UNDEROOS | THE RETURN OF SUPERHEROES UNDERWEAR

found this crazy stuff today during a short coffee break. first thoughts: cool, funny idea. but i did not now that UNDEROOS has had cult status in the US. average american little kids wore during the 1970s and late 1980s for sure UNDEROOS with characters from MARVEL, DC HEROES and STAR WARS. now, brand new, UNDEROOS is back. not for kids but for adults ... great. i do not know anything about the quality, maybe it is made in china or somewhere fucking else, but i think it works so good. check  HOTTOPPICS site for more hero underwear – there is even some hero stuff for your wife ... pics | © HOTTOPPIC

THE IRON HEART HAIRLINE DUCK WESTERN SHIRT & THE HICKORY STRIPE WORK SHIRT

i just own 3 IRON HEART shirts and i love these so much. after some stiffness when wearing the 11 and 12oz shirts the first times, they got smoother and smoother and meanwhile i am so satisfied of best fit and a great comfort feeling. and i think, that these will never be broken down – life time gear – what a great quality. the care isn't a problem: cold wash, inside out and taking at once out of the wash machine when ready you don't even need to iron it. no shrinking, nothing. these shirts are made in japan and have a lot of nice details you can check up in the photos. in fall i wore the shirts as a jacket, sometimes combined with a vest depending on the weather conditions. here i combined the shirts with deadstock indigo duck canvas JACK/KNIFE hunting vest and a JOE McCOy bandana. the shirts and the bandana are available @ volls.de and the vest is from B-74, frankfurt, germanypics | LTG

MASUNAGA | OPTICAL FRAMES MADE IN JAPAN SINCE 1905 @ KLAR

when i visited AKRAM founder and owner of KLAR in darmstadt, germany, last week he showed me these nice frames. AKRAM told me that he sells MASUNAGA since 2012 – hm, i did not know this ... anyway, now i took notice of this wonderful classic frames which must be made with such a passion and precision – so nice to touch and put it on the nose. great. the look? perfect old school, timeless. MASUNAGA was founded in 1905 by GOZAEMON MASUNAGA in FUKUI, JAPAN where 97% of optical frames were once made. he wanted to produce glasses that are better than the rest of the country. he did: from this time on till today each piece of MASUNAGA eyewear is made by hand. the glasses are made with the finest materials including silver accents and polished japanese acetate.  MASUNAGA  glasses are well known for their details. i am still absolutely hooked by this wonderful simple, classic but modern look. check their website and the actual collections, the optical ones as well as the sunglasses and learn more infos about the brand. and for sure a MASUNAGA will be my next frame. pics | LTG
