here are some quick pics showing the very first finished pair of the long awaited "Town and Country" custom boot by Gräfe & Spohr. As some of you may already know the custom options for these are numerous, only the last, the 360 degrees welt, the general shape and height of...
That's Aero's or Alexander's goat, right? It's straight veg tanned, so washing doesn't only take the clear aniline glazing off the top but also washes the tannage out of the leather. Vegetable tanning agents don't bond as permanently to skin fibres as chrome tanning salts do. Repeated washing of...
Up for sale is an ultra rare LVC x Aeroleather collaboration from the late 90s called "Thunderbird".
Aero made these by the end of the 90s/early 2000s for LVC. The original specs called for a heavily distressed look but due to high demand Aero also produced a non-aged...
The key features of the wallet:
- Entirely handcrafted Shell Cordovan wallet...a " one of"
- Super rare colour "Whiskey"
- All 11(!) panels are made from Shell. The best parts of two shells were used. That's roughly 200 € worth of material
- Main seam is handstitched using the two neddle and...
I have this on german Ebay but I will ship worldwide with insured trackable courier.
It's a lovely piece as you can see.
Thanks for watching!
Alpha jackets in Europe are most likely a license product of a German company which are assembled to high specs in China. Usually the fit and manufacturing quality is better than on (current) American made Alphas.
Same story with Schott...only difference is that the licensee is a manufacturer...
For some reason I always hesitated to post here but for 2014 I will give it a try:
Picture of Gancho and me in Hamburg, taken about 3 weeks ago:
- Alexander Leathers slim fit Arkansas, seal veg tanned goat
- Lee poison green western shirt
- JukeJive/ Göttmann brown...
I'm glad the pictures turned out so well. What can I say...great jacket, perfect fit and superb overall attire. Good you went with Will and Amanda's advice regarding the fit.
To all forumers: I've handled the jacket in person and it really is a stunner. Janet really has some...
recently had a chance to take a couple of pictures of the Service Belt Scott Willis created for Original Flightjackets, Germany.
The belt is based on a 50s Alpine mountain infantry belt which in return is based on an Austrian service belt from WW 1. So the pattern is quite old but I...
Carlos, I'm glad you've managed to find that link. Yes, OFJ still sell the boot and I believe they still have a couple of sizes in stock. Otherwise Russell have the spec sheet for this custom model so it can be re-ordered. It was not a limited edition by OFJ...
I wish I could say that I would start every day by choosing my "Belle de Jour" but in fact it's usually the combination of jacket and trousers that comes first after that all the other bits and pieces chime in automatically.
As you can see all of the boots shown are either brown...
I mainly use Elephant Leather Preserver, a fully synthetic fat which works great on all kinds of leathers (except cordovan). I never use a proper pigmented shoe polish...only neutral/clear shoe waxes for a light finish.
Yes, I am! They are very well made and clearly a step up...
Sorry for the title Folks!
No, this thread does not belong in the silver screen section because I just wanted to show you a couple of my current shoes/boots. Now that autumn is moving in, the last boatshoe and loafer days are gone and it's time to get out the more substantial stuff.
This is my...
Unfortunately I wasn't able to wear them around the shop. I just stepped into them for a moment and they felt very comfortable and soft due to the thick boot-like leather lining. The lining material Sascha requested is called Aquatan, a very soft and smooth, yet durable water...
