THE MISSION | WAYNE HUSSEY IS BACK

WAYNE HUSSEY the voice is back. this evening he will be live on stage in DAS BETT in frankfurt, germany and me and KLAUS will see him with THE MISSION. call me crazy because of their music and their dark attitude but THE MISSION is one of my absolute favorite bands i heard in the late eighties and i never stopped listen to. i am sure it'll be a great evening. beside the band celebrates its 25th birthday.

LIFE TIME GEAR @ I AM ALONZO

great honor to be mentioned in a post with famous blogs streetetiquette.com and coolhunting.com. it is a pity that i can't read swedish - is it swedish or norse? but some parts i think i understand, for example “kule boots” ... “vare evig” ... and that sounds good. thanks I AM ALONZO


BURTON x CARHARTT | F/W WINTER COLLABORATION

yes guys. to complete your rugged snowboard look these pieces are the right stuff for you. months ago i posted the BURTON x RED WING SHOES snowboard boot collaboration. the boot is now available at f.ex. b-74, frankfurt. and the CARHARTT snowboard jacket and trouser should be available soon in selected stores around the world. i found the jacket at austrian BLUE-TOMATO for 300 euros. i think this jacket is not only wearable on the board. it seems to be a cool winterjacket with a lot of high-tech details and lifetime guarantee with a great traditional attitude! the stuff is available in black and classic duck brown – my favorite. pics | carhartt-wip

LIFE TIME GEAR | PRIVATE FAVS #30 MAN MAN “PIRANHAS CLUB”

yet another video far different from yesterdays DUCK SAUCE. look at the little-kid GREASERS who took revenge at their beer-throwing a..holes in the neighborhood. great old school fashion in small sizes, best action, wonderful scenes and awesome pictures. LEX HALABY did a really good job – congratulations. this video will be one of my absolute favorite ones although MAN MAN's music isn't the kind of music i like. the band is completely crazy ... “PIRANHAS“ is an absolute hearable exception.

LIFE TIME GEAR | PRIVATE FAVORITES #29 “HIKING”

last week i took 2 days off and went with my family to my birth city FULDA for hiking till yesterday. we did some tours with my dad in the beautiful HOCHRHÖN region having best weather. on friday we went to KREUZBERG where an old franciscan abbey is. it was a great day with a lot of walked kilometers, drinking self brewed beer and spectacular views. by the way: the “CLASSIC DANNER LIGHT” is the perfect hiking boot. so light, so comfortable, waterproofed with breathable GORE-TEX® lining, VIBRAM kletterlift outsole ... absolutely genial! high tech combined with retro, classic design. bad pics | LTG
