PETER FIELDS X LIFE TIME GEAR

right before starting in my summer holidays some stuff from PETER FIELDS, berlin, reached me. amongst some other DEUS pieces i got 2 shirts and a LECHATVIVI – AHOI NATURE bracelet. the quality of the DEUS shirt that are made in USA is absolutely perfect. i like the DEUS stuff a lot and it is still difficult to get this stuff here in germany. the LECHATVIVI bracelet with its small anchor and the 2 massiv “Cs” is pure understatement: smart but cool – love it. thx ANIE c/o PETER FIELDS for fast shipping! pics | LTG








RED WING SHOES STYLE # 1907 | NEWS FROM THE RWS HERITAGE CENTRAL

yeah some news from the RED WING SHOES HERITAGE EUROPE CENTRAL. the #1907 is introduced in europe. i am sure that i owend this boot years before. so it is a comeback if i remember correctly. hm. okay, this is what RWS says about the #1907: “RED WING HERITAGE is announcing the arrival of one of north america’s most popular boot styles the 1907 to the european market. available now in RED WING SHOE STORE AMSTERDAM & the other RED WING SHOE STORES later this year the 1907 is modeled after the original Moc Toe work boot styles that made RED WING famous. the rough & rough leather used to build the 1907 is distressed pull-up leather with an antiqued appearance. the norwegian welt construction applies a double stitch that not only gives the boot a distinctive appeal but also makes the 1907 highly durable and functional. finished off with rawhide laces a traction tred outsole and triple stitch quality,  the 1907 is built to the same standards which make Red Wing the choice of the american worker.” a really nice classic boot. pics | RED WING HERITAGE

LIFE TIME GEAR | FROM THE ARCHIVES | MY LAST GIG AS A DRUMMER

no time for making new photos to post or searching the web. so i am checking my archives for some queer shots. these pics are from my last gig i ever did in 2007. i played the drums for nearly 30 years. 12 years i did music as a half professional in a dance combo in the 80s and 90s. but beside i always did music for my own in several bands till 2007. but believe me – i never got so much fun and exciting moments with music than i had with my dance combo – rock'n'roll! in 2007 i quitted playing the drums, because there wasn't no time anymore: the family, too much to work, too much sports and the music i did with the band wasn't my cup of tea – too complicated, too constructed, too cross over. but i am still always with music, all day long. after this gig i gave all my equipment to our singer as a present. and funny: OLLI THE BARBER was singing two years in our band named ARM STRONG. hm, got some more tattoos, glasses, a bigger beard and wrinkles the last 5 years – it seems i'm getting older. pics | thomas goos

LIFE TIME GEAR | FAVORITES #67 | THE B-74 RING

since more than one year i own this great B-74 ring – it's time to post now. KAMI owner of the B-74 and RED WING STORE FRANKFURT let made it for me and i love it, at most in combination with my GERMAN MARINE ANCHOR and the WERKSTATT MUENCHEN rings – great trio. it's a heavy piece with engraved B-74 · SELECTED GOODS · FRANKFURT. and it is great to know that just a few B-74 rings exist. pics | LTG || graphic | B-74

LIFE TIME GEAR BOOT & SHOE COLLECTION | 13 | VINTAGE 2-TONE SEARS WORKBOOTS BY DAVID VARNER


this is the newest but one of the oldest pieces of my collection. and the absolute best is that i got this awesome and rare two-tone SEARS boots from the 70s as a present from LIFE TIME GEAR blog fan DAVID VARNER. he wrote me a mail that the boots were on their way to germany as present because they didn't fit him and he thought i would be happy to get them: YES I AM!!! damn, what a surprise i was really touched by the kind words DAVID wrote me. he is a great boot lover too and has a huge collection of work and hiking boots – a portrait will follow soon. DAVID is a 40 year-old locomotive engineer – on the picture aboard AMTRAK's 40TH ANNIVERSARY TRAIN – and a former mensa member. prior working for the railroad he was employed in another traditional blue-collar job (automotive assembly-line worker) where the only boots that mattered were RED WINGS. he was always been driven by quality, good-design, lasting craftsmanship and value. these are some of the things LIFE TIME GEAR speaks about! thanks agin DAVID. still unbelievable. and DAVID the fit is perfect and i think i won't customize them. they are great as they are. pics | LTG
