SOCKS THAT DON'T SUCK | ANONYMOUS ISM

Guys, it's getting winter here in middle Germany. No more Oxfords without socks. Time to sock up with socks that don't suck. Beside my Red Wing Shoes socks and CHUPS I always wear in all my boots from Alden over Rocky Heritage Boots to White's these four pairs of ANONYMOUS ISM are the first I'll try. The Anchor Socks are not really made for extreme cold conditions but perfect for fall. The camouflage ones are really thick and warm – and so cozy! The unique socks of ANONYMOUS ISM are woven on looms from the 1970s in a Japanese manufacture. Made from natural materials and thick yarns the socks are produced in distinct colors and peerless patterns. By built of the looms and use of quality yarns the efficiency of the machinery is limited to less than 50 pairs of these thick and durable socks per day! Okay ... whatever, I love the designs. Got my socks from volls.de. pics | LTG

iPhone 6S LEATHER SLEEVE BY ALEXANDER VON BRONEWSKI MANUFAKTUR

I am really pissed that APPLE changes always the sizes of phones when they develop new models. Cases, sleeves and car holder must be updated. So I am really happy to get a new sleeve for my 6S by my buddy ALEXANDER VON BRONEWSKI because he normally doesn't do phone sleeves anymore. Thx AvB for this special thing! The 5S sleeve will be kept in the family for sure. It is so nice to see these tan cognac colored cowhide sleeves aging. Check the pics to compare the new sleeve to the old one. pics | LTG

B74 – SELECTED GOODS, FRANKFURT, GERMANY, CELEBRATED 7TH ANNIVERSARY

Yesterday I joined the 7th anniversary of B74-SELECTED GOODS. It was a must for me to visit Kami, the owner of this great shop, and his wife Iris. And it was a very fine but quite come together of friends after this horrible night before in Paris Friday 13th. It was obvious that something terrible happened ... and we were talking about a lot. Me I wasn't in the mood to do a lot of photos, but I did some ... it was dark ... so excuse me for the not so good quality at all. It was great to meet Frank Schulte in Person for the first time, the man behind the great Top Hatter blog. And if you have the possibility to visit and join B74 and its Sample & Vintage Sale you should do that the upcoming Saturday 21st of November: there are a lot of great offers in gear, accessories and vintage furniture, bicycles and so on. Great! pics | LTG
