TUSCAN HUNTING VEST by GRP

A while ago I went with my family to MANUFACTUM, Frankfurt/Main as we often do on Saturdays. It's great to have breakfast there ... such kind service, best selfmade food and a great view to the “Alte Oper” (opera) Frankfurt. After breakfast we walk around looking about. Just nice. So I found this nice Tuscan Hunting Vest by Italian manufacture GRP which I mostly know for their well done knitted fabrics. Saw this vest ... had to take it with me. I love this style, this large curved pockets. Nice to wear with its 100% chambray cotton lining. It is made of cotton, has 2 front pockets, 1 small breast pocket and a large back pocket as usual for hunting vests. Really practicable: 2 inside pockets with zippers. The buttons are made of horn – very nice. The vest isn't too heavy, nearly smooth. You can get it directly from MANUFACTUM's online store. pics | LTG

iPhone LEATHER SLEEVE by ALEXANDER VON BRONWSKI MANUFAKTUR

Guys it's a while ago that I got my leather iPhone 5 sleeve handmade by leather artisan ALEXANDER VON BRONEWSKI, but the last weeks i had too much work and there is just less time to do LIFE TIME GEAR. But here are the photos of this great work from my buddy Alex v.B.. Now my “i-Phone-Pad-Collection” is completed. It is about 8 weeks ago I made these photos and the sleeve got meanwhile some nice patina and a smooth grip in daily use. Great! Like the iPad sleeve this one is also made of made of tan, cognac colored cowhide from the south of germany and sewn with waxed twine made of linen. Love it! pics | LTG

CARHARTT WIP X SLAM JAM | SJ PUTTY MICHIGAN COAT

Nice: sold out ... @ the WIP CARHARTT online store for Europe this wonderful jacket isn't available anymore – I like this, because I own on – ha! In spite of the 100% 12oz “Dearborn” canvas the jacket is really smooth and perfect for those early summer days especially in the morning and late evenings. I love the handmade painted and coated “PUTTY” style – it looks so one-of-a-kind a like. Take a look at the snaps and the special “square label”. This is a collaboration that works! Do you know SLAM JAM? Here just a few facts – you'll find more about @ the WIP Page: “... For the past twenty-five years, Slam Jam have been eagerly exploring the world, listening, observing, intercepting trends, editing and mixing them up. The result is a bridge that joins streetwear and fashion. Music, visual arts and the energy from underground cultures have always been the fuel for Slam Jam’s engine. A childlike enthusiasm for this world made the rest. ...” Beside the “PUTTY” range you'll find two other styles. Check it out ... This stuff is really special! pics | LTG
