» THE AESTHETICS FOR THE SENSES - THE QUALITY FOR THE RATIO «
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Even then, it all started with a consistent counter to fashion when one of the founders outgrew his unfashionable, timeless G-1 Flight Jacket, which he had long spared himself at 16, and was looking for an equivalent replacement.
„ It was exciting that decades later, the jacket still looked the same and was still "in style." So it made sense that others might also tick like him, because consistent things with an interesting story always fascinated him.“
As a result, he ordered not just one, but 10 pieces, all but one of which he sold again online. This then led to the creation of an online store for aviator jackets. Classic Kontor was the logical evolutionary step of the original flight jacket store. Because around the flight jackets many other rare products grouped themselves peu à peu, so that this hat of the flight jackets became too small.
The second in the group was for a long time in the distribution of luxury cosmetics and fashion. One day, the brothers sat together at a family party and thought about how they could develop the company together with their shared philosophy and experience. That was in 2012. Since then, the two have formed a dual leadership team at Classic Kontor and work daily with the entire team to realize their shared visions step by step.
WHAT IS BEHIND THE NAME CLASSIC KONTOR
We associate Kontor with the traditional business of Hanseatic merchants and goods from all over the world. We like the solid merchant tradition, where even the handshake still carries weight. We also have these long-standing, solid connections that were sealed with a handshake. Since the very beginning, our Kontor has been dealing with special things from Asia, North America and South America, as well as specialties from the regions of Europe. When we discover something interesting, we look into it more closely and also see it directly on site to really understand and internalize the subject. No matter if in Korea, USA, France, Scotland or even here on site.
The decisive factor is the spark that jumps over when we get to grips with a subject. This is how the product range has built up almost independently over the years. Either the products cross our path all by themselves and simply convince us or we ourselves are looking for something specific and research until we have found in our opinion the best or most authentic available product for this purpose. So over time, in addition to clothing, accessories and lifestyle products have found their way into our assortment, which continues to grow steadily.
are pithy and willing to be combined. They are functional without compromising on design. The aesthetics for the senses - the quality for the ratio.
The freedom to combine all products from the range makes it exciting and the look never boring. In the end, your own personality brings the style to life. We love watching each customer create their own unique look through the individual combination of our products. Making that possible is the foundation of our product line.
If you take a look at our brand portfolio, you will quickly realize that we are not interested in fast-moving trends or "fashion" in the conventional sense, but rather present products from smaller brands and manufacturers to a special degree. The longevity and sustainability of the products is in the foreground. From the Kaweco fountain pen to the Red Wing boat. Everything can be repaired and the value and reliability is simply fun in daily use.
It is the fascination of the classics. In our store in Erkelenz, this individual mix of goods is presented and celebrated in a fitting ambience.
