NEKO x LIFE TIME GEAR | A PARCEL FROM JAPAN

again: living in a small word. two weeks ago another package from japan arrived. send by my friend NEKO, my personal “FREE & EASY” dealer. this friendship is a result of an ebay deal not from blogging. great. just because of NEKO i knew that F&E did 2 new special issues: COWBOY & INDIAN and WILD & GENTLE COUNTRY CLUB. she send them with my F&E april and may issues. and beside the obligatory very informative newsletter NEKO send me a present and made me a really big surprise: from the phantastic RUGGED FACTORY she gave me a HAV-A-HANK bandana. thank you so much for this! a great idea – i will use it for sure. now i am little bit ashamed that i did not open the parcel 2 weeks ago when it arrived. but you must know, when i got my magazines from japan i need some time. because after holding the mags in my hand the next hours are gone. me i am gone ... not reachable for anyone, just looking and reading. reading? ok, some headlines are written in english, but: pics say often more than words ... so i go, i am gone ................ pics | LTG

RON WELLDON x LIFE TIME GEAR | LIVING IN A SMALL WORLD

this is something straight from the heart! this something about why doing a blog is often so great!

on the 5th of april 2011 i did a post about the upcoming bike film “CLOSER TO THE EDGE”, a documentary about the TOURIST TROPHY on the ISLE OF MAN. my buddy VOLKER WIEGMANN from great blog  www.vintagepanerai.com send this post to his friend RON because he lives on the ISLE OF MAN. RON isn't only a great PANERAI fan but also very interested in boots, denim and all the other things we love. so he is a visitor of LIFE TIME GEAR from this day on. and what a surprise he send me an awesome ISLE OF MAN TT 2011 100 anniversary shirt. we got in contact and i wanted to do a post about RON and the little story we had together, but then something worst happend: i lost all my email data and much more in big computer crash. about this the post got forgoten – shame about me! but this year we met again @ the RED WING OWNERS CLUB site on FACEBOOK and so i contacted OLVER WENKEL another buddy of RON, VOLKER and me and i asked him meeky if he could ask RON for resending me the mail stuff from 2011, and he did. there wasn't any problem. and now the post is written ... here the trailer of CLOSER TO THE EDGE and some great pics done by RON. and RON, what's about your boot collection? send me some pics to do a nice portrait of you and your boots – you're welcome! pics | RON WELLDON, LTG _ vid | cinemanx

LIFE TIME GEAR'S VANS iPHONE COVER

my beloved BUTTERO iphone sleeve was stressed the last time and i will give it a break. so i put my pocket office into my new VANS iPHONE cover which just arrived today from japan. this piece has a funny grip – like a VANS. hard to find. everywhere sold out. if you want one try it on ebay. bad pics | LTG

“LOOK AT THE SHOES” NECKLACE

nice discovery by my wife: “hey, that's something for you ” she said to me some weeks ago in a design shop at frankfurt. sure, yes it was! it is made of black lightweight plexiglas and about 10 cm long and the arrow is about 6 cm wide. but this necklace is more a joke and a good decoration for some nice boot photos than an accessories to wear. bad pics | LTG
