LTG CAP & HAT COLLECTION | 04 | THE SUMMER STRAW BOWLER BY SCHMITTHUT

i got this wonderful stray BOWLER this summer. especially hand made for me by hat maker and artisan SUSANNE SCHMITT c/o SCHMITTHUT, darmstadt, germany. what a wonderful work. best fit as usual when i get a SCHMITTHUT hat and an awesome straw structure. i like the classic bowler type combined with this normally known material for other hat types like pork pie, fedora or trilby. and always exciting to watch the photos of the process how my hats were made – please take a closer look. pics | SCHMITTHUT & LTG

RECYCLED DENIM iPhone 4 & 4S CASE | DARK DEEP BLUE

just 4 months in gentle use, this shitty orange SGP CASE is loosing its first skin and getting ugly – not looking good and rugged but unsightly. by chance i found this quite nice and heavy duty looking iPhone case made of recycled denim. and unbelievable: it costs just 25,- €. you will find it directly at the IKKU® online store or @ amazon. here some facts: made of recycled denim, polycarbonate construction, 20% recycled denim, 80% organic cotton, easy snap-on attachment, durable hard-shell construction with a soft feel, four-corner coverage, contoured skinny fit, precision cut-outs provide quick and easy access to docking connection and other device features, zero-waste design. the denim is raw, unwashed. love it right now, just 2 hours in use. you can get some other denim and canvas colors. a case for iPhone 5 isn't available yet. pics | LTG

NOW ONLINE: PANCHO AND LEFTY | THE SHOP FORMERLY KNOWN AS MR. MUDD AND MR. GOLD

some times ago i wondered because i could not find swedish MR. MUDD AND MR. GOLD online shop any more. the site was gone. yesterday i found PANCHO AND LEFTY. ah, okay, this is the shop “formerly known as MR. MUDD AND MR. GOLD”. i think this will be a good thing! there you do not find all those well known heritage and vintage brands from all the shops over europe but some fresh ones from japan. hard to get brands outside japan and i think for some guys unknown. important: no customs must be paid for us europeans when buying KAPITAL, WAREHOUSE COMPANY or CROSSED ARROWS stuff. some product sites are empty and miss the stuff, but i think the launch of PAL was just some days ago. and i hope they will offer their prices not only in swedish kronen in future – US$ and euros are missing. check it: panchoandlefty.se pics | Pancho and Lefty
