Few days ago Railcar Fine Goods announced that they would soon release a must have product. Not a shirt, nor jeans but something special. The product indeed proved to be special. A special denim apron made of 12oz dark indigo blue line Selvedge denim accompanied by 6oz leather straps and adjustable hardware. The apron is pretty impressive. Based on classic Type 3 jean jacket, it has a unique look but still does not steer away from the practicality, making it a perfect companion for wood work, metal work, cooking or cleaning. The way I see it, this would make a great apron for the summer barbecue season. The apron is available in limited numbers from Railcar Fine Goods for a very reasonable price of 128 USD. Get yours!
A fine watch is an investment that will last from one generation to another but just like any fine piece of machinery a watch needs maintenance to ensure the timepiece remains the same. Naturally accidents happen and although modern watches are made to last, there are precaution one should take to keep the watches ticking. The latest episode of IWC’s “The Man’s Guide to Buying a Watch” features some very good tips on how to maintain one’s watch and ensure your timepiece lasts so that your kids can wear it.
Since I got my watch back a week ago I have been looking into getting a new watch strap for my Omega Géneve. Big thanks to everyone who contributed on our Facebook Page.
Got my Omega Genéve back, which is nice. This whom have been following our adventures would remember that the watch landed rather rough resulting in breaking of the watch plexiglass crystal as well as the date plate which was the biggest concern. The 1972 Omega Genéve is a family heirloom, and has probably more sentimental than monetary value, so I do not mind spending few bucks to get it fixed.
Ever wondered how’s a day like at a workshop producing premium leather goods? Tanner Goods gives everyone a sneak peek into their daily life through a timelapse filmed across 2 days at their Leftbank Workshop. Pretty awesome video, hoping to see another one from a denim workshop. Denim guys reading this, take note. (hint, hint…)
Last belt I bought was my signature Gucci which I bought from Gucci store in Copenhagen back in 2010. 2 years have passed since then and I wore the let literally each and every day for the past years. The belt has been worn and torn but have kept my pants up in style. However the torn part is a concern, considering I do need my belt so it was about time to buy a new belt.
I like the works of Globe-Trotter. I have shared video and additional information on the detail that goes into production of these luggage. Needless to say, I appreciate the attention that goes into every single detail. The latest collection from the brand does not lack in details either, especially as it’s inspired by the James Bond and the upcoming Skyfall movie.
As hinted in our last post, we’ve been in touch with a new brand that focuses on sturdy leather goods. This brand is Kawatako, made in Japan.
Few days ago I posted a briefcase themed teaser article titled “What’s in your briefcase?” Today I’m picking up from where I left off. Introductions done, so let’s get down to business.
I’ve picked up a new hobby in vintage and timepieces of which I shared my Tissot and Omega watches already some time back. But what would any collection (even a small one) be without a pocket watch.Yet, a pocket watch. Timepiece that preceded the now popular wrist watch. The practicality of wrist watch slowly but surely lead to reduction of pocket watches in the market. Bargue would argue that a good pocket watch still has that style value unmatched by modern watches. Or at least most of them. Especially when it comes to wearing a three piece suit.
