"THE GLOBE - AUTHENTIC & ORIGINAL SINCE 1969"
The Globe is located in a historic building from the 15th century, the oldest stone building in Arnhem.
When I entered the store I bumped into the owner Harry Wonder, his eyes filled with passion for authentic brands. I asked him when and how he started the business. He told me that he never finished school, and learned by doing. He sets himself a goal of learning 3 new things a day and even now this is his motto. Before he started the Globe he was a vintage dealer, but then in Italy he saw for the very first time a brand called Stone Island and that was 30 years ago. Harry was the very first dealer of Stone Island in the Netherlands. Bringing the brand to Holland changed his whole world. He changed his way of working from vintage dealer into a store concept with authentic and original brands not just casuals but also outdoor gear. Even now you see still both influences, brands like Pendleton, Filson, Lee 101, Grenson going hand in hand with brands like Fjallraven and Patagonia.
