FATIGUE PANTS by TELLASON | BRAND NEW CLASSIC STUFF

Last week Uwe E. Maier c/o Amtraq Distribution send me this brand new classic Fatigue Pants made by TELLASON. Damn – these are really nice. So comfortable, loose fit but with contemporary tapered legs for a perfect fit and look. The design is classic – Fatigue Pant in 8.5 oz cotton sateen, based on the famous OG-107: “The OG-107 was the basic work utility uniform of all branches of the United States Armed Forces from 1952 until its discontinuation in 1989. The designation came from the U.S. Army's coloring code "Olive Green 107" and "Olive Green 507", which were shades of dark green, the OG-107 being cotton and OG-507 polyester-cotton blend introduced in the early 1970s. Regardless of the fabric, the two shades were almost identical. The OG-107 was superseded by the Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) throughout the 1980s, and was also used by several other countries, including ones that received military aid from the United States.” TELLASON offers this modern well done  “Replica” in khaki and traditional olive. The Fatigues are Made in Italy, are pre-washed and feature a zip fly, the typical buttoned back and large front pockets. I wore the pants for the first time when doing the pics ... I still wear the olive one ... love it: so comfortable, so good lookin' ... So: this is what I call Life Time Gear! The pants are exclusively available @ B74, Cultizm, UBS Classics, Riders Room, Gross4 Aces, Trekkingladen Regensburg, Bremerich Jeans, Denim & Iron and Lord. pics | LTG

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
