CHEVROLET CAMARO 1969 | TOP THREE MOST COLLECTIBLE Z/28, L78 & COPO

As a constant reader of LTG blog you must know that I love late 60s and 70s US muscle cars, especially CAMAROS! Myself, I own a CAMARO 5th generation, but my dream is a 67 or 69. Take a look at these three black beauties – damn, one nicer than the other – dreaming for this ...

Car aficionado and all-around GM guy Steve Shauger has collected quite a few Chevy pony cars in his day, but he insists the 1969 model is the best. In his search for the greatest Camaros ever built, he has corralled these three stunners, all glazed in Code 10 Tuxedo Black paint. Only 1.7 percent of the Camaros built that year wore that particular code on their flanks, adding to the hue's rarity.

THE BUTTS AND SHOULDERS BOOT | FIRST PRODUCTION RUN OF LIMITED HAND NUMBERED 100 PAIRS STARTED

He guys maybe you remember a blog post from July 2015 when I introduced the BUTTS AND SHOULDERS boots. Some days ago my buddy Wouter Munnichs c/o BUTTS AND SHOULDERS and LONG JOHN blog told me that the production of these so nice boots started. After a testing phase on the streets and a lot of positive reactions, they start the first production run which will bring strictly limited 100 pairs to you. These boots are all hand numbered with a unique number – special – great idea, I like this a lot! The Boots are made of natural tanned leather in a small factory in Portugal – for sure made by hand with the “Goodyear Welted” construction. Get your limited pair here: http://www.buttsandshoulders.com. Please check the video below to get some more really interesting impressions of the idea, the making process and more – I am sure, you'll like it! pics & video | Butts and Shoulders

RUNBELL – A RUNNERS MUST HAVE ITEM | AVOID SURPRISES AND COLLISIONS DURING YOUR RUN

After heavy trouble with my back I started the running year 2016 this week with two short runs about 8 kilometers. Last summer I found this damn wonderful gadget RUNBELL, but I did not found the right time to do a blog post about. Now I do, because of using it the first time today. All the time my wonderful RUNBELL was still in its case. I start all my runs straight from the Life Time Gear central in the middle of my hometown. It is really annoying that all 3 meters I have to shout “Attention please”, “Soooooorry”, “please make way”, ... but with my RUNBELL, I just have to flip my fingers – it works great! Perfect – I enjoy it so much. It is perfect for the urban runner and also in the forest or the fields if you pass walker and especially dog walker. The RUNBELL is sold in 2 different materials: gold and copper. When I bought mine copper was sold out. But the golden one doesn't look so bad at all. You can customize your RUNBELL sizes – they designed RUNBELL to be slightly oversized to fit even large hands comfortably. They supply two pairs of silicone inserts with every RUNBELL, so the ring size can be reduced to fit every finger perfectly. On cold days you can leave out the insert and wear RUNBELL over the glove – so I did today. It is hand made in TOKYO, Japan. Please check the RUNBELL site for much more interesting and also funny stuff. pics | LTG

BOOT OF THE DAY | #193 | POST WAR II LACE UP BOOTS

Something special today. Please excuse the “non-perfect” pics but I did not make these myself. My boot buddy from Facebook's BootOC – Boot Owners Club – HOUTY send me this from his new unworn dead stock post World War II boots. Aren't these wonderful? Best condition. He bought the boots in Amsterdam for – in German we  say: “Apfel und ein Ei” – ...  an apple and an egg ... what means very cheap.  Houty wrote me that the  boots are built as robust as the vintage German tank TIGER – and indeed, they look damn tight. The boots must be made in the early fifties; before this time German military boots had no laces: mybe you know the famous “Knobelbecher”. I think they are about 6" high, have a massive profiled nailed VORWERK sole, leather insole, 6 eyelets and a metal shank at the toe. Houty put the laces of his vintage Red Wing's Beckman to it. Best look – great deal! If you have some questions concerning to the boots, please feel free to contact Houty. pics | HOUTY

GROOMING STUFF FROM SOUL OBJECTS BERLIN ... AS A PRESENT ... UNBELIEVABLE

Hi guys, first blog post 2016. I am sorry, but work was so hard and busy the first days of the new year. After a complete working through weekend it was such a pleasure to get a big parcel from SOUL OBJECTS BERLIN as a present – yes, as a present – this monday. What a superb surprise! Thank you so much soul sisters and brothers Melanie Rieman, Kornelius Werhahn-Mees and Oliver Hausner you made me really happy this day. What a perfect start for this week. And the best is, that I will have fun for weeks with this stuff. I noticed that the soul family send a lot of new products I do not know by now – exciting. I will try everything hard and tell you about the stuff at Life Time Gear. I am really curios about the new pomades from The Iron Society, Brooklyn. I got them all – 3 different sorts ... YES! Also the products from The Brighton Beard Company make me very curios. Isn't the design of the tins, the soap and the bags nice? Also the Laboratorio Avere La Barba products – MADE IN ITALY, inspired by the force and intelligence of nature  ... Thanks again for this SOUL FOOD! pics | LTG
