CLASSIC US TIN CUP | by JACOB BROMWELL

found the cup i was ever searching for @ wonderful chicago based INDEPENDENCE store. the cup is made by JACOB BROMWELL. “made of tin. historically accurate and made in small batches without welding or soldering. made by machines built before electricity. made in michigan city, IN.” it's a pity that the shipping costs are so high, because INDEPENDENCE just ships with UPS. pic | Independence store

THE BARACUTA BOW TIE | XMAS PRESENT BY KLAUS VOLL c/o VOLLS.DE

yesterday after i finished my weekend run i entered on my way home volls.de to wish KLAUS and his staff IKRAM and BURCU a merry christmas. it was a bit funny, because they looked at me if i was an alien between all the well dressed clients in there. i was sweating so much and wearing my running clothes over all my beloved silver shining NIKE vest. KLAUS gave me the bow tie below as a gift and i was really surprised and happy about this special bow tie. i love bow ties ... and KLAUS, as i told you, i will wear it on christmas evening. great stuff: i like the different patterns of the bow tie and the strap – really nice! KLAUS' shop i left as fast as i could. and don't miss the great sale @ volls.de . pics | LTG
