The Heritage Post Issue #1

Earlier this year Germany’s Uwe van Afferden launched their new magazine, The Heritage Post (Magazin für Herrenkultur), dedicated to the essence of craft and heritagewear.

The Heritage Post features a manifestation of everything within the scope of “heritage”. The magazine is a blend of vintage style and authentic, timeless products that span different lifestyle sub-categories. From the hand-drawn front cover to the considered breakdown of products, the publication oozes authenticity.

Showcasing everything from denim to leather works, interior design and fine timepieces, the lifestyle glossy focuses on brands with real narrative, passion, quality and detail. Throughout the beautifully curated pages of their first issue you will discover an elegant array of some of Japan’s most legendary denim brands like Momotaro, as well as some of America and Europe’s more contemporary brands like Mister Freedom and Northern Denim House.

The text is in German, but the excellent narrative of visuals and presentation of products ensures you can enjoy the magazine despite the language barrier. Nonetheless, this is definitely something for all our German friends out there.
