What started off with an exclusive idea has yet advanced to a internationally renowned store for vintage fashion for men. What this concerns, Munich based GASOLINE ALLEY is the place to be for adventurers, bikers and fashion-conscious connoisseurs. Founder and shop owner Burkhard Pflug is committed to the „good stuff from the good times“. These are fine tweeds and twills, deep indigo blue raw denim or high quality leather items.
We asked Burkhard to show us his favorite Pike Brothers item?
“I told Fabian that I am not wearing denim anymore. After 20 years I´ve been just weary of denim pants. Some day, Fabian came by and gave me a 1937 Roamer Pant. I washed the pant in the washing machine (which is actually a no-go), dryed it, slipped into it and was just stoked of the deep color and extravagant cut. You know, I got no bow-legs, but wearing the pant looks like if you´ve been on your horse or bike recently. It´s this certain Cowboy-look I am speaking about. That´s exactly how a denim pant has to look like. By now I got five of these pants in my wardrobe (laughs). And I really enjoy selling these pants too. Actually that´s a very important point too: I would never sell something that I am not positive about.”
– worn 5 to 6 days a week – then turned to the left and washed at 40 degrees
– bleached over a long time and got holes in the right place
– turn up repaired in its own Hemming Service with original thread – sewn to the upper edge
– these pants were sailing, motorcycling, clay pigeon shooting and every week in the washing machine
Enjoy the pics!
