Margin Call und Million Dollar Trader

If you're interested in such things...

Anton Kreil from MillionDollarTraders, the Team-Leader, is such a cool guy.
It really is, as Lex VD said in the last part, a sign of weakness that those Losers showed when leaving their desks. Men are getting so weak!

BTW: The documentary starts getting really interesting when the old man leaves the team, so head up to part 8 or 9 I think...

Have a good evening.

PS: LSS hope youre getting well constantly.

Secret book-jewelery-box

with H. Alken-motif luckily.
Lovely isnt it?! Its on ebay if you wanna get it. I talked the seller down to 30$ incl. freight but I'm not going to get it since I fear it will be a lil stinky (see inside of the thing)...
But the idea of a book as a secret spot for money, rings, watches is superb!


These are the glasses worth a pair of undies;-)

taken from A bavarian clothier catalogue.
Thats how I roll!
Especially the first three. I love the green tie!!!

More of my obsession for old hunting pictures

Back in the days its been very different in social circles where I live.
My mother's generation and all the ones before were privileged and enjoyed a special social status. They were breeders and farmers (the word "Bauer" in GER, the word nowadays has a negative connotation as in ignorant, not open to the world, but back in the days it was seen as a 'successful businessman' is today) and they felt like Simba in King of the lions; "Everything you see is yours Simba."
People from the city were cheap and charly and envious of the status they enjoyed. The name is still very renowned in this area but less compared to back then and compared to all the new money and shinyness that raised.
Nontheless we still dont have to prove a thing to nobody. Thats really comfortable and gives a feeling of a certain consistence.
Im really proud of all the old funny stories et al.

Have a good one peers.

PS: Be sure I follow your blogs pals but am at home very little so commenting through the old Iphone is too complicated. I only use the app Blogger for the posts. Sunday I'll say sth to your posts;-)

Because of this tie I'm getting mobbed at work. They say it looks like my grandfathers. I see this as a compliment and am happy:-)

Featuring a diagonal-flusser-style shirt.

What would you do?

This shoe really needs first aid. I'm thinking metal caps at the front and maybe a new sole. I'm not sure about rubber since I always wore leather but in my winterboots. What do you think?
Extra rubber sole?
Extra leather sole?
I dunno yet...

Bar dress

Had a hard day?
Get some GT's in a good bar and look like a man, like he does.
Like I did today. Like LBF did and bulked at some blokes. Do you??

Von und zu lecker

My favorite TV series is called "Von und zu lecker". It refers to an aristocrats title like there are 'Gräfin Katherina von und zu Plettenberg' e.g..
I love local german-aritocrats and news/input concerning this topic, so this series is a cooking show mixed with MTV cribs (or castles) and a little style and historic elements. In short: un rêve pour moi.
In a recent show I found some nice things i will now show you.
First a perfect female ring-combo with the typical german and my favorite type of a signet ring: Green bloodstone (Blutjaspis) with litte red dots in it and yellow gold with an engraved crest.
Secondly a families patriarch with a, again typical german, dresscode.
Tracht is a type of fashion only germans can wear and I am very proud of this particular thing we dont copy from the savile row or Italy.

Ps: Cannot begin to post about their homes, am too enthusiastic and wouldnt have no freetime anymore. I love old buildings.

Henry Alken

Henry Alken is an artist I collect, or am beginning to collect.
He was a famous painter of the newspaper sports-section pictures in 17./18. century.
Those two are numbered antique prints I luckily found somewhere in my city quite cheap btw.
The bigger one is getting a custom frame now and then theyre going to live at my walls 4eva yaa:-)

fleur de lys

a little christian spirituality in my outfit.

Ps: I hate when my collar-peak (see right peak, from my pov) does that. Feels cheap, even though this is a bespoke shirt. Help?!

i love this suit mucho. Its the perfect banker stripe in supersoft flanell. The tie is by Hermes and one of my favorites!
My tassels allow me to be shoeless under my table from time to time which just rocks.
Have a good one

Ps: Cufflinks say: "I'm still a banker. Trust me!"

How do you want to live?

I do like this more than anything else.

Club Jacket

I just realized that I didnt yet show you my Ralph Lauren Club Jacket. The moths did unfortunately rip 2 small holes in one arm. You know me you know I like when stuff doesnt look new all the time. So, as I wear it very little, this was no break-down for me.
I combined it with my Nikolaus-gift, a Christian Dior PS and a local Schnitzler silk tie to lunch today. Yummy

Forest green

My new watch. Swatch. Couldnt get it in GER anymore so my GF brought it with her as a present from Paris.
Matte green or forest green as they call it was always my thing.
Check out my green stuff-its my favorite color;-)

Have a good weekend peers.
