from the actual SS12 AUTHENTIC COLLECTION, inspired by the clothing worn by the DESERT RATS – the british african troops during WWII, commanded by general MONTGOMERY. the TENZING JACKET is  an iconic NC piece, which is and was available in different styles and fabrics, but this one is really extraordinary. available at UK's endclothing – just arrived with a lot of other NC stuff. check the new “NC ARMY PLIMSOLE” shoes. great fit to the new camou TENZING JACKET. i should start saving some money. pics | endclothing

CAMOUFLAGE RED WING SHOES # 8150 | SOME FACTS

two days ago this boot was LIFE TIME GEAR's 111th BOOT OF THE DAY. damn, so many clicks ... a RED WING SHOES voice from “the off” told me, that these boots are one of the rarest RWS ever made. just 150 boots worldwide were made in the first, and i think, only run in the years 2004 and 2005. in this years there was real CAMOUFLAGE RAGE and because of that the responsible head - he must have been a really creativ head – thought why not taking a real hunter pattern like MOSSEY OAK on a RED WING BOOT. cool decision! beside, RWS used MOSSEY OAK patterns for their hunting brand IRISH SETTER this time. so the 8150 must be the ITEM OF THIS WEEK from LIFE TIME GEAR: a real must have. thx DE for informations. pics | LTG & somewhere from the web

BOOT OF THE DAY | #111 | CAMOUFLAGE RED WING SHOES # 8150

it is years ago i saw this damn, f***ing, fancy boot the first time. i even remember the man who wears this shitty boot: it was PETER HECKMANN and i asked him “what the hell happened to this RED WING 875?” some years later i met KAMI from the RED WING STORE FRANKFURT and owner of B-74 wearing a rugged 8150. and i did not know what to think now about the boot: it was looking strange but really, really cool rugged and vintage like it was. now 3 years later after asking myself several times to own this boot or not i bought it some weeks ago. and believe me i am so happy about my 8150. it is really funny seeing the people staring at me feet ... i think the RED WING STORE FRANKFURT and B-74 are the only shops worldwide selling this boot. aren't they? the 8150 is based on a 8138 but the leather is printed with a classic “DUCK HUNTING” camouflage pattern in cooperation with MOSSY OAK®. for even a better camouflage effect you should use brown laces. i am sorry, but there is no information about the history of this boot – nowhere! come on and get one of the last 8150s ever ... pics | LTG

LIFE TIME GEAR | FAVORITES #44 | CARRERA SLOT CAR RACETRACKS

since i am a child i love playing with CARRERA. my little sun has a track from the “GO!” series. a special ”DISNEY'S CAR” edition. but i think he is a bit to young. he prefers playing table football and with lego bricks. for me a CARRERA race track still means passion and emotion. i think the day will come when i race with my sun round per round through the living room ... but look at this perfect track in a box. isn't that a great idea? so awesome: and take a look at the details from other racetracks below. even skid marks are on the “road”. those tracks are built by american SLOT MODS: “Museum quality, hand crafted raceways for the ultimate garage, showroom, man cave or commercial interactive attraction.” unbelievable. check their site if you have an affection to raceway playing – it is an absolut must! fascinating! thx PeZi for the hint at spiegel.de where i found these blog pics. if you take a look at SLOTMODS.com you'll find countless pics from different racetracks and cars, informations about the builders and their clients. pics & vid | SLOT MODS

SCARTI-LAB DENIM | HAND TATTOOED LEATHER LABELS

i do know nothing about the italian brand SCARTI-LAB except what i found on their website ... and this looks quite nice. the call their label “band, not brand”. ok. check their look-book for S/S2012 “ELEGANCE MADE TO PROVOKE” – really well done. but mostly i like their customizations mainly the TATTOOED LABELs of their denim. each leather label looks differnet. that's what i call CUSTOMIZATION – one of a kind. pics | Scarti-Lab
