TELLASON | MEET ARTIST TODD BLUBAUGH @ SELVEDGE RUN, BERLIN 4TH-6TH JULY PRESENTING TELLASON'S NEW “BLUBAUGH” JEAN & BOOK SIGNING

And if you don't know Todd it's time to know him. And what's about the TELLASON connection? Okay, Todd Blubaugh got a close friend to Pete Searson and Tony Patella, the guys behind this great brand. This is more than 5 years ago. Todd was born and raised in McPherson, Kansas. His earliest interests were in art and motorbikes and since the age of 12, Todd has been pursuing these two passions. He currently works in film, writes, shoots, and pursues collaborations with his roommates at The Chun, a motorcycle warehouse and art space in Los Angeles. “TOO FAR GONE” is his personal account of a cross-country journey taken on his hand-built motorbike “The Red Head” after his parents’ sudden death some days before his expected road trip departure. So the open road becomes a source of artistic inspiration, psychological freedom, and spiritual healing. He spent six months on the road during his transcontinental trip. Todd has a clear vision vision about the gear that helps him on his journey – this is the point when TELLASON came into play. Pete and Tony let Todd create the new TELLASON jean “THE BLUBAUGH” from top to bottom. Their 16.5 oz. denim is their toughest so it was an automatic choice for them to use for “THE BLUBAUGH”. It has a mid-rise slim straight fit that also comes in these lengths: 30", 32", and 34". All jeans sold are raw, unwashed and unworn. Cut and sewn in San Francisco, Calif.

Todd Blubaugh will be in Berlin for the Selvedge Run 4th – 6th July 2017. Meet him @ the booth of  TELLASON during the show (for trade visitors only) and get your personal copy of his latest book “TOO FAR GONE”. There will also a book signing event @ Burg & Schild Store on 5th July starting 18:30. For more details see www.amtraq.com.

Customized iconic Red Wing #877. Found – where else – on a Japanese Twitter Account (MaH @MaH53137643). I like this kind of customizing with that fat soles and higher heels a lot. But beside soles and heels there is another fine custom thing that looks great and is very practical at these 8-inch Classic Moc: speed hooks! What a perfect #877 ... pics | MaH @MaH53137643

RED WING HERITAGE ICONIC STYLE #8131 | VINTAGE versus NEW

One of my absolute Red Wing favorites is the iconic Moc Toe style #8131. Before handing out my brother his new oro-russet Moc Toe, I had to take some shots – I like the contrast so much. Maybe you wanna check out the “vintage versus new” photos. My rugged boot is from the 90s and when you check the pictures you can't find many differences compared to the actual #8131. Obviously there is an embossed Red Wing Shoes logo on the outsides of the vintage #8131, while the new boot features the characteristic label at the tongue with a lot of information about the boot. All Red Wing Boots and Shoes have this label since years. The inseams of the heels are a bit different. That's all. Never change a working system or a good working product! Thanks to the guys from Red Wing, Minnesota! Come and get your #8131 at the oldest Red Wing Shoe Store outside the USA in Frankfurt, est. 1977, in store or online www.redwingfrankfurt.com. pics | LTG

TELLASON, ORCIVAL AND JOHNSON MOTORS INC @ WWW.B74.DE

Last week www.b74.de did the first newsletter after the launch of their new online shop just a few days ago. When talking to the owner and founder of this great concept store Kami, the response was really good. So this weekend the next newsletter went out. After ”ALL IN BLACK” now a triple color combination is the motto: red, white and blue. This is not a statement “pro USA”, the B74 crew just likes this color combination of the back in stock Orcival Marine Shirt, the 16.5 oz Tellason Coverall Jacket and the Johnson Motors Bandana. pics | LTG & www.b74.de
