RED WING SHOES | LAUNCH OF RED WING HERITAGE WOMEN'S COLLECTION ON 1ST of SEPTEMBER

This time there is something really new and special: RED WING SHOES launches its first contemporary women's collection. They launched some true RWS, classics which we know from the men's collections since years – this line is named “CORE”. You'll find Moc Toes, Iron Ranger and Engineer boots with lasts especially done for  women's feet – great idea, isn't it? For me as an RWS aficionado this is the line that makes the most sense to me. But for sure the ”LEGACY” line is really interesting too because of the extremely feminine and heritage look. These look like the very boots worn by women shaping and defining the 20th century, optimized for utmost comfort, wear ability, and durability. The ”MODERN” line is not my cup of coffee, but I am sure that a lot of ladies will like this reinterpretations of RWS most classic designs for women.

Come on and bring your girl, wife, lady, your sister, your daughter or grandma on the 1st of September 2016 to RED WING SHOE STORE FRANKFURT to check up the new RED WING HERITAGE WOMEN BOOTS and get a feeling for the specific women properties. Check the fit and walk some steps through the store. For sure the boots are online available too, 24/7 from 1st September on!

RED WING SHOE COMPANY started making boots for women in the midst of the Roaring Twenties. These women were pioneers of their era, breaking free from the constraints of long skirts and corsets in favor of short hair, pants, and boots. Red Wing Shoe Company responded to these social changes by creating a collection of ladies’ boots that were specifically suited to the needs and activities of independent women of the time, using the same purpose-built craftsmanship and care found in their men’s shoes.






I just wanna show you a short overview of the new styles. The next days I will present you more detailed informations and pictures of the different styles and lines.

“STAY BEARDED” SNAPBACK CAP | by THE OLD STREET BARBER CO

I hate this f***ing and senseless discussion about having a beard or not, and even more talking about  being a hipster because having a beard ... ??? A beard is just a beard! A sign of manliness, something you live with, something you have to care about ... a part of you. I just feel sorry for those, who wear a beard as a sign of fashion or trend. Me, I wear different beard forms since the early 90s, but never without since this time. Everything started with a typical „GRUNGE” beard and I asserted that my head looked a bit smaller with it – an optical decision for the first time. I tried a lot of beard styles from the mustache over a “Coop” to this full beard today, sometimes shorter, sometimes longer, sometimes fuller, sometimes straight. So my devise is: “STAY BEARDED” and show the world that your beard however it looks like is YOUR statement, YOUR statement of personality and not a f***ing fashion trend. I was so happy when I found this great snapback at the THE OLD STREET BARBER CO website. They do grooming products for bearded men. I will test these soon. The caps are limited editions. At the flat peak I am working on, because I don't like this style so much. It is high quality made, THE OLD STREET BARBER CO labeled inside and the 3D “STAY BEARDED” embroidery is awesome. And great they give me 2 pins with the caps that made my day already! pics | LTG

THE GREASER “MICK T-SHIRT” | THE SELVEDGE YARD x NICK THE TAILOR COLLABORATION

Yesterday I went to the customs to pick up my “Greaser Mick” collaboration t-shirt. Following TSY “THE SELVEDGE YARD” from the first days on I am interested in checking cool blogs, I was so happy to get this extraordinary t-shirt. What a cool motive for me as a great DISNEY and Rockabilly aficionado. The illustration was made by NICK THE TAILOR a Philadelphian artist and tattooist – very well done Nick! The shirt is high quality printed in Philadelphia on a 100% cotton American Apparel stuff made in the USA. Because of a good working networking I saw this great shirt the first time at DON SCHWEDEs Facebook site linked to his great blog “THE LAST DON” – thx. pics | LTG
