VINTAGE WRECKED CAR MODELS | by JOHN FINDRAS

nice find on ETSY. JOHN FINDRA from south carolina is a retired business man “who decided to start making junkers” in 1-24th scale. after selling the first models on his wife's ETSY site he started an own shop named “CLASSICWRECKS”. JOHN wrecks and rusts the cars and put on extra details and paintings by hand. he loves working with a lot of different materials like plastic, wood, metal and wires. great idea, super results – unique! photos | JOHN FINDRAS

LTG FAVORITES #77 | GITMAN VINTAGE

just a short visit @ volls.de this morning. back from hiking last sunday it is really terrible at the office: a lot of work, no time for nothing. but after getting my hair cut refreshed this morning @ OLLI THE BARBER i went to volls.de because KLAUS has had a surprise for me. damn, what a surprise!!! i'll post later this week. beside he showed me some new stuff in a nutshell. i can tell you, the new GITMAN VINTAGE stuff is so nice. so i had to take this smart flannel shirt with me – perfect for colder winter days, so smooth, great color, old school pattern ... just awesome and there are much more great shirts. the GITMAN VINTAGE stuff isn't online yet, because it arrived yesterday afternoon. check out volls.de the next days for updates. pic | LTG

LEATHER WORK APRON | by MOORE & GILES

me, i do not have a use for an apron, but i like it, especially this leather version by MOORE & GILES. the 24.25“L x 30.75“H apron is available in two colors and i am sure it will age beautiful and gets a great patina by using it at daily work. both are available at the MOORE & GILES site each for $ 375.00. pics | MOORE & GILES

LTG FAVORITES #76 | RED MOON WALLETS

i think it is about 4 years ago i bought these 2 RED MOON LONG WALLETS @ volls.de . as you can see the brown one is rugged for years. the black one i just wore several times. for the next time the brown one can rest a while and the black one will be rugged in. japanese RED MOON stands for best quality. i never have had a damage and the wallet is getting better and better with every day of wear. highly priced but these wallets pay off! meanwhile it is difficult to get'em in europe. but i don't care – i own two! at RAKUTEN you can get the black one for a horrible price i never would have been payed ... crazy ... pics | LTG

CONGRATULATIONS TO BURG & SCHILD'S 5TH ANNIVERSARY

he guys very well done!
SHANE and KAY stay tuned for the next 5 years and many more! 
i am still sad that i couldn't join your party last saturday – saw the pics on facebook. 
looking great – as i expected.

now for me the circle with BURG & SCHILD is closed. after opening the shop in 2007 i did a story about B&S in germanys r'n'r magazine #1 DYNAMITE in spring 2008. i worked for the mag amongst others as the art director and one of the editors at this time. i met KAY at an event at B-74 and we talked about B&S – it was amazing. i went to the store for the first time in january 2009 when i joined the second floor show at 14oz. this year i joined the BEER, BIKES AND BURGER party and it was like meeting old friends although i saw SHANE & KAY the third time. now i got the 5th anniversary B&S boot the black ltd. RED WING LOGGER #2007. so the first circle is closed and we opened a second one ... 

more details about the boot and some other 5th anniversary stuff next week.

and beside, this was LIFE TIME GEAR's 1001 post. i forgot to do an anniversary post, ... but in this case, i think it doesn't matter. pics | LTG
