LTG BOOT & SHOE COLLECTION | 26 | VIBERG SERVICE BOOT 1950 WITH VIBRAM 4014 WHITE CRISTY SOLE

2 months ago i did a post about my VIBERG SERVICE BOOT 1950 in black with a DAINITE SOLE. todays #26 boot of my collection is the same boot just brown colored with another sole, the WHITE CRISTY VIBRAM 4014. as the pics show, i did not wear this boot so often. i prefer the black SERVICE BOOT with its DAINITE SOLE much more. i think this sole fits the look of the boot much better. the #4014 is comfortable but it looks like a contemporary compromise to me. when i wear this boot sometimes i think if i wear a hybrid between a RED WING BOOT and a VIBERG. for sure this VIBERG SERVICE BOOT is a really perfect and best made boot but not my favorite one. if it might be yours, you can get it @ volls.de.  pics | LTG

VINTAGE LEVI'S RED JEANS FOUND | PART II “HOLDEN”

this is the second pair of LEVI'S RED denim i found in my box. the “HOLDEN” must be from 2003 or earlier. it has a wide carpenter fit, a classic workpant with no backriser and a high hem. straight leg, bearing two unequal slash pockets and knife pocket on the left side leg, black sew-on suspender buttons and uneven belt loops. this HOLDEN is made from 10oz sulphur-dyed twill fabric which gives this special light blue color and worn out look. unfortunately the jeans got marks from storage – i do not know how this could happen. found the same HOLDEN but brand new in japan for 340 US $. it is apitty that it got a bit too small ... pics | LTG

i was searching for one of my vintage western shirts. so some days ago i was checking up one of some big ZARGES storage boxes in the basement, where i have a lot of clothes parked. stuff i won't wear at the moment or i am just collecting like vintage western shirts and boots, work boots, denim, t-shirts ... so i found 2 more than 10 years old LEVI'S RED jeans. i was so surprised how detailed these where made. today i will show you this very rare “BILLY BOB”. no selvedge, classic straight leg, a lot of zigzag stitched details, suspender buttons, ... tomorrow i will continue with my LEVIS'S RED “THE HOLDEN”. maybe i will find the original suspenders till tomorrow ... and damn, LEVI'S RED isn't payable today. check the prices @ LNCC ... unbelievable, there isn't a pant under 650 €. pics | LTG
