCK JACKET RAW INDIGO DENIM

another perfect piece for spring. too long this jacket was hanging without use brand new in my cupboard. now it's time to rock it to get the stiffness out of the denim. this jacket has a lot of wonderful details. especially the brown duck inserts at the pockets, end of the sleeves and at the waist i love so much. it has a vintage fit, pleated front, patch pockets and a buckle back. what a nice classic piece. i got this jacket from volls.de – check the AMTRAQ page to find a RISING SUN dealer near you. pics | LTG

DR K SOAP COMPANY | NATURAL HANDMADE BEARD CARE MADE IN IRELAND

since i got my beard soap from ALEX c/o because.blog as a present i use it daily for my beard. now it is going to the end and i was searching for an alternative soap because i could not find the TIMBER BEARD SOAP anymore. so i found the stuff from DR K SOAP COMPANY. all products are made by hand in cork, ireland, with 100% natural ingredients. when i ordered the beard soap i took a bundle with hair tonic. so using a beard tonic is new for me. before i cared my beard with a oil from OTTER WAX which is a very pleasurable feeling but the tonic is as good and it smells so f***ing perfect: like a walk through a fresh forest. and the soap ... what a wonderful smell too – YUMMY! but read about the ingredients at DR K SOAP COMPANY site and discover more products. they ship all over the world. and don't forget to watch the 3 minute video below: „Dr K’s Beard Care Products Save The Day!“ pics | LTG | vid | DR K SOAP COMPANY
