PEACOAT | SCHOTT vs. MISTER FREEDOM SUGAR CANE

schott did a new peacoat - a denim one. very nice, but not a new idea.
look at the MFSC denim pecoat 6284 pre wash pic. SO GREAT!
the pic is from march 2009; you can find more on the COTTON DUCK
site. and take a look at the actual fall 2010 MFSC collection: there
is another early pattern peacoat which is called the MIDNIGHT
P-JACKET, made of 16 oz. indigo black denim (aka “midnight twill”).

WESTERLAND | SYLT, GERMANY

holiday time - just for 7 days. going to sylt the awesome german island
in the north sea. i remembered a song about westerland, the biggest
village on this island, by DIE ÄRZTE a famous german punk rock band.
my god the song and the video below is from 1988: terrific! nice gimmick:
the guitar of singer and lead guitarist FARIN URLAUB has the shape
of the island - he played it on live gigs this time.

RED WING SHOES | NEW OXFORDS 2011

damn, i own 3 pairs of these - they are my favourite summer shoes.
no socks, no compromise. bleeding foot for one week but then: walking
to the end of the world! next summer there will be two other colours
and leathers; seen on RED WING 1905. and they are looking damn
pretty nice. 5 pairs. hm, for every working day another one. freaky?
i think so ...
