TZ Wallet Sneak Peak

Trendzeta, TZ wallet, Party Potte

Well, my friends Eric, Jan and I were annoyed of our too big wallets lately. Whenever we go out, we leave our 3cm thick wallet at home and just take some money, a bank card and a passport or ID with us.
Two weeks ago I lost 10€ , because the bank note was by itself in my trouser pocket, together with my phone. Accidentally, I must have pulled out my phone TOGETHER with the 10€ note and lost it. This made us thinking about a TZ wallet...

NOW, this wont happen anymore. We have worked on 2 versions of a simple, party-night-capable wallet which suits our needs.

The one below is actually version nr.2! It is a prototype. Color and inscription are not final yet. We also still work on better stitching with other thread colors.

The credit as well as the ID card fit perfectly under the middle leather piece together with plenty bank notes (enough for one night out).

Some more pictures, as well of version nr.1, are about to come. Any thoughts, criticism or comments?

Qualities of PSD include supernatural powers of imagination and an overwhelming desire to constantly make the world more beautiful. PSD affects people from different walks of life. In fact, there is a high probability that you have PSD.”

The shelter post

I just read a post from Markus Reuter at bettertastethansorry. It is about building and making stuff by yourself with your hands, a hammer and a saw.

Next to bbb desk project he mentioned in this post, I also liked the video about Lloyd Kahn. Read the article yourself here: bettertastethansorry- shelter post


TZ likes Product Design - Kleiderstiele

Johanna Dehio  is a Berlin based designer who made the “Kleiderstiele,” or clothing-sticks in English.

It is basically a coat rack. A broomstick-like to hold garments.

It is simple design takin to the next level. The clothing-sticks lean against the wall at an angle that makes them just stable.

This function makes them very flexible and adjustable to space and habits.

I'm sure I share the passion for this product with my brother. How about you? Would you put your jacket on this wardrobe-like clothing stick?

Tetris Bookshelf

You know my brothers skills from the DIY Drawer Cabinet.
Now, he has send me a new inspiration he got from the web:

The TETRIS Bookshelf!

Basically, each shelf segment is autonomous and you can postition it just as simple as in the game Tetris. You can basically change the shape of your shelf daily. How call is that?!?! I mean nobody would really change it daily, but occasionally if the need for change exists!

Where did you see this Steffen?

Anyway, below are some pictures!

TZ @ Tommy Hilfiger & GQ Store Event

Steve McQueenWhat happens if Tommy Hilfiger and GQ join for a collaboration?

Right, something unique, specially made for MAN: The Chambray-Shirt, an all-time-favorite.

The shirts cut and fitting was inspired by the icon Steve McQueen and produced exclusively in a limited edition for GQ.
Of course, the shirt has the special TH touch: Unique fitting, striking seams, two front pockets and shoulder epaulets.
The shirt is with 120€ pricy, therefore not for every student like me affordable but certainly an investment.

However, yesterday the Shirt was released in Berlin at an exclusive Store Event and I was there. I took some pictures to share. I was really impressed by the store and its decoration. There was the half of an old green truck right in the entrance area. From one side it looked like a normal car, and on the other was a rack with shirts and polos. They also offered some nice cold Miller beer, water, juices and Hennessy Cognac as a refreshment. Delicious. Some VIP's were around as well. Nice Event and will surely visit the store again.

Enjoy the pictures!

PS: There was no press around, just one photographer from TH or GQ. So see this post as a sneak peak ;)

Leather - The Fold

The Fold, Leffot property

“You got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em”.
...a wise gamler once said.
I dont happen to gamble that often, still my friend Eric and I think this is pretty cool (BTW he send me the link of this cool thing). We think of going to Kreuzberg this week to buy some leather and make our own folds.

I happen to have some 3mm marking stamps from the bay. So we could even personalize the folds and make them real TZ. Our version will be cheaper than 95 bucks tho.

What do you think of the fold? Again what gets me is the timeless simplicity.

Off topic

Can you imagine Oliver Pocher, Günther Jauch or Reinhold Beckmann with a star like Justin Timberlake performing a medley of rap songs in German TV?
No? Ok then we share the same opinion. It's just not gonna happen. Oliver Pocher made some songs with Bushido and others tho, but I just dont see him with an American music star.

Because we Germans are not going to see this happening, watch this Jimmy Fallon Show.

Justin, The Roots and Mr. Fallen on stage with a rap medley!!
Enjoy and be jealous of a real American late night show.
