DEVIL'S WEED | NEW CIGAR LINE

what a great design! i love it so much. the term “Devil's Weed” was used by 
the spanish inquisition to discourage the use of tobacco. the ROCKIT 
SCIENCE AGENCY took an old world approach to the design and development 
of this new cigar line. the cigars are handmade in the dominican republic 
and packed in those special designed cedar boxes. hope they'll come to germany ...

LUCKY TIGER

today my barber olli cut my waldschrat-look-a-like-hair-style off. now, i got
my old school crew cut back. and i like it! after entering olli's barber shop
i saw some very nice bottles standing behind the cash desk: LUCKY TIGER
grooming products. i never saw this brand before in germany. all products
are still made in the USA and they celebrate their 75th birthday this year.
the package design is so nice and i think it is a must to test them. in germany
you can order from lucky tiger's product range at pomade-shop.eu.

CHUKKAS | VIBERG and RED WING

VIBERG boots are not so popular as RED WING boots here in germany - by far.
today i did some steps in a viberg boot for the first time. before, i knew viberg just
from pics and reading about. my friends at volls.de got a small delivery a few days
ago and so i was happy to take a look at these boots and try them out. believe me,
those boots are made of the highest quality work standards, are very comfortable
and their look is phantastic. a great experience. compare the viberg 836 and the
red wing 3144. both chukkas are very nice but they are so different, not only because
of their looking but also of their price. decide on your own ...
