The Top Ten Best Denim Brands

The last time I did a top ten article, I wrote about leather jackets and that list was the finale of a three part series discussing leather jackets. The first article talked about why leather jackets are awesome and what to look for in a good one. With jeans, I feel this is unnecessary. Leather… Continue reading The Top Ten Best Denim Brands

Ben Viapiana is one of my favorite denim makers. In fact, he is one of my favorite makers period.

Grease Point Workwear Dark Olive Work Jeans Review

There are few things I love more than one man brands. One of the most appealing aspects of the heritage menswear world to me is the love and energy that passionate people put into the clothing that they make and to my mind, nothing exemplifies this more than a good one man brand. As such,… Continue reading Grease Point Workwear Dark Olive Work Jeans Review

Why do People Like Double Denim?

I do not like double denim. I wish I did, though. I wish I loved Canadian tuxedos. It would make my life a lot easier. Being a part of the raw denim/heritage menswear community means that I am constantly surrounded by people wearing indigo suits. It very often feels weird to be such an odd… Continue reading Why do People Like Double Denim?

Samurai 15oz Heavy Chino Pants Review

As incredible as denim is, it is far from the only pair of trousers that a guy needs. With chinos being far less common than denim in this subculture, finding a great pair that gets fit, fabric, and details all correct is far more difficult than it is with denim.

The Denim Hound x Kojima Genes x SF Bridge 1 Jeans Promotional Review

Collaboration jeans are a mixed bag.

Viapiana Custom Denim Review

It may surprise you to see a custom denim maker so high on my list after reading that I thought Ooe Yofukuten made the right decision by discontinuing their custom denim. To be honest, I am slightly surprised myself. The custom vs. non-custom battle is an interesting topic and it certainly is an important factor… Continue reading Viapiana Custom Denim Review

Roy Big Bro 2 Jeans Review

The term ‘living legend’ is one that is often overused. In the world of raw denim and heritage work wear, there are many skilled designers and craftsmen that are rightfully revered, but only one who could possibly live up to this title. Roy Slaper is indeed a living legend not simply because he supposedly crafts… Continue reading Roy Big Bro 2 Jeans Review
