THE ONE WHO KNOCKS POMADE & BLUE JACKET BEARD OIL | by SHEAR REVIVAL

Some weeks ago I discovered the one and only TOWK “THE ONE WHO KNOCKS” POMADE by SHEAR REVIVAL. For me the absolute best pomade i ever used the last nearly 20 years. The consistency, the usage and this unique and perfect smell is unbeatable. I discovered TOWK at the wonderful done THE POMP site. Check the video below and you will see TOWK in use and a well done review. TOWK is made of beeswax, white petroleum, organic coconut oil, microcrystalline wax, jojoba oil, castor oil, fragrance oils. It is a traditional petro/oil based pomade. I need two washes to get it out. The hold is just perfect for my light hair: medium/firm and for me so important: the whole day renewable without using another portion of pomade. The smell is a killer: it is an oak aged bourbon scent with hints of oak, vanilla and coffee. Because of this IT KNOCKS! My mother told me that this pomade smells similar to the one her dad, my grandpa, used a long time ago – classic. The color ist light blue and it is made in Asbury, New Jersey, USA. The Blue Jacket Beard Oil is very nice too and for sure it is also pure organic made. The smell is very nice but not so KNOCKING and after use your beard is so smooth. Very fine. And the prices from Shear Revival are fine too! The problem for us Oversea-People is to get this wonderful stuff. Just directly from the states. But it is worthwhile!!! pics | LTG | © video | www.the-pomp-official.com

BOOT OF THE DAY | #192 | ALDEN DARK BROWN COUNTRY CALF GRAIN INDY BOOT @ FRANS BOONE

What a wonderful boot! When I had to compose a boot for my own it could have the same look as this ALDEN available @ FRANS BOONE did with. From the bootleg to the sole – just perfect. Love the chocolate structured grain calf leather combined with one of my most beloved soles: the ALDEN crepe sole with a leather tip. Combine this great look: the brass eyelets and hooks. Awesome. pics | @FRANS BOONE

CUSTOM LEATHER WALLET LANEYARD COMBINED WITH A SILVER STINGRAY HOOK FO RED MOON WALLET | by FEINSCHMUCK

I think this is one of the most awesome pieces I own. Damn, when I got this shit out of the sack where it was packed i said “YES, YES, YES ... this is it” Great. FEINSCHMUCK you did best work again. The stingray patterned hook is so nice to look at and touch and the lanyard which was done by great leather artisan ARNO BUCK needs no words. Sorry, but i must praise myself a bit because the idea for this combination i had myself. The lanyard of my beloved RED MOON wallet which is now about 9 years old breaks more and more and so i was searching for a lanyard which fits this wonderful wallet … but i couldn't find one. So FEINSCHMUCK and ARNO had to made one. THX ALEXANDER for attending this great job and made my idea real. The anchor is a vintage piece from WERKSTATT MUENCHEN; it's about 15 years old and I wore it a long time around my neck. enjoy the pics. pics | LTG

THE GIGANTIC BEARD THAT WAS EVIL | A GRAPHIC NOVEL BY STEPHEN COLLINS

What a wonderful book. A friend of mine ULI GASPER gave me the hint that i had to check this graphic novel as a beard lover. So I did. It is amazing. THE TIMES says “This book is a the same time a satire, a cut-off and a catastrophe film – an experience”. THE OBSERVER: “This book must be a classic”. THE GIGANTIC BEARD THAT WAS EVIL or in german, “Der gigantische Bart, der böse war” tells the story about Dave, who is living in a land called HERE, where all people live  a monotone and regulatory overkilled life. When Dave begins someday to think over the sense about this f***ing world he lives in, a gigantic beard begins to grow: a shocking occasion which made such a chaos to Dave's life and the whole land he lives in. This graphic novel is a bow to these great names: ORWELL, KAFKA and GODZILLA. So exciting, so very well drawn – a wonderful book done by STEPHEN COLLINS who lives in London. 240 pages, hardcover, 21,5 x 30,5 cm big. pics | LTG
