NIGEL CABOURN EVEREST PARKA vs. HAN PARKA

and the winner is: NIGEL CABOURN's EVERST PARKA. one of the finest stuff, maybe the finest, my cupboard stores. great replica look made from 100% ventile proofed cotton which was used in WWII by the british military. i just can wear the parka at maximum 0°C - it keeps you really warm, hand filled with goose down, a british sheepskin collar and coyote fur ruff with an adjustable bracing wire. this CABOURN piece is based on the exact jacket Sir EDMUND HILLARY wore on his conquest of mount everest. available at COGGLES.COM. the HAN PARKA made by danish HAN KJOBENHAVN looks a bit poor beside the EVEREST PARKA, like a little brother – there are some similarities. but the HAN looks nice too. i love the color. AND it is affordable. the EVEREST PARKA is for life; it must be when you look at the price! i had to sell some jackets before buying this icon piece ... pics | endclothing.co.uk | coggles.com

RED WING SHOES x STETSON HATS | A NEW COLLAB

wow, never hear about that collaboration before i got some hot news from the RWS central europe: “ “Stetson and Red Wing are bringing their shared American Heritage sensibility to a fashion collection of headwear for this fall in selected stores.  Both Stetson hats and Red Wing boots were born in American and have become best sellers across the world. Stetson and Red Wing are very proud that their first collaboration will debut now in selected stores.The collection includes 4 styles that all incorporate Red Wing boot leathers into the hats. There are two eight-panel or newsboy styles - one all leather cap and one stitched from a dark sporting plaid with a leather brim.The third style is a fur trapper using the sporting plaid and chocolate leather trimmed with the softest rabbit fur. Further, there is a classic Marlon Brando cap, made of original Red Wing leather. Beyond the materials and design, both companies have a style that celebrates quality and craftsmanship.”  pics | Red Wing Heritage Europe


AUDI 100 COUPÉ S vs. AUDI A7 SPORTSBACK

thx ALEX from great be-cause-blog for posting the pics of the AUDI 100 COUPE S from 1973. this car will be sold by ALLTAGSKLASSIKER. if i would have 13.000 euros “play-money” i would buy this beauty at once. it remains me so much of the 70ies when i drove in this car through my hometown with my dad who was selling AUDI at these days. i felt like the king of the road. the 100 COUPÉ was really rare even 30 years ago. today this model reminds me as an inspiration for the actual AUDI A7 SPORTSBACK. but what's about the spirit? nowadays AUDIS look so similar A5 SPORTSBACK, A7 SPORTSBACK, A6 or A4? damn, where is the individuality? f***ing uniform, standard chassis. look at the 100 COUPÉ: this one was really exotic and something special for its time. pics | alltagsklassiker & different sources from the www

LAND ROVER SERIES 1 | LOWRIDER

damn, this LAND ROVER is so low that just a WRIGLEY'S “EXTRA FUSION” pack gets through. so fucked up, so puristic. this one is not for all the golfing BARBOUR wax jacket wearing babbits with their labradors. this is not for all leisure adventure boys with their polished RANGE ROVERS or f***ing EVOQUES. this LAND ROVER is a pretty cool hot rod – like it or not – i do! pics | Steve Dyer on RETRORIDES

SHWOOD | HANDCRAFTED WOODEN EYEWEAR

i love these wooden old school frames made by SHWOOD. there are 5 different frames and 3 wood types: available in cherry, east indian rosewood or zebrawood sourced from authorized and supervised plantations from different african countries. all frames are produced in a handcrafted manufacturing process. i would like to have the “CANBY” and the “GOVY” but at the moment they don't offer the possibility to change the sunglasses to prescription lenses – damn. see the models and some shots from the actual lookbook and their gallery. beside: SHWOOD is selected as a finalist in DELL's “AMERICA'S FAVOURITE SMALL BUSINESS” competition. vote daily for them!  pics | shwood
