Sascha & Tobias
The 2 Minute Interview
Sascha and Tobias are Vater & Sohn. No, not as in father and son, but as in the heart and soul of the store Vater & Sohn in Hamburg Elmsbüttel, the only true gentleman’s shop. We met the two splendid gentlemen and sussed them out about all sorts of guy stuff: fashion faux pas, the meaning of life, movies that make you cry, penguins and lucky charms. The bottom line is that the two not only look like they just popped straight out of the latest Heritage Post issue, but they’re witty, honest, charming and super-duper nice, too. Are we allowed to say that? A manly man can. To all those sissies out there: this is how it’s done.

T: I solely admire my wife! She copes with me and gave birth to our lovely three children!Which artist (dead or alive) would you like to interview in the backseat of your car?
S: Slayer’s Jeff Hannemann
T: Oh, I wouldn’t mind driving through Hamburg in an old car and having a chat with Jan Fedder.A penguin wearing a Stetson Stratoliner comes in the shop and says:
S: Gosh darn it! This shop is even nicer than I thought! I’m just passing through and I need a new pair of jeans!
T: Can I get the TalonMade braided hatbands here?If we came to visit you, what would you cook for us?
S: Currently, I’d definitely make something vegetarian. I’m thinking couscous, dal and parsley salad. But if you’d prefer something with meat, I’d make roulades just like my grandmother used to.
T: Pulled Pork, cooked on a grill for 10 hours. Served in a bun with homemade coleslaw… Delicious!!
