Burg & Schild is the answer to the constantly posed problem of what defines a both classic and traditional menswear store.

B&S is a unique retail store where male shoppers are treated to an array of brands and garments that make the man. Vintage pieces merge effortlessly with denim, workwear, militaria, and casual clothing. This is most certainly not a place for the trend led streetwear obsessive, this a conscious offering for the discerning male that seeks quality and heritage. Those who have a passion and appreciation of why a leather jacket feels and looks its unequivocal best after 10 years of constant subjection to daily wear, come rain or shine will feel right at home in this store. It's a bespoke service store that pays homage to yesteryear and tradition, you will most likely find yourself with a beer in hand as you banter with the owners Kay and Shane.

Kay Knipschild and Shane Brandenburg are two pioneers of clothing and men's fashion in Germany, with experience spanning 27 years between the two that encompasses G-Star, Fred Perry and Diesel, between the two of them they are equipped nicely to bring a new offering through older style to the market. Their personal passions lay in denim, classic cars, motorbikes, wartime style, americana, art and what it is to be a man. If Steve McQueen, were he alive would shop here, of that there is no doubt, and James Dean, well he would park his Spyder outside.

The brand list in the store is a who's who of supreme quality and classic tradition, one of the largest ranges of Red Wings seen in Germany sit next to denim from the likes of Levi's Vintage Clothing, Denim Demon, Edwin, Atelier La Durance and Studio D`Artisan while leather offerings from Aero Leathers and vintage specially sourced Biker Jackets are readily available. On a more casual note Obey, Rogues Gallery and Denham are extensively represented. There are also a plethora of accessories ranging from Randolph sunglasses, Davida helmets and Stetson hats.

The store opened its doors on Oct 13th 2007 to wild applause and positive reception as the beer flowed and the Jack sat oh so comfortably on ice and the party goers were treated to a vintage car show of some proportion and the store was stamped on the hearts and minds of the discerning German Gentleman. Since then Kay & Shane have never looked back, constantly adding new services to their repertoire. if you fancy watching classic movies with a cold beer and great company then hey ... you can get that too!

Suffice to say that this store is an original offering, its the tailor to the mans man and the alternative to mass market ubiquity, it stands out to help you stand out, so come by ... have a cup of coffee and make a new friend.
