Berlin Meets Brazil
Rob and Rich timed their annual buying trip to Berlin impeccably, landing slap bang in the midst of World Cup fever. The show they were there for had been transformed into a Brazilian favela, then on the Tuesday evening they watched Germany trounce Brazil in the company of the Edwin boys while the city around them erupted.
World Cup to one side, they got down to the serious business of buying menswear SS15. Orders went in the book for Our Legacy, Merz b Schwanen and Filson. They designed a new Hambledon exclusive shoe with Trickers, and found a very cool old/new sportswear brand.
Back to the football and they were on a hunt to find a bar to watch Holland vs Argentina when they spotted a group of Japanese guys outside a vintage store. A good sign they thought, so they went to explore and found Fein und Ripp, the highlight of Rob's trip. Here Marlon kindly provided lager and strudels while they sifted through the most amazing collection of vintage workwear and accessories, lots of it in orginal 1940s packaging. A must visit if in Berlin, just as much so as Mr Wong's where they rounded off their trip with really good noodles.
